Samsung Galaxy S III gets a quad-core version with 2GB of RAM, only for Korea
The Samsung Galaxy S III is launching in a couple of varieties across the globe - internationally, the SGS III with model number GT-I9300 has a quad-core Samsung Exynos chip and 1GB of RAM, and that’s a pretty potent combo already. Stateside, though, the Galaxy S III strips the Samsung Exynos clothing for a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip with a dual-core Krait processor with built-in LTE, but doubles the RAM to 2GB.

Now, here’s a combination that brings the best of both worlds - a Samsung Galaxy S III with both a quad-processor AND 2GB of RAM. Bad news? It’s expected to land only on Korea’s SK Telecom in July. 

Still, here are the technical details that make this silicon beast of a phone so unique:

- quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 with CPU clocked @ 1.4GHz
- 2GB of RAM
- 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD screen
- 4.82 ounces (136.5 grams)
- 0.35 inches (9mm)

Of course, SK Telecom’s GS III features a 2,100mAh battery, like all other versions and comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich preloaded. We don’t expect this to come to stateside, and possibly anywhere else except for Korea, but it’s a hint of what to expect in the near future from high-end handsets. 

Thanks, samsungyesterday!
