Samsung today launched its keenly-anticipated Galaxy S III flagship Android phone. We played around with it at Samsung's remarkably expensive and busy event in London's Earl's Court.
The hardware spec of the Galaxy S III is second to none. Quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos 4 processor (a Cortex A9 design, so essentially the same CPU core as found in the NVIDIA Tegra 3, Texas Instruments' OMAP 4, and Apple's A5, among others) with an integrated ARM Mali GPU, paired with 1 GB RAM, 16, 32, or 64 GB of flash (though at launch only 16 and 32 GB models will be available), and a whopping 4.8" 1280×720 HD Super AMOLED screen. The phone sports a wealth of sensors; 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, front-facing 1.9 MP camera, accelerometer, GPS and GLONASS positioning, compass, gyroscope, and, rather weirdly, a barometer. If 64 GB isn't enough, you can add micro-SD storage, up to 64 GB SDXC.
