Compare that with the last iteration of the Galaxy S device: the GS2 was 8.49mm thick.
Other information from the (still a rumor) report is that the Galaxy S II will have an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a Super AMOLED Plus display and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).
Other, earlier, rumors suggested that the GS3 would have a quad-core processor and (should be ubiquitious) 4G LTE support, as well as 2GB of RAM.
That would make the GS3 as powerful as many computers of just a few years ago.
The spec everyone wants, though, is the date of launch. Although earlier reports reported an April launch, the Electronic Times News said May would be the date. It's unclear if that means launch as in launch event, or launch as in store shelves.
Meanwhile, U.S. users should get used to the idea of waiting. Both the Galaxy S and GS2 arrived in the states long after other countries received them.
