Posted By | On 03rd, May. 2012

Samsung’s keynote is live now, and they have officially unveiled the lid off their flagship Galaxy phone – the Samsung Galaxy S III.

It seems like the embargo was broken early, but who cares, we have a lot of information on this amazing phone from Samsung.

The phone uses a Super AMOLED screen, much like the Galaxy S II, and also features a host of new apps for Android 4.0.

Let’s get straight to the specs first:

  • 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display at 720p resolution
  • 8-megapixel primary
  • 1.9-megapixel front-facing cameras with burst and best-shot modes
  • 16 or 32GB of storage with microSD expansion
  • Bluetooth 4.0 support
  • GPS with GLONASS reception high-throughput 40MHz 802.11n Wi-Fi
  • 2,100mAh battery

Samsung has announced that Flipboard Android app will be exclusive to the phone when it launches. It will also have an iPhone 4S equivalent Siri voice app called the S Voice.

The pricing has yet to be revealed, but the phone will be available in May for Europe and a bit later in Asia. Rest of the world have to wait even longer.

“With the GALAXY S III, Samsung has maximized the consumer benefits by integrating superior hardware with enhanced smartphone usability,” said JK Shin, President and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung.

“Designed to be both effortlessly smart and intuitively simple, the GALAXY S III has been created with our human needs and capabilities in mind.

“What makes me most proud is that it enables one of the most seamless, natural and human-centric mobile experiences, opening up a new horizon that allows you to live a life extraordinary.”

The phone will be available in 145 countries, and on 296 mobile operators around the world, which makes it the most largest launch in Samsung history.
