Updated: added info about availability, updated again

Samsung today announced the Galaxy S III, its new global flagship phone for 2012. The phone sports rounded design, 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 8-megapixel main camera, 2-megapixel front camera, and NFC. It runs Android 4.0 with a new version of Samsung TouchWiz that trims back some Samsung's earlier customizations, while adding smart features, such as using the front camera to keep the screen lit as long as the user is actually looking at the phone. It also sports automatic facial recognition in photos taken, linking them to contact photos in the phone, enabling easy sharing and album grouping by person. The phone sports a glass front with gently rounded edges and a coated polycarbonate back plate. The international version sports a quad-core Samsung processor and will be available in two colors and three sizes of internal memory: 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB. It will also support SDXC memory cards, up to 64 GB, for up to 128 GB total storage. Samsung said that a version of the S III will be available for U.S. LTE networks in June.
