Samsung Galaxy S III Specifications Leaked
This one is going straight into the ‘Rumours’ drawer in the Gadget Helpline’s tech news filing cabinet, but do read on for some interesting information on the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Firstly, it’s around about the time we should start hearing about Samsung’s next flagship smartphone – it’s been around 6 months since the Galaxy S II launched, and Apple are about to announce their next iPhone. Samsung need to stir up some interest to compete with Apple again.
An anonymous tipster has apparently spent some time at a Samsung headquarters where he has both played with the Nexus Prime and heard plenty about the Galaxy S III. Hold tight folks, the specifications list rumoured for Samsung’s next Galaxy S phone is incredible. We just hope it turns out to be true.
- Quad-core 2.0GHz processor.
- 1.5GB RAM, expandable memory with 32GB built-in.
- 4.65-inch Super AMOLED III display developed specially for this phone with an odd 1280 x 1024 resolution, which will give it a pixel density of 352-PPI, the highest on a smartphone so far.
- 10 megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p videos at 60fps.
- Metal body with 9mm thickness and a 2,250mAh battery.
- Built-in NFC.
Pretty mindblowing stuff, right? The Quad-Core processor is certainly a possibility for a next-generation smartphone that is due to be released within the first four months of 2012. We already know Nvidia are developing the Kal-el Quad-Core processor which could be used in the Galaxy S III.
It would also make perfect sense for Samsung to showcase the next amazing screen technology they come up with in the Galaxy S III. Currently we have the Super AMOLED Plus screen, and apparently we’re going to see something much better in the next handset – a pixel density of 352 pixels per inch and a resolution of 1280 x 1024. As GSMArena points out, this resolution does seem a little strange for a smartphone.
As expected, this phone will definitely be running the next incarnation of Android which has been officially named Ice Cream Sandwich. Samsung will also be adding their TouchWiz user interface, with version 5 being the rumoured build that will debut on this phone.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S III – whatever the specifications – at the MWC conference in Barcelona next February. They chose the same event this year to announce the Galaxy S II, so it makes perfect sense.
As these are the first whispers we’ve heard about the next Galaxy S, take it with a pinch of salt. Be sure to let us know what you think of the specifications above, are you sceptical or do you think they could be right?
