Watch Samsung's Galaxy S III London Launch Live!

Samsung will soon unveil the next phone in its highly successful line of Galaxy smartphones. Dubbed the Galaxy S III, we've been waiting for this phone ever since Samsung confirmed that it wouldn't be bringing it along to Mobile World Congress. Sammy hasn't told us an awful lot about the phone, other than revealing that it will pack the company's own Exynos CPU (the international version at least), so today's event should be pretty exciting.

The event is just a few minutes away at this point, and the good news is that you can also tune in and watch along live with the rest of us gadget fiends. Samsung's running its own live stream of the event at and

If you don't plan on watching the live stream, be sure to tune back in later for the low-down on the Galaxy S III. So far, the rumored specs for this device include a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, a quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.3-megapixel camera for video calling, 16GB of storage, microSD, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, and support for microUSB. We're hoping these rumors are true.

    I'd hope that the camera is more than just about 'megapixels'. As Nokia shows: It is much more about the lens and lighting than the CMOS...

    Yeah yeah, it's a slightly better phone than last year. Excuse me if I don't go insane with excitement at the prospect of an incremental upgrade.

    Bring on those damn glasses already, both of my hands are needed elsewhere.

    frozonicthe only thing i hope is a decent 15 hours battery.... but i know thats not going to happen
    I've got the s2. I charge it at night, and by the end of my work day some nine hours later, I still have 80% battery left. I don't use it much during the day, and keep 4G, WIFI, and Bluetooth off during the day because I don't need them. I also use it to play audiobooks for hours at a time without battery issues. Even though I use it a lot in the evening, I still have 50% battery by bed time. I never even bother bringing my extra charger with me since I haven't used it for months.

    If you are having battery issues, install Juice Defender, uninstall any music syncing programs, and turn 4G off when you're not using it - these things will help it last so much longer!
