At its Unpacked event tonight in London, Samsung unveiled its new flagship, Android 4.0 Galaxy S III smart phone boasting 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor aided by a fresh GPU that is supposedly 65 percent faster than the companion Mali 400 graphics chip on the Galaxy S II, 1 GB RAM, 8-megapixel & 1.9-megapixel cameras, removable 2,100mAh battery, cocooned in Gorilla Glass 2, 8.6mm thick and weighing at 4.7 ounces(133g). The phone will come with 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of internal storage that can be increased by up to 32GB via its microSD slot.

There's plenty to admire in this phone. A . Using a proximity sensor, the phone senses that you want to call the person you're texting when you hold the phone to your ear. The Galaxy S III's S Beam uses NFC technology to exchange phone content, such as videos, between similarly equipped phones when you bump them together. And Samsung's DLNA-powered All Share feature now enables the Galaxy S III to stream content to and from multiple phones, HDTVs, computers, and other compatible HDLNA devices—not just one. The Galaxy S III's 8-megapixel rear-facing camera's burst-shot feature lets you take a volley of 20 pictures and automatically picks the best one. It also allows you to snap still pictures while shooting HD videos at 1080p. The front-facing 1.9 megapixel camera can shoot video at 720p.

  • Just noticed the mess-up and re-submitted, Thanks!

  • Whatever else Samsung does, unlike Motorola, Apple and others they realise that people want a removable battery. Motorola had to modify the Razr with a battery twice the size; the Samsung is usable as a business phone. I'm still probably going to wait for BB 10, but this does look like the most practical Android phone yet.
