Even as the Samsung Galaxy S3 is already being offered by three major US-based mobile service providers, Verizon has reportedly pushed back the release date of the latest flagship smartphone from Samsung to July 12 from the initial release schedule of July 10.

T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T are already offering the Samsung Galaxy S3 even as the said device will also be offered by US Cellular and C Spire soon.

Although the website of Verizon showed that the device will become available online by July 12, pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S3 is reportedly on track as reports have indicated that some consumers already received the smartphone while others were informed that the device was already on its way.

The 16GB model of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be sold by Verizon at around $200 while the 32GB model will be priced at about $250. These prices include a two-year service contract. The prices are also similar to the prices of the Samsung Galaxy S3 offerings of Sprint and AT&T.

On the other hand, T-Mobile is offering the 16GB and 32GB models of the Samsung Galaxy S3 at a price tag of around $280 and $330 respectively despite the rebate offered for the devices. However the value plan offer by the mobile service provider will supposedly give the smartphone more value over the cost compared to those offered by its rivals according to a representative from the mobile service provider.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 offered in the US market will feature a dual-core processor, Super AMOLED HD display measuring 4.8 inches and a resolution of 1280 by 720, an eight-megapixel camera and 4G LTE network support. The South Korean company expects sales to surpass the ten million unit level within the month of July and is considered as the main rival to the iPhone of Apple.
