While we are waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S3 to finally be announced and available for sale, there have been comparisons between other phones. But, the Galaxy S3 has not even been officially announced and yet those comparisons go on. Much of them have been against existing phones which are already on the market. But now, there is a coming phone from LG which is looking as though it will be a direct competitor to the Galaxy S3. This information is coming from the DDaily site from Korea where they are revealing possible specifications for LG’s coming mobile device which could be a direct competitor to the Galaxy S3. While there is some substance to this latest rumor, there is nothing guaranteed in terms of specifications or possible dates. That is the case with all of the rumors which have been going around. That is especially true of the Galaxy S.
There seems to be comparisons between the Galaxy S3 and the LG D1L as though they are direct competitors in the market by various reports. Samsung has see fantastic success for the S2 while LG has not had the same level of sales. But given the rumored specifications, that situation might change. At the moment, the D1L is to come with a 1.5 Ghz dual core processor as compared to the rumored quad core processor on the S3. These are both rumored, so there is nothing final about the information which is listed here. It is interesting that the D1L is rumored to be arriving in May which is the same time frame as the Galaxy S3 presenting the idea of direct competition. Screen sizes are rumored to be very similar with the D1L at 4.7 inches and the Galaxy S3 at 4,8 inches. Again, there are rumors and nothing is set until the official announcement from the companies.
Though the actual name has not been determined, the D1L is what it is currently known as. The same may apply to the Galaxy S3 as there have been rumors that Samsung might be changing the name.
Rumors for the D1L have it being delivered with Ice Cream Sandwich from the start unlike so many other devices currently coming out. With the recent problems being experienced by Samsung with respect to Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades, this may be the one item which could make a difference for LG. If Samsung is not able to deliver on Ice Cream Sandwich for the launch of the Galaxy S3, it is going to be a big negative for the coming Samsung mobile device.
We can expect to be hearing a growing number of rumors and leaked information over the next month as things get closer to the official announcements for each of them.
