Samsung Galaxy S III Photo And Specs Leaked Again, Quad-Core Exynos CPU Confirmed
Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2012 and the South Korea-based company is making the waiting more itchy as the haven’t confirmed or dismissed any rumor yet. The launch of the new Samsung Galaxy flagship is imminent and unofficial photos of the Galaxy S3 are leaking in the wild.
At Mobile World Congress 2012 we’ve noticed that the quad-core chipsets are the new standard in the mobile industry and Samsung is working hard to build their own quad-core chip. A piece of information coming from a Samsung official is confirming what everyone expected: the mobile maker is developing a proprietary quad-core chipset.
According to a Samsung official, quoted by The Korea Times, the new Samsung flagship which will replace Galaxy S2 will use a quad-core Exynos chipset, manufactured and developed by Asian smartphone manufacturer.
The decision is not surprising at all and the official said the company he works for chose to develop their own chipset in order to cut their dependence on Qualcomm products. Samsung placed Qualcomm chipsets inside many of their devices, which had “greater stability and suited easy upgrades.” But starting with the Samsung Galaxy S III, the South Korean company considers that their proprietary processors are powerful and mature enough to replace Qualcomm’s. Their long-term plan is to use Samsung technology into Samsung products.
The new Samsung Galaxy S III has a design reminiscent of its predecessor, Galaxy S II, but the bezel seems borrowed from HTC One X, writes SlashGear.
The details in the leaked picture suggest that the new Samsung Galaxy flagship will be launched in about two months. On the display of the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the picture above the date and location indicate a launch on March 22nd, in London. The debut of Samsung Galaxy S3 is expected to take place in England’s capital city at “Samsung Unpacked” event.
Except for the quad-core Exynos processor, the rest of Galaxy S3′s technical specifications are still a mystery, but according to the leaked photo, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone would be about 7mm thick and would feature an 8 megapixel camera.
Anyway, it’s wiser to wait until Samsung Galaxy S III will be officially introduced and see the South Korean flagship’s full list of specifications.
