Samsung Galaxy S3 Release Event Live hours away Samsung

South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics is all set to finally take the wraps off its next generation Galaxy smartphone, aka Galaxy S3, at a press event in London today. The unpacked event is scheduled to be held at 2 p.m. ET (7 p.m. London time) at the Earls Court Olympic venue.

The latest rumors about the most anticipated features of the Galaxy S3 have set the tech world on fire with Samsung enthusiasts around the world going crazy about the smartphone.

If the latest rumor about the device is to be believed, the much awaited quad-core Android Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone will come in both blue and white. The rumor was based on an image, which was sent by an anonymous tipster to GSMArena. The image listed two products, Samsung Galaxy S3 Blue and Samsung Galaxy S3 White, with product codes SAMSGHGLYXBLUE and SAMSGHGLYXWHI respectively.

In case of features, one thing has officially been confirmed that the Galaxy S3 will sport an Exynos 4 Quad chip clocked at above 1.4GHz. But what about the other features? Will it offer a 4.6-inch display or something even bigger is on its way? Will it feature the same 8-megapixel camera found in the Galaxy S2 or the rumored 12-megapixel one will become reality?

Well, in just few hours, all these questions will be answered.
