Samsung Galaxy S III to be available for $49.99 from Best Buy on December 16Alex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Best Buy has been the source of several Samsung Galaxy S III sales in the past, and this weekend the retailer is planning to kick off yet another promotion. On Sunday, December 16, Best Buy will be offering the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III for $49.99 with a two-year contract on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. The deal will be available at Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores nationwide and will only be good on December 16.
The Samsung Galaxy S III began hitting U.S. carriers this past summer and features a spec sheet that includes a 4.8-inch 1280x720 HD Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.9-megapixel front-facing shooter and a microSD slot for added storage. These four carrier models were all recently updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which includes Google Now and its information cards as well as Project Butter for a smoother experience throughout the OS.
All of those features make the Galaxy S III (which is still in the top five of both the People's Choice and Editor's Choice lists in PhoneDog's Official Smartphone Rankings) a worthwhile consideration for anyone in the market for a new smartphone, especially at Best Buy's promotional $49.99 price.
