Seems like just yesterday -- er, eight months ago -- we were breathlessly reporting on the stateside arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S II. But the smart phone landscape changes quickly, and now its successor is here. In a "Mobile Unpacked" event in London on Thursday, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S III handset -- a sleek slice of high-def goodness in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB flavors.

Samsung's new flagship Android phone has an appropriately impressive spec sheet. A 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED screen (720p resolution) promises exceptional contrast, with the caveat that it'll be a little less visible in sunlight. Take note: This screen is quite a bit bigger than the one found on the Galaxy S II, though it's nowhere near the size of Samsung's other recent release, the Galaxy Note.
