    Samsung Galaxy S III Will Make Debut at MWC 2012

    As we begin to put an end to 2011, and look on to 2012, we can't help but feel that the spanking new Android smartphone we picked up recently will seem old, slow and outdated very soon. Hark! Your feelings of inadequacy towards your shiny smartphone are...adequate.

    ETNews reports that Samsung cometh with a new Galaxy S device which will reportedly make it's debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 in Barcelona, Spain Feb. 27th - March 1st 2012. Hot off the heels of the Galaxy Nexus release in December, as well as a massive amount of new Android activations this month, brings a new breed of smartphone with quad-core organs.

    As leaked out online back in September 2011, the new Galaxy S III from Samsung will put the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II to shame with it's 2.0GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 10 megapixel camera with full 1080p video capabilities and 32GB of internal storage. BAM! It'll most likely and almost certainly launch with Android 4.0 ICS installed as well. The Galaxy S II is still the reigning fastest selling Samsung smartphone to date when it launched in 2011 and sold over 3 million in under 55 days.

    I don't know about you, but suddenly my Galaxy S II has lost a little luster. The pains of being in the Android Army.

    This will be a beast of a phone. However, those specs are likely to change. Samsung is having issues right now with their own compiled builds of ICS with touchwiz , and battery life is bad right now from what I'm hearing . Level one prototype units are sitting around in chandler Arizona , and Dallas :).

    Expect this to hit Europe first, again. :rolleyes:


    Stay Nexus my friends..

    I hope my S2 will be good for at least a couple years -- seems like it has plenty of power to pull it off. Phones are getting up to laptop level power -- that's insane.

    That's awesome. I'm having a hard time believing those specs, but that would be awesome if it came out with specs like that.

    I don't have a VZW upgrade until end of 2012, so I'll just wait for the fourth-gen Nexus! :)

    Crap, i just got the S2 a month ago...but at $50 i couldnt pass it up...and I imagine the S3 will start off easily at $200 + and will stay there for a while.

    The Galaxy Nexus will probably be the first, and last Nexus on Verizon :(

    This was expected when the GS2 took 7 months to hit stateside.

    That's like a full smart phone generation right there...

    I just bought a freaking phone. By the time I upgrade, it'll be a PC, Xbox, and microwave oven rolled up in one.

    And 98% of the public will still just be checking Facebook, the weather, playing Angry Birds, and calling mom on it... but it will have 256 cores, 128 gigs of RAM, and a 42" screen, because you need it, dammit!

    I think I could hoist that sucker on my back and let it stream cancer inducing advertisements to pay it off.

    But at least I can run the latest Android flavor, Delicious Crack, on it, and future proof myself for another 4 months.
