Samsung’s 64GB Galaxy S3 is due to launch this coming second half of 2012.
Samsung has discontinued the 64GB flavour but Samsung told The Verge that the new model phone is on track for release later this year. The company said that they will first prioritize the international market. This means that U.S. customers would have to wait longer before it comes into their hands.
The company has released a statement to The Verge:
Its power should be proportion to its storage. With more processing power means more storage for apps. Users demand for higher storage because of newer apps that comes out of the market. Apps of these days are becoming more and more demanding on specs and of course….storage. Especially when it comes to games, 3d games on smartphones nowadays are ranging from 500MB to approximately 1.5GB.
The 16GB and 32GB version has already boosted Samsung’s sales and market share. The demand has given Samsung over the opportunity to sell around 50 million smartphones in just the second quarter, according to a collection of analysts recently polled by Reuters.
Samsung telecommunications chief JK Shin said late last month that he expects Galaxy S3 sales to reach 10 million during July. He wasn’t sure whether he pertains to the shipments to retailers or actual sales to consumers.
After its magnificent debut on Europe, the S3 has now been on the U.S. market, crippling the hearts of gadget lovers. In U.S., it is now available for purchase on four major carriers.Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and Sprintare asking $199.99 for the 16GB version and $249.99 for 32GB model. T-Mobile is slightly higher and sells around $279.99 for the 16GB model and $329.99 for the 32GB edition.
With other smartphones releasing 64GB versions of their smartphones, it is pretty obvious that Samsung will not remain unchanged on their firm stand.
