Samsung has finally officially revealed the hotly anticipated Galaxy S3, which confirms a number of rumours about the Korean firm’s new flagship in the past.
At the event, the Galaxy S3 was confirmed to sport a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor.
Past reports claimed the S3 would sport a display ranging from 4.65 to 4.7 inches. Later reports claimed that the superphone would sport a 4.8-inch display. The unveiling confirms that the massive 4.8-inch Super AMOLED with 720p HD resolution.
The unveiling also revealed the superphone’s new design. Unlike the rectangular S2, the S3 sports a curved design like the Galaxy Nexus. The phone will be available in either white or blue, which confirms a previous Carphone Warehouse inventory leak.
Previous reports claimed that the S3 would sport a 12-megapixel camera. However, it launched sporting an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera instead.
It’s no surprise that the new flagship will ship running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with TouchWiz slapped on top.
Samsung claims the Galaxy S3 is the cream of the crop in the mobile arena. Samsung’s Andy Griffiths said, “Our aim with the Galaxy S III was to develop the best smartphone ever made, and by focusing on creating a unique user experience through superior hardware and enhanced usability we believe we have done just that. The device has been created by keeping in mind our daily needs and capabilities as human beings.”
The S3 will be available on the 30th of May. Sadly, no price was mentioned.

According to a new report, the Korean tech giant Samsung may have sent units of the hotly anticipated Galaxy S3 disguised as something else to networks for testing. The prototypes have been sent in fake cases to keep their future flagship from onlookers eager to get their first glimpse of the superphone ahead of launch.
The new comes to us via ET News. If the report is true, this would mean that Samsung has taken a page out of Apple’s book, which involves disguising future devices as current models to prevent leaks.
As of February of this year, Samsung confirmed that it has sold 20 million units of the S2 since its release in April of 2011, making it the most popular Android smartphone in the market. According to recent reports, networks have pre-ordered the superphone amounting to ten million. If this is the case, this would mean that the S3 will be on its way to smashing the Galaxy S2’s sales record.
Specs-wise, the S3 is said to sport a 4.65 inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display, a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a quad-core processor under the hood. Although Samsung has been tight-lipped about their next flagship, it’s a dead cert the superphone will run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).

Wondering when Samsung plans to officially unveil the Galaxy S3? Well, a purported leak of a Samsung event invite has surfaced on the internet, which points towards the S3’s official unveiling on the 22nd of May in London.
The leak also teases the Galaxy S2’s successor in a design we’ve never seen before. Although the leak only shows a part of the phone, the image shows a slim handset sporting a sculptured metal design, which is getting us more excited.
Fast, Vivid, Slim is also mentioned on the invite. Aside from the obvious slim profile, this suggests the phone sporting an HD display and impressive hardware, possibly a quad-core processor like previously reported.
DDaily, a Korean site, claims the S3 will sport a 720p 4.65 inch Super AMOLED Plus display. AsianE says the S3 will come packed with a quad-core processor under the hood and support 4G LTE. We’re hoping all of these rumours are true.
Samsung has not confirmed the invite, which means that this image may be a Photoshop job. Nonetheless, we’re hoping the invite is the real deal, which means that we’ll finally get to see the hotly anticipated smartphone on the 22nd of May.
