Samsung Galaxy S III launching in Canada June 20th according to leaked screenshot

Samsung Galaxy S III launching in Canada June 20th according to leaked screenshot
The Samsung Galaxy S III will available on every major Canadian carrier such as Telus, Virgin Mobile, WIND, Videotron, Bell, SaskTel, Mobilicity and Rogers. Reportedly, Samsung is sending over a crew to Canadian retailers and carriers starting May 30th for intensive training on the device. We know that the Samsung Galaxy S III is going to launch overseas at the end of this month, and sometime in June for the States. We also know that like the U.S. models, the Canadian version will offer 4G LTE connectivity.  But when will those up north be able to get their hands on the fastest selling gadget in history?

Mobile Syrup was able to obtain a leaked screenshot from an internal computer system that might just give us the answer. The screenshot shows what might be a newspaper or magazine ad that will soon be viewed by Canadian readers. On the bottom of the ad is a list of some of the major Canadian carriers that will be carrying the phone, and above that, the ad reads "Pre-order Today. Available June 20th". You can't get any clearer than that.

Of course, since this was spotted on a computer screen instead of in a newspaper or magazine, it isn't exactly written in stone. Still, it might behoove those up in Canada to circle the date on their calendar and keep an eye out for the start of pre-orders. And for those in the U.S., this date might reveal a time period when we could see the U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S III get released.

No one else has it right now either. So why be pissed off? If you want one badly enough - pre-order an International version and have it in a couple weeks.

So, Vodafone is offering 2 options for the GS3. Option 1, blue 16gb model, or Option 2, 32gb white model. O2 is offering only the 16gb model in blue or white. I wonder if the US carriers will offer the 32gb in both colors, and when the 64gb model will be released?

If anyone in the States interested in the international version of GS3, you can pre-order one through Newegg with a hefty $750 price tag, which set to release on 6/6.

My friend in Canada akready has it, got it yesterday and posted it on FB. I am half tempted to give him the money to give me one.It has the radio to run on verizon's network so all i will have to do is tweak it's settings which is not hard.

Me too.. I'm one of many people who's really disappointed about the looks of S III but i got mezmerized when i hold the phone and play with it.. Amoled screen is really stunning! Pop up play is cute and it's working even though i'm playing Shadow Gun (3D games), many motion gestures like nobody else.. And many tricks to customize it without using custom launcher.. It's the smoothest phone i've ever seen..
