The Next Galaxy, i.e. the Samsung Galaxy S III is finally into the scene. Thousands, literally thousands of false news kept the readers busy on just dreaming about what would be possible specifications of the Galaxy S III, but the truth has come out. The Galaxy S III rocks, its truly superb and keeps everything else at bay today. And no, its not the #NextGalaxy but the Galaxy S III would be the official name of the phone.

Check how Samsung Transformed to the best every year, from the Samsung Galaxy S in 2010 to the S III this year.

Samsung Galaxy S III

Here are a few features that we have found out, as the event goes on live right now:

  • 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED Display
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 1.9MP front camera with “face recognition”
  • 2100mAh Battery
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS

S Voice for the Samsung Galaxy S III is what the Siri app for the iPhone 4S is. It recognizes your voice, listens to your command and acts the way you want it to.

Here are some of the best features of the Galaxy S III:

Smart Stay – The front camera of the phone recognizes whether you are actively looking at the phone screen and using it, and until that the screen is turned on. If the camera doesn’t detect your viewing, the screen would turn off automatically.

Direct call – This feature is helpful when you are trying to text message someone but in the end decide not to do that and call the same person. For making the call, you just need to lift the phone towards your face or ear and the call would be dialed automatically.

S Voice – We talked with a bit of over excitement here about this feature, and compared it with the Siri for iPhone but actually it isn’t. It listens to your commands, but a very few ones. Searching using the Google search, turning the camera on, calling someone, checking the weather etc. is what all is done listening to your commands.

S Beam – The Near Field Communication transfer is taken to the next level from the standard ICS based NFC that came earlier. The tapping and phone-to-phone transfer is possible in a faster and better way.

Burst Shot (Best Photo) – 20 captures in a super-fast mode, and all are displayed at once and out of them you may select the best shot and all the other are deleted. This is nothing new, as the HTC One X Camera already had a better way, capturing 99 pictures in the same burst mode.

Wireless charging is what we have heard of, but aren’t sure how it works until we directly test it out.

May 29th is the date when the Samsung Galaxy S III would be actually available in the market in the West, and in the Eastern nations like India, the market would get it for sale in June.

We are still updating.

After the break: The previous news, rumors and talk about the Galaxy S III. Whatever has just been released, is updated above.

How many of you have already bought a Samsung Galaxy S I9000 mobile phone and are confused on should to upgrade to S2 or wait for something better? Here is a good news for all of you because Samsung’s mobile division president has hinted that the Galaxy S3 is soon going to be launched with some awesome configuration. In an age where Samsung has ruled the Android Market with its “Galaxy” Series signature after the hit and hot selling success of Galaxy S as well as Galaxy S2 phone, time has now come to speculate about the Samsung Galaxy S3 handset which is already in the making for making itself available in the year 2012.

First of all Samsung is trying to beat all the Apple Records in terms of sales and the Galaxy S2 has helped them in doing the best by bringing Samsung into Number #2 top mobiles selling company. If you are already having a pretty good mobile which you are not yet planning to sell away or upgrade then its suggested to wait for around a years time for the Galaxy S3 or the Galaxy 3D models. While the lawyers of both Samsung and Apple are busy in fighting it out for the supremacy in the technology space, the Engineering units of both are busy in creating an unforgettable and powerful smart phone with iPhone5 and Samsung Galaxy S3.

We have very less details on this handset as of now but Apple would of course get the first preview because of the ongoing legal battle between both the companies and we should expect some actual snaps of the phone by this year end. It is being speculated that the model number for the Samsung Galaxy s3 will be GT I9300.

Going with the specifications its expected to obviously be an upgrade of the Galaxy S2 with the Camera being 12Mp, quad-core processor, a super-bright AMOLED 3D screen with NFC, 4G Supported device etc. to name a few.  Especially when the HTC One X, Ascend P1 D and Meizu Mx Quad Core phones are out, it will be have to be atleast 1.5 Ghz quad core processor Samsung Exynos CPU. Also its expected that this would be the first phone which would feature the Ice Cream Sandwich. Also the screen size should be around 4.5″ which beats the LG Optimus 3D and also offer you with 4G connectivity support. Lets wait and watch how all this goes and when the phone would be actually be available to you and then you can decide if its worth upgrading your current phone or not. It is also said that this phone will be launched in the first half of FY’12. So, just in case if you have not purchased the last phone from the Samsung which is the Samsung Galaxy S2 then its probably just time to wait as you can buy an all new and probably the World’s best would be smart phone, the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Undoubtedly, Samsung is betting very big on this handset as its in no mood to disclose things about this Samsung Galaxy S3 anything Officially. This smart phone is going to be the World’s slimmest smart phone ever which was disclosed by our close source from Samsung. Another most important feature which is speculated is that it will be having the lowest SAR value which is basically the radiation emitted by the phone. With rising health concerns around the Globe and people’s preference on talking on the phone more than meeting personally, its very important ensure that you have a smart phone which has the lowest SAR Level. With higher SAR levels, the phone tends to get heated up which can in turn damage the brain. Considering the fact that by 2012, the 4G will turn into reality and almost maximum countries will be witnessing the 4G, this support also looks possible. So, in all if you have a look at some of the core features or say USPs then these will be 12MP camera with probably CMOS Sensor with it.

The below picture was recently popped up on the web claiming that the Samsung Galaxy S III would be launched world wide in May 2012. Hope these rumors are true and we really get a chance to see this device.
