Samsung Galaxy S III: 2012 release date rumors, amazing specs

By Posted 20 Sep 2011, 14:02

The Samsung Galaxy S II is only still rolling out to a number of carriers in the US, but now we have some incredible specs to share with you for the potential successor, the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Alleged information has trickled out from a forum user who has had direct information passed on to him from a Samsung representative on not only the Samsung Galaxy S III, but Ice Cream Sandwich and the rumored Nexus Prime handset as well which we’ll talk about later.

For now we want to focus on the exciting spec details that were disclosed for the third Galaxy S handset and as you may have guessed – they are nothing short of mind-blowing.

Potential specs for the Samsung Galaxy S III include a staggering 2.0Ghz quad-core processor, and a mouthwatering 4.65-inch ‘Super AMOLED III’ display which will apparently be capable of a resolution of 1280×1024 and 352ppi, according to Phonedog.

Other specs listed include a 10 megapixel camera, 1.5GB of RAM, 1080p recording at 60fps, 32GB of internal storage, a 2,250MaH battery (we love the sound of this!) and none other than TouchWiz 5.0 user interface. While you take a minute to catch your breath, let us tell you that this handset is set for a release in the middle of 2012 according to the Samsung rep. Although not mentioned, we’re also guessing that this will be an Ice Cream Sandwich handset as well, making the overall hardware specs truly next-gen and a handset that consumers would die-for.

Obviously since this is not official, we shouldn’t get our hopes up on this but considering that the Galaxy S III is pretty much inevitable in the near future anyway, it could be an early hint on what it may be able to handle as we move into 2012.

How impressed are you with these hardware specs? Would you drop all other smartphones to own a Samsung Galaxy S III? – We certainly would! Give us your thoughts on these amazing features folks.

    Will it have NFC and global use? Those are the 2 missing factors as to why I haven’t gotten the Galaxy S II yet. Any word?

    Well, from my experience with Sammy I can’t wait to see this on shelves…

    Just to add a note to “Singersorel” in terms of NFC this is the way forward and I would be surprised not to see it in this Monster :) 

    For me I would love Samsung to use one thing in this handset, the same or similar amp chip which he used in SGS1 as the chip in SGS2 isn’t that great coz all of the restriction on the volume… it will be a topic of next year if it turns to be as slim(slimmer) as the SGS2..

    I can’t emphasize enough how much would love to get hold of this Monster.
