Samsung Galaxy S III Official Photos, Specifications – Launch in London

Update: The Samsung Galaxy S III has launched, and what we saw in the leaked pictures was all fake. May be we could find something very soon in the next versions. Check below for the official photos of the Galaxy S III.

One of the best news in the recent times, Samsung has almost confirmed the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III, due at the Mobile World Congress in 2012, the same time when this year the Galaxy S2 was launched. We just saw a new page shared by the official Galaxy S page, sharing some info about the pictures and a few specifications which are subject to change anytime prior to the launch. The best news in this is that the Galaxy S3 might be coming all around at the world at the same time, rather than what it used to happen earlier, going nation by nation and getting slower attention.

The device looks totally excellent, with the 5 touch-sensitive keys on the bottom, which probably could be for Phone, Menu, Apps, Back and Search. Apart from that, the leaked picture also shows the 4G LTE connectivity, and a new flash to the camera, which could be a 10.1-megapixel one.

The Official specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S3 are -

  • 1.4GHz quad-core processor
  • 16 / 32GB Internal storage memory
  • SD Card slot to expand memory to 64 GB
  • 4.8″ Super AMOLED display
  • 8 megapixel camera
  • 1080p video recording at 60fps
  • 2100 mAh battery
  • NFC Chip
  • Ice Cream Sandwich OS – 4.0.4 version

This was the rumors part:

From another website Crazyaboutmobile (link), we found that the specifications that are rumored around could be possibly a little higher than what is shared on the Galaxy SIII’s Facebook wall post. Here are the other list of rumored specifications around -

4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen at 1,280×720-pixel resolution
1.8GHz chip with 2GB RAM
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
12-megapixel camera

We earlier received rumors a month back that the Galaxy S III would be having a 16MP camera and would be running on the Exynos Quad Core ARM Cortex processor, but with all that, would we be calling it a mobile device then?

  16. hello frndz, plz clear my confusion . if we compare upcuming i5 iphone and samsung S3, which wud b better choice?? they say virtual keyboard, screen projector in i5, is it true?? and launching date of two phones in india??

  17. Of all tablets computer, Samsung’s stands apart; but I wonder why one should spend money after this tab when Samsung Galaxy Note includes features of both – mobile and tab? Or the brand may need to consider Samsung mobile price to attract more consumers.

  18. Still not a match to Nokia N8, 12mp camera with FM transmitter as well, just to mention a few.
    Then think about Nokia 808 with 41 mp camera.
    I would Samsung tries harder.

  19. i bought this phone………..yahooooooooooooo itx amazingggggg.

  22. Chris & Sumathi- i have one problem with my mobile. i dont know how to make a call in this mobile. & i dont have manual also. its nokia 3310.
    Thank you…

  23. pla tell me when this lunch in india and what price

  24. I need full Samsung Galaxy S3 Specifications

  25. I have the s1 and recently bought the S2 and have not been disapointed so far.cant wait for S3

  26. @Trojan Horse4 – So what if the display has a lower resolution? It’s still perfect for viewing photos taken on the phone, and there’s transfer to a computer or even viewing the pics over HDMI. By the way, the N8 display has a true 16:9 aspect ratio, whilst the Samsung does not.

    @Sudheer Chowdery and his clone – Play the argument, not the man. I know the Communicators had a larger screen, but I was specifically referring to modern touchscreen mobiles. A Communicator might have a 4″+ display, but it’s very narrow, so it’s still quite sleek. See Ophidian’s response too.

    My point was that where is Samsung going to stop? 10″ mobile phones? It’s starting to border on the ridiculous, holding up an almost A5 page-sized device to your ear to make a phone call. I never said anything about female users. They usually carry it in their handbags. My point was that some phones are no longer mobile. Sure, they might be thin, but they are too wide.

    Two final points – I am not a Nokia fanboy, I just appreciate good design and quality products. I would just as easily buy a Sony-Ericsson or a Motorola RAZR. Secondly, don’t patronise total strangers. You might think doing so is cute and clever, but it’s not.

  27. I WANT THIS PHONE AS EARLY AS SOON…..

  28. if it comes out will i be able to run windows phone 7.5 mango on it. if yes then this is superb phone

  29. @Chris – 4 inch screen is the optimal limit an individual can see when held at the regular distance from eye,anything more than that will not fit in single glance.

    your nokia lumina 900 , Sony Arc S both have 4.3 inch screen and apple plans for 4 inch plus for its iphone 5.
    you say nokia stayed away from crossing the 4 inch size, have you ever considered the size of communicator series? Get your facts .

    If you are comfortable with 3.5 inch screen , so be it. dont expect others to be the same, atleast not the technology stops there.

    I totally agree that Kindle cant be fit comfortably into a Levi 501. So what ? other means of carrying shall be devised. and you advised Yamikotai , that not all wear baggy pants / cargo pants. according to you, females cannot use any of the modern phones , including your nokia, is that true? bcoz they generally do not have pockets on their dresses, even if theyhave , certainly wont fit even a sleek nokia 5310.

    Probably Levis might rethink to increase the size of the pockets on their 501 series? who knows, thats a possibility bcoz most of the popular phone manufacturers have upscaled their flagship screen size. i rememer few brands used to stich pockets in their formal trousers for holding mobiles, besides the regular pockets. i still have one.

    Grow up boy, Its the trend which is forcing the manufacturers to built/ customise their handsets. So their isnt anything to blame samsung or any other manufacturer. but if you are a fanboy for a particular brand (you should be nokia based on the previous posts) then you can go cry kid all over the forums.
    so for now to you all i say is — Lead, follow or get out of the way!

  30. @ Chris – I agree for the 4\ screen size. Given the distance we generally hold the phone while operating, 4 inch is fine.. anything more than that size wont fit into our retina in one instance.. thats general optics.

    Why does your nokia come up with 4.3″ Lumina 900 ,Sony with Arc S and 4″ inch iphone5. If you are happy with 3.5″ screen of your nokia, its fine. you comment about samsung screen size, and forgot the communicator series which nokia introduced year back.. what about its size?

    Yes i again agree that kindle cant be fit properly into a Levi 501. whats the big deal then, other modes of carrying shall be developed. probably Levi might rethink in increasing the size of their pockets in the 501 series to make the mobiles pocketable, bcoz now a days most of the mobiles have increased the screen size. Thats possible, couple years back,few brands stiched pockets to hold mobiles in their formal wear trousers. i still wear one of them.

    Get up boy, learn that things are changing, whether you like it or not.

    I could not undersand why nokia had to put a 5 MP camera for 2\ screen size phone. do you think it would be pleasurable to the eyes ? well not for me at least. although the phone (symbian) has enough processign power + good MP camera to capture nice details, its of no use for the photos that are shot with this phone, until i’ve downloaded on to a computer.
    Now the trend is in one way, So lead, follow or get out of the way.

  31. Isn’t 4.6″ a little too much for a phone? I’m still loving the SGS I ‘s sizes and general layout. The SGS plus is a little too slow to buy nowadays, hope they improve that version also :)

  32. How much will sgs3 and cost without a subscription?

  33. so is the S 3 going to be quad core most probably or just dual??

  34. is the s3 a mobile phone or a tablet?

    • s3 will b a probable mobile phone!

      • I thought a mobile phone was supposed to be, you know, mobile. Samsung’s phones are growing to ridiculous proportions. You can’t even fit that into a shirt pocket.

        • Chris, if I am not wrong you are referring towards the Samsung Galaxy Note and thinking that its huge, but if you actually trying out using it for a day you will actually be addicted to the same. For sure you would find that no other device can replace the mobility on this and generally Samsung Smart Phones are targeted towards the youth and geeks who like to stay connected with others using different mediums like Social Networking Sites, SMS Apps, Skype Video calls and not through normal Voice Calls. Hope you understand this and find why Samsung is trying to launch a variety of devices in the market.

        • I can fit my 6″ Kindle in my trouser pocket. I really don’t understand the issues people are having with 4 to 5″ phones. I mean, sure I can understand ergonomics issues of using a large phone if you have small hands, but still.

        • @Amit – No, I was actually referring to the Galaxy S2. I know how the Note looks, and I would certainly not confuse the two. How sure are you that no other device can replace the S2/3′s mobility? A Nokia N8 is smaller, has HDMI out and USB On-the-go.

          So you’ve already decided that I’m an old technophobe (“targeted towards the youth and geeks”). I’m actually quite the opposite. I use my phone for all of the above functions and it’s a joy to use, even though the screen is 3.5″. You have to ask yourself why Apple, Sony-Ericsson and Nokia have not gone out of their way to push the screen size towards 4″ – it starts getting impractical.

          @Yamikotai – Then you must really be wearing (a) enormous trousers or (b) cargo pants. I’d love to see you try and fit a Kindle into a standard Levi 501 pocket.

          • There is, believe it or not, a huge chunk of the population that doesn’t like to carry phones in pockets, don’t like carrying too many devices – for this growing bunch of demanding customers, the Note and devices like that WORK and work fantastically. I waited a long while for the Note to debut and I love it – it’s my Kindle, tablet, phone and notepad all in one.

        • @Amit – No, I’m definitely thinking of the Galaxy S2. My Nokia N8 does mobility very well, thank you very much. Does the Samsung squeeze great battery life (comparing mAh for mAh), HDMI, 12MP cam with Carl Zeiss optics and xenon flash, FM transmitter and USB On-the-go into a 3.5″ package? You’re probably going to criticise Symbian now, so I’ll save you the trouble – there are Android phones with similar features to the Samsung, with smaller screens.

          You said Samsung’s devices are aimed at the youth and geeks… does that make me an ancient technophobe? I’m 25. I use my phone for all the things you’ve listed above and much more.

          @Yamikotai – I dare you to try and fit a Kindle into a Levi 501′s pocket and sit comfortably. Not everyone wears baggy pants with huge pockets.

          I believe there’s a very good reason why Nokia and Apple have not yet crossed the 4″ threshold with their mobile phone displays.

        • Guess what Chris, your Nokia N8 doesn’t even have a nice HD screen…even my Galaxy SII gives nice result with 8MP than your 12MP…!

        • If I can fit a 5.3 inch Galaxy Note in my shirt pocket, which I can. a 4.6 will fit fine.

    • Its for sure a Mobile Phone considering the screen size which is smaller than the Galaxy Note.

  35. Lets hope Verizon doesn’t frack this up like they usually do. (Galaxy S 2)

  36. this phone is AWESOME DUDE..Simply head turning..
