Watch Samsung Galaxy S III Event Live

Samsung's Galaxy S III is one of the most hotly anticipated Android devices in recent memory -- and today, we'll finally get our first official peak at what Sammy has in store.

After approximately 97,346 Galaxy S III rumors (approximately 97,344 of which were completely made up), Samsung will finally reveal its next Galaxy smartphone at a media event in London this afternoon. To be fair, we don't technically know that the phone will be called the Galaxy S III -- some people predict it'll be stylized as "Galaxy S3," while I'm personally hoping for "¡¿GalaxySsS?!" -- but one way or another, we'll definitely be seeing some type of new Galaxy device. And after all the hype and promotion, if it isn't the Galaxy S III, S3, or whatever you want to call it, Samsung's gonna have one angry mob on its hands.

The good news: You don't have to be in London to witness the next Galaxy's arrival. You can watch Samsung's Galaxy S III event live right from your very own home, office, or Internet-equipped mud hut.
