I saw this price and almost had a heart attack. It looks like some select e-tailers now have Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S III, the quad-core international version available for sale in the 64GB storage option. US carriers opted for the 16 or 32GB flavors, but now those wanting 64GB of storage can get it. Only it will cost you an arm and a leg.
The folks from Mobile Syrup spotted the international 64GB version being offered up for sale for the low low price of $1167 CAD. Basically only $1,172 USD for those interested. Hey, at least we get free shipping right? That price gets you the same 1.4 GHz quad-core smartphone available internationally but with tons of storage, then of course you can also insert a micro-SD card for even more.
This option is rather amazing if you ask me. Why anyone on earth would pay over $1,100 for a Galaxy S III seems crazy to us. Just get the 32GB option with a 64GB micro SD card and you are set. For those that truly need additional storage (for some unknown reason) I guess this will have to do.
As a reminder the US Galaxy S III features a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, this version for sale is the international flavor with Samsung’s own quad-core instead. We’ve reviewed them both and you can see those links below. Who’s buying?
