In case you're not up to date with the current events, recent bits of information indicate that the LG Optimus LTE
2 sporting 2 GB of RAM has been announced in Korea. Shortly after, another LG handset boasting the same amount of RAM appeared on the Radar
, bearing the name of LG Eclipse 4G LTE
and hinting towards a US launch via Sprint sometime during Q4 this year.
As the Samsung Galaxy S3 is expected to hit the US market in June, the Japanese carrier NT Docomo has posted a list containing their upcoming handsets, including the Samsung Galaxy S3 which sports a dual-core CPU much like the US version. However, to everyone's surprise the Japanese version shows 2 GB of RAM instead of 1 GB, which is the "usual" amount of RAM expected from the Galaxy S3.
In case this was not a typo and the Japanese Galaxy S3 will indeed pack 2 GB of RAM, this might mean that Samsung feels a bit nervous about the upcoming LG devices and the manufacturer might want to try and cram some more RAM in the SG3 before it hits the US market as well, perhaps to compensate for the lack of a quad-core Exynos chip.
Obviously, this is nothing official, but if this were to be true it would make the Samsung Galaxy S3 an even more appealing handset. True, more RAM means a slightly lower battery life, but at the same time the handset will handle multitasking much better.
We're definitely going to keep an eye on the US Samsung Galaxy S3, as well as the Japanese variant and we hope to hear some good news regarding the matter in the near future.
