Two years later, Samsung is still spamming out new Galaxy S III models

Samsung Galaxy s3 slim

Samsung just released a new version of its Galaxy SIII in Brazil, and it is called the Galaxy S3 Slim. It’s not a fancy new phone like the recently announced Galaxy S5, but a cheaper alternative that is meant to appeal to those on a budget. It looks just like the SIII, but is a tad slimmer and has worse specs. The Slim, which was spotted by Sam Mobile, has a 4.5-inch screen, a 5 MP camera, and will run the out-of-date Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The device will come with 1 GB of memory and 8 GB of storage. Despite its slimmer shape, the device will be heavier than the SIII, weighing in at 139 grams (compared to the SIII’s 133 grams). Samsung’s release of the Slim looks to be following a similar strategy as Apple, which released a cheaper 8 GB iPhone 5c today. Still, Samsung is taking this strategy even further, as the SIII was already a two-year-old phone.

MetroPCS adds Galaxy S III, promises cheap unlimited data for Samsung fans

MetroPCS Adds Galaxy S III

At long last, prepaid wireless carrier MetroPCS (PCS) has a popular high-end device to go with its low-cost data plans. MetroPCS on Friday announced that it will now offer customers the Samsung (005930) Galaxy S III, although they’ll have to pay the full $499 to get it since MetroPCS isn’t subsidizing it. On the other hand, customers willing to pay the upfront expenses could save money on their wireless bills in the long run since they’ll be able to take advantage of the carrier’s $55 monthly plan that delivers unlimited voice, text messaging and LTE data on a single line. MetroPCS, which recently agreed to merge with T-Mobile, is one of the few wireless carriers still waiting for Apple (AAPL) to give it the green light to sell the iPhone. The company’s full press release is posted below.

As The Droid RAZR HD And HD MAXX Hit VZW, Amazon Drops The Price Of The Samsung Galaxy S III To $99

razrhd

The Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD have pranced their way across a stage or two, and they’re even the stars of a new commercial, but today you’ll get to go face-to-face with the hot new Googorola phones at a Verizon store for $199 and $299 respectively.

This also marks the beginning of a new price cycle for the carriers, which seems to be starting at Amazon Wireless, where the $199 Galaxy S III has been dropped to $99 on Verizon and Sprint.

Sprint, as you may recall, will be getting the Samsung Galaxy Note II on October 25 for $299.

The Droid Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD mark the continuation of a profitable alliance in Verizon and Motorola, and solidify it with Google as a new backbone for Motorola after the $12.5 billion acquisition. But it’s also worth remembering that these phones ship with Android 4.0.4 ICS. Not Jelly Bean.

Whatever the case, these are top-of-the-line phones, with 4.7-inch Super AMOLED HD 720p displays, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processors, and an 8-megapixel shooter that captures 1080p video. Not to mention a super thin Kevlar fiber casing.

And to top that off, Motorola promises great battery life, which is a struggle for all of us. The Droid Razr HD and Maxx HD have 2530 mAH and 3300 mAH batteries respectively, promising something like 16 and 21 hours of straight usage.

Both super phones are available now at Verizon.
