The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one most impressive smartphones on the market, and has proven to be very popular. This is also one of the main rivals to the Apple iPhone 4S. The iPhone 5 is due to be released next month, so Apple will be keen to compete with devices like the Samsung Galaxy S3. In this article, I will compare some of the potential features of the iPhone 5 with those of the Samsung Galaxy S3.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is renowned for the quality of its touchscreen, as is the current iPhone version, the iPhone 4S. The iPhone 5 is likely to see a number of changes to the screen of the iPhone 4S. One of these will be the size. Like all previous iPhone models, the iPhone 4S has a 3.5 inch screen. Because handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S3 have much larger screens, Apple will be keen to compete with devices like these and it has been suggested that a 4 inch screen will grace the spec sheet of the iPhone 5. It is also highly likely that the same retina display technology utilised by the iPhone 4S will be included in the iPhone 5 to ensure excellent display quality.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the first smartphones to incorporate a quad-core processor. At 1.4 GHz, this makes it one of the most powerful smartphones the world in terms of processing power, providing the handset with outstanding performance across many areas of its spec list. The iPhone 4S on the other hand has a 1GHz dual-core processor. This is therefore considerably less powerful on paper, but still provides excellent performance, even by today’s standards. This will be another area where Apple will be keen to compete, so a quad-core processor looks like it may be on the cards.
The iPhone 4S is renowned for quality of its 8 megapixel camera, as is the Samsung Galaxy S3. On paper, many of the camera features of these two handsets are evenly matched. This will give Apple the perfect opportunity to outdo the Samsung handset in terms of its credentials as a camera phone. Improvements may include a higher resolution, with some rumours suggesting a 12 mega pixel resolution. All the usual image enhancing features will be included, and we can expect to see more of these added to the camera of the iPhone 5 with features like panoramic shot mode and simultaneous video and photo capture, and showcased on the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Of course, Apple has always been very good at keeping the specifications of its new products under wraps until they are officially announced. The iPhone 5 is no exception, but there is now not long to wait as it is rumoured that this will take place on the 12th of September. Mark this date in your diary, as the launch of the iPhone 5 looks set to be one of the most significant smartphone launches to date.
