    The news just keeps rolling in about the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S 3. The latest news/rumor comes by way of BGR who are claiming that there will be an international roll-out for the device, and it will be the official handset of the 2012 Summer Olympics. No U.S. love? According to their source, yes there is. New York City could see it's own launch event of the Galaxy S 3 along with Dubai and Seoul. The handset will come in 2 colors and storage options as well. There will be a blue & black version, and a second version in white along with 16GB and 32GB of storage space. Rounding out the spec list includes: 1080p HD display, a quad-core Exynos processor and integrated 4G LTE.

    The hype is becoming eerily similar to that of the iPhone. The Android mobile space is in much need of a handset that can deliver on the hype and this handset will hit the mark.

    So like one of the iphone's worst features, we have to pay more for the storage "option". I hope it at least has a removable battery, but probably not. Glad it will be an international release though.

    No Verizon would be an even worse feature. The rumors sound like everyone is getting it.

    I don't have an issue with fixed storage. I've never used more than my 16gig card in my DX. Others may and that could be a problem for them, but not me. Same with the battery, except for the occassional battery pull, but if a keypress will do the same thing or a tiny reset button, I'd be fine with that too.

    I hope this comes to Verizon. Right now I'm between this and the Fighter (Razr HD?).

    Same, I hope this is released on Verizon! And why are people not seeming to be excited about this phone? To my knowledge, the fact that the screen is 1080p is definitely good, quad-core processor, 4G LTE and color options. Though anything is an upgrade from my Droid Pro, won't this be the best Android phone in terms of specs?

    ^Yes to your last question.

    I'm very excited about this phone. Hoping the build quality is great, too. Cause let's face it, looking at the back side of the Nexus is ugly.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm excited. Trying to decide between galaxy 3 and note/journal. I hope verizon gives me the chance to have to make the decision.

    I'm pretty excited about the rumored specs, although what would a ceramic case be like? I've never had or held a phone with ceramic casing. Does it scratch easily, feel weird, feel cold, anything like that? Compared to plastic

    I keep hearing about ceramic watches but I've never held one.

    I think it will. The only reason we didn't see the S2 launch for VZW was because they didn't want to launch it along side of the GNex. Since I highly doubt Verizon will ever be getting to launch the Nexus again (or even have the Nexus) this will be Samsungs primary phone for Verizon. I hope the screen is at least good as it is on the Charge. I'm all about resolution, after having to struggle with a TBolt with epic glare problems- it's vitually unusable in the sunlight! Samsung also unlocks their bootloaders, plus this phone should have a pretty good following. Yeah, SGS3 it is!

    3300mAh+ is a must now for me. Hopefully the battery will equal or be greater than razr maxx

    Grab the blade of a ceramic knife, it would be similar in feel.

    Does not scratch as easily as plastic.

    Yes it is cooler/warmer to the touch...depending on ambient air temperature.

    There is no way this device will be 1920x1080.

    It'll be the "Phone of the Year!" ... for the summer months. Then once the Fighter comes out, it'll claim that spot... I'm glad they've slowed down new releases tho. I'd definitely be diggin this if it's on VZW and it comes with that "bezel-less" face some rumors were saying a while ago. If it doesn't, I'll just wait to see whats out at my upgrade next April.

    Those are my two choices too. My upgrade is ready and I'm getting impatient.

    Yeah, the wait is killing me. I'm not hearing any more about the note/journal coming to verizon though. I would like for them both come the same day so i don't end up choosing by default.
