Samsung’s next flagship Galaxy device is probably the most anticipated smartphone the company has ever produced. There’s been consistent interest in the Galaxy S III and Samsung has acknowledged that the Android exists, but stated an official announcement of the device will be made via Twitter first.
Many rumours of the specs have surfaced online, plus possibly pictures of its design. However, according to Simon Stanford, VP of Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland, the next generation of the Galaxy S II is already living, and it’s the Galaxy Note.
Stanford stated that “The evolution in S2 is already here, it’s there, it’s Galaxy Note and that is a really strong device for Samsung…People don’t have to have a tablet and smart phone — it can be done all in one device — which is exactly what people are using it for… It’s as simple as that — because I can do everything I want from that particular product. The 5.3-inch screen is perfect for gaming, video, it’s also ideal for PowerPoint presentations, Excel presentations, Flash presentations. I can edit those, look at them, share them.”
The 5.3-inch tablet/phone is what we’ve all been patiently waiting for. When Samsung officially announced the Note, which has now sold over 5 million units, they stated they’ve created new category of device. Perhaps Stanford wants to make the most out of the time before the big GS III push this Summer and not cannibalize Note sales. Yes, every flagship device is an evolution from the previous flagship device, but the only way the Note will be an evolution towards the GS III is if it includes an S Pen, wich I can’t see happening. Unless it’ll be called the “Samsung Galaxy S III Note.”
The GS III will come with some increased specs – rumoured to be 4.65-inch display, OS 4.0, 1.5Ghz quad-core processor, 8MP camera, 7mm thin.
