The Samsung Galaxy S3 (S III) reveal is taking place right now as we speak and we’re bringing you all the information as we hear it. So far initial impressions are good and now we want to bring you details of the Galaxy S3 full specs and a photo gallery so you can get a good look at this new smartphone that so many have been waiting for.
We’ve already given you details on a hands-on look, news on LTE for the US and a video about the software but we know that many readers will be waiting for the full specifications and features. First off we’ll give you the news that many had hoped for regarding the processor of the Galaxy S3 and yes…at least one variant will feature an Exynos quad-core processor. The HD Super AMOLED Plus display did not appear though but it does have a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display that looks pretty good, with resolution of 1280 x 720.
There’s also an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, flash, zero shutter lag and 1080p HD video capture along with a 1.9-megapixel front-facing shooter, 16/32GB of internal storage (expandable to 64GB via microSD), NFC support, a 2100mAh battery and the physical home button still appears although in a smaller form. It runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (to be fair it really had to or there would have been major disappointment) and there’s also a/b/g/n WiFi, WiFi HT40 and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
Dimensions are 136.6mm x 70.6mm x 8.6mm and it weighs in at 133 grams. The Galaxy S3 also features all the usual Google services such as Search, Maps, Gmail, Latitude, Play Store, YouTube and much more and additional features include Direct Call, Smart Alert, S Voice voice integration, Tap to top and Camera quick access. You can see even more details at Droid-Life along with the official Samsung press release.
It will be available in Pebble Blue or Marble White and a release will come to Europe in late May although those of you in the US (where it will feature 4G LTE connectivity) will have to wait for a release later in the summer. After the long wait and build-up for the Galaxy S3 we’d love to hear your initial impressions on this flagship device. Does the Galaxy S3 offer everything you’d hoped for? Are there any aspects about the Galaxy S3 that disappoint you? Let us know with your comments.
