Android 4.0 ICS:
Samsung Galaxy S3 Specs
A rumour that has cropped up comes courtesy of South Korea’s Electronic Times which suggests that a source close to the production of the phone has confirmed it will feature a thickness of just 7mm.
Whilst nothing is yet confirmed a number of recent leaked reports and rumoured hands-ons have suggested the Samsung Galaxy S3 will land with a bevy of high-end specs including a 4.65-inch rendition of the company’s now trademark HD Super AMOLED display with a stunning 1280 x 720p resolution.
Other expected Samsung Galaxy S3 specs that have been doing the rounds ahead of the handsets unveiling include 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a hefty 12-megapixel rear-mounted camera with the now customary 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities. A 2GHz dual-core processor has also been tipped for inclusion.
Much like the current Motorola RAZR, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of a number of handsets rumoured to be adding a nano tech coating in the form of the recently unveiled Liquipel that will see the device able to withstand the odd toilet drop or drink spill.
Contradicting some of these claimed specs, new reports from gadget blog Boy Genius Report have suggested Samsung’s next-generation handset will feature a larger screen than previously expected and one which sounds like a beast.
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.
On top of this, the iPhone 4S rival is tipped to land with a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor and Google’s latest mobile operating system, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Repeatedly rumoured, Samsung has officially unveil its own Exynos 4 quad-core processor hinting that the speedy CPU will land in the eagerly awaited Samsung Galaxy S3 handset. "Already in production, the Exynos 4 Quad is scheduled to be adopted first into Samsung's next Galaxy smartphone that will officially be announced in May," a company spokesperson said.
