Samsung's flagship Android smartphone, the Galaxy S3, will become available with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular in June, Samsung has announced.

The Galaxy S3 is already available in several European countries, and the international version of the device can be bought on Amazon for $799.

Most users, however, will be willing to sign a contract with one of the carriers to shave that price to a more manageable figure. We don't know exactly what it is though, as pricing and availability will be announced by the carriers themselves "in the coming weeks."

As for the device itself, it is one of the most anticipated Android smartphones this year, with a 4.8-inch display, an 8.6mm thin profile, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.4 GHz quad-core CPU and the latest version of Android — Ice Cream Sandwich.
