According to the Korea Times, Samsung is planning to release another version of the hotly anticipated Galaxy S3. This other version will sport a dual-core Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon processor.
Previously, Samsung confirmed that its next flagship will sport its own Exynos 4 Quad, which is a quad-core powerhouse with each core clocked at over 1.4 GHz. So why would Samsung launch another version of the S2’s successor sporting a dual-core Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon?
According to the newspaper, the Korean firm would like to ensure that the S3 is optimized for all markets around the world. Since Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad does not currently support 4G, Samsung is said to replace the 4 Quad with the S4, which does support LTE networks.
The One X sports the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip, but the HTC One XL makes use of Qualcomm’s processor in the US to optimize the handset for LTE networks. Given this fact, it would make senses for Samsung to do the same.
Of course, take this information with a pinch of salt since Samsung is yet to confirm if it is to launch a dual-core variant of its next flagship the Galaxy S3. You never know. Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad may support LTE Networks once the S2’s successor is officially launched.
Do you think Samsung will launch a dual-core version of the Galaxy S3 for markets that use LTE networks? Give us your thoughts.
According to Maeil Business, a Korean website, Samsung will be unveiling its S-Cloud service on the 3rd of May. This new service will launch alongside a new handset under the Galaxy series, which is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S3.
What is S-Cloud? This new service is essentially Samsung’s version of Apple’s iCloud. Apple’s iCloud was launched alongside the iPhone 4S in October of 2011. Samsung’s S-Cloud is expected to come with a number of new features. It is also expected to be offered at a lower price compared to iCloud.
The Verge says, “It is also expected to ship with access to popular TV shows, movies, and music with free and paid content that will be available across a range of Samsung devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones.”
According to reports, Samsung’s new service will offer “more than 5 GB” of online storage. However, nothing was mentioned on how the Korean tech giant plans to set the price on higher storage. We’re hoping that Samsung sets the price of its cloud storing service cheaper than iCloud.
Maeil Business also claims that Samsung and Microsoft have partnered up, ensuring S-Cloud is available around the world.
Of course, there’s no way to confirm if these reports are true or not since Samsung is yet to announce anything official. We’ll just have to wait until the 3rd of May to confirm if S-Cloud exists or not.
According to a new report, the Korean tech giant Samsung may have sent units of the hotly anticipated Galaxy S3 disguised as something else to networks for testing. The prototypes have been sent in fake cases to keep their future flagship from onlookers eager to get their first glimpse of the superphone ahead of launch.
The new comes to us via ET News. If the report is true, this would mean that Samsung has taken a page out of Apple’s book, which involves disguising future devices as current models to prevent leaks.
As of February of this year, Samsung confirmed that it has sold 20 million units of the S2 since its release in April of 2011, making it the most popular Android smartphone in the market. According to recent reports, networks have pre-ordered the superphone amounting to ten million. If this is the case, this would mean that the S3 will be on its way to smashing the Galaxy S2’s sales record.
Specs-wise, the S3 is said to sport a 4.65 inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display, a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a quad-core processor under the hood. Although Samsung has been tight-lipped about their next flagship, it’s a dead cert the superphone will run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
