Samsung Galaxy S3 pre-orders launched by Amazon

With the tech world eagerly awaiting the official Samsung Galaxy S3 release announcement, Amazon Germany has made it available for pre-order

 

With a flurry of Samsung Galaxy S3 rumours hitting the web on a now daily basis, the German arm of online retail giant Amazon has gone one further making the next-generation Android handset available for pre-order ahead of the handset’s official release date.

With the official Samsung Galaxy S3 release date expected to be confirmed at the handset’s official unveiling on May 3rd, Amazon Germany has offered eager consumers the chance to snap up the as yet unconfirmed handset earlier than planned handing the potential iPhone 4S rival a 599 Euros (£491) price tag.

Suggesting the handset will land with a 12-megapixel camera, the Amazon Germany Samsung Galaxy S3 listing has claimed to out the handset’s full specs sheet with a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display featuring alongside 16GB of internal storage, inbuilt LED flash and Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Specs

Far from the first time the third-generation Galaxy S handset has had its claimed specs splashed across the web, recent rumours, which come courtesy of gadget blog Boy Genius Report, suggested the iPhone 4S rival will land with a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor and Google’s latest mobile operating system, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Further marking the Samsung Galaxy S3 out as the leader of the smartphone market, the latest reports have suggested the handset will boast a 4.8-inch display with a stunning Full HD 1080p resolution and a film friendly 16:9 aspect ratio.

Elsewhere am unnamed Korean source has suggested the handset will boast a wireless conductive charging option. Although the reports have failed to indicate whether or not the required, and potentially costly, charging base station would come packaged with the handset, it is claimed the upcoming flagship Android handset will be able to restore its power reserves at a distance of 1-2 metres from the charging base.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Release Date


Originally widely expected to be the showpiece of MWC 2012, just before the Barcelona based show Samsung confirmed that it would hold off the Samsung Galaxy S3 release until later in the year.

“The successor to the GALAXY S II smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product,” an official spokesperson for the Korean tech giant announced.

Since Samsung’s disappointing revelation, the Galaxy S3 launch has become a thing of much speculation with the tech giant earlier this week issuing official event invites to the launch of a “new Galaxy” event for May 3rd, an event widely expected to see the S3 enter the realms of reality.
