The time of rumors is almost over. Samsung has sent official invitations for a media event in the capital of Great Britain, London. This is the device that will go head to head against the Apple iPhone 5, HTC One X and others…
2012 is looking to be a landmark year for Samsung. It was recently revealed that Samsung overtook Nokia as the largest manufacturer of mobile phones (due to Nokia becoming a victim of the cliff theory) and the company is preparing probably the second anticipated smartphone in the world, and the first smartphone that has a chance of actually selling more units than the most anticipated smartphone in the world.
There's no guessing there. The question is can a Samsung Galaxy SIII, rumored to be powered by a non-percentile 4.5 inch "Super AMOLED Plus HD" display with 1280×720 or 1280×800 pixel resolution. Furthermore, the case will no longer be plastic, which was considered as the biggest flaw of Galaxy S and SII (cheap feeling), but the company opted to take aluminum, burn it with 10,000 Volts and create a ceramic casing. This process is also used on "one of HTC Ones" i.e. the mainstream model (One S).
Today, Samsung Electronics sent out invitations for a media event taking place on May 3rd in London, the capital of Great Britain. Samsung will fly in a select number (hundreds) of journalists, analysts and other guests and show their key product for the upcoming 12 months.
Can a 4.5" Galaxy beat a rumored 4.3" iPhone 5? Only time (and customers wallets) will give that answer.
