Just a few days ago Samsung announced the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III, and now Canadian carriers that have committed to carrying the device include - Bell, TELUS, Rogers, SaskTel, Videotron, WIND Mobile and Mobilicity. The smartphone that was "designed for humans and inspired by nature" boasts many updated features from the Galaxy S II, including voice recognition software, a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, more memory (the S III will also be available in a 64GB model, as well as having the ability to support 64GB microSDHC cards), a more powerful battery (2100 mAh over the S II's 1650 mAh) and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. The camera on the device remains the same as it's predecessor at 8.0 MP, but improvements have been made to the camera app. Carrier model specifications, pricing and availability should be announced in the coming weeks, but we expect a launch date sometime in June.
