Nope, the 1080 screen will also only be on the sgs3+, just like decent LTE chips... oops, does it sound like I have an axe to grind?

Oct. 2 - i777 available (finally)
Oct. 15 - bought mine
Oct. 29 - skyrocket announced ?!?
Fortunately for me, I now know I would have picked the i777, but I was robbed of that choice! I know there's always going to be an "arms race" between manufacturers, but it's getting ridiculous. They should just invent Mobile Hardware Odin so we could always update!

Man these screen sizes are getting ridiculous and I have large hands. 4.27 is just slightly more than what I think is ideal, but 4.8 is humongous. The resolution is sweet though. because of it's size, this phone has a tendency to slip out of my hands quite a bit. a phone at that size with a ceramic build... *shudder*

Hopefully the phone itself won't be much bigger, just a bigger screen. They could cram it in there

DONATE TO ME
I have been thinking of grabbing a note but with more and more sgs3 info (rumor) coming out... might just keep my yearly upgrade and stick with my sgs2 for a little bit more.

And some features:

burst shot - you can take photos of moving objects or targets. using this option, you can photograph continuously up to 20 frames.

Best Photo - With this option you can shoot continuously up to 8 photos. The phone automatically selects the best photo depending on: clarity, brightness, contrast, face detection etc. You can always manually select another phot, of the 8.

Stay Smart - Stay Smart recognizes your eyes and prevents closing your phone as long as you look at it. It is a very useful function when you're reading an e- book or an E-mail.

Face and Voice unlock - a security option that recognizes your face, as well as your voice.

S-Beam - uses WiFi Direct and NFC. You don't have to hold the phones tight to each other to transfer a file, just touching them will suffice. you can transfer any type of file, of any size. if you're sending a video, you can start watching it although it's not completely transfered

S-Voice - Application used for voice commands. Languages known: English, Spanish, Latin Spanish, French, Italian, German and Korean
