The Galaxy S IV may be all the talk of the town right now, but Samsung obviously has other devices in the pipeline as well. A Galaxy S III refresh, for example.
Yes, it seems that the Korean company is getting ready to breathe new life into the flagship from yesteryear, launching an improved model with a few modifications here and there. This is nothing new, mind you – Samsung’s done something like this for both the original Galaxy S (twice, as a matter of fact) as well as the Galaxy S II. Remember the Samsung Galaxy S Plus? Or the Samsung Galaxy S Advance? What about the Galaxy S II Plus? Exactly. Samsung loves doing this, and it will release a new Galaxy S III soon.
The refreshed model will come with a better display, support for wireless charging, and a bigger battery. The information comes from Eldar Murtazin, the Russian journalist who’s known as a leaker of Samsung-related things. Most recently, he accurately told us the day of the Galaxy S IV unveiling about a week earlier than Samsung itself.
The ‘better screen’ inside the new Galaxy S III version can mean anything, or it may mean that it will come with a higher-resolution panel. Wireless charging will be built-in, no need for an aftermarket ‘kit’ anymore, and the battery capacity will be bumped up to 2,400 mAh – 300 mAh more than in the original Galaxy S III. These are all nice improvements, of course, and there may be more inside this upcoming handset. But that’s all we know right now. We’ll keep you posted.
