Rumors on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II sequel continue to surface, but none is 100% accurate until the South Korean company confirms it.
Initially slated for a February release at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Samsung Galaxy S III
was postponed for unknown reasons.
The handset maker officially explained that the Galaxy S III would have its own event, but it did not reveal any timeframe for the announcement.
According to the latest hearsay, we’re closer to the Galaxy S III launch than we may think as the phone might be unveiled at Samsung Unpacked event in London on May 22.
However, as always, everything that has to do with rumors on Samsung products, this information has to be taken with a grain of salt.
Recently, a Samsung exec, who wished to remain unnamed, confirmed that the Galaxy S III would be equipped with the company’s new Exynos 5 all-in-one solution chipset, which features four A9 cores and LTE support.
Today, there’s another report that points to more technological wonders that might be embedded into Samsung’s Android flagship smartphone. DDaily
, citing anonymous sources, claims that Samsung Galaxy S III will offer wireless charging.
Although the technology is already available on the market, few handset vendors embraced it, which is why Samsung
wants to lead the way with its Galaxy S III.
The smartphone will be shipped with the necessary technology out of the box, which means that users won’t need to replace the battery cover or insert an inductive charging coil into the phone.
For the time being, industry insiders say that Samsung Galaxy S II will be available with a wireless charging case in the sales package. However, the company has yet to decide whether this will be sold separately as an accessory or it will go along with the phone.
