The Samsung Galaxy S3 Developer Edition is now available on the company's website.
According to the site, this model is only available in Pebble Blue and retails at $599 without a contract.
The device's main feature is its unlockable bootloader. The Verizon version currently ships with a locked bootloader, making it more appealing to those who own the Galaxy S3 on Big Red.
Samsung also announced that the 32GB developer version will be available soon.
The company issued the first security update for the AT&T Galaxy S3 at the end of last week that fixed a few small issues including the device prematurely asking for an unlock pin. It also "dumbs down" Google's unified search function, which makes contacts, apps and mail search unavailable there.
The search feature had to be altered due to patents that Apple currently holds for Siri. Samsung more than likely wants to avoid getting into another legal battle with its number one competitor.
AT&T will also release Galaxy S3 in Garnet Red on July 15 in its online store. It will also be available at the carrier's retail locations on July 29.
This version will feature the same specifications as the regular AT&T model that includes a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel camera, S Voice, and NFC (near-field-communications), 4G LTE connectivity, and a dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip.
The two models currently available on the carrier are the 16GB white and blue versions, according to AT&T's online store. It offers the device for $199 on a 2-year contract.
AT&T had stated last month that it was going to be the only company to release a red version of the Android handset. However, during its initial launch, no word of the red model had been mentioned.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is also expected to receive the 4.1, JellyBean update in the fourth quarter of 2012.
