For the storage-hungry among us, the 32 GB of internal storage on the Samsung Galaxy SIII (S3) just might not be enough. Back in August we heard some rumblings about a 64 GB model of the device being on sale from Clove, and now we're hearing a bit more confirmation on the release. Italian retailer ePrice has put up a listing for the device at 800 euros and has confirmed the listing to be real. Unfortunately, the U.S. and U.K. branches of the retailer don't have any details on the release of the device for those regions, adding to the suspicion that this SKU may only be coming to select markets.

If you're lucky enough to live in one of the limited regions that will be receiving a 64 GB model of the S3 (or would like to pay an importer a pretty penny for it) you'll hopefully be able to get your hands on one soon. With a total storage capacity of 128 GB given you use a 64 GB microSD card, that's some serious storage space for a phone.

Galaxy S3 with 64 GB of storage coming to select regions

I bought the Sandisk 64GB MicroSDXC card from Amazon for $44.95 back in August.
(ship & sold by Amazon... I do not buy from third-party Amazon sellers because
90% of Amazon third-party sellers are crooks)

My Galaxy S3 came with 32GB. After I inserted the 64GB card, total capacity
became 96GB.

With a Galaxy S3 that comes with 64GB, a 64GB card increase the capacity to
a whopping 128GB!!! (a little less after formatted, of course)

Apple and Google should be ashamed for not including MicroSD card slots in
their devices! (Nexus devices, in Google's case)

They want to sell you a phone with 32GB onboard at $299 with no 16GB variant available. In those cases where they do offer other variants, if you go for a lower storage unit, they'll be happy to sell you cloud space. What I don't get is how carriers get involved...like Verizon screwing its Galaxy S3 customers out of the free 50GB Dropbox deal. I think they understand that most people throw away data every month, and people finding more ways to use the data that they are being charged for ANYWAY isn't in the carrier's best interests.

Apple Could include an SD card slot, call it an iSlot, charge an extra $100 for the phone, and another million people would buy them with that awesome new technology included!!!!

Should be in the Galaxy Note 2 that's coming to the US before the end of the year. I believe Samsung's event for it is on the 24th of this month.

Already confirmed, yes. Galaxy Note II will have Exynos quad 1.6GHz and LTE in Sprint, US Cellular, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon models.
