Samsung Galaxy SIII Review & Specifications
Still not officially outed yet, here we have the full details on the final and long-awaited, Samsung Galaxy SIII.
Perhaps not up to the specifications a lot of us were hoping for, the Galaxy SIII is none the less a sleek, modern and powerful powerhouse of a phone, certainly designed with the future in mind.
Taking somewhat from the Nexus parts bin, the specifications list reads almost the same.
Of interest though, are that tasty 1.4Ghz Exynos Quad Core CPU, 720×1280 4.8inch Gorilla Glass screen, Multi Touch up to 10 fingers and Android 4.04.
Weighing in at slightly heavier than its forebear Galaxy SII, the SIII tips the scales at 133grams compared with 116grams for the smaller SII. The III is also .01mm thicker than the SII, nothing we will notice in our hands I am sure.
See below for a full spec list!
Another interesting point of difference, is that Samsung and Dropbox have teamed up to offer all Samsung Galaxy SIII owners a 50GB Dropbox account! This is significant as we see mobile manufacturers looking to the Cloud to provide further storage options.
Samsung will ship the Galaxy SIII in white and blue, reminiscent of the choices available for the Galaxy Note phablet device.
Available in all markets soon, the device will ship first in the UK it seems for a lofty 600 pounds!
We certainly can’t wait to get our hands on one, how about you?
