Samsung's Galaxy S2 is the fastest-selling smartphone from the South Korea-based company and it seems its successor, the Galaxy S3 may soon be on its way. While Samsung is still rolling out its Galaxy S2 in the U.S., details of the Galaxy S3 has been leaked to Phandroid, which received a snapshot of a slide allegedly within an internal presentation on smartphone evolution to carrier and retail representatives. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is expected to be released next year.
The slide notes that the third-generation Galaxy smartphone will feature specs such as:
- A 1.8GHz dual-core Exynos 4212 processory;
- 2GB of RAM;
- A 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display;
- A 12-megapixel camera.
- A thinner device than Samsung's current Galaxy S II models;
- 4G LTE support;
- And a NFC chip.
But unlike the upcoming Nexus Prime the Galaxy S3 won't be using a curved display, according to Phandroid, and the design language of the phone will be different from the current Galaxy S lineup so as to avoid future legal issues. The handset will run on the upcoming Android Ice Cream Sandwich build, and will reportedly retain four physical buttons.
Google Inc.'s Nexus Prime won't make its debut on Tuesday, as the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event was allegedly cancelled because of Steve Jobs' death. The compabies didn't truly specify why there was a postponement, but others have speculated that its because of the Apple's former CEO's death.
Samsung and Google decide to postpone the new product announcement at CTIA Fall. We agree that it is just not the right time to announce a new product. New date and venue will be shortly announced, Samsung said in a statement.
But with all this reportedly leak on the next generation of Galaxy S smartphones, it must be noted however, that it is just unconfirmed information at this time. Phandroid also noted that there were glaring flaws in the actual image they received, as the original Galaxy S is listed as shipping with an Exynos CPU as well as other typos were found.
