It should have been out by now, or at least had an official launch date. if the delay was not real, Qualcom and HTC would be doing their damndest to get out months before Samsungs Quad core and Dual core Exynos updates. Both of which obliterate the S4 like its not there. The S4 just ever so slightly surpases the exynos in benches.
Once Samsung announces the SGS3, its over. Period. End of game. The Galaxy series is Android's "iphone". It is the hype and sales leader of android.

Let’s not knock the 28nm Qualcomm S4 Krait until it's released. Remember because of the 28nm technology the battery life will be greatly improved. Samsung's latest processors will only be 32nm so at the very minimum Qualcomm has Samsung beat in that department.

This fall the 28nm quad-core S4 Krait with Adreno 320 will be released. That is going to be a very punchy quad-core. Not to mention this summer the 28nm dual-core S4 Krait Pro with Adreno 320 will be released. You know these are very boss processors.

The days of the crapdragon are done. You know that remixfa! Qualcomm is bringing the heat!

your comparing apples and oranges SAE.
The S4 is a def improvement over the S3 for sure. The S4 in real life testing is only a sliver better than the exynos in benchmarks. Theyve done actual benchmarks of the S4 inside the HTC OneS as well as the T3 in the OneX. When its not on a reference board and in a real life with real life bloatware, it does not perform much better at all. Battery life is supposed to be a 40-50% improvement over the S3, not the exynos. The exynos already had a huge battery advantage over the S3 to begin with. So we will see soon how that stacks up.

Qualcom does not use ARM designs so there is not as direct of a correlation between S4 and Exynos as there would be between say an OMAP and exynos, since they are sister chips. Thus, the S4 having a smaller die size than the exynos does not automatically make it a dramatic improvement over the exynos, just over the previous S3 chip.

T-Mobile might get the One X with stock ICS. It might release with them as the next phone for the G-series, and they always have stock Android on that series. And it'll have the quad-core since it's not LTE

I don't believe this. As you all know someone spits some crazy rumor and its never true. Whenever you hear final words from Samsung themselves then I can say it will be safe to believe it.

This phone needs to hurry up and get RELEASED!

Agreed.

It seems the contemporary market holds the multimedia experience at a higher priority than portability. I tend to disagree. And I think once you pass 4.5 inches, you missed the "sweet spot" mark. It likely won't be much of an issue for women because they carry purses. But, for men, a 4.8" screen just doesn't sound front-pocket friendly. Regardless of how great a phone it may be, size alone will be a big turn off to many.

The phone will be the same size, the screen will just be bigger. Do us all a big favor and pull your phone out of your @$% and look at it. See all that space that's not a screen? Now that will be screen. So now that you don't have anything to whine about what will you say next?

The Galaxy S II has a height of 4.93". So, by your logic, since "the phone will be the same size" and the S III has a 4.8" screen, you seem to think the Galaxy S III will somehow only have a 0.13" bezel.

Yeah, OK.

When the dimensions are released, then you can talk. Until then, why don't you do us all a favor and pull your phone out of your @&% and put it in your mouth where it belongs.

Scratch that. If the display is 4.8", then the height of the screen, assuming it's a 16:9 HD display, would be roughly 4.46". Which would leave about 0.47" of vertical space for a bezel.

Which I still highly doubt considering the size of the bezel on the S II.

And there has yet to leak an image of the S III that's not a fanmade concept rendering, so there's really no good way of saying how big the bezel will be. I'm quite confident, the S III will be noticeably bigger than the S II, but, until the dimensions leak, debating them is redundant.

do not worry of buying SGS2, SGS2 is going to be very cheap and a "leap" from SGS2 to SGS3 is not so important........SGS2 is still top of the tops :)
so buy freely SGS2
