Recent reports have hinted that the delivery of the Samsung Galaxy S3 of Verizon may be postponed by one day from July 9 to July 10.

The supposed change in the delivery schedule of the latest smartphone from Samsung may not have resulted from the patent lawsuit of Apple. The reports indicated that the change in the release schedule of the Samsung Galaxy S3 of Verizon may be linked to the relationship between Samsung and US-based mobile wireless providers.

Although it may still be possible for the Samsung Galaxy S3 to be delivered by Verizon at an earlier date, a worst-case scenario is necessary to avoid any disappointments among its customers. The Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be delivered around two weeks after the release of the versions for T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint, which will deliver it on July 21.

Despite the delay, the Long Term Evolution or LTE network of Verizon offers a farther reach among all US-based mobile service providers, which would be an added incentive for consumers who are willing to wait for the release of the Samsung smartphone. However some observers have indicated that any delay in the release of the high-end smartphones may affect its sales in the market particular with the Samsung Galaxy S3.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 meant for the US market will feature a Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, eight-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.9MP camera in front. It will also come with a Super AMOLED screen display measuring 4.8 inches.

In addition to the four major US-based mobile service providers, US Cellular is also anticipated to release its own version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 next month. C Spire will also offer its own version within the year.

Some industry watchers have highlighted the importance of network support for the Samsung Galaxy S3 with the increasing competition in the smartphone market. This is further highlighted by the upcoming release of prepaid iPhones which are set to be offered by Virgin Mobile and Cricket before the end of the year.
