Samsung's Galaxy S II line of smartphones has enjoyed tremendous success worldwide, selling 3 million units in just 55 days. As we found during our review of Sprint's variant of the phone, the Galaxy S II is definitely a great handset—dare we say one of the better ones to ship this year. As is typical in the world of electronics, however, this handset won't stay at the top for long.
In fact, we're already experiencing gadget envy now that we're seeing more details about the upcoming successor to the Galaxy S II, appropriately called the Galaxy S III. This new smartphone is rumored to feature a 2.0GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 10 megapixel camera with full 1080p video capabilities, and 32GB of internal storage. Those are certainly some attractive specs to say the least. The new variant of the Galaxy family is also expected to feature Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
Word on the web suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S III will make its debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 which will take place in Barcelona, Spain from February 27 through March 1. Needless to say, we've marked our calendars and will be anxiously awaiting official word from Samsung.
