A true powerhouse. Sigh... here's to hoping and praying VZW picks it up this time around. On another note it will always be a darn shame Nokia went the WP7 only route.

Wow if that is true then this spring should be sweet. The Samsung Galaxy S III so far looks to be one hell of a smart phone, or should I say the world's smartest phone. lol It’s going to be simply amazing. The tech is moving at lightning speed. Imagine what will be around in 2 short years from now.

ive followed eldar for quite a while...he always speaks true about Samsung. remember his early 2011 tweets about Samsung Galaxy S2. all were true. he also said he had early sample of GS2 and has tested it before it made way to barcelona. his tweet about GS2 overclocked to 1.2ghz was also true.

if i were to guess what samsung whould put out in the nex version it would be the best tech that can be put into a phone and these specs are about what would be what i would exspect. The only thing is tegra 3 is the only known 4 core processore and i would exspect that samsung would use there own chip for this as well as i would hope cause they have proven to be the best amd fastest chips in the duel core market. The rumer i know of though is samsung is putting out better duel core chips that they clame can compete with the early 4 core chips. Either way i hope they iuse other materal than plastic for a change.

Seems odd, they have better dual core chips that outcompete early quad 4 chips. Yet, they have yet to figure out how to make a dual core Exynos work on "true" LTE. I prayed the would get it together for stateside (non gsm) carriers. Instead, they shelved it & threw in the inferior chips in SGSII variants. I loved the Exynos performance but I lost some respect b/c of the hype Sammy built up for it.

+1^
As a Big Red subscriber, I'll feel blessed if they release it before 12/31/12. Knowing full well that would be miraculous.

give it to me baby.. uh huh.. uh huh! :)

now it just needs to hit the US by summer.. NOT CHRISTMAS :)

I dont know why the quad core part would be unbelievable. The T3 has been out for like 2 months already. To assume that Samsung wouldnt have an answer ready within 7 months is unbelievable. Hopefully they have upped their production so we see the quad exynos in multiple phone lines this time.
POWER.. UUUNLIMITED POOOWER! :)

id be surprised if they didnt make it compatible with every radio combination this time to stave off the BS that was the hercules/skyrocket incident.

I just hope the GSIII is available for sale in the U.S. quicker than the GSII was.

Great phone (Thumbup).

In the US markets, it's the year of the cam. Dual core chips.aren't even being utilized to full effect until ICS is released to the masses. Right now the duals are just handling overflow, not optimized performance duties. All early quads I've seen aren't exactly blowing dual benchmarks out of the water, yet.
They'll be nice options but as it stands now, it's just.overkill in many ways.

uh no.. its not over kill
dual core optimization is automatic quad core optimization. no quad core has been announced without ics in tow. and even if you never use the "full power" of a quad core (your loss :) ), quad cores give better battery life than dual cores.. and most definitely more than single cores.

Your jumping the gun a bit, forget quads exist for a sec. My point is that no one who isn't running vanilla ICS, in one form or another, has not experienced the full potential of dual core chipsets. People who have duals, running GB, think there phone is already much smoother & quicker than previous phones they've used. Dual core processing is not native in GB. So it goes w/out saying, they will only be happier when they discover the multitasking improvements that come w/ ICS. Especially, when a phone has dual chips clocked to 1.2ghz & up. A relatively stable S3, oc'd to 1.8 is unapologetically fast. Quad cores have yet to be finely optomized for use. When they do, w/ stable processing, it has potential to blow peoples minds.

actually they have. that was my first sentence

its called "dual core optimized" by laymens. its technically "multi core optimized". once it can thread 2, it can thread 4 and all the rest as well.
