After plenty of rumors and speculation, Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy S III, the successor to the smash-hit Android-powered device that debuted last year. The Samsung Galaxy S III makes plenty of improvements over last year's model, aiming to make sure that the Galaxy S brand stays at the top of the Android hill for just a bit longer. As far as specifications go, we're looking at a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, with a resolution of 720x1280.

Inside, there's a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and expandable memory to make sure that you're able to keep all your photos on your handset. The phone is thinner than the previous version as well, making the screen size feel manageable in the hand.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the definitive Galaxy S device, as it follows in line with the design elements that have made it so popular in the past. However, at the saem time, Samsung's legal troubles with the Cupertino-based Apple have obviously been put front and center in the design of the new handset. Samsung suggests that the new Galaxy S III is designed with nature in mind, which could be true.

However, more than anything, it's obvious that they were aiming to stay as far away from Apple's lawyers as possible. The device's edges are no longer uniformly curved; the display is now flanked by off-set edges; and the new Galaxy S III also features a slight chin, making it even more distinct from an Apple-branded creation.

While the Galaxy S III may not be a handset that stands out on its own against the competition, the device is surely going to see plenty of adoption across the globe. What's better, though, is that Samsung is aiming to launch the new Galaxy S device here in the States for all four major wireless carriers, which is something that didn't happen with the Galaxy S II. While the global, international version will see the light of day first, if Samsung can manage to launch the new smartphone here in the States soon after, then Samsung may be able to narrowly avoid being swept aside by Apple, and other Android-based manufacturers.

The bonuses of the Galaxy S III by Samsung may outweigh the negatives, which in the mobile industry counts for more than many would think. While the Galaxy S III's display is indeed a 720p HD panel, the fact that it is PenTile may sway some people away from it. However, that 1.4GHz quad-core processor could very well draw them back in. More than anything, the Samsung Galaxy S III is a natural contender for the Android throne, and Samsung has managed to create another smartphone that will more than be enough to make plenty of people out there happy in a purchase.

We are still early in the year, though, so we will have to wait and see how the other smartphone manufacturers stack up against the Galaxy S III, and Samsung in general. Will HTC and LG create devices to take it down? Or how will Apple respond? Only time will tell, and thankfully we shouldn't have to wait too long to find out.
