Sprint Galaxy S3 Specs

Also, any reason to believe it might be global capable down the line like the Verizon model or are they really using different hardware?

Mustang... So these LTE Chips now wouldn't be able to use all the spectrum from Sprint? Just 1900mhz? I was thinking since the Phone is basically the same across the board that it would make sense to incorporate all the radios in at once. Since its not going to fully roll out till the end of next year I'll worry about it then. For now i want one!

Thanks for the info though.. I did think it was all part of the samething.

The 800mhz CDMA band is supported, but not LTE. I think this is something that a lot of the tech blogs keep forgetting to mention in the reviews. The fact that Sprint hasn't even given a speculated date for a rollout, but they are releasing LTE phones only supporting the inferior band of the 2 bands they will support. Here is the link to the EVO 4G LTE on PhoneArena, notice the supported LTE band.

Really? You've been a bit out of touch on the subject. All the North American carriers' versions are the dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 instead of the Exynos Quadcore because the Snapdragon more easily facilitates the LTE radio that the North American carriers think we all want.

That S4 keeps up with the quad cores in most benchmarks, and is speculated to have really good battery life too. Plus, Samsung threw us a bone with the 2GB RAM, which is really nice.

No new surprise here, those following it have known for a month or two.

Can you take slow motion video like you can with the EVO? Nope.. making this phone a deal breaker for many of the X-Gamers out there. The slow motion video on the EVO is AWESOME!!!

What I'm really wondering is if it will have a SVDO radio, like the HTC EVO 4G LTE and the LG Viper, that allows simultaneous voice and data over 3G. This is vital since it will be a while before we get LTE.

someone needs to put this s3 on the test bench and check its radio reception signal and wifi reception. I have gone on several business trips and the reception both wifi and cell signal strength seems to be marginal. I use it side by side other devices and the S3 will in some cases not even get a signal or such a weak one that it is unusable when my macair and blackberry phone are full strength on wifi. I have exchanged the s3 for a different one at ATT but it is still the same. A lot of time I have to disable wifi because it defaults to it but the signal strength is like 1 bar which will not allow the phone to function and I just use 4g or 4glte which ever it happens to be in my area. Anybody else noticed any less than par signal reception?
