In case you’re looking to buy an Android flagship handset this year, and you haven’t had the chance to upgrade yet, you may want to check out a special Galaxy S3 deal today.

The 16GB Samsung Galaxy S3 version is available for just $499.99, and before you ask, we’re looking at the GT-I9300 unlocked Galaxy S3 GSM model. That means the device features a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos Quad processor and 1GB of RAM. It’s also worth pointing out that this specific model lacks LTE support out of the box, so in case you want an LTE-enabled flagship handset the GT-I9300 isn’t for you.

The handset ships with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich on board, but is upgradeable to Jelly Bean.

As always, with such special deals, there’s a limited quantity available at this price, with 96 units being sold by top-rated seller johny641 at the time this post was written.

Will you take advantage of the offer, or will you buy a different handset?
