The Galaxy SII was a really popular phone and actually won the phone of the year award at Mobile World Congress 2012. Unlike the SII’s announcement, which took place at MWC last year, the Galaxy SIII will NOT be announced at this year’s MWC event, instead, it will be announced and shown sometime later this month, according to ZDNET Korea. They also claim that the phone will be launched in April, and if previous rumors are true, the SIII should be launched by 50 carriers worldwide simultaneously.
Samsung didn’t announce the phone at MWC because they wanted its worldwide launch to be right after the announcement. If you remember, last year, US got the Galaxy SII several months after its launch, and obviously Samsung is trying to prevent it from happening again.
In-case you need a refresher on the rumored specs, here they are:
> 4.8″ Super AMOLED HD Plus display – perhaps up to 1080p
>Quad-Core Exynos 4412 processor with ARM Mali-400 GPU
>8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front-facing camera
>4G LTE support
This is obviously an amazing phone, but I’d rather have the HTC One X, due to its Tegra 3 chip. What about you?
