As per rumors, we won’t get the Pebble Blue model of Samsung’s new Galaxy S 3 when the device gets officially shipped. Its release date has been delayed as the South Korean firm seems to have faced some technical glitches while producing the battery cover for the Galaxy S3. As a result, Samsung was forced to bin around 600,000 rear blue covers. That means consumers will not get the particular version of the phone when it will possibly land in stores later this month. Samsung announced the Galaxy S3 early May and it was then slated for shipment on 29, May 2012.
“Sammy apparently ran into some problems with manufacturing the blue casings of the phone, which may cause delays to its release into the market,” says Android Authority. Referring to some reports, the site says that undetermined production glitches have blocked Samsung from producing blue cases for the device. It is indeed a shocking thing that Samsung had to dump thousands of back covers due to some tech issues. Maybe, the company might have started production of replacements for the discarded blue casings with no issues.
However, there is no possibility for the delay of the entire Galaxy S3 models. The company for the first time announced a Galaxy S version with multiple body colors. Fans of Galaxy S have been keenly waiting for the Pebble Blue variant of the device. Anyway, it looks like that the new version of Galaxy will make a huge impact in the tech world with many incredible new features and capabilities. Here we make a rundown through the notable features of the upcoming Galaxy S handset.
Large display: Samsung has unveiled its third generation Galaxy S handset with a large 4.8-inch display. After the Galaxy Note, the S 3 is now the second largest handset from Samsung. The company’s recent Galaxy Nexus has a 4.65-inch display, however. Well, the handset sports a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that packs 720 x 1280 pixels at a superb 306 ppi. The display is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 2 against scratches.
Quad core processor: Galaxy S 3 is the first handset from Sammy to feature a high performance quad core processor. The Korean handset maker has deployed its own Exynos 4212 Quad chipset inside the handset instead of other alternatives like Nvidia’s Tegra 3, which powers HTC’s One X. The gadget features a 1.4 GHz Cortex-A9 processor, Mali-400MP GPU and 1GB of RAM for a neat performance.
Better memory: It is yet another brilliant Galaxy S 3 feature. To shorten the gap in competition with iPhone, Samsung has launched three memory variants for the Galaxy S 3. The new member to the Galaxy S series thus comes with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants. Users, who have to store huge amount of data, can take home the 64GB variant of the handset.
Powerful battery: Another outstanding thing with the Galaxy S III is it powerful battery. The device mounts a standard Li-Ion 2100 mAh battery that offers better battery life. You will get talk time up to 11 hours and 40 minutes on 3G with the device. On standby, it will get around 800 hours.
Nice form factor: Despite having no revolutionary changes in thinness and weight from its predecessor, the S 3 highlights a cute design. The handset is looking quite gorgeous. The handset measures 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm and it weighs at 133 grams also.
Hopefully, Samsung will be able to quickly manage the current technical glitches with the Galaxy S 3’s much-hyped Pebble Blue version. The company will roll out the model soon after its other versions are available in stores. The tech world is really waiting for the S 3 at the moment.
