Galaxy S3 will be a beast of a phone, and will probably beat the current “specs king” – a yet unreleased HTC One X, that comes with a quad core 1.5 GHz nVidia Tegra 3 chip (Dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 in the LTE version of HTC One X), 4.7″ 1280×720 HD display, 32 Gb of internal storage, and an 1800 MaH battery pack.

Rumored Galaxy S3 specifications:

Galaxy S3 is expected to have the following hardware, and will be running Android 4.x – Ice Cream Sandwich:

Processor: Exynos 4412 – 1.5-1.8 GHz Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 with MALI 604 graphics processor, manufactured using 32nm process.

Screen: 4.8″ Super AMOLED Plus HD display with Gorilla Glass 2 (on-screen soft buttons – no hardware capacitive buttons, just like in Galaxy Nexus).

Cameras: 12 MP rear camera, and HD front-facing camera.

Memory – RAM: 1 GB, which is currently industry standard for high end smartphones.

Memory – Storage: Expect to see this phone with 32 GB of internal memory, and (most likely) Micro SD expansion slot.

Battery: Battery size is still unknown, but it should be in the range of 1800-2200 MaH – enough to get you through the day, considering low power consumption of 32 nm processor.

Thickness: Galaxy S3 should be only 7 mm thick, which will make it one of the thinnest smartphone on the market.

There are also rumors that later iterations of Galaxy S3 will come with dual-core 2 GHz Exynos 5250, which is based on a newer (and much faster) Cortex-A15 ARM architecture. LTE versions might be built with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 or NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, coupled with its Icera 410 LTE modem.

At this point we will just have to sit tight and wait for big boys at Sammy to finally decide to announce and release its new flagship device – after all Galaxy S II is getting pretty old, and it’s time for an upgrade! I just have to wonder what kind of a beast the Galaxy Note 2 will be – I can’t wait…
