We had all but forgotten about it, but the 64GB version of the Galaxy S III is alive and well. We heard a few reports yesterday that the high-capacity variant was canceled — the source of the news was a notice on a retailer's website that marked the phone as discontinued — but Samsung has confirmed to us that the phone is still in the works and is on track for a release sometime in the second half of this year. Samsung also pointed out that the device has only been announced internationally, so don't expect to see a 64GB Galaxy S III at your local Verizon store any time soon. Full statement below.

"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 of release."
