Lange was confusion about whether the Samsung Galaxy S3 would receive his well-deserved update to Android 4.4 KitKat in the standard version GT-I9300 - after the former flagship is still extremely popular. About four weeks ago Samsung confirmed finally that the top smartphone will no longer be served by 2012 with the most recent Android. Apparently they had in South Korea other plans, because with the Galaxy S3 Neo an almost identical smartphone with the latest Android version has just been officially unveiled.


The reason for the set software support of the primordial Galaxy S3 Samsung called the insufficient memory - however could prove resourceful developers, that 1GB of memory for KitKat and TouchWiz sufficient; Custom ROMs like CyanogenMod quite apart. The refreshed model comes with 1.5GB therefore, together with the latest TouchWiz interface. The remaining specifications on the data sheet agree, meanwhile, are largely in line: The Super AMOLED display has HD (1,280 x 720 pixels) and measures 4.8 inches diagonally. Inside an unnamed quad-core processor tinkers with a clock rate of up to 1.4 GHz. On the back there is an 8 MP camera, photos up to 1.9 MP front are possible, the expandable via microSD card in the memory can be stored by 16 GB.


The necessary stamina is guaranteed by a 2,100 mAh strong battery, which has found a place in the 132-gram and 8.6 millimeters thick casing. Outwardly, the Galaxy S3 Neo WLAN selectively connects via Bluetooth 4.0, after the n-standard, UMTS HSPA + with up to 21 Mbit / s or NFC - LTE is not on board. Moreover, besides the obligatory A-GPS and Glonass is supported. For wired data transfer is a Micro USB 2.0 port available.

In June, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo should be available, including from the middle of the month at Telekom. Unsubsidized the "new" S3, according to EIA proposes to 259.95 euros. Given the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S3 in similar price ranges is to have (for example ebay) already in the nominally technically superior GT-I9305 version with 2GB of RAM, LTE and the announced KitKat update, we expect to rapidly falling Price from.
