64GB Samsung Galaxy S3 Outed on Retailer Sites

By - Source: Engadget | B 16 comments

$1000+ device will only be available in black.

Samsung said in July that a 64GB version of the Galaxy S3 will be arriving during the latter stages of 2012. An online retailer listing now suggests the new model will be launching soon, albeit a bit pricey.

Italian retailers ePrice and Marcopolo are selling the 64GB variant of the smartphone for €799 ($1,040). Amazon Germany has also listed the 64GB Samsung Galaxy S3 with a price tag of €704.

The only model showcased on the aforementioned retailers is the onyx edition, suggesting that, at least for now, the 64GB version of the best-selling handset will only be for the black Galaxy S3.

Meanwhile, Samsung is preparing to announce the Galaxy S3 Mini on Thursday.

    This is FAR too much to justify spending on a phone. This model would be strictly for fanboys and nothing more. No one in their right mind could justify a $1000 purchase of a phone that will be outdated in a year... And it's only a damn phone!

    Nice competitive pricing, Samsung. Who are you competing with? Your imagination?

    I'll admit, I've never owned or used a smartphone before - my cell phone serves me perfectly well - so I don't see the entire value of them to begin with. But I can't see any justification for paying $1000 for a smartphone. Not even if it would wake me up, cook me breakfast, and clean up after itself.

    It's most likely not going to be $1000, since that is just the price based on the conversion rate from Euros to Dollars, which also includes VAT (as noted below the price).

    The price will probably be $799 or so, which is still quite high.

    Food for thought...

    The iPhone 5 64gb is 850$ off contract..... Just saying.

    Also, I can't imagine a ton of people buying these outright. It seems like it would just end up being bought on contract.

    Ahh, I will just correct myself, I see that it is 800 euros, not usd. Damn... that's expensive lmao.

    I had a 32Gb iphone 4 and I never got over 40% of used space, now I have a 16Gb SGS3 with a 32Gb microSD.

    I don't see the point of a 64Gb SGS3 if you have a microSD slot on the phone.

    Apple fans have more sense than to bash anything Android related. Unlike iHaters (people that bash Apple). Get it right! heh.

    otacon72Now that's an Applesque pricing move.

    People are comparing Italian prices with the ones practiced in America. To put things in perspective, the iPhone 4S 64GB at the same store costs 995,99€ (1282$).
