Samsung Galaxy S3 Announced – the Quad-core Battle Begins (Galaxy S3 vs HTC One X)

On May 3rd, 2012, Samsung officially announced the most awaited smartphone of the year 2012 – the Galaxy S3. Successor to the record-breaking and hugely popular Galaxy S2, the latest star of Galaxy series is packed to the brim with high-end features and specs. With HTC already shipping their Quad-core flagship “One X”, Galaxy S3’s entry will begin the war of “cores” and speed.

Overall Galaxy S3 is Samsung’s flagship Android superphone for 2012 with sleek-build (8.6mm thick), blazing fast speeds (Quad Core, 1.4GHz, Exynos CPU), stunning graphics (Mali-400MP GPU), extra-large display (4.8inches, 1280x720pixels, HD Super AMOLED), powerful battery (2100mAh), Android 4 (ICS), Corning Gorilla Glass2, upto 64GB microSD card support, Bluetooth v4 and several other goodies. The only con of SGS3 is its plastic-build that gives a cheap feeling in the hand, in my opinion.
