Seems like customers in Korea will have their LTE and eat it, too.

The Samsung Galaxy S3, globally offered as a quad-core device without LTE, will now be available with LTE capabilities on Monday for three Korean carriers: KT, LG U+, and SK Telecom.

In the United States, major carriers (save for T-Mobile ) do offer the S3 on LTE, but these models are powered by a dual-core CPU instead .

According to Samsung, it will also bump up the new S3's RAM from 1GB to 2GB, but it will retain the same 2,100mAh battery.
