Samsung Galaxy S3 and Apple iPhone 5 – the two monster smartphones are making a lot of buzz in smartphone gossip zone. Probably they are the most-anticipated devices in the whole mobile gadget history. Apple iPhone 5 is considered as a Galaxy S3 killer, while Samsung’s gem is being deliberated as a major threat to iPhone 5, especially with its new Rado-style ceramic design.
Galaxy S2 has been a great success for Samsung. Galaxy S2 design is very popular with a slim profile of 8.5mm, in spite of the fact that the Korean tycoon used cheap plastic material in designing it. Galaxy S3’s design is going to be more ceramic rather than getting cheap plastic casing like S2. Rado watches are popular for their unique design and scratchless rigidness. Samsung Galaxy S3 is also expected to feature a similar Rado-style design.
The screen size of Galaxy S3 is expected to be 4.6-inch or 4.8-inch with HD resolution of 720 X 1280 pixels. The device is going to maintain the slim profile of its predecessor, making it much thinner than iPhone 4S and even the much-expected iPhone 5.
On the other hand, Apple is using a universal screen size in its every new release – 3.7-inch screen in iPhone and 9.7-inch screen in iPad. The rumors are high that Apple is going to bump up the new iPhone’s screen size but the probability is low. Apple iPhone sports Retina display with qHD resolution of 540 X 960 pixels. Apple’s old habits suggests that it either doubles the resolution in new flagship device or keeps it same. So the Cupertino-based company might stick to qHD resolution in its upcoming iPhone. Galaxy S3 will outrun iPhone 5, if it has the same resolution and screen size.
Apple iPhone 5 will surely have a new design. But we do not know what it will look like. However, the Rado-style ceramic design will make Galaxy S3 look outstanding, compared to Galaxy S2.
Last year Samsung released its Galaxy S2 at the Mobile World Congress show in Spain. It turned out to be one of biggest selling smartphones of the year. According to latest reports, more than 20 million Galaxy S2 smartphones have been sold. On the other hand, Apple shipped about 15 million iPhone 4S units around the globe in Q4 2011 alone. These two dual-core smartphones have taken competition in smartphone world to new heights. A cold war is brewing between Apple and Samsung since last year, which will also be seen in case of both these upcoming devices.
