Galaxy S3 Specs and Release Date GT-I9300 Real or Not ?

Updated on January 30, 2012

Samsung Galaxy S3 Release Date & Specs

The release date and the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been hot news for a lot of fans of the Samsung Galaxy S1 and Samsung Galaxy S2 with the Galaxy S2 boasting of being the largest selling handset of all time which is no easy feat. But we finally have exclusive pics as well as the specs and official release date of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Smartphone. Even now seven months after its release the Samsung Galaxy S2 is still one of the best selling phones with people buying them for themselves or loved ones this xmas just gone. With the Galaxy S2's high specs, large screen and 8mp camera it was a popular handset for gadget lovers, general users and techies and is even responsible for converting hundreds of thousands of iphone users over to the ever growing, ever popular Google Android.

With a lot of news, untrue and some true details going around about the Samsung Galaxy S3 people have been left in the dark of what the real specs are and when the official release date is so we are going to reveal those details for you today, lets start by saying if you have read online that its been revealed from Samsung that the Galaxy SIII was going to be released in February or even mid 2012 then you wont be dissapointed as the release date has been confirmed as Q1 of 2012 which basically means the first quarter or first 3 months so we can expect to see this handset by march this not too long to wait for it now.

How will the Galaxy S2 compare to the Samsung Galaxy S3

If like me you have owned the Samsung Galaxy S1 and Galaxy S2 then you will probably be very eager to know how the new Galaxy SIII compares to the SII, you know it will be reasonably similar, you know it will be faster but what else right ? what reasons make it worth going out and buying the handset over your old phone. Well there are plenty of reasons i have stated below which should start getting you excited about this upcoming iphone killer.

Improvements over the Samsung Galaxy S2

Firstly the Galaxy S3 boasts of a Dual core 1.8ghz cpu, (not quad core as stated on some forums) which makes it faster than the Sensation XE dual core 1.5ghz processor which in most terms should be way more power than needed by any phone. Secondly the Galaxy S3 comes pre installed with Android 4.1 which is the latest version of Ice Cream Sandwich and with a 1.8ghz dual core processor it should run things very smoothly while multi tasking or otherwise. The Galaxy S3 also boasts of a rather impressive 2gb of internal memory to help scoot everything along quicker.

So even now you realise how much of an improvment the Galaxy S3 is over its younger brother your probably thinking to yourself, what else does it boast right ? well it also boasts of a super AMOLED 720p screen with a great sized 4.6" display so browing the web on this thing should be an absolute dream compared to other smartphones. The handset also has a rather impressive 12MP camera with Full HD 1080p video recording for taking great videos when you need it and last but not least Samsung claim that the phone is not only slimmer than the Galaxy S2 but also boasts of a superior battery life so lets hope unlike the iphone 4 this is true.

It has since been stated on some sources on the net that the spec of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is going to be quad core 1.5 ghz which to be fair wont be massivley different to a 1.8ghz dual core as always this is all speculation so watch this space for the latest news on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3.

The Samsung Galaxy S3D

A lot of people are talking about rumours of the Samsung Galaxy S3D or 3D model of the Samsung Galaxy S3 but at the moment this is speculation, its beleived that Samsung will also be releasing a 3D version of the same phone which included 3D screen that doesnt require 3D glasses which will allow the user to scroll through menus and apprently be able to watch 3D movies on there Samsung Galaxy S3D, wether this is true and what kind of affect this would have on the battery we dont know but i will keep you posted on any progress of this.

Will the Samsung Galaxy S3 be the best smartphone on the market when it comes out ? possibly and rather probably if the Samsung Galaxy S3's sales are anything to go off, assuming the phone is reletivley bug free and the handset is as good as the pictures then the Samsung Galaxy S3 has a great chance of retaking its thrown for the best smartphone out, with there being no dates for the iphone 5 it looks to have nothing rival it in regards to spec and power but it will be interesting to see what HTC come up with to rival this monster with more and more people turning to android over iphone because of the differences to software and it developing and evolving rather than Apple revaming apps and claiming to have invented it then its hardly suprising companies like Samsung are storming the market with these amazing peices of kit so keep your eyes peeled for any updates i post on here with the exact dates and more details on the Samsung Galaxy S3D, i hope you enjoyed my lens and please click like, comment and do the same with my other lenses and i will return the favour.

There is a few people saying these specs and images may not be official but as i cannot reveal my source i suppose we will have to see, i personally hope that they are not correct and the Samsung Galaxy S3 is quad core and a better design. Checkout this picture above which is the latest info and news on the Samsung Galaxy S3 as well as the video below showing the all new Smart integration upcoming from Samsung in which people beleive shows a glimse of the Samsung Galaxy S3, is it real or have the created a fake one for the video, it looks as if Samsung are really keeping us in the dark about the Galaxy S3. Some beleive that the both the pictures posted in this lens and the one above are fake as the handset is more than likley to come preinstalled with with Ice Cream Sandwich which wont require a home button of any sort so maybe they arent afterall.

Please comment with your thoughts on this below, do you think these are fake, do you think they are real, how do you think the Galaxy S3 is going to compare to the iPhone 5 ?

      Oh and have you found any rumors on when will it hit the U.S. shores because everyone knows that last year it took many months to get to the U.S. market. And one more thing, do you have an idea how Touchwiz will look on Android 4.0 because from what I have seen lately, with that wierd and ugly lock screen, has not been impressive. Thanks and by far the best article i've read about the Samsung Galaxy s3

      These are the specs that I am hoping for to in the S3:

      - Quad-core Exynos processor, such as the 5250.

      - 720p Super AMOLED HD display or even 1080p. (non-pentile)

      - Great quality camera (Since Samsung proved that mega-pixels don't actually matter) to beat the one in the Isheep 4s.

      - 2 GB of Ram.

      - Lastly, NO MORE PLASTIC
