It is no secret that Apple currently have patents pertaining to liquid metals and in particular the materials use in the construction of mobile phones so do not be surprised if this is one rumour about the new phone that proves to be correct.
It looks as though the Apple iPhone 5 may not be the only handset that uses liquid metal in its construction as Samsung are also looking to use the same type of material on their new Galaxy S3 handset. With several major smartphone manufacturers offering very similar technical specification on their devices the design of the phone is becoming one of the most vital aspects. Apple have always been renowned for their ground breaking styling and Samsung will be keen to ensure that their technically superior phone can match their biggest rivals when it comes to design. Samsung are holding a major event on May 3rd where it is expected that the Galaxy S3 will be unveiled. We will probably have to wait until the end of the summer before we hear such news about the iPhone 5 but certainly by the time autumn arrives we will have had a chance to see both of these devices in the flesh.
The use of new materials on the iPhone 5 is no surprise as Apple attempt to give the handset an edge over its competitors. Given the success of the Samsung Galaxy S2 it is also no shock that the manufacturers are trying to compete with Apple in this area rather than focusing on more common designs that are offered by numerous other phone manufacturers.
In 2011 the Samsung Galaxy S2 was without doubt one of the best phones to be launched by any manufacturer. The model received some excellent reviews and went on to win a number of prestigious awards. Sales for this model were also impressive with over 20 million handsets being sold globally. Thanks to the success of this phone its successor, the Samsung Galaxy S3, has become one of the most eagerly anticipated phone launches of 2012 and new details have surfaced about the exact date when we can expect to see this new device.
It is widely believed that we will see the Samsung Galaxy S3 officially launched on May 3rd 2012. It seems as though months of rumours and speculation about the specification of this model will come to an end when Samsung unveil this exciting new device. A number of experts and publications within the mobile phone world have received invites to an official event on this date where they are asked to "come and meet the new Galaxy". Although the invite does not specify that this will be the new S3 handset it is hard to envisage Samsung going to such lengths for the launch of any other product. The event is being held at Earls Court in London and will have the attention of technology fans everywhere who will be keen to see what is likely to become one of 2012's leading phones. If the model is unveiled as expected then we could realistically see the device in stores within a matter of days after the event.
