According to IBTimes UK, BGR has received information about the smartphones line-up which will be available on Verizon this summer. It includes the Galaxy S3, but it is not clear when the carrier will start selling the Samsung smartphone.
"If AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile all carry the Galaxy S3, Verizon will need to have something special up its sleeve," claims Phones Review. Moreover, Verizon did not carry Galaxy S2 which might have disappointed Verizon users. Instead, the carrier opted to carry the Galaxy Nexus. This time tech fans are expecting Galaxy S3 to be carried by Verizon. It is reported that several Verizon subscribers are waiting for the Galaxy S3.
The new Samsung Kies application mentions the formal name of Samsung smartphone. It shows two versions, GT-I9300 and GT-I9300T. The "T" mentioned for the second version suggests the smartphone to be a available on T-Mobile as the T-Mobile Samsung Nexus S had an identical label, i9020T.
Tech fans will have to wait for the official confirmation about ICS updates for the devices.
