The Japan customers who are looking forward in getting a new high end smartphone are in luck as the KDDI carrier had just announced that the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE will be made available soon. Of course the device will not be released on the mentioned name, as the Japan version of the S3 LTE will be dubbed as Galaxy S3 Progre. Furthermore, there are some changes if we take a look over the specs list, so for learning more about the KDDI S3 Progre launch date, specs and future price tag, read the following lines.
In fact the Galaxy Progre will be a carrier-based variant of the SGS3 LTE offering a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor (similar with the US version), along with the 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display, 2 GB of RAM memory, 32 GB of internal storage which can be expandable thanks to the memory slot card, an 8 MP camera on the back and a 2.1 MP camera on the front.
The rest of the features are the same with the global variant of the Galaxy S3; in Japan the Progre will be available in two colors, Omega Blue and Marble White. Well, what do you think, are you interested in getting the one of the most popular handsets nowadays, or you rather wait a little bit more until new smartphones are being revealed?
Anyway, you should know that the KDDI Japan Galaxy S3 LTE release date is November 2nd, so you should start saving money guys. The price tag for the S3 Progre will be around 30000 yen, or less depending on the commitment you decide to sign with the carrier.
Now, we do know that the OTA Jelly Bean update will soon arrive for the US SGS3, so I’m guessing that there won’t be long until we will see the same offered for the Japan customers, meaning that the OS “issue” will soon be resolved. However, with or without the OS improvement, we have to admit that this is one of the best smartphones ever manufactured.
