The South Korean smartphone maker Samsung manufactured three final designs of their flagship phone Galaxy S3 to avoid leaks of the largest selling smartphone.
The ‘powerhouse’ Android 4.0 based smartphone was unveiled last month with a grand launch across the world. The popularity of the phone lead to huge sales and helped Samsung to maintain their world leaders tag, which was gifted to them by the predecessor, Galaxy S2.
The official Samsung blog said, “There were three different prototypes to avoid any design leaks. All were made like final products. This meant making three totally different, continuously changing models in the same time frame. Engineers had to repeat the same process for all three types.”
Samsung confirmed that it had created three ‘final’ models of the hot-selling smartphone to fiercely guard the design, which has in fact been a big USP of the product. The design engineers were strictly instructed to communicate using words even with colleagues and not to share the designs with each other.
The specifications of the Galaxy S3 include quad-core Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a huge 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED with a beautiful 1280 x 720p resolution and 306ppi image density.
It is super slim at 8.6mm thick and weighs only 133g, has a super huge 8-megapixel rear mounted camera to have a 1080p Full HD video recording capability.
