Everything We Know About the Samsung Galaxy S3


Despite all the legal battles it has had to face, Samsung has done very well for itself in the smartphone arena these last couple of years. The original Galaxy S platform was a hit and that continued with the Galaxy S II, the Galaxy Nexus, and the Galaxy Note. But what will the Samsung Galaxy S3 bring to the table? A heck of a lot, apparently.

First off, we’re looking at a launch window right around March of this year, though the exact date with each carrier will likely vary somewhat. The processor sounds like it could be the dual-core Exynos 5250. While it’s not quad core like Tegra 3, it does have a crazy clock speed of 2GHz, boasting enough grunt to power stereoscopic 3D on what will likely be a display in the Super AMOLED Plus HD family.

Given Samsung’s recent push toward bigger screens (the Galaxy Nexus has a 4.65-incher and the Note has a 5.3-incher), it’s safe to assume that the Galaxy S3 will be a little bigger too. I’m guessing it’ll be the same as the Galaxy Nexus, since it will likely launch with ICS too. The camera will probably get a notable bump too, possibly getting that 16MP unit that Samsung announced in October.

But these are all just rumors. What do you want to see in a Galaxy S3? Thinner? Brighter? How about some better battery life? Ice Cream Sandwich is a no brainer.
