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

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
