Samsung Galaxy SIII spec leaks includes 1080p display

first_imgSo far during the Mobile World Congress this week, HTC seems to be setting the pace for Android smartphone announcements. Four new handsets have been detailed, all carrying the new HTC One name. One phone we didn’t expect to hear about during MWC, mainly because Samsung said they wouldn’t be talking about it, is the Galaxy SIII. However, someone seems to have leaked the basic spec to BGR, and it looks very impressive (if true).At the heart of the SIII will be a 1.5GHz quad-core Exynos system on a chip, meaning it’s most likely the Exynos 4412, a 32nm ARMv7 chip that can run anywhere from 1.5GHz to 1.8GHz. The SII used a dual-core Exynos 4210 and Mali-400 GPU. For the SIII no specific GPU has been confirmed.A 1.5GHz quad-core chip offers up a lot of performance, but the SIII is going to need it as Samsung has apparently squeezed a 16:9, 1080p display into the unit. It’s no small screen either, measuring a pocket-bulging 4.8-inches.We also know it will ship in a ceramic casing, runs Android 4.0, supports 4G LTE, and includes two cameras: 2MP on the front and 8MP on the back. This is just a rumor for the moment, but if it turns out to be true then the Galaxy SIII certainly sets the standard for Android 4.0 phones this year. The only aspect of this leak that seems a bit strange is the 1080p display. Even HTC only managed to fit a 1280 x 720 display in their newly announced 4.7-inch HTC One X and XL.More at BGR, image by Admost Photo Lablast_img read more
