We are living in a very fast moving technological developed smartphone era where all the major mobile manufacturers such as Samsung, Apple, Nokia, HTC, Sony and many more are trying their best to be the No.1 manufacturers around the world. Supported by giant names such as Microsoft & Google each advancing their Windows Phone OS and Android versions to catch up with the rest of the operating systems in the market. With Samsung being the No.1 mobile manufacturer in UK for 2011 and also being the No.1 for Android manufacturer in UK 2011, there is a big chance that Samsung Galaxy S3 would be the next big awaiting smartphone for the year 2012.
With Apple holding back the Apple iPhone 5 release date, released the Apple iPhone 4S instead making a big move to keep the excitement into the market. 2012 is looking to be the year of the big smartphone launch such as the Samsung Galaxy S3, Nokia Lumia 808, Apple iPhone 5, HTC One X and many more making it a battle field for manufacturers and a challenge for consumers to make a decision to buy their dream smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Release Date in UK?
Seeing all the top smartphones launch such as the Sony Xperia S and the HTC One X and HTC One S in March 2012, there leaves a room for some phone to be released in April and May 2012. There have been leaked updates about the Samsung Galaxy S3 to be released in 22nd May 2012 in UK, however this is not an official announcement by Samsung but it is predicted from various sources that the date might be a launching date for Samsung Galaxy S3.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Operating System To Be The Latest Android OS
Google has recently announced the release of the Android 4.0.3 code which is supposed to be the baseline of Ice Cream Sandwich code, having a successful running of Android OS, v2.3.4 (Gingerbread) on Galaxy S2, it will not be surprising for Samsung Galaxy S3 to have the latest Android OS, v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
Smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and HTC One X and S both are running the Ice Cream Sandwich versions with touch or their own looks and features, so since Samsung Galaxy S3 (Samsung GT-i9300) is not officially launched it is quite predicted the OS to be the latest Google Android OS. It is also predicted and shows from an update and images that the new samsung galaxy phone will have Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWiz overlay making the gadget to wait for your upgrade.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Processor
With Samsung Galaxy SII having Exynos chipset and Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 processor making it one of the fastest smartphone for 2011, so it can be predicted that to make the Samsung Galaxy S3 the mother of all smartphone it should be more advanced than the S2.
Since Samsung has officially revealed the new Exynos 4212 chipset with a dual-core ARM9 (which is reported to be 30% more efficient than the processor running in Galaxy S2) and also the Exynos 5250 with up-to 2GHz dual-core processor (mainly designed for maximum resolution used in tablets) could be used for the new Samsung Galaxy S3 processor. Since HTC One X are running on a quad-core processor, the next-gen Exynos 4412 chipset, a quad-core unit to run at 1.5GHz could also be a choice for the new samsung smartphone. Who knows what’s coming up?
Samsung Galaxy S3 Memory
One of the highly searched and wanted feature in a smartphone that makes the big difference in choosing the handset. As the trend is moving the bigger the size of the memory the more demand-able the phone becomes. Samsung Galaxy S2 had 16GB internal storage with 1GB RAM making to the top of the chart and become the No.1 smartphone in UK, so there is a huge expectation on the new Samsung Galaxy S3.
Nothing is officially declared about the memory specification about the new samsung galaxy, but to be the handset of the year 2012 it has to match with other manufacturers and may be more than expected.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Display
With a huge success rate and a profitable business with Galaxy S2, we believe Samsung will want to be again the biggest and the best Android 2012 flagship handset and break all records. It looks very challenging for Samsung as Apple is plotting it’s one of the largest launched to be made yet – The Apple iPhone 5.
Display in smartphones were not one of the features few years back, but now things have changed. With the demand for crystal clear movies, games, apps and even the browsing put the display spec to the top of the requirement list for a dream smartphone. We have seen Samsung Galaxy Note to have one of the largest display, but for Samsung Galaxy S3 to be the flagship handset it needs to meet the current market requirements and not to be a bulky handset like that of the Note.
According to an information leak BGR has reported that Samsung Galaxy S3 will have a 4.8″ widescreen, Full HD 1080 pixel resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio (Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors). This information is not officially released by Samsung but it rather a leak info and a display rumours.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Camera
One of the most important requirement factor to be the most wanted handset for 2012 and beyond. When we all think of a smartphone, we want a handset with the best camera spec in mind. We have seen the 5MP, 8MP and 12MP releases in some highly demanded handsets, will Samsung bring a bigger size or stick to something sensible unlike Nokia Lumia 808 with 41megapixel camera.
According to Gsmarena.com and a leaked report on Reddit, they suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will have a 12MP camera with flat into the back of the device having no bump as found on the old Galaxy S2, thus giving a smooth and elegant look.
Samsung Galaxy S3 or Samsung Galaxy S2?
Having a look at the above predicted spec for Samsung Galaxy S3 and knowing the current specifications and features of the old Galaxy S2, it looks like that if you are waiting for your dream smartphone then we can recommend to wait for the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy handset.
Having the latest Android OS Ice Cream Sandwich, Exynos chipset, Quad-core processor, 12MP Camera, 4.8″ widescreen, Full HD 1080 pixel resolution, atleast 16GB internal memory expendable up to 32GB with least 1GB RAM and predicted release date on the 22nd May could make Samsung Galaxy S3 a perfect dream handset for the year 2012.
