The next-generation Samsung cell phone Galaxy S III is rumored as poised to impress. Due in part, that it will not be launched for a few months yet, reports are mainly unconfirmed. However, South Korea’s Electronic Times News cited unnamed sources in its headlines when the Galaxy 3 specs of the handset were outlined.
This upcoming smartphone is touted to be the thinnest yet – 7mm thick. To put it in perspective, the Samsung Galaxy S II is housed in handset that is 8.49mm. And they both have some impressive specs. The next-generation Galaxy will sport the latest Android 4.0 mobile platform, an 8 megapixel rear camera, a 2 megapixel front camera and a Super AMOLED Plus display to please the eye. There are whispers that this smartphone will include a quad-core processor under the hood that would add some oomph to the experience.
With the difference in size, customers would have to change up some of the device accessories but the design and technology of protective bags, cases and sleeves are continually evolving and improving. The mobile device will include 2GB of RAM, but for high usage customers there are always removable memory and storage alternatives.
While we are sure to see more of this smartphone as it comes closer to the release date (likely to be May, but may potentially be seen on shelves as early as April). As this handset will have 4G LTE capabilities, Samsung may follow in the footsteps of its fellow vendors and make this upcoming smartphone an exclusive buy with one of the major mobile carriers. The hope is that they will give us an unlocked option as the current data plans for 4G LTE speeds are pretty pricey. By making the newest phones only available with exclusive mobile carriers, customers are put between a rock and a hard place: best, newest tech and exorbitant data plans that add up quick.
