carrier's version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. The device has been given the model number SPH-L710 which corresponds with Sprint. The specs almost match perfectly with the GT-I9300, which is the international version of the heavily anticipated handset. The major difference between the Sprint model and the global variant is that as expected, Sprint's device doesn't carry the quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos 4412 processor under the hood and instead features the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 S4 processor.
Recently a user agent profile for the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S III revealed that this variant of the phone would also have the Qualcomm MSM8960 under the hood instead of the quad-core Exynos processor., As previously explained, both the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and the quad-core Exynos processor do not work together with an LTE radio forcing Samsung to make the change in the U.S. where LTE use is rapidly expanding.
The model listed on the user agent profile shows 16GB of native storage. There are three versions of the phone, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB and the Samsung Galaxy S III will feature a microSD slot with 64GB of capacity. The SPH-L710 will come to market with Android 4.0.4 installed out of the box. While no launch date has been announced, Samsung has said that the Stateside models of the Samsung Galaxy S III will be released sometime next month.
