Dubbed the "Exynos 4 Quad," the chip will run at 1.4GHz per core and is based on the ARM Cortex A9. Samsung is touting the 32nm High-k Metal Gate technology, power management, and per-core dynamic voltage and frequency scaling. Most importantly for those waiting for the Galaxy SIII, Samsung has also let loose that it will be used on the next Galaxy smartphone:

I also thought that was pretty poor, they should win customers over with the quality of the product and not result to trying to belittle users of other phones. Being an iPhone user at the moment who is open minded to changing platform it annoyed me a little.

I see what you are saying, but to be honest the S2 was far superior to the iPhone 4 etc anyway. But i agree maybe they should have thought that through a little more

Anyway, regarding the camera, it seems it is going to be between 8-12MP, some apparent leaked shots have come out to play, but of course it is only speculation.

Iphone 4 Release date 24 June 2010
S2 Release date 1st May 2011
Iphone 4S release date 14 October 2011

So i guess a more relevant comparison would be S2 vs Iphone 4s which there was very little in terms of spec difference between them.

Will be good to see S3 vs iPhone 5, im glad that there is some good competition in Smartphones now as it will keep them pushing the limits !

Il be getting the s3 at some point, quite happy with my s2 at the moment never had an issue with it and prob best phone iv owned yet.

Put ICS on yesterday and boy the s2 seems better more responsive and quicker.

But kies is crap though

Samsung and others are considerably increasing the size of their phones because of the needed increase of the battery size.

But im with you, really hoping for a removable battery.

What do you think about the price also? ideally i want a PAYG but will probabaly be forced into a contract

Its comments like these that start the pathetic fanboi comment wars. Lets be serious i doubt there will be much difference in spec between iPhone 5 and the S3.

As for comments regarding battery life, having more Cores doesn't actually lead to greater power consumption. It can make the phone more efficient and can actually improve battery life. Each core works less hard to accomplish a task, it draws less battery power than if fewer cores strained with heavier workloads apiece. Obviously if you are working the phone to its max the battery will diminish quicker as the performance will be better but for everyday general use the battery should be better with the quad core.

The processor is particularly well-suited for heavy-load applications such as 3D games, video editing, and calculation-intensive simulation, according to Samsung. In addition, it has a video hardware codec engine for 1080p video recording and play-back, it said.

But Samsung also had battery consumption in mind when designing the processor. Due to its low-power process and power-saving design, the Exynos 4 Quad "has two times the processing capability" of its dual-core predecessor "while consuming 20 percent less power," according to the company.

For example, the processor can switch off cores to lower power consumption when all the power isn't needed, Samsung said.

i would guess the price for a SIM-only handset would be close to the £500 mark, like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was. My guess on the price would be £550 for a 16GB sim-only handset...

I hope it is to be honest, It looks like an uglier Galaxy Nexus; at least, the processor is sexy.

So much speculation around at moment its hard to filter out the crap from legit.

Never realised, looking through that list they were a lot of variants of the device.

out of interest, Has anyone had hands on time with a quad core phone ?

Just ordered a HTC One X. Hope the SGS3 is not as good.

That's a bit of a soft-assed attitude isn't it? What difference would it make to you? You've chosen yours.

I really hope the S3 comes with loads of storage space .. Along the lines of say 128Gb ish the more the better !

It's a word also used for nearly every electronic tat release these days. The use of the word in this context annoys me.Its a new phone. We all have a phone, a mobile phone needs no press conference. The only thing they can be looking for in such a "press conference" is free advertising.Marketing is sooooo gay.



Its is a legitimate use of the word launch.

There are no implications of sales by using the word launch.

Launch is used for all new products not just electronics.

The press will want to see a demo and people will want to ask questions about the phone. It makes sense to do this in one place to all the press at the same time.

if you aren't interested this thread doesn't seem to be for you, so not sure why you commenting on it.

Comment is homophobic.

Thanks for your input.

A new leak. This could be the final design:

Looks exactly the same as the Galaxy Nexus in terms of design, but with a home button and 2 touch sensitive buttons.
