You’d probably rather not hear about it, but some lucky fella has apparently already gotten their mitts on the specs on board Samsung’s hitherto unannounced Galaxy S threequel.
According to a source abreast of developments known to GSMArena, the Galaxy S3 will be reportedly home to a 2.0GHz quad core processor that is nothing short of ground-breaking, with 1.5GB of RAM and a 10-megapixel camera capable of shooting clips at 1080p HD at a blazing 60 frames per second.
This will be crowned by a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display (we’re assuming it’s the same HD variety as the one rumoured for the Nexus Prime), packing a resolution of 1280x1024, the highest pixel density on a smartphone screen of any size. More interestingly, this will boast a 5:4 aspect ratio, the reason for which is as yet unknown.
And all this will be crammed into a 9mm thick casing, housing an impressive 2,250mAh battery to supply the extra juice required by the new processor. There’ll also be a Near Field Communications (NFC) on board and all the usual extras you can expect from a top-of-the-line smartphone.
Adding credence to the mooted features, industry analyst Eldar Murtazin tweeted that they are ‘all real’. Unfortunately, there’s no word as to when we can expect this technological marvel to grace our shores, but with the S2 still selling like hotcakes and Samsung’s ongoing legal tug-of-war with Apple, it’s unlikely to land before next year.
UPDATE: Image of what is being claimed to be an 'assembly' unit of the Galaxy S3 has emerged. However, it's easily noticeable the phone packs an eight megapixel camera, not ten, so take this with a healthy pinch of salt. Image courtesy of PointGPhone.
