The Samsung Galaxy S3 – We Explore How This Model Could Differ From The Original Galaxy S Device
Two years ago we saw the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S. This stylish phone went on to become a global success with over 20 million of the devices being shipped. Technology moves at a very fast pace however and the Galaxy S was replaced with the S2 which achieved similar levels of success. We are now expecting the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the first half of 2012 so we take a look at how things have progressed since the launch of the original phone.
The original Galaxy model boasted a high quality 4.3 inch Super AMOLED screen which could display a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. At the time of the phones released this quality eclipsed what rival handsets could offer but the bar has been raised by devices like the iPhone 4S that offer an even higher resolution. In order to stay ahead of the competition we can expect the new Samsung Galaxy S3 to offer the highest resolution possible. Rumours are circulating about the new model being the first mobile device to feature a Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen but we think that it is likely that the model will offer somewhere around the 720 x 1280 level. Modern consumers also use their handsets for viewing more multi media material than ever before. With this in mind Samsung are set to increase the size of the screen. The manufacturers already have a device that caters for people requiring a screen larger than 5 inches so we can expect this new model to offer a display that measures between 4.6 and 4.8 inches. What ever size screen is used we should expect a pixel density that is higher than can be found on the market leading iPhone 4S.
One area where technology has developed very quickly is in the processing department. The Galaxy S was released with a Hummingbird chipset which delivered fast operating speeds to the user. This chipset comprised of a powerful 1Ghz Cortex A8 single core processor and a PowerVR SGX540 graphics processing unit. A few months after the model was released dual core mobile chips were developed and in 2011 we saw the release of the Galaxy S2 complete with one of these processors. We are now ready to welcome the very first quad core phones and we expect the Samsung Galaxy S3 to be one of the first. The model will run on Samsung’s own Exynos chipset and incorporate a quad core processor that is clocked at a speed of around 1.5Ghz. The advantage of the processor containing multiple cores is that the model can handle several different tasks at the same time without there being a negative effect on operation speeds. This means users of the S3 can be happily browsing the web with music playing in the background and not notice any reduction in performance levels.
Mobile technology changes at a very fast rate and the new Samsung Galaxy S3 illustrates this point perfectly. The original Galaxy S offered the highest possible specification at the time of its release but just two years later the new model totally eclipses it in almost every department.
