Samsung Galaxy S3 Launched Today In 28 Countries

Samsung Galaxy S3 was launched today in 28 countries of Europe and other world regions. This is the largest product launch in the history of Samsung, as their Galaxy S III flagship was officially released on 28 markets.

But Samsung has even bigger plans, as the company plans to launch the Galaxy S3 at 296 carriers from 145 countries by the end of July. It seems like everybody wants Samsung’s flagship, as the South Korea-based company received pre-orders for more than 9 million Galaxy S3 units in just two weeks, a figure that should make Apple worry.

The third generation of Samsung Galaxy S is announced to be more popular than its successor, Galaxy S2, a smartphone that helped the South Korean company overtake Apple – its main rival – and become world’s biggest smartphone vendor. Samsung Galaxy S III hit the market a few months before Apple’s new iPhone model, thus the South Korean smartphone might help in increasing the gap between the two companies.

Compared with the current Apple flagship, iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S3 comes pre-loaded with the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich version and a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution, considerably bigger and better than the one installed on iPhone 4S. The flgaship smartphone also sports HSDPA (up to 21 Mbps) connectivity, a quad-core Exynos 4 Quad chipset clocked at 1.4 GHz, 1 GB of RAM and an 8 megapixel camera with support for full HD video recording.

The carriers helped Samsung Galaxy S III become a popular before the official market debut, with their marketing campaigns that managed to make the smartphone enthusiasts curios and some of them formed lines in front of retail stores in Berlin since Monday night, hoping to be among the first to get their hands on a Samsung Galaxy S3 unit, before it runs out of stock.

Rumor has it that only the white version of Samsung Galaxy S3 will be available starting today, as the pebble blue model will be delayed due to¬†manufacturing¬†faults of the back lid. Samsung haven’t confirmed this yet, but they are reportedly working to solve the issue and they will make it soon available for purchase.
