Quad Core Samsung Galaxy S III 4G Coming to Optus and Telstra, Available With Android 4.1 From the Start!

Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S III 4G is coming to Australia and it not only brings the latest type of connectivity, but also the latest software: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The 4.8 inch quad core smartphone is coming via Optus and Telstra, the biggest players on the Australian market.

It will reach Telstra in October and it will grace the Optus freshly launched LTE network with its presence this month. It’s interesting to see Exynos and LTE setup here, know that for example the US LTE version replaced the quad core Exynos CPU with a Snapdragon S4 dual core one. The device will be available in grey and black on Telstra and white and blue on Optus. I’m curios if this version gets 2GB or 1GB of RAM, although I have a feeling it’s the former.

From what I can see on the Optus site, you can get the phone with a $30 plan for 24 months and either pay $504 outright for the quad core handset or $21 monthly just for it. The carrier also promises free delivery and next day delivery.
