A major topic of discussion in smartphone circles is, when will the Samsung Galaxy S III be released? Its predecessor is one of the most popular models in the world, and the new version is expected to garner many millions of users. But when that’s going to happen is an open question.
Rumors are all over the place. A recent one said the launch would be in April, but Samsung quickly denied this. That leaves May as the next possibility, but the latest report suggests that consumers might have to wait until June.
A bit of hope comes from Eldar Murtazin, who sometimes gets good tips on upcoming events from industry insiders. He says via Twitter that the design for the Galaxy S III has been finalized, so production can begin soon.
What’s supposedly an image of this upcoming model (shown at right) has appeared on the Web, though there’s no way to be sure whether this is a sneak peek at the actual device or just someone’s dream.
Preview of the Samsung Galaxy S III
According to unconfirmed reports, Samsung’s next flagship model will debut running Google Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on a 1.5 GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor with 2GB of RAM. The amount of built-in storage capacity has not yet leaked out.
The Galaxy S III will supposedly be well supplied with multimedia features, starting with a 4.8-inch 1920 x 1080 Super AMOLED display for showing video, images, and other content. It will have an 8MP rear-facing camera plus a 2MP front-facing one.
In addition to 4G LTE, this model will allegedly include a full set of other wireless features, though NFC is an open question. Other features are equally unknown, like the size of its battery and whether it will have a microSD memory card slot.
