Samsung has now confirmed previous rumors that the Samsung Galaxy S III will be making its way to Canada on June 20th. In a press release today, the company announced that its Android 4.0-based smartphone will be available from a wide variety of Canadian wireless carriers.
The version of the Galaxy S III that will ship to Canada will have some differences compared to the version that was made available for sale in some European countries earlier this week. The biggest difference is that the Canadian version will have a dual core 1.5 Ghz Snapdragon S4 processor, while Europeans can buy one with Samsung's own quad core chip inside. The Canadian version will have 2 GB of RAM.
The version of the Samsung Galaxy S III that will have LTE support (SGH-i747) will be sold by Bell Mobility, Virgin Mobile, SaskTel, TELUS and Rogers Wireless. The SGH-iT999 version, which supports HSPA+ networks, will be available from Videotron, Wind and Mobilicity. 16 GB and 32 GB versions will be available. Pricing depends on which carrier Canadians will pick.
There's still no word on when the US will get their hands on the Galaxy S III, although it seems likely it could be released on or around the same day as the Canadian launch.
