The Samsung Galaxy S III: what we know so far

Tomorrow's the big day, Android fans: we'll finally be able to put months and months of rumor to rest, and begin months and months of arguing over whether the Samsung Galaxy S III or the HTC One X is top dog in the smartphone world. The Galaxy S III is, without exaggeration, the most rumored, leaked, faked and anticipated Android phone yet, so we figured we'd do a roundup of what we're likely to see at Samsung's London even tomorrow.

Nintendo Wii U rumors run wild – talks of Android integration

Whoa! This one will need to be almost instantly tossed into the rumor bin but we wanted to toy with the idea for a minute and imagine the possibilities. The Nintendo Wii isn't something we really talk about here, except for modding the Wii-motes for Android usage. Some new reports are hinting that it could very well have Android OS integration, or be completely based around Android.

Samsung teases Galaxy S III with Facebook photo

The rumor mill has been turned up a notch with Samsung Denmark releasing a Facebook photo in its gallery of what is supposed to be the new Galaxy S III. It shows a simple blue back ground with 12.05.03-20.00 in white lettering and a conspicuous imprint of a phone pressed from behind. Subtle yet tantalizing at the same time.

Rumor: Samsung Galaxy S III is a minor update

Ceramic cases! 2Ghz processors! 1080p screens! These are just a few of the more outlandish rumors we've heard about the mythical hardware in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III. With press invitations sent to a May 3rd event, speculation has hit a fever pitch, but at least one news source advises caution. Cnet quotes an anonymous insider saying that Samsung's update won't be anywhere near as monumental as some rumors indicate - in fact, it'll be positively minor. "It'll be like the iPhone 4S was to the 4," said the insider, bringing up memories of mild dissatisfaction among eager Apple customers.

Samsung Galaxy S III may get multiple launch venues and colors

What, you thought that official invitation to see "The Next Galaxy" would be the end of the speculation? Hardly. BGR quotes an anonymous source (for what it's worth) saying that the Samsung Galaxy S III will be getting multiple launch events in London, New York City, Seoul and Dubai. The source says that the main event will be in London to commemorate the Galaxy S III as the official smartphone of the 2012 Summer Olympics, something we'd heard before. The source also claims that it'll come in a blue/black color scheme as well as white, with 16GB and 64GB models.

Galaxy S III enters testing in Korea, may have non-Pentile screen

Another week, another batch of Samsung Galaxy S III rumors. We know it's coming, because a Samsung representative told AsiaE that the device has entered the testing phase in Samsung's home territory of South Korea. The standard testing regimen apparently takes two months, but Samsung wants it done faster than that - perhaps to get it good and ready for a pre-Olympics rollout. There's also news out of Korean site DDaily that the GSIII uses a 4.65-inch 720p Super AMOLED screen. That sounds identical to the panel found on the Galaxy Nexus, with one important difference: it doesn't use the Pentile pixel layout.

Samsung Galaxy S III rumored to be a mere 7mm thin

Today ends in the letter "y", and you know what that means: more Galaxy S III rumors! The latest scuttlebutt amongst unnamed "industry insiders" points to a 7mm profile on Samsung's flagship device, besting even the Motorola DROID RAZR for skinny dimensions. The rumor comes from ETnews, who also reports that the unnamed sources expect the phone to launch in May, probably as an international model. The only solid news concerning a Galaxy S II successor coming from Samsung is that it won't be showing up at Mobile World Congress, as the company is saving the good stuff for its own event at an unspecified date.

Rumor: Galaxy S III to include waterproof seal

Samsung's Galaxy S III is fast becoming the biggest rumor monger in the Android universe, replacing the Galaxy Nexus at the top of ridiculous speculation. The latest tidbit comes from a "well-placed UK independent phone retailer", who claims that the next version of the Galaxy S family will come with a coating compound that blocks out water and other liquids in a pretty amazing fashion. He claims that both the Galaxy S III and the iPhone 5 will have a waterproof seal provided by Liquipel, whose gadget-dunking demonstrations impressed onlookers at CES 2012.
