The company issued a press release earlier today that outlined the company's plan for the smartphone.

"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.

It also features S-Voice, an artificial intelligence system that allows owners of the device to control their most used applications and services with words instead of touch. Users can also turn the volume up or down on their music, answer or reject calls, shut off or choose to snooze the alarm clock, and take a picture simply by speaking commands with S-Voice.
