NTT Docomo has confirmed to us that its variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III will have 2GB of RAM. The number one Japanese carrier's model, named the SC-06D, will also feature a 1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor instead of Samsung's quad-core Exynos, presumably because of its compatibility with Docomo's Xi LTE network. We've already heard that LTE variants of the phone in the US will use a dual-core processor, but it's important to note that Docomo's model is a separate version — it has other features specific to the local market such as a 1seg TV tuner, so the expanded RAM may well remain exclusive to Japan. Still, with LG's Optimus LTE 2 featuring the same amount of memory, it seems that 2GB of RAM could become the new standard for high-end Android smartphones soon enough.
