Samsung Galaxy S III may be minor update with eye tracking

Android fans were all in a tizzy this week when Samsung said it will reveal the Galaxy S III on May 3, but it may not be the major overhaul they're hoping for. Crave UK has the details from a source.

The Samsung Galaxy S III will be a relatively minor update from the S II, a source in the U.K. telecoms industry has told me, with a speed boost and eye tracking among the upgrades. And it probably won't be called the Galaxy S III.

Rather than go for a complete overhaul, Samsung has apparently opted for an incremental update to the S III. "It'll be like the iPhone 4S was to the 4," says my source, who wished to remain anonymous. He gave no firm word on specs, but said we should look to the HTC One X for what to expect. That has a 1.5GHz quad-core chip with 1GB of RAM and a 4.7-inch screen.
