Now what's happening on Thursday, Samsung?
As if any smartphone fanatic worth his/her salt could forget, Samsung will be making an introduction on Thursday of "The Next Galaxy". Of course, we take that to mean that the long awaited Samsung Galaxy S III will be introduced. If so, all of those questions that you were wondering about like the size and resolution of the screen will be answered. Will the international version feature a quad-core Exynos processor while the U.S. model gets the dual-core Qualcomm S4? There is enough mystery and intrigue to make a James Bond fan excited.

Samsung's "The Next Galaxy" web site put up a reminder on Wednesday just in case you had something else on your mind. Wednesday morning, we reminded you that PhoneArena will be there to keep you up-to-date about one of the most important product announcements of the year which could wipe the BlackBerry 10 OS introduction right off the front page.

The festivities start at 2pm Eastern time in the states and we figured with time running down, this will be your last shot at telling us exactly what you think the specs will be for the sequel to what many consider the best Android handset ever made. Simply leave your expectations in the comment box below!

Why would they downgrade the front facing camera?

1.3 mp front might mean better sensor. MP doesn't matter as much as sensor does

Hopefully it'll be better at holding a signal otherwise it's pretty useless.

my excitement has waned. if the US version gets dual core snapdragon as well as other minute, non existant spec bumps and thats it, this will be very disapointing. hopefully they have some new software or some other trick up their sleeve.

I hope you're right, if not then maybe 1.5GB? That's what I've heard more recently

4.8 720p super amoled + (1080p is useless unless the screen is 5"+) 1.5GB to 4GB RAM LPDDR3, that's easily possible and newer exynos and ICS already have support for that. Exynos 4412 1.5ghz quad core. New ISP will come along 4412 which is again going to be very good. 12Mp/2MP cameras with BSI sensor (dedicated camera button and xenon flash will also be welcomed) ICS 4.0.4 with touch wiz 5.0 Mali 400MP4 400+ghz 2500 mAH removable battery 16 gb internal + removable microsd CLASS 10 4g lte Glass Ceramic or amorphous metal alloy(metal glass) body. Size same as SGII

All I ask is that Verizon will be one of the carriers of the phone and that the display is going to be 4.5" or bigger. If it's a 5" or higher(which I doubt), I will camp out to get this phone! Lets just hope and pray that if your a VZW subscriber, that Verizon doesn't f**k this up.
