Nigh-on two thirds of consumers are holding off on buying a new smartphone until the Samsung Galaxy S3 drops on May 30th, adding weight to speculation that it is on course to smash sales records.
Of 5,747 uSwitch Tech visitors polled, 63.16 per cent said they were waiting on Sammy’s 15-months-in-the-making 2012 flagship kit.
The survey result corroborates signs from elsewhere testifying to huge pent-up demand for the sequel to the 20 million-selling S2. Not least, reports that the phone has already racked up pre-orders of nine million from networks across the globe.
Unveiled earlier this month, the S3 features a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED screen that’s 22 per cent larger than the S2 and a gym-ready, mucho-macho quad-core 1.4GHz processor.
It’s also home to an eight-megapixel camera and a secondary 1.9-megapixel front-facing snapper. The handset’s real differentiator, however, is its revamped version of Samsung’s TouchWiz Android custom skin that adds Siri-style advanced voice commands and the Smart Stay intelligent camera feature.
