There are a bundle of rumors surrounding the yet to be announced Galaxy S III, and the latest bit of news coming out is that the new Samsung flagship will not be a major upgrade over its predecessor, the Galaxy S II. Given the kind of expectations people have with this new smartphone, one would think that Samsung would go all out on the device. We just saw a quad-core Exynos chipset on the Meizu MX quad-core which broke cover yesterday, and there’s every possibility that this one too would feature the same quad core CPU.
According to a source cited by Cnet, the new Galaxy S III will feature only a minor upgrade contrary to the rumors. It is said that the device might not even be called the Galaxy S III due to the intensity of the upgrade. Now that’s a contrasting bit of information considering what we have been treated with so far. The source further says – “It’ll be like the iPhone 4S was to the 4” telling us that it’s not a major bump from its predecessor.
The tipster however also seems to have mentioned a unique eye tracking feature on the new smartphone. This feature, apparently, will work as a secondary lock on the device which will lock the device when the user is looking away (using the front facing camera).
