, and

Dutch website Tweakers has received an invite to a Samsung event on May 3rd. There’s nothing explicitly mentioning the Galaxy S III, but given that the invite says “come and meet the next Galaxy” it surely must be referring to it. A May 3rd announcement would give Samsung enough time to roll out the device for a May 22nd launch — a date that has been hanging around for over a month. The event is taking place in London, and we’ve received no word from Samsung AU yet as to whether or not there will be an Aussie launch event as well.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is expected to have a 4.7-inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED Plus HD display, a Quad-Core Exynos CPU running Android 4.0 with Samsung’s TouchWiz skin. The Galaxy S III will be up against fierce competition in the HTC One X, which is by far the best Android phone I’ve used.

There has been no confirmation as to what the Galaxy S III will look like, but the above render is the closest thing we’ve had to what seems like the real deal.

I upgraded via “Software Update” in the android settings menu. Still waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 update to come through.

I like my Galaxy S a lot (except for TouchWiz and Samsung “enhancements” looking and feeling like crap, but Go Launcher EX went a long way toward fixing that), but I have to say that this is my expectation right now: “Galaxy S III is marginally better hardware and software-wise compated to HTC One X. SIII also feels like an overly light and plastic piece of crap compared to the work on the body of the HTC One X.” As far as my next phone goes, I’d lean toward the HTC, in all honesty (assuming same price point). HTC seem to… Read more »

Let’s just hope to god this is in fact the SGS3 because Galaxy could mean anything… but, i don’t think Samsung would set us up this badly for a letdown because people will rage if they go, “LOLJKS 22nd May”

When the GNex was coming up for release…
I BEGGED Samsung to take my money, but since they took too long they didn’t get it.

I suspect they’ll get it this time.
