Boost Mobile has announced the availability date for the Samsung Galaxy S III. The handset will be available for purchase beginning on June 12th and it will be priced at $399.99. The handset will bring 4G LTE support, which for Boost customers means 88 markets across the US.

When outside a Boost Mobile LTE market the handset will fall back to 3G speeds. Otherwise, those making the purchase can expect to find a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera that is capable of recording 1080p video.

The Boost Mobile Galaxy S III will be running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz and sporting other features such as gestures for quick access to the camera as well as Smart Sleep, video picture-in-picture multi-tasking and support for the TecTiles by way of NFC. Aside from getting a contract-free Galaxy S III, those choosing to go with Boost Mobile can also grab the handset on one of the shrinking payment plans.


The Boost Mobile plan begins at $55 per month for unlimited talk, text and picture messaging. The plan also includes unlimited web. The shrinking payments part comes with six on-time payments. Each time you make those six on-time payments you will see your monthly rate drop by $5 with the eventual low price reaching $40 per month.

While we have the Boost Mobile availability date, another carrier is also expected to release the Galaxy S III. That other carrier is Virgin Mobile, however they have yet to come forward with a specific release date or price. As of now the Virgin Mobile launch is set for sometime during the month of June.
