We are more and more convinced that the iPhone 5 will be arriving in early autumn, especially with the white iPhone 4 being launched so late. Samsung is working on a smartphone thought to be the Samsung Galaxy S3, and we can expect it also to be launched this autumn, according to Eldar Murtazin (opens in new tab) editor in chief of mobile-review.com.
A Korean online newspaper recently added to the speculation about the anticipated smartphone, quoting a Samsung official as saying: “We are planning to release a 2 GHz dual core CPU-equipped smartphone by next year. This product will have the data processing capacities of a regular PC."
Murtazin, who is well known for his predictions regarding smartphones, also having previously predicted that Nokia will start featuring Windows Phone 7, mentions that Samsung Galaxy S3 could come this fall and it could very well be the same smartphone that Samsung officials have been talking about.
If the Galaxy S3 will really “have the data processing capacities of a regular PC”, then the iPhone 5, which is also rumoured to be released this autumn, will meet a genuine rival.
On the other hand, there isn’t yet an official release data for the Galaxy S2 from the company itself, but we know that June is the scheduled month given by T-Mobile.
