Samsung Galasy SIII rumor

Samsung Galaxy SIII Rumors

I was getting ready to renew my contract for the Nexus Prime but looking at these specs I will wait for my contract to expire first and save up for this. I know the first question we all have with those specs what would be the battery life.


Samsung Galaxy S III:
I personally found their talk of the Galaxy S III much more interesting. They didn’t have a working model of the phone, but they had pictures and slides with specs/info:

- Samsung is planning to reveal the Samsung Galaxy S III at the 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Samsung will try to get a simultaneous worldwide release for the Galaxy S III mid 2012.

- The Samsung representatives were happy with the success of the Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy S II, their great relationship with Google and Android, and were talking about how they’re constantly trying to push the boundaries of mobile hardware technology. They revealed that the Galaxy S III will be their next flagship phone in 2012.

- The specifications for the SGSIII are of course subject to change, but are Samsung-developed 2.0GHz quad-core CPU (no codename given), 1.5gb RAM, 32gb internal memory (with sd card slot), and a 4.65 inch screen. A new display called Super AMOLED III is being developed specifically for the phone (SGS had Super AMOLED, SGS II had Super AMOLED Plus, SGS III has Super AMOLED III) with 1280x1024 resolution, giving the phone a ppi of 352, which they emphasized that a 352ppi will make it the highest ppi mobile phone.

- The reason for no demo phone was that the screen technology was still in the final stages of design and production of them have not started.

- The device is 9mm thick, has a metal and glass body (a really clean, shiny look to it in the pictures), has a 2250mAh battery, 10 megapixel camera and is capable of shooting 1080p video at 60 frames per second.
- The phone will come with an inbuilt NFC chip.

- The phone will have Androids latest Ice Cream Sandwich software and an all new TouchWiz 5 which has been in co-development with Google during the development of the Galaxy Nexus, so according to the Samsung representatives, it isn’t as “intrusive to Android” as previous TouchWiz versions were. It seems TouchWiz will play a minor role and only have little improvements to ICS. It won’t control the user experience.

- One of the reasons why they’re not going with a full TouchWiz experience is for a few reasons, one being that the ICS experience is very user friendly already and also it will also Samsung to update software on their phones at a faster rate than they have in the past.

- Price wasn’t revealed, but for all the specs of the phone, I’m guessing it’ll be very expensive.

6 months is a lot of time for yet even more newer shinier things to be announced, which could put you on a course of perpetual waiting and discontent. imo

Actually I am waiting for my contract to finish that would exactly match the release of galaxy SIII. I got my galaxy S with a 2 year contract.
And anyway mobile 4g is coming here from January of next year so buying any other phone is not a good Idea at the moment.

2G and 3G wont be going away anytime soon. Even with the high speeds of 4G, how many people really need it? 3G HSDPA is good for some 42Mb/s or thereabouts (network and phone permitting), certainly more than I require to read the news, check my email or stream some videos.

Wonder if Samsung is trying to shift interest from the Prime to the S3, even when they make both

Oh nice! This is a juicy rumor.

I don't find the leaked source odd. I think the leak is to slow down sales primarily for the upcoming iPhone 5.
