Finally, Galaxy S3 has arrived to the SmartPhone Arena. Let’s us compare it to the recently launch HTC One X and other smartphone: Iphone 4s and Nokia Lumia 900.
After many rumours fly though the internet, Samsung finally announced their much exciting phone at London. The new device features all the latest goodies including Exynos quad core 1.4Ghz, 4.8” HD super AMOLED display, 8MP rear camera,NFC, 2100 mah battery and android 4.0. All that in a 8.6mm thick body. It seems that a lot of rumour were right about the spec.
Galaxy S3 also soon has 4G capability model which will allow you surfing the web as fast as on your Unifi optic fiber. I can’t believe that Samsung can actually squeeze so much hardware chips into a 8.6mah. Don’t forget that it will have a 2100 mah battery which Samsung promised to give user a full day usage with their 2012 handsets.
Samsung has learned a lot from Apple and they going to sell Galaxy S3 in Europe from the end of the May before rolling out to global market.Check on the videos and photo gallery.

While Google+ gained some attention in the few weeks before, Google has released a massive redesign over the existing User Interface (UI). The new UI seems much more sleeker and customizable where you can change position and remove icons on the left side. You can also preview the item within the icon by hovering over them.
‘Hangouts’ has always been Google+ unique function for video chatting. Now, it has added a dedicated button on the homepage for quick access to chat with your friends. Posting photo and videos is getting an updates as well. It allows you to view larger photos and add a Explorer tab at the same time.
The new design has started to roll out to some users and more functions are to be expected to come out this week. Google+ currently has more than 90 million users and has been more aggressively trying to lure users into using its platform as an alternative to Facebook.
Do you think it will be on par with Facebook anytime soon, or sometime later, for that matters?
More updates coming soon, so stay tuned with us. Cheers and have a great Monday!
From the previous press leak about the Galaxy S3. Phonearena uncovered a leaked shot of the codename GT-9300 not long ago. The picture showed that it’s running android 4.0 and also featured a buttonless design just like Nexus.
The spec of this device also leaked half of the details. For now we know that it will running a Exynos 1.4 Ghz dual core processor just like Galaxy Note. It also has a smaller 4 ” screen with ARM Mail-400 MP graphics and 720p display.
From our observe this can’t be the new Galaxy S3 and since Samsung already released Galaxy S Advance, it will most probably a minor update for the Galaxy S2. We still can’t be sure yet but we will let you all know when we found out. Stay tuned.
