If the image is real, the new S III is taller and narrower than the S II, and will have a white version. According to the tipster, the upcoming Samsung flagship measures 131 x 64 x 8 mm, and weighs 125 grams. Apparently, other specs include: 4.7 inch Super AMOLED Plus display with 1280 x 720 pixels (no full HD screen after all?), HSPA 42Mbps, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI port, 12MP rear camera with 1080p video recording at 60fps, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 1.5Ghz quad-core processor, 32GB of internal memory, and a 1,750 mAh battery. The S III will obviously run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Recent rumors had it that the new Galaxy would be released in May. However, today Samsung China’s president has reportedly declared that the company is considering moving the launch from May to April, in order to “increase sales.” That obviously makes sense, but it all depends on whether or not Samsung will be able to have the S III ready for primetime until next month. We’ll find out soon.
