Another day, another Samsung Galaxy S III rumor. The image above is floating around the web right now, claiming to be an actual representation of what Samsung’s next flagship will look like, but is it really? We’ll find out in May, and if the picture is to believed then we’ll find out on May 22nd. There’s more though, as always. According to the Korean website Daum, the Galaxy S III will have a 4.8 inch 720p AMOLED display, quad core processor, and 4G LTE. That conflicts with a rumor we posted yesterday that said the Galaxy S III was going to feature a 4.65 inch display, just like the Galaxy Nexus, but without the PenTile subpixel configuration.
Back to the image though, isn’t it pretty? The screen appears to have no bezel. The sides look like they’re made out of metal. The front looks like it’s made out of glass. If any of this is true, it would be a huge departure from the Galaxy S II, which … let’s be frank, didn’t have the best build quality on the planet. There’s something to be said about a device with a little bit of heft to it, and the Galaxy S II was quite the opposite. It was light as a feather.
So now the important question: Should you wait to buy the Galaxy S III or should you just crack open your wallet right now and buy HTC’s One X? That’s an easy one to answer, just wait. We were put in the exact same situation last year when HTC announced the Sensation, which hit the market first, and then Samsung announced the Galaxy S II, which came out a bit later. Those who waited were treated to a better device, and we think the same is going to happen with the Galaxy S III.
That sucks to hear if you’re an HTC fan, but it’s true.
