Samsungs's next big smartphone release, the so-called Galaxy S III, may end up challenging the Motorola Droid Razr as the thinnest 4G handset on store shelves when it arrives later this year, according to new reports.
The Galaxy S III, as the next major Samsung Galaxy S phone is expected to be called, will come in at a thickness of about about 7 millimeters, or about 0.27 inch thick, according to a report from South Korea's Electronic Times News translated by the website BGR.
The Droid Razr, which was released in November, is 0.28 inch thick and currently owns the bragging right of thinnest 4G smartphone on the market -- a major marketing point for Motorola.
The Galaxy S II is 8.49-millimeters, or about 0.33 inch thick.
Unnamed sources also told the Electronics Times News that the Galaxy S III will launch in May, which is contrary to earlier rumors of an April release, BGR noted.
