    there is so much hype for this phone....samsung better not screw this up.
    i am expecting ALOT for this phone. at least better resolution(hopefully 720p) i could care less about camera, the battery has to be significantly better and better battery is almost guaranteed because they packed a huge REMOVEABLE battery in the note. i hope for more ram but doesnt matter if it doesnt get it. the processer is most definitely exynos quad core, the screen size should be fine with 4.3 if not larger. but nothing larger than 4.8 and i hope the design gets much better, either on par with apple or even better.

    My 2cents

    Rumor has it that Samsung will do some legendary engineering and pair the ARM Mali t604 with its new cortex a15 quad-core exynos.... They will most likely announce it on the 3rd before olympics and apples Keynote and start shipping in July when it is ready ... If this happens it will kill everything including a6 which is a9..

    About the s3... Was just doing random Searches and read some articles... Then again it's all rumors but if anyone can do it it's Samsung...

    If this thing doesn't ship till July, that means the carriers won't get it till October(They need the time to gimp the crap out of it). Hope everyone is planning on buying the world model. I will. All they have to give it:
    1) A great camera
    2) 32GB or Sd storage.
    3) A very big or a replaceable battery.

    and the usual over powered under utilized specs.

    What are they odds they can't get this right? How about announcing a phone and shipping it 2 weeks later...Any chance? Samsung can do it for Apple...lets see if they can do it for themselves.

    i agree with you on most part. but if the international version doesnt have LTE included, then i do not plan on buying it.

    Who knows maybe samsung has already managed this fine piece of engineering

    Weren't there rumors that Samsung was going to release the SGS3 earlier than usual for the US carriers?

    Yes, Samsung has stated on numerous occasions that they plan to release their next flagship in the U.S. a lot sooner than the previous installment. This will be an attempt to avoid a repeat of the 4 or so month lapse between the global and U.S. launch of the GS II.

    Yeah. That's what's going to be the factor between me getting the SGS3 or the Evo 4G LTE. If it doesn't have that A15 chip inside, it's a no-go for me.

    From what has been said about A15 production, I would almost guarantee that the SGS3 will not have it. All the news has pointed to a maybe Q3, but likely Q4 release for those chips. I would also like to see that kind of power in the new Galaxy but I just don't see it likely, especially given the news that they are wanting to release the US version of the handset earlier than previous releases.

    For me the new phone isn't about specs. Anyone can produce now a high spec phone. All higher specs do is make a slightly better device. Big deal. It must be about style and software integration. That is why the iPhone does so well. This is Samsung's chance to do an Apple. There is so much buzz about the new phone, I just hope it's a piece of art.

    I'm in agreement with you. I think we have seen many manufacturers develop reasonably well-spec'd handsets of late, but the next big thing is to really improve build quality. I think the iPhone looks nice and frankly, a lot of people buy them because of build quality. This would be a great time for Samsung to show us something other than the standard black plastic slab. We'll see.

    In order for Samsung to "Do an Apple" they would have to incude a very stable "Just works' OS out of the box.. That is what makes Apple, APPLE...
    TO me, the HTC One-S and ONe-X are much better phones than anything APPLE has produced or WILL produce... but ICS hampers the handsets. Even the current crop of Google Tablets are better than Apple ones... Why do you think Apple is suing any and everyone they can get their hands on... because they are being threatened...

    I'm coming from a Droid X so I can't be easily disappointed. I just want a fast *** 4G phone with an HD screen and a good camera. I could care less about A9 or A15 whose really gunna notice the difference in everyday use? NO ONE! Whatever specs it has it's going to be the fastest phone out there for a few months at least and that's just how it is.
    People will notice the difference in battery consumption, which will play a huge role in an average person's everyday use of the device. I agree, it may very well be the fastest phone for at least a few months in terms of performance but what will keep it at the top is how long the phone can remain unplugged with normal use without having to resort to battery saving methods or keeping the user in an overly battery conscious mindset.

    The one thing that will kill my interest in this is if it ends up following the trend of massive devices. The One X is sure thin, but I simply cannot get a device that is as long and wide as that. The next thing manufacturers need to work on is getting 4.5"+ displays on their devices without making them abnormally large-smaller bezels will change the game. If the SGS3 is just another 4.7" display phone that is well over 5" in length and approaching 3" in width, I'll have no interest. I find it strange that everyone is all gaga about thin phones but it seems like few people care about the length+width that affect how well your phone fits in your pocket.

    I agree in the sense that phones are getting a little over board...the note is just HUGE. That said the One X is almost the same size as the SII...I have them both sitting on my desk and the width is exactly the same, the height is close with the one x being about a quarter inch longer. Most people love the SII and the One X is on par size wise (these are both Rogers versions)

    I am hoping this SIII does have a 4.7" screen however is the same size as the SII will less bezel

    I hope they somehow improved battery consumption on white pages with their new screen or just made it more battery friendly overall. It would also be nice if it looked better than slcd2. I guess it doesn't matter if they shove a huge battery in and get 8 plus hours of battery life off of web browsing. If it doesn't get at least 7 hours then i'm not sure if id buy this phone. Hopefully samsung doesn't let the razr maxx /iphone beat the sgs3 at battery life

    it will most likely have good battery life, maybe not as good as the maxx because of its higher specs, but it should be good

    if the new GS3 gets the quad core exynos processer, its supposed to have crazy battery optimization. i think we can expect a good battery life, maybe 8-9 hrs of web surfing

    The uglier the prototype, the prettier the final product! At least that's what I tell myself at night so I can sleep after seeing pics like that. I think the physical home button is just there as a decoy so people think it's the s2. Why waste space for that thing if it has virtual ics buttons.

    That would make no sense at all, not in the position samsung is in right now, especially how long it took them to get into this position. All the secrecy, all the hype, it has to live up to it and it will have to stand toe to toe with the next iphone and win. Mediocre makes no sense.

    The i9300 (device in pic) might be a mid range device, but there is also a i9800 that may be the sgs3, that's what I meant
