As the Samsung Galaxy S3 continues to remain popular in the smartphone market, a new model with a much bigger storage space, a 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3,  is set to be released by the South Korean company in the later part of the year.

Samsung recently allayed concerns on the possibility that it will not be offering the device in a much bigger storage option after it revealed that the new model of the smartphone will be released within the year. However it appears that the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3 may be initially released into the international market, which would leave out US consumers for the moment.

According to the company, the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3 will have staggered release dates although it did not specify the release dates themselves and which markets it will be released into. Prior to the announcement that a 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3 will be released by the company, its market share has already increased with the release of the 16GB as well as the 32GB models of the smartphone. With the upcoming release of the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3, the market share of the company is expected to increase further.

Analysts recently revealed that around fifty million smartphone units were sold by Samsung for the second quarter of the year due to the demand for its latest flagship smartphone.

JK Shin, the telecommunications head of Samsung, revealed last month that sales of the Galaxy S3 are expected to reach ten million for the month of July. But Shin did not specify if it were actual consumer sales or simply deliveries to its retailers.

Following its introduction into the European market, the Galaxy S3 was made available through four major US-based mobile service providers. The smartphone has a price tag of around $200 and $250 for the 16GB and 32GB models respectively through AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon. On the other hand, T-Mobile is offering the device at $280 and $330 for the 16GB and the 32GB models respectively. The price of the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3 may be higher due to its bigger storage space.

However it remains uncertain how the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3 will perform in the market particularly with the possible release of the iPhone 5 in the later part of the year.
