A 13MP camera, 7mm thin body, an Exynos quad-core and a summer release – this is what you need to know about the Galaxy S III.
Samsung is undeniably an alpha gadget maker, and its totem of power is the Galaxy S II. After winning a flurry of awards, selling over 30 million smartphones and leaving consumers dreamy eyed and drooling over its dazzling Super AMOLED screen, it’s no wonder the next iteration – the Galaxy S III – is a highly hyped release.
Below is a recap of everything we know so far. (Bear in mind that none of these rumours have been confirmed or denied by Samsung -- but they do make for some interesting reading.)
Samsung Galaxy S III – what we expect right now
So far rumours have pointed towards a 4.6in Super AMOLED Plus display on the Exynos quad-core, 2GB RAM and 16MP camera filled 7mm thin mobile. A winter release is likely with Samsung skipping an MWC reveal in favour of an unveiling nearer the Galaxy S III’s actual release date.

It may also be just 7mm thick, making it one of the thinnest handsets in the world.
