For the moment information about the features of the Samsung Galaxy S3 are based on reports that have emerged in recent weeks. The smartphone is the successor to the popular Samsung Galaxy S2, which was released last year. Together with the original Samsung Galaxy S, sales of the two versions of the smartphone have reached thirty million units.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 is a much-anticipated device that is expected to offer good competition to the iPhone of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). The reported launch event for the Samsung Galaxy S3 comes prior to the launch of the iPhone 5, which is also expected to happen before the end of the year.
Earlier reports have hinted that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 will feature a screen display similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus at 4.6 inches. The upcoming device is also expected to feature a quad-core microprocessor, 12MP camera, and 4G LTE connectivity. The upcoming device offering of Samsung is also expected to use the latest version of the Android OS, the Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0.
Some industry watchers have speculated at the possibility that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 will feature an S-Pen stylus similar to the one used on the Samsung Galaxy Note as hinted on the design of the invitation itself. The invitation shows paint-like blobs and a brushed metal effect which may hint at a metallic case instead of plastic for the Samsung Galaxy S3.
The upcoming event that will reportedly unveil the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be broadcast live through the official Facebook page of Samsung.
