Galaxy S III to be among Verizon phones with global upgrade option


New reports have emerged that the Samsung Galaxy S III on Verizon will feature global roaming capabilities unlocked via a future software update, with the carrier confirming the news. Verizon also confirmed that other devices would receive similar functionality, as has been reported previously. For most devices the unlocked global radios look to come as part of upcoming Android 4.0 upgrades, though this won’t be the case for the GS3 as it will ship with Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. When the appropriate update will follow is as much a mystery as the phone’s final release date.
