Samsung said: "The 64GB model of the Galaxy S III will be available during the second half of this year. The market availability and timing may vary and will be determined at the time."

The firm hasn’t given a more specific time frame for the release or any information on the price of the Galaxy S3 with the highest specification.

We'll have to wait and find out more information but if Samsung waits too long then it will be facing competition from the iPhone 5 which is rumoured to arrive sometime over the next few months.

The Galaxy S3 comes with a 4.8in Super AMOLED screen and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It is one of the three smartphones to be selected to support the latest version of the Sky Go app.
