There’s a lot of misinformation on the internet about the Samsung Galaxy S III and we’re just going to contribute to that mess today by linking to some more rumors. First rumor, from a Koren publication called DDaily, is that the Galaxy S III will have a 4.65 inch AMOLED display that pushes 1280 x 720 pixels and doesn’t use the PenTile subpixel configuration. What does that mean in layman’s terms? The Galaxy S III will have an ultra sharp display, text will be smooth as hell, and it’ll make you drool. Second rumor, from another Korean publication called AsiaE, is that local operators are already testing the Galaxy S III. Samsung is a bit worried though, since testing usually takes two months, but they want their new flagship to be out on the market even faster. That would mean that Samsung wants to have the Galaxy S III out by the end of May. Makes sense when you think about it since the Galaxy S II hit the Korean market in late April of last year, then pretty much every European country in May.
So what else do we know about the Galaxy S III? Nothing. We don’t know what it looks like, whether it’ll be a dual core or quad core chip, whether said chip will use ARM’s Cortex A9 or A15 processor, whether they’ll be a 4G LTE version with Samsung’s own modem instead of one from Qualcomm, and the list goes on and on. We’d like to propose a theory however. Call it a gut feeling, but we think Samsung didn’t want to make the Galaxy Nexus the perfect phone. It’s a damn good device, that can’t be denied, but why would Samsung use their best components in a device that doesn’t fully represent their brand?
Look, we’ve been saying this for a while now, but we honestly don’t recommend you buy a smartphone until you at least catch a glimpse of what Samsung has up their sleeve. Then, if you’re not satisfied, buy whatever you were going to buy in the first place.
