U.S. Cellular and Samsung Telecommunications America, the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the U.S. and the No. 1 smartphone provider worldwide, have announced that the 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy S® III will be available for customers to preorder on June 12 and will be in stores and online in July. Customers will have the option to prepay for the device beginning June 12 and sign up for updates on June 5 at uscellular.com/gs3 . The Galaxy S III smartphone will be offered in a 16 GB version in Marble White and Pebble Blue and a 32 GB version in Marble White. Pricing will be available when the presale begins on June 12.

Customers who purchase the Samsung Galaxy S III from U.S. Cellular receive benefits no one else offers, including new devices faster without resigning contracts, free Battery Swap and the only points-based rewards program in the industry.

“We’re eager to get this iconic smartphone into the hands of our customers so they can experience the 4G LTE network on a powerful device with lots of new, unique and cool features,” said Roberta Winger, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Oregon and California.“Whether you are a first-time smartphone buyer or a seasoned user, the Galaxy S III makes it easy to stay connected to the people and information that are important to you.”

The Galaxy S III is a cutting-edge device designed to enhance your life and make it easier to do the things you need your phone to do, such as messaging, taking pictures, multimedia activities and sharing information. Using revolutionary technology, it’s capable of doing things never seen before with other smartphones. With Share Shot, there is no longer a need to email or download photos. Photos taken can be immediately shared with up to 5 others by synching devices. Photos, calendars, documents and video can be shared simply with S Beam by touching Galaxy S III phones together. The large screen with Trace technology makes text messaging a breeze by swiping between letters instead of typing, and the eight megapixel camera means you can leave your point-and-shoot camera at home.

Highlighted features:
•Pop Up Play: picture-in-picture video capability that enables multi-tasking with other applications such as email
•S Voice: voice control capabilities for applications and the device including taking pictures by saying “cheese,” turn the music player up or down, accept or reject calls and to “snooze” an alarm
•Smart Stay: Intelligent display with eye tracking to ensure the phone stays on when in use
•AndroidTM 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with TouchWiz enhancements
•Advanced 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM
