Samsung Galaxy S3, a smartphone that was officially unveiled on May 3rd, in London have been warmly welcomed by the international press and Android enthusiasts. Samsung Galaxy S3 was launched on 28 markets on May 29th and the Europeans were the first to get their paws on the quad-core Samsung flagship.

Therefore, if you already got your hands on the new Samsung Galaxy S3 and you already got bored of the stock firmware, you would probably be glad to hear that CyanogenMod 9 Nightly build is now available for your device.

Of course CM9 Nightly ROM for Samsung Galaxy S3 is an early build, thus you might encounter some bugs. Here are the known issues of CM9 Nightly build for Samsung Galaxy S3: the FM Radio is not supported, using the LED flash might cause your terminal to force close and waking up the smartphone using the volume keys won’t work.

As you probably know, you will have to root your Samsung Galaxy S3 before flashing a custom ROM, which will void the warranty. So, if you are OK with loosing the warranty of a smartphone that costs over $700, the guys at Android.gs wrote a tutorial on how to update Samsung Galaxy S3 with official CM9 Nightly ROM.

Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a quad-core Exynos 4 Quad chipset clocked at 1.4 GHz, 1 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB of internal storage. The smartphone also comes with 50 GB of free Dropbox storage for two years and an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash and full HD video recording capabilities.

Some of the features that impressed once the Galaxy S3 was demoed are Smart Alert, Smart Stay, Burst Shot, Best Photo, Pop up Play and many other such goodies.

The Samsung flagship will soon hit the US market and it will be LTE-friendly, but the quad-core Exynos processor that underpins the international model doesn’t support 4G connections. Therefore, the US variant will sport a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 chipset, but to compensate the two cores, the South Korean company have fitted one extra gigabyte of RAM.
