The next Galaxy

17: Community Champion

 

So I'm really excited by the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy S III.

 

Anyone got any thoughts or comments on the highly anticipated new Phone?

 

Why not discuss them here...!

What do a Apple narrrrrr

Most no what I want and that's not to follow HTC with a non removable battery 

I hope it has a Big Battery like the Note and a SD slot 

 

Dark Blue might be OK, But not like the Nokia that is well Yuck!!!!

I'm Not even keen on white, But I stick a gel case on any how as that stops damage and moisture getting in

I hope we get a choice to shut Touchwiz of and go like the Nexus

But this is supposed to have a new touchwiz and its needed

Ii hope the build has improved as well  the S2 was a bit plasticy for me

But If its as good as the Note then it will rock for me

Poor Poor Poor Apple Users

Unfortunately my contract has a couple of months left to run, but it does give me the opportunity to sit back and monitor how the S 3 performs!

 

I'm really hoping we can acquire one or two for the DLP, it would be awesome to give members an oportunity to try this phone...?

 

 

 

@Nabs

Lol, changing the Name... yeah, now that would be really funny!

I really like phones in white, I think they somehow look classy.

 

The HTC Magic was the first phone I saw in white and it always looked stunning.

 

I also remember the Motorola Razr in Blue, that was a very attractive phone.

I can't wait for the SGS3! Shall be moving on from my HTC Sensation for this mobile. Looks like we'll be getting a 4.8" 720p HD S-AMOLED screen (possibly curved?). The quad core Exynos chipset looks like to be a class leader as well. Just hope it has ample RAM (1GB) and will still support external MicroSD storage to bump up the 16/32GB options.

 

We'll find out more tomorrow!

If you could invent your very own Next Galaxy Phone, what features would you include?

 

What features would you leave out?

 

What features are you hoping Samsung will include...?

 

What features are you hoping Samsung leave out...?

Lot of Q's! Here is what I predict the SGS3 will have...

 

  • 4.8" S-AMOLED (non-pentile) screen, 720p resolution
  • Quad-core Exynos CPU with newer Mali GPU on a 32/22nm process
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16/32GB Internal Storage, expandable via MicroSD (SDHC)
  • 12MP camera
  • GPS, A-GPS, Gyroscope, Compass, Barometer 
  • 15000mAh user removable battery
  • HDMI out via MHL adapter
  • ICS 4.0.3 with refined TouchWIZ interface

It should be pretty slim too, however if it is, then perhaps the battery might not be removable.

 

NFC is up in the air, however there will be new methods to add NFC support to existing phones so it could be a non-issue. One thing I hope they include is a kernel that fully supports USB-OTG. HoneyComb supports it as does ICS but it gets neglected. BT 4.0 would be very welcome as well.

 

As for the features to remove... Vlingo/Voice Recognition via the double tap of the home button! At least make it user defined to enable the shortcut or not.

@NeoBlade

 

Nice list...

 

I read some reports earlier in the year about a possible 2000mAh Lithium-Polymer battery, possibly giving double the life expectancy due to improved gps and wifi scanning?

 

I have a feeling we may see more than 1GB of Ram. Maybe tied into having dedicated graphics ram?

 

I would like to see an easily docked configuration, with my interest in running Ubuntu on Phones, that would be a bonus for me.

Boot to Ubuntu/Linux would be very nice as well, as long as its optimised to run at a decent speed and is usable. We should be development on ARM speeding up at a crazy pace now that Microsoft has thrown their weight behind the platform thanks to Windows 8. I wonder about ChromeOS as well... Could be an interesting userspace of things develop.

 

I welcome a higher capacity battery to be honest, however the Exynos should be pretty power efficient to help negate a lower capacity battery if it were the case. 1GB RAM is the sweet spot atm and without knowing too much about Jelly Bean just yet (Android 5.x?) it could be enough. 1.5GB would be nice or even 2GB however that would drive prices up. If the RAM was unified though then 2GB would make more sense, however it depends on the type and speed of the RAM on offer.

Well the 2000mah battery is possible they have one in the Note

A sd slot is a must and Fast fast fast for me and it not being out of date in six Months would be nice but a dock would be good idea

For some strange reason I really want this phone to be something like no one has ever seen...!

 

I don't know why, perhaps it's all the hype and speculation?

 

If it's not something really special I have a feeling Samsung may catch a cold...?
