    It will not have a 3d screen.

    The skyrocketed HD was unveiled by AT&t at CeS ....that is a carrier name

    Samsung could be calling it something completely different [and typically does]

    You guys seem to miss the fact that 98% of the market does not buy a phone based on specs....but I can't really convey that point well without saying things that I can't.

    I promised you guys updates...i didn't promise you that we would like them :(

    Apple is coming out with a new phone this year. Samsung is hell bent to out do them. I'm sorry, I just find all this info hard to believe. If they announce this phone with not much of a difference from the S2 at their big event, they will be a laughing stock.

    I really didn't expect it to have a 3D screen. The next gen of iPod Touch and the iPad 3 are rumored to have a 3D screen, so I was just putting this out there. I didn't have a lot of faith in it due to the talk about the 12 MP camera that seems so strong. But it is a rumor and this is a rumor mongering thread :)

    And I'd agree with the idea that 98% of the market doesn't buy phones based off the specs. And I bet that most of the point that you can't talk about really just revolve around aesthetics. Like how does the phone look/feel? How does the UI look and work? How does the screen look? How is the clarity? That sort of thing. And for some reason, people like extremely thin electronic devices with big screens and then wonder why batteries don't last forever.

    just pointing out that a sucessor isn't going to have the same specs with an updated screen.

    unless of course, they don't plan on launching an "s3". and don't feel like you need to defend yourself, we're not attacking you :)

    samsung releasing there own old phones with new name in an special dedicated event lol....i dont think so and it wont happen.But i dont want to see quad core in s3 because i dont see a reason why after all a mobile phone needs so many cores....all i expect is 720p display,12 mp camera and better UI:)

    Well, I guess Mr. Ed's source is poised to be wrong this time for sure. Unless he is a Korean Samsung employee at some high level inside loop of new smartphone developments, I wouldn't put much stock in his saying at least for this time.

    SGSII HD is already on sale in Korea since November last year and Sammy will just repackage that phone to call it SGS3 to world this year? Sorry, that doesn't make sense.

    we don't need more mp, we need a bigger camera sensor. i'm fine sticking with 8mp

    Mr. Ed Well-Known Member

    Hmmm...i dunno...if i had released a slew of pproducts over the past year ..each better than the last, and I didn't receive the response I was looking for.. I might rethink my strategy

    But that's just me ....by no means did anyone tell me that a company we know well is looking into a different marketing strategy vs pushing specs at us.

    Should be an interesting next 30 days tho that is for sure.

    I like rumors and speculation .. It keeps me on my toes in my line of work and helps me think outside of the box
  9. Mr. Ed

    Mr. Ed Well-Known Member

    Lol...I love it...a source that has proven to be accurate is "for sure" no longer trusted because he didn't say what you wanted to hear


    Rumors are never sure

    silly humans

    that goes both ways ;)
  11. Sandroidfan

    Sandroidfan Well-Known Member

    Well, he didn't say just what I wanted to hear but also millions of others wanted to hear.:p

    A lot of android buyers are not like Apple fans and they actually care what's inside the device. And samsung is well aware how high expectation on this one is.

    edit: OK, I will stop here on this. There is no point until official info comes from samsung.
  12. Mr. Ed

    Mr. Ed Well-Known Member

    I agree...

    I am not trying to argue with you guys at all lol. just trying to open your minds a little.

    They aren't after android fans...they have "us"

    My point above is that "what if" they are putting their concentration towards the sheep?

    i will report back whatever else I find out. We are having lunch this week so I will try and squeeze more out of him.

    The note releases this weekend so he will be turning that device in and hopefully picking up whatever is next in line soon!
  13. Mr. Ed

    Mr. Ed Well-Known Member

    Point taken. coming from me to you...they are rumors...

    I am hindered by the fact that I get the info direct so its harder for me to understand that point of view

    This is one i don't want to be right. I have a skyrocket with 1.5 processor and lte....i can't see my next phone only adding an HD screen...i want more than that

    Got a pic of the next great thing!


    Seriously tho, this is my good friend and co-worker's phone ....we have to bring him into the now!

    So if we all start bleating, we'll get the phone with the specs we want, right? :D

    Samsung has an opportunity right now to squash Apple (for good), by releasing the Galaxy S3 before the iPhone 5, and also making it blow the 5 out of the water spec wise.

    A quad core would be exactly that homerun that they need to steal all of Apple iPhone 5 sales.
  16. xtop

    xtop Well-Known Member

    it's likely apple does quad core as well, well..we'll see in a few weeks with ipad3. but they'll still have a better gpu to boot.

    squash for good? hah
  17. Sandroidfan

    Sandroidfan Well-Known Member

    Well said. That's another reasons why I don't get Sammy will just repackage SGSII HD from last year to make SGSIII, not to mention other quad core android beasts. See, even iFans will brag about their quad A6 with tremendous GPU power. How in the world, Samsung will go against that with dual S3 snapdragon from last year? If they are really that dumb to do that, all the major IT medias (Engadget, BGR, Cnet, etc) will make bad press about it and SGSIII will be relegated to mid range cheap phone for sheeps.

    Exactly! I don't believe any of that stuff. There's no way in hell Samsung is releasing a recycled GS2 and making a big event of it. HTC is making a beast phone....so is LG. Samsung will be left in the dust and be laughed at if what Ed is saying is true. Samsung is not stupid.....I believe they'll release a monster phone.

    Give flagship phone it's own announcement/launch event = Nifty trick to make phone seem more awesome than it already is. I don't remember if they did it for the S2 but they'll sure do it for the S3.

    Realize that (IMHO), iPhone buyers do not care about specs. Its the name. Outside these forums, how many people know the processor speed of their phones? I'd wager that 99% of current iPhone users think they have a quad core phone or 4G phone since it has the number (4) in it's name.
  22. Orion

    Orion Well-Known Member

    Yeah and these are the same people that Samsung pokes fun at in their commercials....in case you haven't noticed.
  23. Mr. Ed

    Mr. Ed Well-Known Member

    You do realize it is working right?

    I don't know which is stronger.. the influx of apple to android converts that were upset by the 4s or the amount of curiosity that has been peaked by those commercials.

    90% of them actually don't know about android...and those commercials target in on some of it's unique advantages.

    I know I have had more than a handful of my I friends ask more questions about android than they ever have in the past. In the past they simply blew off android as being sub par ...

    At least my friends with iPhone4S around me know it has dual core A5 with blazing speed, iOS5 and excellent camera.

    BTW, even Motorola seems to be readying their big gun Atrix 3 with Tegra3, 2Gb RAM, HD screen. Now it's only Samsung that has to show their big card to world, repackaged SGSII HD won't cut it.
  25. Orion

    Orion Well-Known Member

    Yeah those rumored specs for the Atrix 3 look unbelievable. Every company is coming out with the heavy artillery this year. So I believe Samsung will come out with something big.
