Samsung is set to launch its flagship smartphone Galaxy S3 on 3 May in London. The Korean giant has never said anything clearly about its upcoming product. Undoubtedly, Samsung will unveil its new smartphone which will possess a new quad-core processor. But tech fans are not sure whether the device will be called Galaxy S3 or Next Galaxy or GT-I9300. Its name, features and cost are all up in the air.
The company remains tight-lipped about Galaxy S3's features. Rumours about its new product or the anticipated features are doing the rounds on the internet. Tech enthusiasts can expect striking features from Samsung's latest smartphone since it has always succeeded in surprising by bringing out unique featured products.
Check out what we expect to see in the Galaxy S3:
Plenty of rumours point towards a 4.8in display screen, of course bigger than its predecessor, Galaxy S2. The Galaxy S2 boasts of Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen. It has already made a splash by letting users watch videos and browse on a 4.3in screen. This time, users expect a bigger and a brighter screen with a new type of Super AMOLED technology with a whopping resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels.
Tech fans are longing to have the killer Exynos 4 quad-core processor to be included in the Galaxy S3. Samsung has officially confirmed that its next smartphone will have Exynos quad-core processor. It makes sense to expect the Galaxy S3 which would be powered by a 1.4GHz Exynos 4 quad-core processor built on High-K Metal Gate low-processor technology. By incorporating the new processor, users could enjoy multicore processing which ensures enhanced performance as well as to play Full HD video on the user's device with multi-format codec (MFC). Additionally, it offers support to powerful 3D graphics and best image quality when the user takes pictures.
The Galaxy S3 could do wonders if it comes with a mouth-watering 12 megapixel rear-facing camera. No doubt, the amazing feature could deal a killer blow to rival smartphones. Samsung smartphones have had five megapixel and eight megapixels rear-facing cameras and the Galaxy S3 could entice users who are yearning to own a smartphone with a high-resolution camera.
Near Field Communication (NFC)
In today's tech world, NFC is the most probable feature in gadgets. The need for NFC is increasing, since the users prefer contactless mobile payments instantly. It can also be utilised to share files which include photos, videos, documents and contacts. Samsung has already introduced NFC in its Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus. We would love to see the Galaxy S3 enabled with NFC chip on board.
The Galaxy S3 is expected to run on the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Users could enjoy the full-fledged features of ICS which includes easy multi-tasking, new home screen folder, resizable widgets, new lock screen actions, improved text-input and spell checking and powerful web browsing.
Rumours are rife that the Galaxy S3 would come with a Li-Po 2250mAh standard battery. Its predecessor boasts of lithium ion 1650mAh battery. Perhaps, users always prefer a longer battery life over other features. The Korean giant has already announced that it will offer greater battery longevity in 2012 smartphones according to T3.
