If there's one thing likely to hack off eager Android lovers holding out for the Samsung Galaxy S III, it's the mere suggestion that it'll be anything less than the bestest phone ever.
But according to a tipster, the revolutionary handset that we're all on tenterhooks waiting for won't actually be that at all. In fact, it'll be more an incremental update in the same way the iPhone 4S was to the iPhone 4.
CNET's anonymous source even claims it may not be called the Galaxy S III. Indeed, the invitation to what is widely expected to be the launch event on May 3 only invites you to "come and meet the next Galaxy".
One of the cool new features of whatever the phone is called is apparently an eye-tracking app that Samsung calls "human interaction".
The idea is that the camera on the front of the front of the device follows what your peepholes are doing and locks the device when you look away. Think Face Unlock but in reverse. We can't wait to see how that affects the battery but will stand by and wait since Samsung has promised that new handsets will be able to go like the clappers.
Specs wise (and remember, this is just based on a tipster so we urge a pinch of salt), think along these lines: 1.5GHz quad core processor, 1GB RAM, 4.65-inch 1280 x 720p display (Super AMOLED Plus of course) and a belter of a camera. Considering the Galaxy SII came out a year with an 8MP snapper, we'd hope for an update to 12MP. But who knows?
Anyway, just a few more weeks 'til we find out. Based on how Samsung has kept an Apple-like grip on info surrounding this handset, frankly it's anyone's guess.
