With the Samsung Galaxy S III finally revealed, the next question will be its availability for Malaysia. The previous Galaxy S II it took nearly 6 months to launch in Malaysia. This time Samsung will be extra quick in rolling out. Mr. Lee Jui Siang, the Director of Regional Mobile Business unit for this region has said with great confidence that the Samsung Galaxy S III will debut in Malaysia in early June.
This is a breakthrough for Samsung that marks probably its fastest mobile product roll out ever. European markets will be getting it as early as 29 May with other countries getting it shortly after. As comparison, Sony launched the Xperia S in Malaysia within 2 months while HTC took about 1 month to launch the One X with all 4 telcos simultaneously. Being a flagship device for Samsung this year, we are expecting something better if not similar to HTC in terms of Malaysian launch.

LG recently has announced its Optimus LTE 2 smart phone which comes with a whooping 2GB of RAM. That’s double of most high end smart phones today including the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S III. Having double the amount of RAM does help in multi-tasking especially when running intensive apps concurrently.
Besides the memory, the Optimus LTE 2 also comes with True HD IPS display (obviously a jab at PenTile displays) that pushes 1280×720 pixels, a generous 2,150 mAh battery and runs on the latest Ice Cream Sandwich. There’s no mention of processor and storage but it is likely to be a dual-core processor, which is typical for LTE devices these days.
Another interesting feature is its wireless charging capabilities. Details are scarce at the moment but is said to be compliant with Wireless Charging standards. The device will hit the South Korean markets end of this month. We wonder if LG will be releasing an international version (non-LTE) as well.
