Samsung has already started to test the Galaxy S3 with South Korean carriers according to a report published by Korean news publication, AsiaE and the process appears to be more arduous than previously thought.
There are reports that Samsung wants the testing to be done faster than the standard 60 days period but this is proving to be more difficult than expected because of the new hardware the S3 is expected to come.
Oddly enough, Samsung will release a quad core smartphone much later than some of its competitors like LG, HTC, Huawei and ZTE. Both Sony Mobile and Motorola have refrained from launching quad core models focusing instead on other features.
In addition to a quad core processor, the Galaxy S3 is expected to come with a 4.3-inch 1,280 by 720 pixels screen, Android Ice Cream Sandwich, wireless charging and NFC, a ceramic casing, 2GB RAM, ample amount of onboard storage plus a microSD card slot.
The smartphone is expected to be launched within the next few months possibly during the summer at a special Samsung "unpacked" event.
