After the announcement of the Galaxy Note 2, and taking over a fair share of market with its previous Galaxy devices, Samsung is now rumored to be testing an entirely new device that will have 3GB of memory.
A new smartphone from Samsung has surfaced on the Internet that has a built-in memory of 3GB, and is a prototype under testing. The source, SamMobile, also confirmed that the device, with a label on the phone that says "3Gb."
"A few days ago we received from a anonymous tipster a picture (see below) with some interesting information were Samsung is working on for next year. According to our source Samsung is working on a device with 3GB of RAM," stated the SamMobile report.
However, the logic of Samsung working on device with 3GB of RAM has been met with surprise, with the report averring why users would require 3GB when 1GB suffices.
What's more, it has also been stated that the company is about to change the design of the new device and is all set to follow a button-less trend. Samsung, in the past, has been rumored to reveal a smartphone in the future that would arrive without a potential home button.
"Samsung is doing some tests to make a transition to go buttonless for their smartphones," stated the SamMobile report
Nonetheless, not much is known about the device. It is speculated that the device's prototype is currently in works for a possible 2013 release, or later. It's also too early to tag the device as Samsung's currently rumored Galaxy S4, or the next Galaxy Nexus.
Samsung was also previously rumored to present the highly anticipated Galaxy S4 with a 13-megapixel camera. The information arrived after the Korean media stated that a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with 4208 x 3120 pixels resolution, which was originally meant to be used first in the Galaxy S3 and/or Samsung Note 2, could now finally arrive with the imminent Galaxy S4.
It remains to be seen if the device, whenever it hits the market, will actually arrive with 3GB memory, especially since the current standard for Android smartphones still remains 1GB with the maximum being 2GB.
