Samsung Allegedly Testing A Smartphone With 3GB of Memory
The image above shows a device (though multiple instances) which is said to be a prototype under testing. Even though the label on the phone says “3Gb”, the source confirmed to SamMobile that we’re indeed looking at 3GB of RAM. The same source has also claimed that Samsung is about to change the design and follow a button-less trend (finally removing the home button which will appeal to many while others will have their own objections).
Not much else is known. It looks like these prototypes are in testing for a possible 2013 release but whether it is the Samsung Galaxy S IV (at least its internals) or, wishful thinking, the next Galaxy Nexus, is yet unknown. However, it is still not clear what the purpose of that huge amount of memory is; don’t get us wrong, the more RAM the better, but with Android in its current stage even 1GB is more than enough (and the SGSIII as well as the SGNII are just now getting 2GB as standard).
