Processor and Memory
Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S3 smartphone, also known as the “iPhone killer”, is expected to include a quad-core processor. As I mentioned, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is believed to have a Samsung Exynos 4212 processor clocked at 1.8GHz. This processor is a 32nm chip mini with 50 percent greater graphics performance and 30 percent less power consumption than its previous chip, the Exynos 4410 which featured in the Samsung Galaxy S2. It is also claimed to be 5 times faster than its Mali-400 MP chip of its predecessor.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 will have multi-tasking feature, which will allow you to efficiently run multiple applications simultaneously. To enable easy multi-tasking process and playing games, it is rumored that the smartphone will come with 2GB RAM. It is likely to be the first smart phone to boast 2GB of RAM, and will come with a generous 32GB of storage.

Design and Display
One thing that many users on the Internet that talk about Samsung Galaxy phones is its display. The Samsung Galaxy S3 will sport a giant 4.6 inch screen, slightly bigger than its predecessor Galaxy S2, which has 4.3 inch screen. This would account to a 1280×720 screen resolution of the Galaxy S3. It is known that Samsung accidentally leaked that it would release the phone with the new flexible glass specifically – FOLED technology.
A creative design company based in Ukrainian drafted a concept design of the Samsung Galaxy S3, showing that the upcoming smartphone will be similar to Galaxy S2 in terms of looks and design. However, it is known that the home button has been replaced with a Samsung logo and slimmed down to make space for the larger screen.
Camera in the Samsung Galaxy S3
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is likely to sport a 12 megapixels rear camera, while the current GS2 boasts a 8 megapixels. It will have a 1/2.3-inch sensor, which is much bigger than the 1/3.2 inch CMOS chip found in several smartphone, including the Apple iPhone 4S.
However, some rumors indicate that Samsung is planning to launch the smartphone with a 16 megapixels camera. There are several smartphone that already have a 12 megapixels camera, including some Nokia phones. But if the rumor about GS3 featuring a 16 megapixels camera turns out true, then it would be a major successful stroke for Samsung.
Latest Android OS
Yes, the smartphone is expected to have the latest release of the Android OS – Ice Cream Sandwich, which has the following new features included:
– Face Unlock, a feature that allows users to unlock handsets using facial recognition software
– Better voice integration and continuous, real-time speech to text dictation
– Virtual buttons in the UI, in place of capacitive or physical buttons
– New tabbed web browser, allowing up to 16 tabs
