Samsung has confirmed its Galaxy S III just before the launch event over in London. The device’s specs aren’t as mind-blowing as we expected, but surely don’t disappoint either. There’s a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display on the front — it’s pentile. The cameras sit at 8MP on the rear and 1.9MP on the front. Storage sizes will start at 16GB with a 32GB variant confirmed and 64GB coming later in the future — MicroSD is included as well.
Bluetooth 4, 40MHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, NFC round out forms of wireless communication — not to forget that it of course has 21Mbps HSPA+ with regional variants with LTE. Under the hood is the Exynos 4 Quad CPU that’s expected to be clocked at 1.4GHz, and powered constantly by a large 2,100mAh battery.
The device will launch closer to the end of this month in a majority of countries on most carriers, so we can easily expect it to launch on all carriers here and a 4G version made for Telstra.

Samsung’s new S-Voice allows you to dictate text for email and messaging, it also takes commands for media playback and calender management. You can tell the phone to ‘snooze’ when the alarm is going off, and it will quickly shut up — brilliant. Direct Call allows the phone to call the person you’re currently texting jut by holding the phone up to your ear.
The camera will shoot 3.3 photos per second and up to 20 shots in one burst. The device will then automatically pick the best photo in the group to use as the captured photo. Wireless charging is go using resonance wireless.
