Engadget - Okay, okay, it's here -- but when can you actually get your hands on Samsung's Galaxy S III? Well, if you're in Europe, you're looking at a May release for the HSPA+ version. Those of us in North America, Japan and Korea will have to wait a bit longer for speed -- the 4G version of the handset will be hitting those areas in the summer.

That's a decent upgrade from the Galaxy S II, but i really don't like those round corners of the Phone.

Guess it time to upgrade.

if it come to Verizon i shall be upgrading day 1 from my old droid X

I have to disagree with you, it's not worth it to upgrade if you have the GSII, but for the people still rocking the GSI it's worth it.

I'm still rocking the good ol' Blackberry 8520 so the difference is huge and I'm really considering to buy it but the PenTile display is a big letdown.

I guess i'll have to hold it in person to decide. :)

chriski3331880d ago

I have the old smelly droid x so it will be worth the upgrade

Cryptcuzz1880d ago

I believe it is better to have the corners round. That way, it would be easier when putting it into your pocket as well as taking it out from your pocket.

Then again, it could be personal preference as well. I personally liked the fact that it is round like the Galaxy Nexus I have now.

I honestly expected more.

I expected more as well....

I think it's a good enough upgrade, way better than what Apple does with their Phone & iPad each year.

Overall impressive but same Mali 400mp GPU ???, that's not fair!, it should have been something stronger !

Also the current S2 users might think twice before buying it, making it less popular, (GPU is a let down!)

1.4ghz quad core
wtf you troll
no one gonna think twice,except maybe only igay i mean iphone its sexy, shoot i know ill be upgrading lol.

Speed-Racer1880d ago

The US version most likely will be dual core. Not sure why.

Elvis1880d ago


It's because LTE, the quad-core Exynos doesn't support LTE.

Speed-Racer1880d ago

Thank you Derek =) I assumed that was the case but didn't want to say outright till I was sure.

Cryptcuzz1880d ago

Even with a dual-core version, it would be quite comparable since it probably would be based off the A15 processor, instead of the A9 of the 1.4 GHz quad-core in it now.

Not sure if it is true, but based off of the HTC One X, Samsung must make it at least that good.

All these constant upgrades are getting hard to keep up with tbh..

If I bough a GSII would I be really outdated? Or should I just wait for this?

Wintersun6161880d ago

SGS2 is just fine and nothing to be ashamed of. I'll be skipping SGS3 because my contract lasts until 2014.

SJIND1880d ago

Well can upgrade from S2 but S3 but its big wont fit in pocket...
