With the imminent arrival of the Galaxy S4, price of the Samsung Galaxy S3 drops

AT&T today announced a significant price drop for the Samsung Galaxy S3, which will now be available for just $99, with a 2-year contractual commitment.
April 1, 2013

Everyone wants to switch to the “latest and greatest” device manufacturers have to offer, but if the required investment is a little out of your reach, the great news is that with the arrival of the newest flagships, the price of last year’s top devices drop significantly, allowing you to pick up a more than decent high-end smartphone at a very economical rate. This is certainly the case with the Samsung Galaxy S3!

With the imminent arrival of the Galaxy S4, AT&T today announced that the Samsung Galaxy S3 would be available for $100 cheaper! That is, the 2012 Samsung flagship could be yours for just $99, but, of course, with a 2-year contractual commitment. Samsung has sold over 50 million S3s globally, and that number is only going to keep rising with the price drop, especially if you aren’t looking to shell out the $249.99 required for the Galaxy S4 from AT&T, but are still in the market for a high-end smartphone.

$99 gets you a smartphone with a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1280×720 resolution, 1.5Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor (in the US), 16/32/64 GB internal storage expandable via microSD, 2GB RAM (in the US), 8MP rear camera and 1.9MP front camera, 2,100 mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on-board.

Even though AT&T is the first, don’t worry if you’re on another network, or another country, because every network carrier and retailer that offers the Samsung Galaxy S3, and is planning to sell the Galaxy S4, will be announcing similar price drops soon.
