The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE finally has a release date next to it, after it was initially pegged to be available at the end of March or beginning of April.
According to TmoNews, which got its hands on some official T-Mobile information, the device will be available on May 29 in all channels. T-Mobile will replace the current Samsung Galaxy S3 supply with the new variant.
Gotta Be Mobile has even spotted the device on the T-Mobile website, and managed to go all the way through to checkout, with a T-Mobile sales representative saying that the device is already available. The phone doesn’t appear in the phone lineup on the site at the moment, but you can get to it by searching, as you can see in the screenshot below.
Clicking Learn More will only send you back to the main T-Mobile phone shop page. What you do find out from the site is the price, which is $69.99 + $20 per month for 24 months, a total of $549.99 (if it doesn’t change before the official release).
TmoNews‘ report also includes some information about another Samsung device coming soon to T-Mobile, the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, or SGH-T599, which is T-Mobile’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. It will be available earlier than the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, on May 29, and has a 1 GHz dual core CPU, 5 megapixel camera, as well as a WVGA. The Samsung Galaxy Exhibit runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1 out of the box.

The LTE upgrade with the same device isn’t exciting to me. The next time I get a new handset, it will be LTE; howerver, it will not be the same phone. The T-Mo SGS3 should’ve had an LTE antenna from the beginning IMO.
How ironic that my family just had a terrible experience with Verizon wireless and are now switching to T-Mobile. When we went to switch we found out that Verizon is claiming they offered us 200 bonus minutes in exchange for an added YEAR to the contract on our family plan. When asked when this agreement took place Verizon has no answer always saying they’ll call us back to follow up and never do. My parents have had the same dumb phones for 3 years and there is no way they are still under contract. Verizon are an evil money grubbing company with no costumer loyalty constantly charging more “fees” and always have rising prices while offering less service. Glad to be jumping ship to T-Mobile.
