Samsung Galaxy S III launches globally; still no word on U.S. versions

Samsung’s flagship smartphone for 2012 is now available in 28 countries around the world but unfortunately, the United States is not one of them. The Galaxy S III Android smartphone saw record demand ahead of its launch, and now the handset is available in more than two dozen markets globally. First announced at a press conference in London earlier this month, the Galaxy S III features an ultra-thin design that was inspired by nature. Spec highlights include a quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos processor, a 4.7-inch 720p HD display, an 8-megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a case that is just 8.6 millimeters thick. The international version of the Galaxy S III is currently available for preorder in the U.S., however carrier-branded versions not expected to launch until some time this summer.
