Today's Galaxy S III related info is more reliable than usual, since it's brought to us by one of Samsung's very own executives. In an interview with a Korean newspaper, he confirmed an Exynos-branded quad-core chipset which will be used in the company's upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S III.
Samsung also confirmed that it's aware of the fact that most previous-gen LTE handsets used a separate chip for LTE connectivity, and chances are that this is a huge reason for their somewhat poor battery life. Obviously, after acknowledging this issue, the next step which will the Korean company will make is to feature their own on-chip LTE radio, thus eliminating the problem for their next Android headliner.
It's good to have these specs confirmed, but we still have so many questions left. For example, what will be the architecture of the four CPU cores? Most rumors indicate towards the 32nm version of the Cortex-A9, but Cortex-A15 is also in the rumor mill. A quad-core Mali CPU is also in the race, but who knows if it'll be the brand-new T604 or just an upgraded version of the 400MP which is used on the S II.
Anyway, we don't want to get too technical, so we'll just say that the Samsung Galaxy S III will definitely represent one of the most powerful smartphones on the market, and we're dying to see it in person. Come on, Samsung, just announce it already!
