Earlier today, EE confirmed the lineup of 4G devices that will launch with the United Kingdom's first LTE network in the coming months. One of those was the Samsung Galaxy S III, and there are a number of reasons why you might want to choose this handset over the others.

Not only is it Samsung's latest flagship device, which means it's one of the hottest Android handsets available, but it will also launch with the latest and greatest Android software. That's right — the Galaxy S III will launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed on EE, according to a specifications sheet provided by the carrier today.

We already know that Jelly Bean will be making its way to every Galaxy S III handset out there "very soon." But at the moment, it's looking like EE's handset could be the first to get the new software.

And that's not all. EE's handset will also boast a quad-core processor.

But the Galaxy S III has a quad-core processor anyway, right? Sure, if you buy the 3G version. In the United States, the Galaxy S III with LTE only features a dual-core processor, because quad-core processors and LTE chips haven't always been the best of buddies.

It's likely that battery life will take a hit with a quad-core CPU and LTE connectivity. But who cares when you have the fastest smartphone money can buy?
