Samsung will soon take the wraps off its latest Samsung Galaxy S smartphone later today in jolly ol' England.
The new Samsung Galaxy S III is set for launch in London at 11 a.m. PT/ 2 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. UK time.
The Galaxy S III is expected to be one of the hottest Google Android smartphones of the year. It's the third generation of device in a popular series that started with the Samsung Galaxy S and the Samsung Galaxy S II. And even though little is known about the details of the Samsung Galaxy S III ahead of the launch, it's expected to be a hot-seller too.
That said, the rumor mill has been churning and some blogs report it could have a quad-core processor a large screen in the 4.7 inches to 4.8 inches range. Fans are also hoping the display will be Super AMOLED or even Super AMOLED Plus.
It's unclear whether Samsung will announce U.S. carriers today for the new phone at the event. If not, it's likely the company will talk about its U.S. debut next week at the CTIA trade show in New Orleans.
