Retailer Expansys says unlocked black Samsung Galaxy S III to be available October 24th
Did Samsung release its flagship Android phone too soon? At the time the device launched, OEMs had a choice of LTE connectivity or quad-core chips. Of course, in the modern times we now live in (a few months later) the quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 allows smartphone owners to have the best of both worlds. The U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S III offers dual-core power, but does have LTE connectivity and 2GB of RAM. The international version offers a quad-core Exynos 4412 processor and 1GB of RAM.

It is the international version that is going to be available unlocked in black starting on Wednesday. The phone originally launched in Marble White or Pebble Blue and some new colors have been added over time. Expansys will have the unlocked, black Samsung Galaxy S III priced at 409.99 GBP ($657 USD). We're not sure if this price includes VAT, but what's the difference? You're getting a black Samsung Galaxy S III! AT&T or T-Mobile customers will be able to use the device in the states. The question is, are you so much better off having a black model of the phone with a quad-core processor that you are willing to skip on LTE connectivity and 2GB of RAM?
