Samsung Galaxy S III: Stock ICS feature could fend off iPhone 5

By Alan Ng - Mar 19, 2012

If you are looking forward to the inevitable unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone, you have probably been starved of the frequent rumors that seemed to be in the limelight a few weeks ago.

Now though, we’re pleased to say that the device has once again shown up in the wild and we now have a new image of the alleged device for you to gaze upon. The picture has appeared over on rumor hotspot Reddit, with even some new spec rumors accompanying the image to share with you as well.

Firstly, you can take a look at the picture in question on Reddit – does it look legit to you or not? There’s certainly plenty of feedback over at Reddit with many labeling this as another faked image, but considering that a lot of these typical ‘blurry’ leaks actually turn out to be legit, there’s no way to tell for sure.

As for the new information, the tipster that supplied the image has also chimed in with the latest lowdown regarding potential specs for the device. We see the usual suspects mentioned by way of that quad-core quad-core Exynos chip, a 4.7-inch HD display, a 12 megapixel rear camera and a 2200 mAh battery.

More importantly though, we have yet more whispers that the Samsung Galaxy S III will come packed with 2GB of RAM, which would obviously be a major breakthrough for both Samsung and consumers who have become used to seeing just 1GB of RAM on the majority of electronic devices on the market right now.

Samsung’s iPhone 5 killer? There is one little gem though that has the potential to steal the show ahead of that quad-core processor. The information supplied over at Reddit reveals that the Galaxy S III may come with a unique dual-launch facility which will enable owners to choose between a TouchWiz interface, or wait for it a completely stock version of Ice Cream Sandwich. Again, this is just a rumor at this point, but if it turns out to be true then Samsung will surely win over everyone who previously had a few gripes about TouchWiz – especially those who are planning to pick up the iPhone 5 if Samsung’s next flagship smartphone still relies on a customized interface.

We’re getting excited just thinking about it. Would the Samsung Galaxy S III be a day-one buy for you with stock Ice Cream Sandwich on board? Let us know your reaction to the latest whispers.

    Seems awesome so far. Battery could be a little bigger to compete with Maxx and Fighter.   Will it have an upgradable microsd unlike the galaxy nexus (a huge reason why I don’t own one now)?

  • Jesus christos…that thing is gorgeous.
