Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE release update on T-Mobile

We have some good news for price-conscious consumers out there, especially those that are currently residing on T-Mobile’s books. It was a well known fact last year that the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 did not come with 4G LTE support, unlike the other US variants of the device on the likes of AT&T, Verizon and Sprint.

It was initially thought that Samsung’s popular handset would stay on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network throughout 2013, but now it appears that the US carrier has had a change of heart. New information has appeared, revealing that T-Mobile are actually in the planning stages of releasing a brand new Galaxy S3 with 4G LTE support.

The guys over at TmoNews have provided another of their trusty leaked roadmaps, referencing a Galaxy S3 LTE release date of either March 27 or April 4 – yes, two possible dates have supposedly been mentioned by T-Mobile. There’s no word on pricing unfortunately, but we expect the deal will be good since the handset is now starting to age with phones such as the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 on the way at some point in the year.

Two colors will be available on offer – either Marble White or Titanium Gray, as standard. It goes without saying that hardware specifications will remain the same, so expect features such as a 4.8-inch display, 1GB of RAM, 1.4Ghz quad-core processor and an 8 megapixel camera – certainly very decent specs you would agree.

One area that may be updated though is the Android operating system. The original GS3 launched with Ice Cream Sandwich, but we expect that the T-Mobile Galaxy S3 LTE will come equipped with the latest version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean – fingers crossed on this aspect.

Does this appeal to any T-Mobile customers out there, or is it a case of too little, too late? Let us know if you would be willing to buy this, or if you will opt for a more glamorous upcoming handset instead.

the only reason to support lte now with LTE would be that they plan on selling well after the s4 comes out. you can still buy the S1, do that makes sense. might tick off current S3 owners though.
