The Samsung Galaxy S III is undoubtedly one of the more popular phone launches this year, and those that have used Telstra’s 4G network have been keenly awaiting an announcement of the 4G variant of the SGS3 to arrive.
Well, await no more. Telstra have announced this morning that the Galaxy S III 4G will be available from Telstra in October — that’s right, just over a month away. At launch, it’ll run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, with the added excitement of 4G internet speeds and a quad-core processor. All this, in just one device.
Two colours will be available initially – Titanium Gray and Onyx Black, unlike the white and blue variants that the non-4G Galaxy S III sported at its launch a couple of months back.
When you’re in the 4G coverage area, you’ll get ridiculously good speeds if you have good reception — 20mbps is not unheard of in both directions. Where 4G isn’t available, HSPA+ Dual Channel usually is, and it’s pretty fast as well.
