[Exclusive Photos] This Is The Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III

The news that one of the hottest phones of the year, the 4.8" Samsung Galaxy S III, is coming to five major U.S. carriers only just hit the wire a few minutes ago, and well, well, well, what do we have here?.. Why, it's the Galaxy S III on Verizon Wireless, in its blurry flesh.

Since Samsung didn't send out any carrier-specific device photos and just regurgitated the pictures of the international version we've all seen hundreds of times, we're at the mercy of the carriers to see just how they bastardize (or leave untouched) the outer shell of each variant.

Galaxy Note For T-Mobile Spotted In The Wild, Probably Not Difficult Since It's Visible From Space

OK, as much as I like to make fun of the Note, it's actually a pretty awesome phone that a lot of people want, and so news that it's coming to T-Mobile is nothing to scoff at. Photos published by TmoNews all but confirm the gargantuan Galaxy is headed to America's pinkest (and leatheriest) carrier, giving credence to a UA string and some FCC filings unearthed last week.

T-Mobile HTC One S Review: The Future Is Now

An Android phone is like a Leatherman Tool. It does a lot of things - without a doubt, a triumph of function over form. Android is the world's most versatile mobile operating system, the most tweakable, the most adaptable, and the most fully-featured. It just does more than any other comparable product out there. But if Android is a Leatherman, the iPhone is the basic Swiss Army Knife - compact, simple, iconic, and good enough for the vast majority of people, even if it does do a little less.

LG Lucid Review: The Budget Smartphone, Evolved

Budget smartphones are a lot like those miniature cans of Coca-Cola you'll find on supermarket shelves - cheaper by the half-dozen than their higher-volume counterparts, but with the obvious catch that you're getting less sweet, delicious corn-juice for your dollar. It doesn't take more than 30 seconds to stop, think about this, and realize that even if you won't finish the big 12oz can during your lunch (or don't want to drink that much soda), you're still basically paying more for choosing to buy less.

New Unknown HTC Device Spotted Rocking Ice Cream Sandwich And Wearing Sense 4.0, Headed To Verizon?

Nowadays, it's not often that we come across some blurrycam shots of a device and don't know what it is, but that's exactly the case here. Luckily, the shots do reveal some information, and there a few other things we can surmise from there.

Assuming they make it into the final product (this is, after all, a prototype), here's what we're looking at for organs:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP camera on the back, VGA front-facing camera
  • WiFi (presumably up to 802.11n) and Bluetooth
  • Android 4.0.1 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • HTC's Sense 4.0
  • LTE

All in all, nothing really impressive, but a respectable showing for a mid-range smartphone.

I absolutely love macro photos, so I've spent the last several weeks playing with this little band and wanted to share my feelings.
