With the coming Galaxy S3 phone to the US, we have been hearing about benefits which were not confirmed when the phone was announced on May 3rd. A very specific one which has recently been confirmed is for 2 GB of RAM on the phone. This is an increase in the current International version which contains 1 GB of RAM. It appears that 4G LTE enabled phones will be receiving this boost and is reportedly going to improve battery life because of the better performance of the memory. This is great information for those in the US and Canada who will be purchasing the phones. But there are so many other items which have not been talked about much and one particular one has to do with the screen on the Galaxy S3.
This one item contained in the Galaxy S3 which has not seen much reporting is the Gorilla Glass 2. If you remember back to the time leading up to the launch of the Galaxy Nexus and all the talk about the missing Gorilla Glass, it raised a lot of talk about the value of Gorilla Glass. Now we are back again and there has been almost no talk of the value of Gorilla Glass 2 on the phone. Last year, everyone was talking up just how great and necessary Gorilla Glass actually was. Now we are not hearing much of anything as to the value the latest version from Corning brings to the Galaxy S3. But, this is now changing and we are trying to bring attention to this great feature on the phone.
Corning has come out with a Press Release this week talking about Gorilla Glass 2 and the Galaxy S3. In this release, there are a number of things in it, but the one that pops out is that Gorilla Glass 2 is 20% thinner which provides more information as to how Samsung was able to shrink the thickness of the phone.
Corning Gorilla Glass 2 enables up to a 20 percent reduction in glass thickness, while maintaining the industry-leading scratch and damage resistance that consumers demand.
With this, the Galaxy S3 has another first with the Gorilla Glass 2 and the greatly improved scratch resistance. It seems that the great things for this smart phone continue to leak out and are continuing to be revealed as we approach the release date here in the US. That is currently expected to be on June 20th and when it arrives, we can expect to see a lot of interest in the Galaxy S3.
