Less than a couple of weeks prior to Samsung's introduction of its upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S3 has been seen on an Amazon site in Germany. According to the listing, the device has a Super AMOLED touchscreen of 4.7 inches, a 12 MP camera with LED flash, autofocus and face detection and the latest Android ICS operating system. The listing also describes the device as having an internal memory of 16 GB which can be expanded up to 32 GB.
Before users get too excited about those features, it should also be noted that Jared Newman of PCWorld also reported recently that a video of what may possibly be the Galaxy S3 may have appeared in Tinhte, a notorious website known for revealing handsets that have not yet been announced. The Vietnamese site describes the Galaxy S3 as having a quad core processor of 1.4 GHz, a display screen of 4.6 inches with a resolution of 1184x720, a RAM of 1 GB, a camera of 8 MP, storage of 16 GB which can be expanded through a microSD card, a battery of 2050 mAH and capabilities for NFC technology.
Moreover, similar to the Galaxy Nexus, the video presented the phone utilizing software navigation rather than dedicated hardware buttons, a feature that attracted users of the Galaxy Nexus because of its slick appearance and feeling.
The Amazon listing does not come with a photo of the Samsung Galaxy S3. Furthermore, it is categorized under the category of Mobile phones without contract and is priced at €599 or roughly around $788. All these news about the Galaxy S3 shows the obvious anticipation for the handset. As a result, speculations surrounding the device are expected to continue until it is finally unveiled in a London event on the third of May.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is anticipated to top the 30 million units sales of the Galaxy S and S2. Although the challenge seem very big for the S3, Samsung has already made a good record of bringing in some impressive devices in the market that is why many believe that the S3 can hit the challenge it is set to take.
