Samsung reportedly to unveil Galaxy S III in February, debut new line of 3D devices


Posted Image


Korean electronics giant Samsung is reportedly set to launch the Galaxy S III, the successor to its popular
Galaxy S II Android smartphone, at Mobile World Congress in February, also debuting new 3D-capable
devices in the first quarter of 2012.

ETNews reports that Samsung will choose to introduce the latest in its Galaxy S line in Barcelona, almost
exactly a year after it launched the Galaxy S II, the world’s most successful Android smartphone to date.

The device is expected to feature new quad-core processing technology and may be outfitted with 3D
technology, as Samsung looks to differentiate its smartphones from Apple’s popular iPhone. With an MWC
launch, the Galaxy S III may go on sale in the second quarter.

3D photo and video recording capabilities may be coming to additional Samsung smartphones next year,
coming to a device referred to as the Galaxy S 3D — helping users deliver content to their 3D TVs. Again,
this device could be launched in the second quarter of 2012.

The report sits firmly in the rumour category but with the Korean smartphone vendor introducing the
Galaxy S II at the same event earlier this year, it shouldn’t be ruled out that the company would do the
same again.

We don’t as yet have any official specifications on the Samsung Galaxy S III, from what we heard before it


may either come with a quad core 1.5GHz processor or Samsung’s new dual core 2GHz Exynos 5250


processor, 2GB of RAM and a 4.65 inch HD display with a 1280 x 720 resolution similar to the Galaxy Nexus.

I'm getting a new phone about half way through 2012 so hopefully it turns out to be an amazing device like its predecessors :D

I hope they don't sacrifice the screen by making it 3D. I couldn't care less for 3D, especially on a phone. The S2 was a near perfect phone to me, so they should focus on improving that for the S3, not introducing gimmicks like 3D.

If it's anything like the 2, it will be an amazing phone. Can't wait to upgrade.

If they announce it in Feburary, then it won't come to US carriers until the end of the year.

Awesome, my current contract ends mid 2012 and I plan to hopefully get the Galaxy S3 (or worse case scenario the S2). Currently a HTC Desire owner and have to say I'm getting sick of the endless problems with it (read; constantly seeing the insufficient space warning everytime something updates etc).

Unfortunately the industry is dying for us to adopt 3D so they can charge extra for everything.
