While the world is still regaining from the trance that the Samsung Galaxy SII has put it in, rumors about the next phone from the mobile phone giant in the same Galaxy series have surfaced. Unsurprisingly, the phone is to be called Galaxy SIII and is to be more than just a significant improvement over the current, popular SII. There is no working model of the device anywhere in the world except perhaps in the Samsung labs but some information and pictures and a few details have definitely been leaked.
The details of the phone have allegedly been sourced from Samsung representatives but irrespective of the source, they are impressive. That would be an understatement, they are mind-blowing. The Galaxy SIII will feature a quad core processor clocked at 2.0GHz, which if considered in the present, is more powerful than several computer CPUs.
In addition, it will have 1.5GB of RAM and a whopping 32GB of in-built hard disk space. The most impressive feature of the phone, hardware wise will be the screen. Users will be treated to 4.65” of Super AMOLED III display that is to be built exclusively for the SIII.
Rumor has it that the resolution will be an amazing 1280×1024, which is huge but quite weird as the aspect ratio will become 4:3. The size and the resolution of the screen mean that the pixel density will be 352ppi, the highest any smartphone has seen so far. The camera is going to be a huge 10 megapixel snapper that can record full HD video at 1080p resolution at a high quality 60fps.
On the outside, the phone will be cased in metal and measure no more than 9mm. All of this will be powered by a 2,250mAh battery, which should do the job for the average user. The newest feature of the phone is the in-built Near Field Communication capability so that means several services can be handled without taking the phone out of the pocket and the like.
Software wise, it will feature the Ice Cream Sandwich distribution of the Android OS with the TouchWiz 5 overlay for easy application access. Currently, the phone is under development and Samsung plans to announce it at the MWC 2012 event and probably release it sometime in 2012. While the specifications are very impressive, some of them are hard to believe and it is inconceivable to think of a 4:3 aspect ratio. For now, the best that enthusiasts can do is wait with crossed fingers!
