Here's the latest on the Samsung Galaxy S III

Here's the latest on the Samsung Galaxy S III
The latest speculation about the most anticipated Android model of the year, the Samsung Galaxy S III, comes from GSM Helpdesk. According to The Verge, the image on the screen resembles a TouchWiz skinned version of Gingerbread that was used on promotional material last year for the Samsung Galaxy S II. That doesn't automatically mean that the picture is a fake, but on the other hand, it doesn't inspire confidence in it either. The picture also resembles one we recently showed you that claimed to be that of the Samsung Galaxy S III, that showed the logo of a public relations firm in the corner.

The new mockup of the Samsung Galaxy S III (R) matches one from the other day

According to the latest information, the Samsung Galaxy S III will have a 4.7 inch screen with 720p resolution. A 12MP camera will be on back and inside the model a 1750mAh battery will power the handset. Under the hood you will find a quad-core 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. The whole shebang weighs 125 grams.

Samsung is expected to announce the Samsung Galaxy S III during a press event on May 22nd. Between now and then, as we get closer to the event, you can expect to see more pictures supposedly of the Samsung Galaxy S III, and read more specs allegedly belonging to the device. There will be differences between them. For example, compare the specs leaked with today's story to those from the other day which included a 4.8 inch 1080p screen, and 2GB of RAM.

Cool off the ipad? I thought you said earlier you had any ipad and it doesn't have charger or overheating problems?!

Also it seems you still didn't realise the errors in your ways and to which people the word 'sheep' is applicable. Its okay ifans are not wrong for their extraordinary high mental abilities

But however i do wonder why a person showing so defense of apple and talks about how using their products is so good has listed The Samsung Galaxy s2 AT&T as the phone they 'have' on their profile?

This leads to the conclusion you may just be trolling here just for the sake of trolling which makes you worse than even ifans,as they troll but are too stupid or under the apple pr influence to know any better while you know quite what your doing and still continue to troll. its also now time for people to stop feeding the troll.

Speculation wont stop with the GS3 until it is announced. Just like what happens with the Iphone.

Got to love fanboyism.....

FAKE... 105%

They just slapped the GS2 homescreen over the last "Leaked" hardware.

http://www.theandroidsoul.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/TouchWiz-4.0-for-Galaxy-S.jpg?9d7bd4

Compare the weather, temperate (high/low). Everything is same from the TW4 in GS2. They just replaced London with Barcelona. Even the family is same and pictures below it.

The icons should be square in shape. Look carefully. They are rectangular. Height is more. Pure FAKE.

The capacitive buttons are too "glowy". Obvious that they have been morphed into the picture. Amateur photo edit.

Notification bar is GB style, ICS should be blue.

Also, the pic on the left has 5 apps in the bottom dock while the one on the right has four. Plus the temperatures don't even match up between the two. That's way too poorly done to have been made by a professional.

Yeah, the 5 app dock bar was the first thing I noticed too. I'm betting that's a screenshot from the Note. The dock bar icons on the right don't look right at all, I think those are the old icons.

I will point out that ICS for the GS2 looks just like the GingerBread. You have to open up the app drawer to notice any real differences.

I'm thinking that this may very well be what the HARDWARE will look like. But since ICS hasn't been finalized on Samsung hardware, the marketing team is photoshopping old screens on the pics.

Also note that virtally ALL marketing material for stuff like this is photoshopped. Reason 1: taking a photo of a device with the screen on looks like crap. Reason 2: most material like this is usually a render.

We still get customers complaining of poor reception or dropping calls with the iphone 4,the problem was never fixed. The only real answer we give customers is its an iphone, theyre are known for that

Well we dont get customers back complaining with any of the other phones we sell for dropping calls and the customers who send their iphone 4 away for repair for dropped calls issues say they dont drop calls on any of the loan phones issued but then drop calls again on the iphone 4 when they use it again when it comes back from repair

But looking at it now your right it cant be an iphone problem,apple said it didnt exist right? If only i saw yourn comment earlier id say saved many customers from grief with their iphone troubles.

I'm not concerned with the iPhones screen size. Screen size doesn't make a phone good or bad it's preference. If that was the case I'd buy the note. I want the new iPhone cuz of the brilliant functionality

Should be QUAD-core if you read your sources again ;)

I don't understand why people are complaining about the bezel being too big. It looks plausible enough to me, especially on the left and right sides.

10. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)


Way too much of bezel surrounding the screen! And too small battery!

Btw, anyone buying the previous full hd screen rumour is a retard.

posted on 21 Mar 2012, 12:17

12. Commentator (Posts: 2328; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)


The size of the battery depends on whether it's quad or dual core. If it's quad then I agree that the battery is way too small. If it's dual though it should be fine. And yeah, 1080p on a 4.8" screen would be absolutely pointless. That's 458.94 ppi.

21. Commentator (Posts: 2328; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)


No, this is more pointless, as at least the iPad's screen is big enough to tell the difference between it and the iPad 2. If the whole Retina Display thing is to be believed, the human eye wouldn't even be able to tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on a 4.8" screen.

How about a 4" screen; or 4.3"? These huge screens are not pleasant to hold. And damn I miss the optical mouse from the D.inc. You can't find a good phone ww one of those anymore. A high-end android phone with an optical mouse would likely have my business.

nothing from that phone is innovating.. not sure why all the hate for the iphone when this phone brings nothing new to the table, Quadcore?.. check.. 720 screen.. got Nexus?... check, not surprise on the design as they saw how successfull was the same desing iphone,, Samsung will repeat the same formula for the phone of the year 2011

Im sorry. But im calling bull on this. even though i normally respect your comments because you can argue like a human being. But really? Look at the design on this phone. Its BEAUTIFUL. even if a rendering. Nothing about this phone says iPhone.
iPhone-No Quad Core. no LTE. No bigger screen size. and probably gonna be more durable than the iPhone.
And what do you mean "Got Nexus?" the phone will have ICS when it launches. But i will say. As far as design. You MUST be blind to think this looks like the iPhone. if thats the case then so Does the Galaxy Note.

White looks better with LCD screens in my opinion, just because the backlit-black doesn't clash as much with a white bezel as it does with a black bezel. On AMOLED devices I prefer black because the blacks in the screen literally blend in with the black bezel.
