As 2011 comes to a close, the drums for CES and MWC are beginning to beat more loudly. Korean site Etnews reports that Samsung may introduce its Galaxy S III phone at Mobile World Congress in February. Strangely, the site also claims that it will have 3D technology built into the screen, which is odd considering that the LG Thrill (Optimus 3D) and HTC Evo 3D both failed to capture any attention with their glasses-free 3D screens.
Other rumors point to a highly capable device. Phandroid recaps the rumored specs, which include a Super AMOLED Plus HD screen, a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface overlayed on top of it. We imagine that the phone will come in many variations as well, much like the Galaxy S II, which was hand-tailored for every carrier in the United States, with each model looking slightly different.
So, are any of these rumors credible? We really don’t know. Samsung isn’t talking and MWC doesn’t start until Feb. 27 2012. More importantly, do any of you want a 3D phone? We’re pretty done with 3D.
