There are still three months remaining before we say goodbye to 2012, but many of us wonder what Samsung will be offering to consumers for the year 2013. Its three top-selling devices are the Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Nexus; the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is expected to follow in its predecessor’s footsteps once released next month. But there are already a few rumors and ideas concerning each device’s successors, which may possibly be called the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Nexus 3.
As Samsung had come out in the losing end following its patent tussle with Apple, Inc., there is a good chance the South Korean company will take steps to redesign its gadgets to avoid further incurring Cupertino’s wrath. Even the Google Android operating system may undergo some changes, but the most probable changes to occur would relate to the design of the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Nexus 3. A host of new features may be introduced for each device, features that would be as far away as possible from existing Apple technology. A combination of a new design and innovative new features could be helpful as Samsung tries to create unique devices that won’t likely be singled out by Apple for allegedly infringing on patents.
Basic specifications most people would like to see on each device generally include a 12-megapixel rear camera or better and the latest Android operating system. The camera is an especially sore point for Galaxy Nexus users, as the device shipped with a 5-megapixel back camera at a time when 8 megapixels was becoming the norm for high-end smartphones. And the ability to surf the Internet or stream videos with 4G LTE speeds on a quad-core phone would also be very welcome. Rumors suggest that will be the case with the Galaxy Note 2. As the American Galaxy S3 came with a dual-core instead of a quad-core processor, it wouldn’t hurt to see the Galaxy S4 launched as a quad-core LTE device.
