Way to bring up apple in an unrelated article.

Whats funny is that you guys get so mad when Apple is mentioned in a android article, yet when they are not you guys still bring them up. This looks like a great phone, no need to bring up anyone else. BTW, your played out jokes are pretty pathetic.

Maybe battery life, or reception, or a decent camera, or an OS that doesn't crash constantly? Upping the specs does nothing when the Samsungs are cheap plastic POS knock-offs.

the galaxy s2 has great reception (except for the epic) great battery life, excellent camera, and they made it extremely stable. i had a sgs2 til i dropped it and sammy refused to fix it even if i paid for it. best phone i ever had.

What's shocking is that bgr finally scooped something (if true). Chances are, though, that their leaked info is riddled with just unfounded rumors, like most of their content.

Please, PhoneArena, get the REAL scoop from 'Sammy'??!!

OMG This phone looks great!! But I probably will have to go with the HTC ONE X since my upgrade is due soon and don't want to wait until July :/ But I am exciting to see the edge to edge display. However, I am not sure how well this well survive in a drop test. (iPhone doesn't do too well when comes to it) Anyway, this def. beat iPhone's concept iPhone 5 to the punch. If Apple does go with the rumor iPhone 5 design, there will be more law suit for us to read...

The best estimates are mid summer,Samsung is one of the main sponsors of the Olympics and it no doubt will want to advertise and broadcast alot of ads of the new galaxy s3 being 'now available' to the millions or even billions watching the games

no sh!t samsung would want to. im saying it doesnt seem feasible.

the reasoning, "it would be a good move for samsung" does not translate to "samsung is going to make that move"

just because samsung has a great opprotunity to market the s3 doesnt mean they are going to launch the s3.

this article is just more speculation. im going to check the sources out now.

##BGR claims the info is exclusive and gives no source. i am still unconvinced.

I don't think the quad-core Exynos at1.5GHz is impossible for mid-summer, but I'd retain a healthy dose of skepticism about the 1080p screen until it's actually announced.

GS3 Doesn't need a 1080p screen. That'll be like 500ppi or something crazy. Something way beyond what would ever be necessary, and all it will do is bog down the processor having to pump that out unnecessarily.

Dear phonearena autor,
Writing an article of such type is supposed to be impartial, okay? Second, I do not know what MWC have to do with samsung? Your over enthusiasm and biased writings are unexplainable for the common reader. I am not very acquainted with this korean phone company, but I can assume that the software android must be the worst in the industry, since it needs 4 (!!?) cores to run it properly. Look at Apple, and especially look at Nokia. One core and their OSes run much better. I do not understand what the fuss is all about in this case. Another yellow phone with ridiculously uncomfortable display and pathetic battery life.

I am actually waiting for this..
yeah perhaps MWC gadgets will come out on market just before when the Galaxy III is released. but Galaxy itself has its respects and it will just be competing with apple's iphone 5 by june or july.
only if other manufacturers release something better than the specs of SGSIII and later than its release, that sammy phone is really in great danger. (but hopefully, and obviously, samsung is hard to beat.)

Hard to believe true 1080p but we shall see. Maybe it will be my first Samsung.

Don't care about Exynoss as it just bring incompatibilites with apps/games and really did nothing special except quadrant scores courtesy of low-resolution and samusung i/o tricks.

High, a quadcore would use less power, because it uses 28nm technology, so plz STFU!

Damn this sounds great but I bet the screen, if they menage to put 1080p in sub 5" category which i highly doubt will be PenTile and that's a no go for me and OLED screens oversaturate colors so that's another negative in my opinion...but the positives are deep black, thiner screen tech so they can put huge bateries inside aaand i bet SGS III will have a-15 quad core and 2 gig's of ram so it will be quite hard for me to decide what to get on summer...if they put 64+ gigs of internal storage + SD slot that is a wining combo right there

1.5Ghz is not that good as more and more quad core processor will come out with higher clock speed so it will soon be surpassed. Samsung should put in at least 2GHz quad core so that no other cell phoen manufacturere can complete. If other cell phone manufacturer like HTC, LG or even Motorola can put in a at least a 2.0 GHZ quad core with the most advanced GPU in their future cell phone,then it will be an invincible phone.
