Samsung Galaxy S III Hitting Telstra In Australia On October 9th, Will Arrive With Jelly Bean Out Of The Box

We've all heard the old saying "better late with a newer version of Android than never," right? That's how I've always heard it said, and apparently I'm not alone. Telstra just announced its own variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III, which will be available beginning October 9th.

The Aussie 4G version of the device is basically identical to the international edition:

  • 4.8" SAMOLED display
  • 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor
  • 8MP Rear shooter
  • 16GB storage, microSD Card slot
  • 4G LTE, HSPA+ Dual Channel 3G
  • Android 4.1 with Touchwiz

The good news here is that the superphone will ship with Jelly Bean out of the box, so users won't have to wait for an OTA update to become available to get the latest version of the OS. 

If you've been waiting to get your hands on a 4G GSIII in Australia, the wait is over in ten days.

It seems like everyone's getting a Galaxy S III lately, and C Spire Wireless (formerly Cellular South) didn't want to be left out. If you're unfamiliar with the company, they're a regional provider in the Southeastern US, with a Verizon-sourced regional MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) national network. C Spire operates its own network on its home turf, and that includes a growing LTE footprint. That LTE, for now, is quite limited, basically to a few parts of the Southeast US.
