Many have wondered what Samsung would need to do to improve on their flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S II. For months now there have been rumored specifications and features of the next model, with some reportedly fake. Now it seems that Samsung may have teased the Galaxy S III at last week’s CES 2012 event.
The company has kicked started the rumor mill after releasing a video that showcased the ‘Best of CES 2012’. It is being suggested that the new Galaxy S III will make its debut at next month’s Mobile World Congress, and according to T3.com may have already made a fleeting appearance.
Around seven minutes into the video a smartphone appears that shows off Samsungs wireless remote features for the company’s new digital cameras. The device in question appears to have a similar shape to the S II, but has an oversized screen with a minimalist bezel, which has led many to believe it could be the first sighting of the Galaxy S III.
It has been rumored the new device will come running a 2GHz dual-core processor with 2GB of RAM. The display is believed to follow the trend of large screens with a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD screen. It is thought the camera will have a twelve megapixel sensor and capable of 1080p full HD video capture.
There has been some reports suggesting the S III will be called the Galaxy S 3D that will have a 3D display, but it is doubtful if Samsung will go down this route as it is felt that many consumers are not interested in 3D technology on a smartphone.
Have a look at the video below and the handset makes an appearance just after seven minutes. Do you think the device is the Galaxy S3 or just a mockup unit?
