64GB Samsung Galaxy S III Smartphone Still in the Works
Earlier this week, U.K.-based retailer Expansys reportedly halted orders for the 64GB smartphone, prompting speculation that Samsung had pulled the plug on the model.
On the contrary, Samsung said today that the device is still in the works.
"The 64GB model of the Galaxy S III will be available during the second half of this year," Teri Daley, vice president of Samsung Mobile U.S. public relations, said in a statement. "The market availability and timing may vary and will be determined at the time of release."
Depending on your location and provider, the Samsung Galaxy S III comes in three models – 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB.
Samsung made it clear, though, that the 64GB version of the phone has not been announced in U.S. markets, where some retailers are slowly rolling out the mid-sized model alongside its smaller counterpart.
The smartphone boasts a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED 1,280-by-720 display, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It features an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and 1.9-megapixel front-facing one. It is available on all four major U.S. wireless carriers, plus U.S. Cellular and C Spire here.
