Samsung Galaxy S3 launches today, watch live in Phones 4U

In just a few short hours, we'll finally meet the Samsung Galaxy S3 and you can watch the launch live in Phones 4U.

S3 day is here! The long-awaited day has finally dawned -- in just a few short hours, we'll meet the Samsung Galaxy S3.

The last tidbit of leaked information seems to reveal that the hotly tipped quad-core Android smart phone will come in blue or white flavours. To find out everything else you need to know about the most eagerly-anticipated smart phone of the year, stay right here at CNET.

If you're in London, you can head down to the Oxford Street branch of Phones 4U and watch the launch event live. If not, you can watch the live stream on your Android phone or tablet through the Samsung Unpacked app.

Phones 4U promises free food and drink too. If you do head over there, stick a snap of yourself on Facebook showing how much you're enjoying the launch -- and don't forget to send us a picture of the snacks on offer too. Mmm, snacks.

We know the S3 will pack an Exynos 4 Quad chip clocked at above 1.4GHz. But how big will the screen be? Will it be a 4.6-inch or 4.8-inch behemoth? Will the camera be an 8-megapixel or 12-megapixel supersnapper?

Stay right here for the answers to those questions and more. The S3 will be unveiled at 7pm tonight, and we'll be at the launch, bringing you the first news, hands-on previews and our thoughts on how the new phone shapes up against the competition. Plus you'll be able to see the S3 in action in a spiffy video.

If you can't bear the tension of the next few hours, check out our gallery of leaked photos of the S3. And press play on our video for more on the S3, how 4G will make Britain rich and a bizarre BlackBerry stunt:

It's a big week for Samsung, recently named the world's biggest phone maker, having tripled smart phone shipments in the last year, thanks to the S2 and its Galaxy and Tab ilk. The S3 is set to be another smash hit, giving the likes of the HTC One X, Nokia Lumia 900 and iPhone 4S a real run for their money.
