    if the new GS3 gets the quad core exynos processer, its supposed to have crazy battery optimization. i think we can expect a good battery life, maybe 8-9 hrs of web surfing
    I'd get it in a heartbeat if it lasted that long. But seeing as how the gsii can only last about 4 hours they'd need to get the battery into the 3000+ mah area for there to be a chance of 8+ hours. So seeing as how they're going to be making the screen bigger and increase dpi/resolution... not too confident this is going to deliver in terms of battery life. Maybe they'll optimize the screen somehow. Maybe the cpu optimizations will be enough.

    Worst case scenario is we get only 4 hours or less. Best case scenario is samsung throws in some magic and gets us 10+ hours
    A little too hopeful but that's just because I really want this phone

    I refuse to look at "leaked" pics before may 3rd because I know they're all fake and or prototypes that will never see the inside of my pocket. No matter how good or bad the leaks look, I'll just wait to see the real thing

    Totally agree, plus add in Samsung already made it clear they have a few dummy case units out on the market...so these leaks may certainly have the internals of the GSIII but nothing close to the outside.

    Heck that unit has a huge bezel...bigger than the GSII

    In light of the recent Kies software GS 3 spot, I am really considering that the GT-i9300 (and T model) will in fact be the next iteration in the Galaxy S line and Samsung's next truly flagship device (GT-i9800 possibly) will be named something else entirely. Why go through all the secrecy and hype of releasing your "next" premier phone, only to blatantly display it through your own software a week early?

    Yep thats exactly what i said in the other thread.... i think this samsung kies leak is just one of samsungs teaser plans... i refuse to believe they themselves will put this up and expect no one to notice

    No word on GPU, which would be the reason its so fast. That and Samsung tweaks the software a bit.

    The One X isn't even on that list, so we have no idea how they compare.

    As for the processor, he said the initial Euro launch model will feature the A9 quad core 4412 Exynos, while the American Sprint launch will see the dual core 2ghz A15 Exynos.
    So far, your friend is correct about the 4412. Hopefully, he's correct about the A15.

    I sure as hell hope so, but it's looking doubtful. (I'm just speaking out of my a$$ here but...) The A15 looks to be as big of a jump over the 4412 as the jump from last years Exynos to the 4412. I've really, really got my fingers crossed. Hopefully we get Exynos period in the U.S.

    If we end up with the Super AMOLED instead of the SAMOLED+, I might just stay with the EVO line this time...

    Banking on my friend being correct... Here's to waiting a couple more days!

    Did anybody else see THIS? The A15 is still in the sampling phase...not ready to ship in devices yet. I bet one of the first things we see the A15 in is a Win8 tablet.

    Just did, and it makes sense, honestly. It's a good chip, but I was hoping to be blown away like with last year's Exynos. Honestly, paired with Sammy's good design, a big battery and a SAMOLED+ (hoping it can stand at least toe to toe with the SLCD2), should be a nice phone. Once again, I'm sure Sprint will tweak something for the better like they've done before. Part of the S2's prowess was not only what was under the hood, but also Sammy's incredible software optimization - it really set it apart from the pack, imo. Hope that continues.

    My source was right about everything else thus far though... Granted he hasn't responded to me in a while. Maybe he heard U.S. was getting the A15 dual core and immediately thought Exynos, as opposed to Krait... that would make sense. Honestly, don't care much about his explanation at this point, I just wanna see the device be unveiled. I'm pretty confident it'll leak at least somewhat before May 3rd.

    Is it too early to start yearning for the gsIV or the galaxy note II? I have a feeling this release might be a little underwhelming considering all the hype
    04-26-2012 11:16 AM
  23. Love Divine's Avatar
    Yeah, we might see the Quad core 5 series with Mali T658 in the Galaxy SIV at this point. Maybe that'll see an April 2013 launch?

    I guess I'll be fine with the S4. I mean, after all, as long as it plays all the fancy games perfectly and we have a smooth UI, it almost doesn't matter what's under the hood. Technically speaking, the S4 is more advanced, going to have to do some reading on the 225. The reviews of the AT&T One X should be pretty revealing since it will run the same resolution as the GS3 while the One S is only running at qhd.

    The Adreno 225 isn't slow at all, but it's also not a Mali or high-end PowerVR either. It can stream 1080p at 60fps I believe, so what more do you want?
