Samsung S3 - Why different specs for US vs Global?

by Matt_a    Jun 11, 2012, 8:45 PM

I don't get it. What's the point in Samsung producing the S3 with two different CPUs and two different RAM chips? If I read it correctly, the U.S. (Verizon) version will have a dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM, and the Global version will have a quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. Why?
I (like many of you) have been watching many of the review videos on youtube for this phone, but I'm wondering how different performance will be in the version I will actually get my hands on.
