BGR claims to have the scuttlebutt on the specs for the Samsung Galaxy S III. While this report needs to be placed firmly in “rumour” camp, we can’t help but be excited about a beautiful HD display.
While all we know for sure is that Samsung won’t be announcing the phone this week at the Mobile World Congress, the leaked specs reported by BGR contain a mix of surprises with more or less what we would expect:
1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor
4.8-inch “full HD” 1080p resolution with 16:9 aspect ratio display
A 2-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera
The biggest surprise has to be the 4.8-inch, 1080p display, which would make the Galaxy S III a high-resolution Android cousin to HTC’s massive Titan. It’s certainly a big form factor increase from the Samsung Galaxy S II’s 4.3-inch, 400×800 screen. Given that this is a Galaxy S, the 1.5GHz, quad-core processor isn’t shocking. Couple the processor with the industry-leading display, and the Samsung Galaxy S III should be ready for the most taxing multimedia you can throw at it. [BGR]
