Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE Complete Specifications : Has 2GB of RAM, Ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, Coming Soon via Globe Postpaid!

By now, most consumers should have already become aware of Samsung's strategy for dominance in the handset market, which is to saturate it with as many smartphone models as possible.

That would have been kind of annoying really if weren't for the fact that the Korean company's current releases are actually rather hot.

Take Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, for instance, which is set to be released in the Philippines early this quarter via Globe Postpaid.

It looks exactly like the regular flagship model released last May 28, 2012 - flaunting the same sleek, nature-inspired, pebble-like design - but it has three things that make it far more special.

First, as its very name suggests, it supports 'breakneck' LTE mobile data speeds of up to 100mbps allowing users to enjoy online content and to do more on the internet like never before. According to our sources, Globe could very well bundle this handset with their upcoming mobile LTE postpaid plans unleashing its fullest potential when it comes to connectivity.

Second, compared to its predecessor that has only 1 GB of RAM, Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE boasts of 2GB of random access memory making it far superior in terms of multi-tasking.

Finally, the handset ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system right out of the box! Jelly Bean, the latest version of Google's mobile OS, comes replete with a slew of exciting features including buttery smooth touch response, offline Voice Typing, Google Now, and an improved camera app, among many others.

Aside from these, almost all other technical specifications of SGS3 LTE are similar to the regular version, including its 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, Quad Core 1.4 GHz Exynos 4212 CPU, 8 MegaPixel autofocus camera with back-illuminated sensor and LED flash, 1080p 30fps video recorder, and WiFi and Bluetooth support.

No word yet from Globe Postpaid on its exact release date nor the plans with which they intend to bundle the handset, but I'm expecting the elegant 'Globe Exclusive' Sapphire Black Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE to be announced within October along with the formal introduction of the company's top tier mobile LTE postpaid plans.
