Fido may soon carry the Samsung Galaxy S3

Samsung Galaxy S3

Looking to get the Samsung Galaxy S3 in Canada? If you have Fido as your carrier, you’ve probably noticed that this isn’t an option. The good news is that this situation might be changing soon.

The news comes from a leaked image received by Mobile Syrup, which shows a Fido nameplate for the S3:

Interestingly enough, the nameplate suggests that the flagship Samsung smartphone will ship with ICS not Jelly Bean. While not the end of the world, that means you won’t get Google Now and other Jelly Bean features right out of the box. Luckily, all you’ll need to do is perform a simple update.

So when is the Samsung Galaxy S3 coming? It is hard to say for sure, but hopefully sooner rather than later. That said, with the nameplate being the only evidence that the S3 is even coming, I’d take this all with a grain of salt for now.

Would you pick up the Galaxy S3 through Fido if this rumor proves true?
