South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung has already released a nice range of smartphones in India, but it appears that the company is getting ready for the release of some more handsets, including one that will hit shelves as Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo+.
Just as its name suggests, the new device is expected to be an improved version of the Galaxy S3, which was brought to the market in India about two years ago.
The phone hasn’t been officially introduced as of now, but smartphone retailer @MaheshTelecom claims that it will arrive soon, with a price tag of Rs. 24,900 ($416/€302) attached to it.
Apparently, the upcoming device will feature the same 4.8-inch touchscreen display as the Galaxy S3, a Super AMOLED panel capable of delivering a 720p resolution.
However, it will include a 1.4GHz quad-core processor inside, most probably a Snapdragon 400 one, paired with 1GB of RAM, which should give it a performance boost when compared to the predecessor.
According to gadgetstouse, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo+ will also include 8GB of internal memory, along with a microSD memory card slot with support for at least 64GB of additional storage space.
On the back, the mobile phone will sport an 8-megapixel camera, supposedly capable of recording videos in full HD resolution, complemented by a 1.3MP front camera for making video calls while on the go.
Said retailer also unveiled that the new device will feature a 2100mAh battery inside, as well as dual-SIM capabilities, most probably with dual-standby features too.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo+ will run under the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system right from the start and should also include a series of exclusive applications and features coming from Samsung themselves.
Featuring model number i9300i, the yet unannounced handset is said to arrive on the market in India in the next several days, which suggests that an official announcement from Samsung will be made shortly as well.
Although the Indian retailer has a great record when it comes to leaking unannounced devices, we’ll still have to take the info above with a grain of salt, at least until Samsung decides to formally introduce the handset.
However, considering the fact that it already launched the model in China only several days ago, Samsung might very well unveil Galaxy S3 Neo+ in India soon. After all, the company is looking at new ways of grabbing more market share, and the unveiling of such a phone will certainly help.
