Samsung Galaxy SIII London Event – Live [Ended]

Here we go, folks! Samsung will be on stage in London in just a few minutes to unveil the “next Galaxy.” Will it be the Galaxy SIII? How big will the screen be? Which processor will we see in the U.S.? When will it arrive? All questions we should have an answer to shortly.  

  • next?

    “Honey, anything good for dinner?”

  • RoadsterHD1

    Where are the spec’s? They did not mention official specs in the US. Or did i miss it?

  • KG

    Samsung, please don’t F this up and give in to the US carriers by changing the hardware. Pains me to say this, but one of the reasons Iphone is successful is that they have one model for the entire globe, which makes it very easy to build the brand recognition and allow users to get great accessories. So grow some balls, and stand-up to the carriers like crapple did and if they want to carry the S3, they have to play by your rules!

  • Engadget is saying June for US release… Doubt that means Verizon, but hey, what can you do?

    • FortitudineVincimus

      Yeah, they clearly said “summer” in the presentation so June – September in USA would be expectation.

  • BrianWenger

    But wait there’s more…….
    Anticipation ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!
    Tablet please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh it’s a store. Must be an epic ass store.

  • May 29th in Europe, who the hell knows for the US. Following in the footsteps of the GSII, too late to matter.

  • “designed for humans..”—– geh

  • Samvelavich

    LTE for At&t or Verizon??

  • +1 for the audio/video codecs!

  • NeilOMalley

    I’m not a big fan of this “nature” phone.

  • uiz

    im sorry, I thought it was for aliens!

  • yes… mono drone… must sleep… They need to hire some actors.

  • The accents don’t bother me as much as the overdramatic pompous feel. This is worse then an Apple unveiling and I didn’t think that was possible.

    • Afrayedknot

      It’s more cheesy than pompous, if you ask me.

  • MrEnglish

    Well, sorry folks, I can’t bear to watch any more. Rather wait for Kellex’s specs as the feed is just too painful to my poor little ears.

  • achaf86

    I want this phone, I’m hoping it comes to verizon!!

  • Shanjay Jha

    these accents kill me…
    Let me troll here…
    Stolen MotoCast, stolen RAZR MAXX battery, stolen water, wind resistant part…

  • JB

    Hardware buttons – check! SD slot – check! USB host – check! USB mountable – ICS :(.
    Why is Google trying to imitate Apple’s ideas? No SD cards, no USB host, MTP and Job’s dream of a buttonless phone… I hate them all.

  • Just waiting for some S Cloud info…

  • SheckyOtoole

    Instead of naming the voice assistant “S Voice”, they should have called it “Surly” and given it a gruff guys voice.

    User: “Hi Surly, what is the weather in London?”
    Surly: “How the hell do I know? Do I look like the weatherman? And quit talking to your phone, you look like a tool!”

    • Cam

      R. Lee Ermey should do the voiceover.

      • amazing , Are you tired of not knowing what your employees, children,
        spouse are up to? This Application might be the best solution .easy to
        use and 100% UNDETECTABLE with so many features (Call Tracking,GPS
        Location Tracking,SMS Tracking….) and other amazing features.

        It worked perfect with me , For More Info => => PerfectSpy

    • Steve Waugh

      as Judy responded I cant believe that someone able to profit $6308 in a few weeks on the internet. did you see this web page ===>> http://starjob.blogspot.in/

    • what Esther said I am blown away that a student can profit $5524 in 1 month on the computer. did you see this page LâzýÇãsh5.Çom

  • haymaker81

    So underwhelming. Samsung fail.

  • c4v3man

    The voice additions seems pretty minimal over Google’s voice actions, made available before Siri. Why would I want to tell my phone I want to take a picture? I’d rather have a dedicated camera button…

  • Cam

    Fixed capacitive buttons are so 2011.

  • Can we make dirty jokes to Sammy Siri?

  • CaptainHowdy13

    I smell a new apple samsung lawsuit!

  • mustbepbs

    Sooo..that’s it? Way to overhype the hell out of that thing, Samsung. NEXT!

  • blackguy

    So when will we find out if this phone will be on verizon?…

  • They want this phone to be like your best friend…the day a phone starts replacing my friends I’m finding the nearest bridge

  • Targetyou

    Engadget already has a full hands-on and comparison articles. Pretty underwhelming, IMO. No word on a specific LTE US release. I’m definitely thinking Razr HD if the CPU’s stay the same.

  • nb

    sounds like major software additions

  • Ok, watching me while I’m watching is creepy and awesome at the same time.

  • CaptainHowdy13

    They may have one upped the HTC One series in looks. That thing is sexy

  • Cam

    Great phone. Now unveil the US pogo car dock for the Galaxy Nexus.

  • RadicalPie

    Razr HD if it has the same processor ..

  • RadicalPie

    Hardware buttons. boo.. messed up release booo.

    • JB

      Software buttons are great, it’s not like I was going to use that bit of screen anyways. Full screen movies and games are for losers. And it’s not like the battery is powering that row of button’s LCD. Why is Google trying to imitate Apple? No SD cards, no USB host, MTP and Job’s dream of a buttonless phone… I hate them all.

  • touchwiz—smh

    • joder

      Still not a buttonless front… smh.

      • “beam…introduced on the galaxy nexus last year”–made our phones seem out of date!

  • c4v3man

    2100mah battery, launching may, but not in the US. Us gets a “summer” release date… wtf? Why can’t samsung get a device launch done right, even when delayed. Apple doesn’t seem to launch devices with an ambiguous date, they say “available xx/xx/xx”. Ridiculous.

  • Ugh, why am I watching this? It’ll never come to Verizon

  • MrEnglish

    Por G bersion coming to nos america in summer!!! Yay

    • BillJ

      LOL. That’s how my Gnex would have typed it.

  • hooked82

    Drop the hardware buttons!!

    • nb

      WTFFF are those doing there!

  • Ray

    Underwelming to say the least

    • RadicalPie

      A little bit. Software stuff for sure is cool but physical buttons are lame. Just kinda meh.

    • FortitudineVincimus

      Though it will surely be my next phone.. I have to agree. I watched the entire broadcast and this phone does NOT “redefine smart phones” in any way whatsoever. Not in size, in battery, in camera, in chip (since it will be dual in USA), in speed, in design aesthetics, etc. Yeah, it has some “neat” software features, but those don’t sell me a phone. 

      I’ll take it, but I am not as impressed as I had really hoped to be.

      • zane

        Shoulda gone with the nexus… Darn.

  • AroundTheFur

    I’m completely underwhelmed by this.

  • nb

    aahhh what’s he saying!!!

    something about a 4.8inch screen?

  • That guy so excited he needed to bring his oxygen tank?

  • I’ve never watched one of these….but everyone seems to be making pretty ballsy statements on stage…is that common or a little bit of Sammy Showmanship?

  • MrEnglish

    The little chinese guys that own these companies are so fun to watch. HTC probably the funniest, but Samsung right up there. So much fun, whether or not the devices are any good.!

  • LindaKelly

    That Suzi Perry looks like she set her makeup gun to whore.

    • Which is still a setting or 7 less than Jersey Shore

  • “It is designed for humans”….appreciate that lol

    • “I want it to be like the second coming of Jesus”


  • hinder

    i wonder how many isheeps are inside there…

  • The blobs on the screen remind me of the kin phone….anybody get suckered into one of those bad boys?

  • hinder

    yesss made it on time ran to the store to buy some popcorn and a beer 🙂 this is going to be fun.

  • MrEnglish

    As hyped up as this intro is, it better be good. Open mind yes, high expectations, not so much. Still, it would be good to see something completely new and awesome.

  • Nemesis099

    I’m hoping this is the phone to replace my Droid X as I can upgrade as of today!!!!

  • Art Holguin
    • RoadsterHD1


  • RoadsterHD1

    where is the live feed?

  • EvanTheGamer


  • Dan McSweeney

    It will certainly be disappointing if it doesn’t have a card slot.

  • kimjongdun

    wish they can make exynos compatible with lte-fdd!!!

  • my hands are shaking! My hear is pumping. Madre de dios!

    • Jaime Ramirez

      ur hear? me heart lol excited love my gnex will see

  • tomgillotti


  • Droidzilla

    With all of the hype, I’m expecting the casing to be made of bacon. No bacon no sale, Samsung!

    • JSK

      Bacon and narwhals please

      • Droidzilla

        Bacon wrapped Narwhal is delicious.

    • JustTrollin69

      The Galaxy Bacon.

      • Droidzilla

        I would so buy that. If they had a commercial featuring Kevin Bacon, it would be a market dominator.

        • JustTrollin69

          Yea, and sponsored by Denny’s

  • JustTrollin69

    So pumped! I still love my Gnex, and whether or not I decide to go for the SIII, I’m a die hard Android user/lover and love to see these exciting events.

    • EvanTheGamer

      AMEN to that dude!

      I’m not up for an upgrade until sometime next year, so I still have a ways to go before I can get the next best phone. But luckily enough for always evolving technology, I’ll always be able to upgrade to the next best thing, whether it be the SIII or the one after that.

      Technology FTW!
