Samsung Galaxy S III design finalized, claims tipster

Samsung Galaxy S III design finalized, claims tipster
Without a doubt, the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy S II smartphones were pretty cool from many aspects when they were announced. However, that both otherwise high-end devices were made out of plastic was somewhat disappointing. Thankfully, the Samsung Galaxy S III might set a new standard as the smartphone will sport a ceramic body, if rumors are to be believed. Furthermore, Eldar Murtazin now claims that the design of the Samsung Galaxy S III has been finalized, suggesting that production of the device is ready to kick off.

But the ceramic casing is expected to be only one of the device's several premium features. Rumors claim that the smartphone will be only 7 millimeters thick, yet packed with processing power delivered by a quad-core processor. The display on the Galaxy S III is rumored to be 4.8 inches in diagonal and will most likely sport HD resolution.

No wonder that carriers are already very interested in offering the Samsung Galaxy S III. According to Murtazin, a record number of Galaxy S III units have already been reserved by carriers and retailers, which makes it the most pre-ordered Galaxy smartphone to date. Last but not least, Eldar reassures us that the smartphone should be out by June of this year. Now who is getting one?

I think your comment about Americans having this type of sentiment is offensive and stereotypical! Please refrain from such generalizations!

Sprint has been the first to release each of the Galaxy phones. I don't see the SIII being any different.

I see 20 billion reasons why Sprint might not be the first to offer this phone.

Name 5 then, or even 2

I do understand your logic, but considering that that 20 billion is based on a 4 year deal that isn't even supposed to become profitable for Sprint until around the end of that 3rd year and beginning of the 4th year, Sprint will have to grab the SIII to make up for the initial loss. Not to mention, with the SIII and the I5 both being available in the 4th quarter...paired with the Unlimited Data that Sprint CANNOT afford to get rid of.......Sprint stands to make a killing!

Phone Arena should provide a link which shows in detail the track record of every "insider" who throws out an early-game rumor. Almost like a Win-Loss record of each reporter so their credibility would really be on the line each time they throw out their information. If anything it would dispel a bit of this hype that these Eastern European & Taiwanese outlets try to achieve. Fight the power!

Do you really have to even ask that? Let me answer you with a blatant YES. It said quad-core... ceramic casing... HD screen. Already better than the dual-core, plastic Galaxy Note. Remember this is the flag-ship for Samsung. I highly doubt that the Galaxy Note will even stand a chance against the Samsung Galaxy S III.

I "WANT" a dual core A15 Exynos 5250. Everyone can brag about quad cores, but in reality a good SoC design is much more important than number of cores.

chances are that it wont have one and will have a quad core 42xx. the 5xxx are not exactly ready for production and very likley wont be by the time they launch the s3

Quad core in a slim case doesn't leave much room for a big battery (less battery life) .. note is big in size because of 5.3'' screen and has 2500mAh battery with a 1.4Ghz Duel core being one of the fastest to date in smartphone out at the moment ...Faster is not always better these are only mobile phones that only need so much power ... Plastic takes more of an impacted if dropped rather than ceramic casing... Also Note is one of the first with a 5.3" HD Super Amoled screen

your logic is off. the quad core is actually smaller than the dual core exynos in the Note/SGS2. Its more powerful and also 50% more battery efficient since its on a smaller die. It also has a stronger GPU. :)

Sgs2/Note don't have the same bro .. All of this is roumers till Samsung releases it.

I would only get the Samsung Galaxy Note, if it had the Samsung Exynos dual-core in it. I will pass if it has the Qualcomm S3 in it. Now if it had a Qualcomm S4 Krait dual-core then I would be all over it.

blah, crapdragon! exynos quadcore is going to be out at nearly the same time as a crapdragon S4 dual core since theyve been delayed. Looks like qualcom failed again.
