The 32GB model of Galaxy S3, which is priced at $249 on two year contract, will arrive for in-store purchases at Verizon after a couple of weeks, but it will be available for online purchase starting July 10.

Meanwhile, Verizon Wireless is implementing its shared data plans before the launch of new smartphone. Samsung Galaxy S3 has been up for preorders at Verizon's Web site since early June. Many of Verizon customers, who preordered the new smartphone, are now receiving notices that the carrier is starting preorder rollout and preorders can reach customer's doors as soon as today.

Arrival of Samsung Galaxy S3 at Verizon will mark the availability of Galaxy S3 across the four major U.S. carriers. Pricing is almost same across the other carriers, except at T-Mobile. T-Mobile is charging $279 and $379 for 16GB and 32GB version of Samsung Galaxy S3 respectively.

In addition, U.S. Cellular and regional carrier C-Spire will also offer Galaxy S3, but none of them announced any release date.

The LTE variant of Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with dual-core Snapdragon processor instead of quad-core Exynos processor, but with 2GB of RAM. The device packs 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with resolution of 1,280 X 720 pixels. It has 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.9-megapixel front facing camera. A big fame to the name of Galaxy S3 is microSD card support up to 64GB (double than other smartphones).

It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich topped by revamped TouchWiz interface. Software features include S Voice, Pop-up Play, S Beam, AllShare Play, Smart Eye tracking and Direct Call.
