It seems fitting, with the new year knocking on the door, that we start talking about the next generation Galaxy S device. Now that we know the original Galaxy S won’t be getting an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, what’s better than looking to the future and what you may be able to buy sometime soon? That’s what we’re supposed to believe we are looking at right here, with these nice looking Galaxy S III renders.
Now, of course, there are some specifications tacked on for good measure, so let’s just get right to those, shall we? What we are looking at here is reportedly a 5-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280×720. The device is only 9mm thick. There’s a Samsung Exynos 4412 1.5GHz dual-core processor under the hood, and it will come in builds of either 32 or 64GB of built-in storage. You’ll find Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board, and Samsung will be nice enough to update TouchWiz to 5.0. There’s a 12MP rear-facing camera, and a 2MP front-facing shooter. It will also have a stylus much like that with the Galaxy Note.
The images and statistics come from Concept Phones, which apparently was sent in from a reader by the name of Ivan Ilchenko. The images were apparently caught from Samsung’s official (quotation marks aplenty here) page via a Russian social network. Yeah, it’s tricky. So, keep that in mind as you grab your salt shaker.
Oh, and one more thing: it will apparently dual-boot Samsung’s Bada OS. So, take that for what it’s worth.
And no, this isn’t the “real” Galaxy S III, it’s just a concept render. The story is a nice one, but this isn’t the device we’ll be seeing next year.
