Telstra To Get 4G Samsung Galaxy S III In October [Updated]

Telstra has today announced that the 4G Samsung Galaxy S III will also be available on its network, but orders won’t be taken until October.

Telstra customers can pre-register for more news about the handset on the telco’s website, but no pricing is being announced yet, unlike Optus which already has 4G Galaxy S III plans in market.

The good news, though is that the device will be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at launch.

The 4G Galaxy S III on Telstra will come in Titanium Grey and Onyx Black. Sorry, red handset fans.

Telstra is promising speeds of between 2Mbps to 40Mbps with the 4G Galaxy S III, with typical upload speeds ranging from 1Mbps to 10Mbps.
