Verizon & Sprint Galaxy S III Models Hit The FCC

The T-Mobile and AT&T versions of Samsung’s Galaxy S III have been getting our attention in recent days, after we learned through news of the Canadian GS3 launch that both models should feature 2GB of RAM instead of the 1GB present in the international version of the phone. That’s left the Verizon and Sprint versions briefly by the wayside, but they return to our thoughts tonight, upon the FCC publishing the certification paperwork for both models.

Verizon finds itself set to receive the SCH-I535, while the SPH-L710 will be coming to Sprint. Both phones show the requisite frequency support for their respective CDMA carriers, with EV-DO data and LTE for high-speed access.

Verizon’s SCH-I535 has additional support for GSM and EDGE data on the 850MHz and 1900MHz bands, providing some basic global roaming coverage, though without 3G data.
