Samsung says 'yes' to iPhone 5-sized Galaxy S III
No enormo-handsets please, we're Europeans
Samsung has confirmed that it’ll launch a 4in version of its Android-based popular Galaxy S III smartphone in Germany tomorrow.
The scaled down device is being pitched at Europeans unhappy with the existing, 4.8in S III and would prefer something a little easier to hold and use in one hand and fits in pockets better. Something like the iPhone 5, in other words, which also has a 4in screen.
And while the handset will be smaller than the current S III, all the hints coming out of Samsung suggest it won’t be any less functional than the big phone introduced in May. ®
Why the need to compare it to the iPhone 5? Like the iPhone 5 was the first 4" device. Apple have only just realised the trend and like for larger screens. Samsung's already been and done 4".
Let me try a new headline for you. "Samsung says 'yes' to Galaxy S II sized Galaxy S III."
if you are going to diss someone, get your facts straight first.
The galaxy s2 name had many variants. The SGH-I927 galaxy s2 variant had a 4" screen. Samsung are no strangers to releasing many variants of their products for different markets (and carriers)
but it's not like fact have an relevance in these discussions, right?
Re: It's a start
why should it need to increase the resolution? 1280x720 is more than enough for a screen of that size. Whilst 1920x1080 screens are available it wouldn't actually add any benefits. It wouldn't be any noticeably sharper and would need a much more powerful graphics processor to cope with the increased resolution. This whole drive to ever-increasing resolutions is pointless once you go past a certain point.
