Wow what a reveal!
Samsung Coffee Shop Edition, twice the price and half the features?
Wow what a reveal!
Care to enlighten those of us who are on the road?
That YouTube link doesn't help whilst I am on the road
The video doesn't show anything. It was a countdown to reveal essentially nothing.
Ah ok thank you
As tommej said, it was a complete and utter waste of time!
Yesterday, the hype-machine for the next galaxy device officially started with the launch of tgeltaayehxnx, a website displaying a twenty-four hour countdown. Today, that countdown hit zero, and visiting thenextgalaxy.com brings up a teaser video that shows very little. There are no shadowy renders of silhouettes to pique our interest, instead we're treated to some rather meaningless messages against a nebulous backdrop, accompanied by a piece from the Mass Effect 2 soundtrack.
The video closes with an invite to "stand out from everyone else," who are, apparently, sheep. How Samsung, which will very soon be the number one phone manufacturer in the world running the world's most popular smartphone OS, can call anyone but its own customers sheep isn't clear. Is Samsung attempting to start a global flamewar by invoking the tired iSheep diatribe? Perhaps. Either way, the next Galaxy S device will launch on May 3rd at a Samsung Unpacked event in London.

Major specs include a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display at 720p resolution, 8-megapixel primary and 1.9-megapixel front-facing cameras with burst and best-shot modes (similar to the HTC One series), 16 or 32GB of storage (a 64GB version is coming later) with microSD expansion, Bluetooth 4.0 support, GPS with GLONASS reception, high-throughput 40MHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, NFC, and a relatively large 2,100mAh battery. Processor specs aren't mentioned, but it's widely understood that the global version of the device will be using the recently-announced Exynos 4 Quad quad-core system-on-chip — regional variants could be using alternatives, just as the Galaxy S II did. The phone measures 8.6mm thick (136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm, to be exact) which is actually a bit thicker than the S II's 8.5mm. The global version will support 21Mbps HSPA+, though Samsung is quick to point out that certain local models will have 4G. (Source)
The S3 is "designed for humans" apparently...
