Samsung Galaxy S3 rumors: it may come with 12 MP camera


    Samsung Galaxy S3 rumors are hitting the cyber world very fast. Meanwhile reports suggest that the smart phone may come with a 12 megapixel camera

    Third generation Galaxy S, probably a Galaxy S3, is expected to come up in the first half of the year. There are better chances that Samsung will unveil the next Galaxy S phone earlier than its usual release date in June. The company might have an intention to take control of the smartphone market from Apple iPhone, which launched an upgrade iPhone 4S late last year. So it is high time for the Korean technology maker to roll out its next version Galaxy S phone as early as possible.

    So far, several tech blogs have released details about what they call the tech specs of Galaxy S III. But remember that Samsung has not yet confirmed any of such reports. However, it is almost clear in the words of Mr. Shin, the president of the mobile communication section of Samsung, that the company is working on the next generation Galaxy S tablet, “Samsung may launch a 3rd version of its Galaxy S smartphone in the near future.”

    Here we look into the potential tech specs of Galaxy S3. The details are grabbed from various reports that speculate over the specs of Galaxy S3. Get through the article to see what Galaxy S3 may offer us anew in near future.

    Display screen
    The new Galaxy S is expected to feature a large 4.65-inch 1024p HD Super AMOLED Plus display with a SXGA resolution of 1280 x 1024. Some sources claim that it will be a 3D display as well. Anyway, we can see an advanced display from Samsung, the world leader in mobile display technology. Samsung should install a display that can really beat down the high definition Retina Display of iPhone 4S and the possible iPhone 5.

    We can look for eye-blazing performance from Galaxy S3 thanks to an ARM Cortex A9 2.0 GHz processor. There will be a RAM with an amazing capacity of 2GB. Well, you read it right. Reports indicate that Samsung is to make its next gen Galaxy S as powerful as a laptop.

    Different sources report that Samsung will mount either a 12-megapixel or 16-megapixel rear camera on Galaxy S3. The current version of Galaxy S has an 8-megapixel rear camera. Many recent or upcoming phones like iPhone 4S, Nokia Lumia 800, Droid RAZR and HTC Rezound are also up with 8-megapixel camera. So Samsung may make its Galaxy S3 a far powerful machine for image and video capturing.

    Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS)
    It may be the only certain thing that we can expect a Galaxy S3 will have. The latest version of Google Android has just debuted on Galaxy Nexus, Google’s third Nexus phone. Ice Cream Sandwich is a good competitor to both iOS 5 and Windows Phone 7.5 Mango with its advanced user-friendly features, cloud integration, interface and others. Of course, all new Android phones will get ICS as firmware.

    Form factor
    Galaxy S II is already one of the thinnest smartphones in the world. So the next upgrade to the device will be far thinner making it further competitive to iPhone 4S, which is thicker than Galaxy S2. Any info about the dimensions and weight of Galaxy S3 are not available from any sources.

    Better battery
    Galaxy S II just offers over eight-hour battery life. So, as per reports, there will be a better battery with Galaxy S3 making it work more than 10 consistent hours on a single recharge.

    What others say?
    TechRadar’s Rumor Meter has awarded a Quite Likely rank for Galaxy S3 with the above tech specs. Let us see what TechRadar’s Kate Solomon says of the upcoming Galaxy S3.

    “What’s more, the GPU may get a bit of an upgrade too, with the Mali-T604 GPU expected to join the quad-core CPU; the Mali-T604 is scalable up to four cores and reportedly offers up to five times better performance than its predecessors.”

    Galaxy S3, an upgrade to the market hit Galaxy S2, will certainly be the best Galaxy S series phone from Samsung. Lots of fantastic features, slight and thin body and advanced operating system will make Galaxy S III a real competitor to all its opponents including iPhone 5 when it is introduced. Let us hope Galaxy S3 can continue the success story of Galaxy S II and further it can intensify Android’s battle against iPhone.


    1. Im really looking forward to seeing this phone. I’m going to upgrade straight away from my Galaxy S. 🙂

    2. Samsung had better make the Galaxy S3 a LTE phone. Sony’s Xperia Ion, its LTE-supporting flagship, is only available in the USA and Japan. Samsung had better seize the opportunity to fill the market void.

      2012 will be the year when LTE becomes mainstream and widely supported.

    3. Unveil and release the darned thing already. I have a SGSII and love it but I’m looking forward to the SGSIII. Got a Galaxy Nexus but the speaker volume is not as loud as my SGSII, therefore I’m returning it (other disadvantages of GN compared with SGSII, slower processor, inferior camera), other than that I acutally love the GN, it also feels better to hold and the screen is BEAUTIFUL.
      Anywho, can’t wait for the SGSIII.

    4. I’m not convinced that the sources are good. The display resolution cannot be 1280×1024 because it would mean the aspect ratio is 4:3. The 4:3 ratio is never used in smartphones because it is almost square.
