Galaxy S III depth
Measuring 136.6mm by 70.6mm by 8.6mm, the handset is a little thicker than its predecessor — the Galaxy S II, which was 8.49mm deep — but it still manages to come in a little slimmer than the iPhone 4S and HTC One X.
As for its specs, the Galaxy S III is a range-topping device. It comes with a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED 720p display, a quad-core 'Exynos 4' processor, 1GB RAM and an 8-megapixel camera with burst shot options. The camera has zero shutter-lag, according to Samsung.
In the UK, Orange, T-Mobile, Three, Vodafone and O2 have confirmed they will carry the phone, but have not revealed the price of their plans. Retailers such as Phones4U are also selling it.
