Eldar Murtazin says specs for the Samsung Galaxy S III will include quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM
Just a note to tell you that the picture that accompanies this story is just a concept rendering and is not an official representation of the Samsung Galaxy S III.

The Samsung Galaxy S III
is on a lot of minds right now. The successor to the wildly successful Samsung Galaxy S II is now expected to launch in April according to industry insider Eldar Murtazin. He also ran through a list of specs that he expects to see on the phone, like a quad-core Exynos processor with each of the cores clocked at 1.5GHz to 1.6GHz, a Super AMOLED 720p display, a 12-megapixel camera and possibly 2GB of RAM. The amount of RAM was something Murtazin has speculated on before, and in his latest foray of tweets he didn't confirm that, so we'd take this with a grain of salt. Murtazin is also looking for 4G LTE connectivity and Android 4.0 to be installed out of the box, which won't be a huge surprise. The device will allegedly be introduced at a special event following this month's MWC in Barcelona, Spain.

Samsung just announced the other day that the Samsung Galaxy S III would stay home during the trip to Barcelona for MWC. The Korean based manufacturer has said that it doesn't want a repeat of  last year when the gap between the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S II at MWC and its launch in the U.S. was seven long months. By waiting to display the phone at a special event, Samsung gets to control the timing of the announcement. And not that we could see this happening, but a presentation at MWC could conceivably get overshadowed by other announcements by other manufacturers.

They better have a better way of introducing it to the states faster cause the SGS2 is still in the limelight in the US and now SGS3 coming out i mean I'm all for it as long as an internatiol relase is made ASAP.

While I believe the SIII will be an amazing flagship phone. I definitely believe that the ASUS Padfone will have compartive specs, and with the ability to dock into tablet (not sit on outside of keyboard device like motorola did.. bad decision on their part), and in turn into the transformer's keyboard, makes it a very useful, and moneysaving, product.

Eldar Murtazin is a worthless troll. I noticed that years ago, and you PA guys should really know better than giving space to him. http://blog.gsmarena.com/this-is-not-the-galaxy-s-ii-plus-youre-looking-for/

Ever look back through the discontinued phones and see the specs on the "high end" phones of just 2 years ago? Basic flips are more powerful now. It is pure unreal....

I know it makes me wonder how all the specs can keep doubling yet the price doesn't. Its bound to catch up sometime.

Then this is a nice jump from 1Gb of ram to 2Gb of ram. Wonder if all high end phones will take this route or maybe go with 1.5Gb.

The RAM is nice. But, how many years are we from utilizing a quad core in a phone? Like at least 2? Boy, I bet ICS will sing on this, though, and I hope that means better battery life for all. If Sammy doesn't stay on top as the #1 phone producer in the world, it will not be for lack of trying....

In your case, I'd ask for better grammar and punctuation.

If the Galaxy Tab 2 does not have a quad core processor at MWC, than there is a possibility that the GS3 will not pack a quad core.

quad core will not always mean faster...the tegra 3 is using a9 quad where as i think samsung are planning to use exynos a15 dualcore 2ghz which is faster(not 100% sure but read it somewhere)...just dont think anyone should be upset if it is dualcore a15 and not the quad

gs3 will be 99.999999% my next phone i just cant see what will top this or make me decide against it.

I agree. For some reason I have a feeling it is not going to be a quad core. A beefed up dual core with out a doubt... Galaxy S II still on top IMO. No question either my phone will either be Galaxy S III or the Note.

Got the s2 UK variant and so far no phone has made me think that I need to ditch my s2 even after almost a year when in the android world phones are getting outdated on a weekly basis for the s2 too still be one of the best is incredible...sad s3 not going to be in mwc but I think that phone deserves the stage to itself,just can't see anyway of being dissapponted by the s3....lol starting to sound like a fanboy
