Samsung Galaxy S III coming to T-Mobile, evidence suggests
There is a Samsung smartphone out there bearing the model name SGH-T999, and we now think we know what device we are actually dealing with. At first it was presumed that the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G was behind that model name, and later the yet-nonexistent Samsung Galaxy Nexus for T-Mobile, but neither of this two speculations was on the right track. In fact, it is now believed that the Samsung SGH-T999 is actually a Samsung Galaxy S III model for T-Mobile.

Here is why: there is a Samsung Galaxy S III hands-on video online taking a quick look at the AllShare feature that comes with the device, along with some other gimmicks from Samsung. Interestingly, among the devices listed in the application are three Galaxy S III units, as indicated by the SGH-i9300 model name, and the aforementioned SGH-T999, which might very well be a Galaxy S III variant for T-Mobile, if our intuition is not mistaken. Either way, the device given that model name is surely bound for T-Mobile, as indicated by the "T" in front of the three digits.

That the Samsung Galaxy S III is coming to the U.S. in June is a given fact, although no U.S. carrier has yet announced plans to offer the smartphone. While the Samsung Galaxy S was available through all four major U.S. carriers, a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II was present on the shelves on only three of them, since Verizon preferred to launch the Samsung Galaxy Nexus instead.

The hands-on video in question is embedded below, and the evidence is present right after the 5:53 mark, so feel free to check it out for yourself. Does a potential Samsung Galaxy S III launch on T-Mobile get you excited?

Thanks for sending this in!

Great hardware... But poor design. If i buy this specially unlocked, it'll be a nightmare looking at it.

Nightmare?! Why you still commenting articles about s3 if you see its design is a nightmare. And in every article photos of s3 is included.

Im sure tmobile subscribers will be happy for this news, despite its ugly design as what others continue to complaining about.

Design is not important anymore, why you need a beautiful design if can't even meet your important needs in a phone. A faster processor, great screen display and innovative softwares are most important now.

I love it when it come to T-Mobile. People that are complaining about Galaxy S3 designed and looks buy a different phone.

Tmobile is the only carrier that hasnt had the S4 rumor, so until that crap starts up, im holding my breath for exynos. This might be one of the best/only benefits about them being last to LTE.

Since Htc one s on tmobile is already based on s4...tmobile may decide to go with exynos...just to differentiate two devices...and I'll be happy :)

T-Mobile is always disappointing with phone's news.

Pray to lord that T-Mobile will be getting the GS3 with the Exynos.

I am a T-Mobile subscriber myself, and I got disappointed many times already.

I had pretty much presumed the GS3 was coming to all the major carriers

Hopefully quad core version first and dual core S4 version once LTE is ready. My friends who are looking for new phones will be happy.
