Speculation starts on Samsung Galaxy S III specs

First, under the hood will be a Samsung developed 2.0GHz quad-core CPU with 1.5GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory and a microSD slot aboard. The screen will be 4.65 inches of Super AMOLED III delight. Super AMOLED III, according to the tipster, is being developed specifically for this model. The resolution of the screen will be 1024 x 1280 giving the phone a 352ppi, well above the Apple iPhone 4's current Retina display giving the Samsung Galaxy S III the highest ppi reading on a handset to date.
The source adds that the phone will have Android 4.0 installed (Ice Cream Sandwich), TouchWiz 5 which Google is working on with Samsung, will be running on top of Android but will only play a small role on the phone's UI, to allow Samsung to update it faster than it has previous models. The camera on back will be 10MP with the ability to capture video at 1080p at 60 fps. And if you're worried about how the battery could last with all of this power, the unit will have a 2250mAh battery out of the box. While the source says that the specs are subject to change, the Samsung Galaxy S III will be the Korean manufacturer's next flagship model and a simultaneous release is planned for the middle of next year. This dovetails perfectly with a story we reported to you a few months ago that quoted Samsung's J.K. Shin as calling for a launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III by the first half of 2012. No pricing information was discussed, according to the source. The device is 9mm thick, according to the tipster who again, has seen images of the phone. It is metal and glass with a nice shiny finish to it.
Whew! We got tired just typing about the specs. If the state of the smartphone industry resembles anything like this next year, we can hardly wait for the ball to drop in Times Square.

I hope your dream comes true about the specs on the Galaxy S III! LOL

Hopefully the GSIII is available in the U.S. before 2012 is almost over with.... Having to wait almost 6 months from when the GSII was selling in Korea to when it starts to sell in the U.S. was kind of sucky and helped me decide to go with the EVO 3D.

As Apple goes down the dominance of the western world will go down. East Asian companies and their markets will be the largest in the world. South Korean companies like Samsung, LG etc., will make their own operating systems soon and will also overtake this market. Other top companies from Taiwan -TSMC, HTC, China -ZTE, Huawei , Japan - sony etc. will see a rise as Western companies like Nokia, RIM go down. Well all of this depends on the products they launch, the market conditions and most importantly; peoples' response. Not just business, standard of living, country's economy will change accordingly. RIM has also reported a drop in earnings. Western world is going down.

I'm getting the droid prime and then I'm done with this site for 2 years! Articles like this are the reason why I have been sitting on an update for 6 months! That is just crazy

The thing is, these phones don't even get full support day 1 though! Why are you invested in owning them right away? Very little right now makes use of the Galaxy S2's power outside of a few features within the OS. Older iDevices were supported for a few years before developers started to seriously remove support for them. Only a handful of titles wouldn't work with an iPhone 3Gs or 3G. It's nice to have the best phone every year, but hardly necessary. 2-3 years between upgrades is perfectly fine.

no, its not a fact. thats just fanboy stupidity. android blows iOS out of the water with updates. Google releases new features and bug fixes around the clock. Its the manufacturers and carriers that slow down the process. iOS releases 1 major update yearly and a few minor bug fixes immediately after an update. iOS can not keep up with android.. period.

i think he was talking about fragmentation which IS a real disadvantage Google has with Android currently. naturally Apple is better with their device support being that they're the supplier of the devices that run their OS but another thing that must be considered is that manufacturers of Android products don't even get to use the new versions of the Android OS until Google makes the SDK available to everybody unless they're making it's Nexus and i don't think even they can use it for any device but the Nexus they're building so to be fair in the comparison between how different Google is versus Apple in supporting their devices then the comparison should be made with a Nexus and of course an iPhone which Apple still comes out on top with their support for legacy devices right from the start but Google isn't far behind which the longest i remember it taking to update a Nexus is the Nexus One with Gingerbread and i think that took a couple of weeks and that was OTA.

Im waiting on the SamHTCsung iLG Droid Super Duper. Its going to have a microwave, a 13.0 Ghz Octo-core Processor, a 12 GigaTrigapixel Camera. A Super Natural Organic Vegetarian LED Screen with A resolution so sharp its like a window into heaven. It runs on LTE-MAX 7G.....It comes with its own network and towers and It Runs F$!%@ Your Mom OS. Supposedly it is the best thing ever created and god is a little jealous about how nice it came out. I hear it can morph into anything you can think of so you never ever need to buy another phone, car TV or even food again
