Samsung to update the Galaxy S III with a better screen and battery - read the full textSamsung might be working on a refreshed Galaxy S III edition with a better display, a bigger battery and wireless charging. Reportedly, the new battery capacity will be 2400 mAh - 14% more powerful than the original unit. There is no info on what "better display" means, while the wireless...

A Samsung Galaxy SIII Plus would be a nice upgrade to those who cannot afford or unable to get their hands on an SIV.

Please Samsung...hurry up already!!!

This is exact story from others and looks like it came from a Tweet... but if true, my thoughts on Samsung:
Wireless Charging will be in the New S3???? What???/ The old S3 has the Wireless Charging Hardware Built in it right Now...Either this story is wrong and writer is unaware of what Induction Charging is,
because there is no way possible for the Refreshed S3 to have the ability to wireless charge without the receiver coil being in the Back Cover, which is what the S3 Owners are still waiting on from Samsung.
Aftermarket kit anymore??? The Kit (which is the back cover with receiver coil built into it) is just a Replacement back cover to receive charge from the charger pad. Cover similar to the Limited number that Verzion stores had a S3 release(Qi standard which Verzion demanded Samsung to Build theirs Different then all other Carriers to make profits from their current wireless charging hardware.
Now if the story meant to say the Cover would be Included this time around, Then that is just down right wrong, evil, and current S3 owners of the World need to make sure this is not the way a Huge company should do to their customers, because S3 was promised the back cover 2 months after release then postponed again and again. AND HERE THE S4 IS CLOSE TO RELEASE(WITH THE PROMISE OF WIRELESS CHARGING) AND NO S3 BACK COVER THAT WE PAID FOR.

I notice my comment had been removed...so... There a company making phone accessories. You can google 'sun global'. They also make batteries which is better than the original one. Imagine your s3 with 2100 mAh battery, they made a 3000 mAh battery wi.

They should consider designing the new batteries the same size as that of 2100mAH so that we old faithful S3 users can also buy a new battery and replace it in our devices. Hope somebody from Samsung mobile reads this. :P

Imagine your s3 with 2100 mAh battery, they made a 3000 mAh battery with the exact size and thickness as the original one. Note 2 with 3650 mAh, S2 with 1850 mAh. Think about it

Wait, so what if the S IV which looks so much like the S III is actually the new S III. Samsung could've done it to keep the device undercover while also unveiling a brand new product at the same time. Wow, this is getting interesting.
