Sprint to hold exclusive Samsung Galaxy S3 launch event on June 12

June 4, 2012

The next big thing is here, Sprint writes on the banner of the e-mail invitations that the carrier is sending out today, and they want you to be the first on the block to try the phone out. Of course, the next big thing refers to none other than the Samsung Galaxy S3 and its huge 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display. As usual, Sprint was careful not to name any names, but it’s pretty obvious that it will be the S3.

Sprint’s invitation corresponds well to Samsung’s recent official announcement about the coming of Galaxy S3 on major US carriers in the next few weeks.  Samsung Telecommunications America president Dale Sohn said that “The U.S. launch of the Galaxy S III is the most anticipated launch of the year. As promised, we are delivering the ‘next big thing’ for U.S. customers and across all major carriers.”

During the two-hour event, as it’ll run from 7 – 9 pm, there will be hands-on demonstrations of the Samsung Galaxy S3, games, prizes and refreshment. It will be held on Tuesday, June 12 at Cyclorama at the Center for the Arts in Boston.

As for the hardware itself, it’s looking very likely that the specs on each variant will be similar. The US version of Samsung Galaxy S3 is expected to come with a dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor, as opposed to the quad-core Exynos chipset that the international version is sporting, and a whopping 2GB of RAM.

Also, given the close proximity between the announcement and launch date of the phone, with rumors indicating that it will come as early as June 20 in the US, it is unlikely to see too big of aesthetic differences of the Samsung Galaxy S3 on each carrier. But to be on the safe side, let’s just wait until more information leaks from Sprint and other carriers.
