It seems that there is a newly-published user agent profile (UAF) that might very well be Verizon’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S3, showing off the possibility of a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running inside instead of Samsung’s recently announced quad-core Exynos CPU that will be making its way to the global version of the smartphone. Granted there is no confirmed proof that the SCH-I535 device is actually Verizon’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S3, but the specifications as well as naming convention do point towards a very high probability of it happening. It will come with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, sporting a display that has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, while it has the SCH-I5XX nomenclature that does follow other premium Samsung handsets on Verizon including the Galaxy Nexus (SCH-I515), Droid Charge (SCH-I510), and the original Galaxy S Fascinate (SCH-I500).

It is interesting to note that Samsung did obfuscate its UAProfs a fair number of times in the past where its high-profile devices are concerned, and this particular profile in question hails from Verizon. What do you think? How will a dual-core processor on the Galaxy S3 affect your purchase decision?
