Sprint LogoFollowing a recent announcement that the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S III would be delayed, the carrier confirmed that the Android smartphone will be released on July 1.

Both the 16 GB and 32 GB versions of the device, priced at $200 and $250 respectively, will be available both online and in retail stores. The Galaxy S III originally debuted in the U.S. last Thursday (June 21) on T-Mobile, with an AT&T version expected sometime in the near future. Verizon, meanwhile, isn’t expected to release its own version of the Galaxy S III until July.

The delays, which apparently began due to an inconsistency in the finish of the housing on the Pebble Blue-colored model, certainly aren’t helping Samsung: two million handset shipments that were expected to take place at the end of Q2 will now be pushed to the beginning of Q3. Samsung is still doing well all things considered, however, as it has already sold nearly 50 million phones in this quarter alone (and 44.5 million in Q1).
