The Samsung Galaxy S3's release has been pushed back one day for Verizon customers, according to the carrier's website.

The smartphone was originally scheduled to launch on July 9, but now that ship by date has been changed to July 10.

The company will offer the 32GB version for $249.99 and the 16GB model for $199.99.

Verizon did not choose to carry the Samsung Galaxy S2, opting out to gain exclusive rights to the Galaxy Nexus for a limited time.

Samsung first announced that it would be releasing the Galaxy S3 on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint earlier this month.

"In an industry first, Samsung delivers the same iconic smartphone design and premium content sharing experience with customized AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular services starting from $199," said Samsung.

The U.S. version of the device will launch for both 4G LTE and HSPA+ 42 networks. Prices will vary from carrier to carrier with the minimum being $199.

"The U.S. launch of the Galaxy S3 is the most anticipated launch of the year. As promised, we are delivering the 'next big thing' for U.S. customers and across major carriers," said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Telecommunications America. "Galaxy S3 introduces new technological innovation and takes sharing to the next level."

Samsung also will replace its Exynos quad-core processor with Qualcomm's dual-core s4 chip in the U.S. variant of the smartphone.

The Qualcomm chips have the LTE and 42MB HSPA+ speeds that U.S. smartphone owners expect and also keep up with the quad-core processors.

Other specifications for the U.S. model are the same as the international version including a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, a 2100mA battery and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.
