Samsung announced its launch right on schedule for its new Galaxy S III phone. The launch action is going on in 28 countries.

Weighing in at 133g and 8.6mm at its thickest, the rounded-off design has more than a little bit in common with its Galaxy Nexus cousin. Samsung's new 1.4GHz Exynos 4 Quad processor will be doing the heavy lifting, and there's 1GB of RAM to help it out. The display has been bumped up in size to a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED affair, sporting a 1280 x 720 pixel count. There's an 8-megapixel rear shooter to play with, and a 1.9-megapixel eye on the front will take care of those video calls.
