The Verge reports that Samsung delayed the Galaxy S III availability in the US due to it receiving a last minute RAM upgrade to 2GB. Samsung’s engineers weren’t 100-percent sure that 1GB will be enough to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean smoothly, and hence doubled the about of RAM. An anonymous source told The Verge that Samsung is making the US bound Galaxy S III “future-proof.”
This could spell as a massive problem for international Galaxy S III users, since the device has already been shipping for a few weeks with only 1GB of RAM on board. What if this isn’t enough? Please don’t say that the device will be slow after the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean? Let’s just hope that Samsung’s engineers are already preparing for the next major update after Android 4.1.
