Rumors for the Samsung Galaxy S3 are growing faster than ever and the latest ones seem to rival the rumors which we used to hear about the Apple iPhone. The latest one is from Korea’s Electronic Times News who is reporting that the coming Samsung Galaxy S3 will arrive some time in May based on rumors which they are passing on from the usual unnamed sources. Along with the arrival date, they are saying that the coming Galaxy S model will only be 7mm in thickness, making it one of the thinnest phones to be on the market. If that is an accurate rumor, it will be another great selling point for the Galaxy S3. This is another of the growing rumors about a phone which is still an unknown to us and has yet to be presented to everyone. With this, we can expect the rumors to continue to be released for the next few months.
Further information from the Electronic Times News has this being a quad core processor, which is something that is to be expected as we grow closer to the middle of the year. More and more smart phones are going to include the much faster processor to go along with the LTE networks. As we reported yesterday, the LTE chips are going to finally be integrated into the board. They are currently an add on and take far more energy to power them as a result, so being an integrated chip is going to cut down on the battery power necessary which is a good thing. We can also expect them to perform at a higher rate as well.
We can assume that it will come with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and with an 8 megapixel camera as a minimum. In a few more months, that could be even higher with the delay in making the announcement about the new Galaxy S3. The one item which has not been rumored is the battery and if this phone is going to be 7mm in thickness, it raises concerns about exactly how big the battery is going to be. With a quad core processor running on an LTE wireless network, the idea of getting an all day usage before hooking it up to a charger is something that more and more people are looking for. We can hope that Samsung is working on this very problem and will be announcing a larger battery or a new more efficient battery to power this LTE smart phone.
For now, we can expect to hear more rumors in the coming days.
