There would literally be hundreds of thousand people out there who are guilty of Googling Galaxy S III every single day and that goes to say volumes about the presale hysteria that Samsung’s mega device has been able to create. Galaxy S III, as per many, is rumoured to be Samsung’s most powerful phone to date. As per the company’s announcement, 3rd May is the day when Android fans will get to see all that Samsung has to reveal about the most sought after phone yet. And on that date, the wait of every Android fan will come to an end which includes me as well so, yay!
As you should already know, manufacturers do not like to kill the surprise by commenting or even hinting anything about the features their yet-to-be launched phone would offer but the rumour mill is spinning and it has already spun a web of rumours. Believe it or not, I Google for rumours as well and that too is something I do every single day. So there are all kinds of rumours about the specs of the new mega phone which sometimes are based on the guesses of experts and occasionally, they’re excerpts from the wish-list of hard core android fans.
As per the rumours, Galaxy S III would have:
Ice-cream Sandwich – that is the latest and the delicious most Android OS version, which comes with the sweet, sweet facial recognition unlock. With this OS, Galaxy S III will be the closet thing you’d have for a good, trusty compact personal computer.
4.8 Super AMOLED MIPI (C-Type) Screen – The sheer size of the screen (and the rest of the phone) dwarfs the rest of the so-called best performers offered in the market. Whoever said bigger is better was absolutely right.
1.5 GHz quad core CPU – There is nothing new about the quad cores. LG as well as a handful of other manufactures have produced quad core phones before but this time around, it’s a Samsung Galaxy S III we’re talking about and that per se, makes it all the more important. Whatever everybody else can do, Samsung can do it better for sure.
While the expected or the rumoured specs look good enough, my sole concern remains the much notorious battery problem of the androids. Actually, battery pretty much has been the issue of almost all smartphones (remember iPhone 4s’ legendary battery crappiness?) but Samsung’s got a way around that, ostensibly. The powerful lithium batteries (previously discussed in the Droidzilla post) could be the solution here.
I, much like everyone else, have great expectations from Samsung so I am just keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best while waiting for them to unveil the magic that is Galaxy S III.
