By CBR Staff Writer

Samsung has revealed that its Galaxy S III smartphone will be launched with five US major carriers beginning in June.

The company said Galaxy S III will be available on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, along with US Cellular starting later this month at a cost of $200 with a two-year contract.

Samsung Telecommunications America president Dale Sohn said the US launch of the Galaxy S III is the most anticipated launch of the year.

"As promised, we are delivering the ‘next big thing’ for US customers and across all major carriers," he added.

"Galaxy S III introduces new technological innovation and takes sharing to the next level."

Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S III weighs 4.7 ounces, 8.6 millimetres thin, and has 4.8 inch display delivering processing power to allow more applications to be accessible simultaneously.

The Galaxy S III includes Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWiz enhancements, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz dual core CPU and 2GB of internal RAM.

Users can avail the content sharing experience on the Galaxy S III in sharing and editing a presentation with a large group in real-time, sending digital images to several other smartphones at the same time or transferring large files within seconds from one phone to another.

Samsung’s content sharing service with AllShare Play, automatically notifies the Galaxy S III to Samsung HDTVs, mobile tablets, laptops and other consumer electronic devices on the same network that are ready to receive video files.

S-Beam provides transfer of files, such as videos and documents, without needing a Wi-Fi connection or cell signal.

With AllShare Group Cast on the Galaxy S III and a Wi-Fi network, users can share and collaborate on documents, presentations or images in real-time with multiple friends or co-workers’ without loading the file separately, the company noted.

Other key features include Share Shot to share pictures taken with the Galaxy S III’s 8 megapixel camera to other phones from up to 200 feet away, and S-Voice feature that allows users to control the applications and services used most with words instead of touch.

Exact pricing and retail availability will be announced by each of the five carriers in the coming weeks.
