Now we wait to see if the carriers and Samsung have figured it out to have a WORLDWIDE launch in April as opposed to everywhere but USA in April and USA in freaking October.

That and the US versions will be horribly dumbed down and full of bloatware

It looks good.
Hope it won't have the reception/connection issues like the Galaxy Nexus does.

Also hope the battery can last all day long and be removable.

What reception/connection issues??? You must be confusing the Gnex with the iPhone 4.

Sammy boy, I just got my Note barely two months ago, and you think you have what it takes to lure me into buying this!?

Dammit it, with a 1080p quad (and fingers crossed - smaller bezel), you'd have me... again!

If only it would keep those specs when it comes to U.S carriers..

ceramic is very strong. they make armor out of the stuff. :) It will definitely be interesting compared to the plastics n tins of the phone world.

even armor has chinks.
the strength of a material is dependent on the type of load particularly the angle of incidence.
what are the compressive, tensile, torsional and shear strength values?
why is ceramic normally considered brittle?
what happens to a ceramic-backed phone when it is impacted along its edge?

Probably just sprayed onto high quality plastic or aluminium. It's not gonna be ceramic per se.

All those features are nice and all, but if it won't get me through a whole day's worth of usage, forget it

I just wish that the phone will keep the shutter key that is on the above render.

Hope Verizon gets their head out of their ass and offer the S3.

I certainly hope so! If they skip the GS3 for "something better", I think I might have to jump ship. And if they get it, they better not dumb it down like they did the Fascinate!

Im with you there man. Not all of these Droid branded phones are what they are cut out to be. AT&T already got the htc one x exclusively... What a disappointment it would be if they got this too.

Did not. They got.the "XL" which is the crap dragon version
Supposedly T-Mobile is getting the international quad core version as well as the 1s.

Hope AT&T does't decide to dumb this one down like the One X.

This will kill most Quad core phones out there. I just cant wait for it.
