Anyone heard anything about the Galaxy S3?
Well i am coming to that time where my mobile phone contract is about to come up for renewal. I have had my trusty HD2 for 2 years.
Read an article about the S3 for february 2012? Just wanted to know if anyone else has read or heard rumours about this.
I dont mind waiting a few months, Im just torn between the 4S and S2 and nexus prime and would be really gutted if the S3 came out in feb and i get the S2.
Or is there any new phones on the horizon for early 2012? arghhhhhh......

I was looking to get a HTC Desire S when someone buys my Blackberry off me.

All I know is the phone is going to be released in the 1st haf of next year (rumours say April- June) and the phone is going to be awesome!
- 4.5" super AMOLED screen
- quad core processor @ 1.5ghz
- graphical performance x5 better than S2 using Nvidia Tegra chip
- NFC and 4g
- Probably 12mp camera
- Rumoured 2gb RAM
and so on.
Samsung fixed the lag issues in the S2 (Mum has it and I have the S1) and that is a great phone. I don't think you would be disappointed if you got the S2 instead, well unless you want the latest and greatest like me

Yea i heard similar rumours so its looking quite appealing but i heard it was a 2ghz processor. But thats rumours for you.

That doesnít seem correct. Tegra 3 isnít x5 faster graphically then S2 is it? Surly it would have to be something like an PowerVR MP SGX chip of some sorts to hit those speeds.

No idea was just quoting something I read. It's all rumours so take that post with a pinch of salt.

Tegra 3 is around 2-3 times faster than Tegra 2 according to these benchmarks.

Of course having a quad core 1.6Ghz phone sounds awesome, but what's the battery power like? Unless I've missed something, battery technology hasn't had any major improvements lately (not in commercially viable products anyway) and I imagine that will chew through the battery in no time...

Some of the new devices come with an extra low powered core. The idea being to use the low powered core most of the time and only switch to dual/quad when needed. No idea if it works in practise.

Also, I thought most battery is used by powering the screen, and with the work that seems to be put into screen development perhaps that's where the big energy saving comes in?
Just a thought though, haven't seen anything like this anywhere.

True, the screen does use up the majority of power but I'd have thought a quad core processor would be pretty power hungry too.
