Are you a fan of Samsung? If you are, then there is great news from Samsung. The most-anticipated android smartphone – Galaxy S3 – is around the corner. The new flagship device is building momentum with Rado-style ceramic design and awesome features.
Samsung has been keeping its lips sealed about the most-anticipated Galaxy phone, but Galaxy S3 has appeared on Mobilecityonline.com Web site and even users are pre-ordering the device from the retailer store. However, it is doubtful whether the page is genuine or not. Nonetheless, this is not the first time that Galaxy S3’s design has been leaked earlier online.
The Rado-style design suggests edge-to-edge 4.65-inch (or 4.8-inch) Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen with HD resolution of 720 X 1280 pixels. Galaxy S3 will have ceramic casing, instead of cheap plastic casing like its predecessor, Galaxy S2.
Galaxy S3 will be packed with Quad-core Exynos processor with clock frequency of 1.5 GHz (or 1.8 GHz). There will be 2GB of RAM in the device to muscle up overall performance. It is also rumored that the Galaxy S3 will feature a 12-megapixel rear snapper. However, we won’t be surprised if Samsung sticks with the old 8-megapixel camera in its new device. There will be a secondary 2-megapixel camera in the device for video calling. 4G connectivity and optional NFC feature are also suspected. Galaxy S3 will also give the new taste of Ice Cream Sandwich (Android OS 4.0). The device is expected to come with internal memory options of 16/32GB with microSD card slot for expandable storage.
There is also a large possibility of Samsung releasing different variants of Galaxy S3, just as it has released Galaxy S2 variants.
As for the release date of Galaxy S3, previously it was expected that Samsung will reveal its new flagship device at MWC 2012. Last year, Barcelona’s MWC was home ground for Samsung where it launched Galaxy S2. However, the Korean tech giant simply skipped the Mobile Congress this year without making any major announcement. Now, reports are high that Samsung will be showing off its new flagship device during the London Olympic Games in summer. Other reports claim an April release would give Galaxy S3 a solid head start over iPhone 5, which is expected to debut in June/July or September/October.
