The Samsung Galaxy S III is going to be the next flagship Android smartphone. A new report reveals that Samsung Galaxy S III release date will be in May, while the company will tout it’s creation as the thinnest quadcore processor powered smartphone in the world.
Samsung has already released a statement regarding release event of Galaxy S III. The successor to Galaxy S II will be announced at an event that the Korean manufacturer itself will organize in the first half of 2012, presumably in May. The company has decided that they are not going to make an announcement at Mobile World Congress, where they announced Galaxy S II last year. However they will be announcing other new Android based devices at Mobile World Congress 2012.
ETNews of Korea has received several tips regarding Samsung’s upcoming flagship Android smartphone. It is rumoured that this device is going to be incredibly thin, measuring in at 7mm. Since it is going to be powered by a quadcore processor, Galaxy S III will then become the world’s thinnest quadcore smartphone, until some other manufacturer trumps Samsung. The company had also advertised Samsung Galaxy S II at the time of it’s release as the world’s slimmest dual-core smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy S III is also reportedly going to house an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a 2 megapixel camera on the front. It is going to run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which happens to be the latest and the greatest update to Google’s Android platform. Detailed specifications are yet to be revealed.
Touting a device as the world’s thinnest quadcore smartphone may sound interesting, but it does raises some serious concerns. Will the company compromise battery life just to achieve this level of thinness? We know for a fact that users would prefer having better battery life instead of a super-thin smartphone. Samsung really knows how to develop it’s flagship Android smartphone, but let’s just hope that they don’t over-do it.
