Samsung-Galaxy-S-II-S-III

The Samsung Galaxy S II is already one of the better Android smartphones currently available and it is no surprise that Samsung wants to release a newer version of the phone equipped with the latest hardware.  The latest rumors suggest Samsung is expected to introduce the Galaxy S III during Mobile World Congress 2012, which is an appropriate place to announce a phone of this magnitude.

ETNews is a Korean magazine with complete information on Samsung’s plans for the Galaxy S III.  In terms of processor type, it is expected to feature a quad-core Exynos processor, which would definitely be a big upgrade over the 1.2 or 1.5GHz dual-core found in its phones today.  Other specs include 2GB of RAM, 720p Super AMOLED Plus display, Android 4.0, LTE, and a potential 12MP camera.

In case those specs aren’t enough to persuade you to purchase a Galaxy S III, Samsung is working hard to incorporate 3D technology in the phone to make it even more enticing.  The 3D functionality would be worked into its display, video and photo capture, but also integration with a 3D television.

Of course, we’re going to have to wait until MWC 2012 in late February before we know for sure whether Samsung is going to announce its new flagship Android smartphone or not.
