Closer Look And Hands-On With The Samsung Galaxy S III - The Most Interesting Phone Of The Year So Far, And We're Only Just Scratching The Surface

The Galaxy S III, announced at a highly anticipated event last week, immediately impressed me with its advanced software. Samsung has stuffed the SGS III with so many features that my mind explodes every time I try to remember all of them - and what you saw during the unveiling is only half the story. There's more, a lot more, which is why the S III is going to be the most interesting Android phone to play with and review this year.

On the hardware front, "the next Galaxy" is quite beefy, and the only letdowns for me were the likely lack of LTE in the quad-core version and the looks.

Sprint's Samsung SPH-L300 Image And Supposed Specs Leak - It's Not The Galaxy S III, But Has ICS

It's nothing new for images or specs of a device to leak prior to its announcement, but this time it does dash the hopes of some Android fans to bits. The Samsung SPH-L300 for Sprint was first leaked in a user profile that lacked any real information. It was put forth that this could be the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S III already in testing, but if this new leak is to be believed, this is a completely different and thoroughly mid-range device.

Keeping in mind that none of this is confirmed, the SPH-L300 has NFC, an unusual wrap-around metal (or fake metal) bezel design, and it's about 12mm thick.

Samsung Galaxy SIII 16GB Now Available For Pre-Order For £499.95 From Amazon UK

Update: It looks like Amazon Germany also has the device up for pre-order for the slightly lower price of EUR 588.90 ($766.34). There is no release date indicated, but the earlier press release suggests it will be available from May 29th, 2012.

Samsung's next flagship smartphone finally launched last week and we spent many paragraphs proffering our opinions on it. Most of us cannot wait to get our grubby hands on it, but it looks like UK customers will be getting it pretty soon, as the Galaxy SIII has gone up for pre-order on Amazon UK.

The 16GB version of the Galaxy SIII in Pebble Blue or Marble White will retail for £499.95 ($806.67) and will be available from the expected release date of May 30th, 2012.

The Samsung Galaxy S III: The First Smartphone Designed Entirely By Lawyers

The Galaxy S III is... well... it's ugly. There's really no other way to put it. But why? Why is it ugly? I don't mean aesthetically, why is it ugly, I mean, "How did something like this ever make it out of Samsung's design studio?" I'll tell you how, it was never in the design studio. This phone design was born down the hall, in a room where the door sign reads "Samsung Legal."

It was designed by lawyers.

I can tell just from the press shots, this thing is a Samsung lawyer's dream. I'm sure you must be thinking,"Hmm, that's a weird assumption to make." but don't worry, an explanation is forthcoming.

Samsung Galaxy S III First Hands-On

After months of rumors and teasers, we finally got the chance to see the Samsung Galaxy S III first hand last night, at the company's Unpacked 2012 event in Earl's Court, London. Following many (many) free drinks and canapés, Suzi Perry - who hosted the popular Gadget Show here in the UK - took to the stage to kick off proceedings and introduce JK Shin, President of Samsung's mobile division, who officially introduced the new Galaxy to us.

By now, I'm sure you're all familiar with the specs of Samsung's new iPhone crusher, but just in case you need a little refresher, here's what you can expect when it ships to Europe in May…

Hardware

First impressions were mixed when we first saw the Galaxy S III; the phone is modeled off the shape of a pebble (nature was a big theme at the event last night, with Samsung donating $100 to the WWF for everyone in attendance), with rounded corners and just two capacitive buttons at either side of the physical home button.

Yep, It's Pretty Likely The Galaxy S III Won't Have A Quad-Core Processor In The US

If you've been following the Galaxy S III news today, you know it has a banging new Exynos 4 quad-core processor that absolutely obliterates benchmarks. The problem is that the Exynos 4 platform is quite old at this point (for a mobile chipset), and was never designed to support LTE. That's why devices like the Galaxy S II Skyrocket don't use an Exynos chip. Devices with Exynos 4 chips that do, like the Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE, use an external one - adding thickness and increasing power consumption.

While Samsung has hinted at times that the Exynos 4412 chip could, in theory, support LTE with an external (read: adding thickness, weight, decreasing battery life) modem, nothing concrete has come of those rumblings.

Polls: Did The Galaxy S III Meet Your Expectations, And What Do You Think Of The Looks?

It's finally here. You've seen it, gawked at it, drooled over it, and quite possibly done unspeakable things in your desire to have it. So, what do you think of the Galaxy S III - as good as promised, or "meh"-fest?

If you need some numbers to decide your vote, here are a few specifications to look over:

  • 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED HD Display
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16/32GB storage, 64GB version "available soon"
  • microSD Card slot
  • Eye Tracking
  • Smart stay: keeps the screen awake while you're looking at the display
  • S-Voice: advanced voice recognition, "like a good friend who listens attentively" -- definitely a strong competitor to Siri
  • Floating videos: lets you resize videos and move them around on the display whilst they float atop other windows.

[Video] Samsung Shows Off The Galaxy S III's "Inspired By Nature" Display And Design

Well, it's official, folks: the Galaxy S III has officially been unveiled, the specs are out (mostly), and pics are available. Naturally, Samsung is proud of its new flagship, especially in the area of design. To show off its "inspired by nature" design, Sammy put together a nice video highlighting a few aspects of the GSIII:

If you're not into videos that actually show new features of device, there's also a new commercial that shows how the GSIII is "design for human beings." Because, you know, all other devices were designed for pigs, dolphins, dragons, and the like.

What do you think?
