Samsung Galaxy S2 remained a market leader as far as Android phones are concerned. Samsung is surely looking to keep the legacy. With the announcement of Galaxy S3 it has spared no effort to break the record of the predecessor by a big margin. As a result what we are going to see is a perfect blend of performance and features most likely by the last quarter of this year.
Samsung Galaxy S3 will feature a hardware that is mostly engineered by Samsung themselves. There is an endless list of features but we’ll only look to cover the most important ones here.
