If consumers were not confused enough with the differences between the Samsung Galaxy S3 models then 3 Mobile has set out to d even more damage by launching what they call the Galaxy SIII Ultrafast edition in Pebble Blue & Marble White colour schemes!
Up until now, the 4G enabled Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE has only been available in Titanium Grey and Marble White colour schemes, but with networks other than EE getting ready to launch their 4G services there is a raft of new phones hitting the market in preparation.
3 Mobile have launched what they are calling the Samsung Galaxy S3 Ultrafast which until they launch their 4G network will connect using DC-HSDPA which is faster than the usual HSPA+ connections, so far the network is only offering the Pebble Blue and Marble White colour schemes of the Ultrafast phone.
Vodafone have now confirmed that their new 4G Galaxy SIII is the i9305 which offers double the RAM of the 3G i9300 model but strangely state that their handsets come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box which then upgrades to Android Jelly Bean, that said they call Android 4.1 Ice Cream Sandwich on their website!
Vodafone have released 3 colour schemes of the 4G model; the Samsung Galaxy S3 4G Sapphire Black, Pebble Blue and Marble White which are all confirmed as being the Samsung i9305.
