The next Galaxy S has been announced! Unsurprisingly, the flagship phone will be called the Samsung Galaxy S III in keeping with the traditional brand names of its predecessors.
The rumors on the Android smartphone was generally accurate as the official announcement reveals that it will offer a 1.4GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM, a 4.7-inch HD display, 4G LTE, and an 8-megapixel camera. The Galaxy S III will ship with the Android 4.0 ICS OS combined with a new version of the Samsung TouchWiz UI.
A new cheap Android cell phone will join the T-Mobile line-up later this month. This press photo and FCC filing of this phone has already leaked several weeks ago so the existence of the device is not a mystery. However, the official announcement provides all of the details that were not mentioned on the leak.
More Galaxy S III leaks have surfaced as we inch closer to the May 3 introduction event. This time it appears that Samsung intends to launch the anticipated smartphone in two color versions. The screen protector and the boot screen of the next Galaxy S were also leaked giving us interesting bits of information.
The release date for Sprint's version of the HTC One X has been confirmed. Past rumors indicate that My 18 is the scheduled release for Sprint's Evo 4G LTE and a new leak has corroborated this launch date.

Samsung recently reached the top spot as the world's larget cell phone manufacturer by selling more than 93 million cell phones during the first quarter of 2012. The manufacturer is also expected to unveil the Galaxy S III next month, which would no doubt help it to remain on top of the mobile phone industry. This heavily anticipated phone is shrouded in mystery but leaks have sustained the hunger of consumers for this device.
This time a new image of a phone that is being alleged as the Samsung Galaxy S 3 has been sent to a number of tech sites.
Here's a bit of change on mobile phone history. Nokia has fallen from its throne as the top cell phone manufacturer in the world. Data compiled by both IHS iSuppli and Strategy Analytics, show that Samsung is now the top mobile phone maker in the planet.
It's not an insignificant achievement as Nokia was the world’s largest handset vendor for 14 years, a time period that spans from 1998 to 2011.
The market for smartphones in the US is very competitive so one expects the largest carrier to offer an impressive line-up of phones every year. Verizon Wireless started 2012 well with the DROID 4, DROID RAZR MAXX, and the Spectrum but more impressive handsets are on the way.
The folks at BGR have acquired the details of the upcoming smartphones that the carrier may release in the remainder of 2012. Check out the information after the break.
