Samsung pushes back Galaxy Premier's launch date to late January
Sad news for those who have been expecting this fancy device - the Galaxy Premier. Some unofficial sources claim that the handset won't be released until the end of January, which is a shame as it was earlier expected to arrive in November or December. The handset will not be available everywhere, though, as Samsung is planning to release it in a number of European and Asian countries.

The Galaxy Premier is powerful smartphone with a 4.65" HD Super AMOLED screen, TI OMAP 4470 SoC with a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, a gig of RAM and 8 GB internal memory. All in all, it's very similar to the Galaxy S III, with a few small exceptions like the lack of LTE.

Phone is missing the additional 1 Gb of RAM compared to GS III on U.S. versions. Just buy a GS III.

People act like no LTE is the end of the world. It's more than likely not even coming to the U.S. It's going to European & Asian markets where LTE is mostly undeveloped.

it is for some people. Some people use there phones on the go and LTE helps out if your doing alot of data transfers or you just want good netflix. But this phone isnt ment for the US market hence the lack of LTE. It just feels like a bit bigger skyrocket anyway.

I guess it could suck if you're on Verizon or Sprint, but on AT&T, you'll still decent speeds on HSPA+, & T-Mobile's HSPA+42 is very comparable to LTE in most places. I get an average of 15 down with spikes of 20-25 on it.

I agree, HSDPA+ is also fast and takes less battery. But here in Sweden we have a very good coverage of LTE, even in a small village like I am living in :)

Like GS3 mini, this phone is also overpriced.

It's more similar to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus from hardware specs...
