Samsung Galaxy S III to be thinner than iPhone 4S at just 7mm thick?

Phones keep getting thinner and thinner. But I, like many others, feel that there is a certain point at which "thinnest phone in the world" is too thin. I don't know what that point may be, but I think that Samsung may be pushing it if this rumor is true. Among other things, a new report says that the Samsung Galaxy S III will be just 7mm thick; or, 1.5mm smaller than the current Galaxy S series of smartphones. 

The report also details some other specs, like quad-core chips and LTE connectivity. Android 4.0 should be the OS of choice, and 8MP back- and 2MP front-facing cameras should round out the rest of the device. 

Nothing was leaked about any possible price, but there was a timeframe mentioned: the release should happen sometime in May. Hopefully, we'll see each edition of the GSIII come to market at a price under $200, but given the fact that most recent flagship phones have been floating around the $300 on-contract mark, I think my guess is a little too hopeful.
