Specs for the Samsung Galaxy S III, the rumored successor to one of the most popular Android devices to date, have been obtained by Boy Genius Report.
Sources are reporting the upcoming device will feature a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor, which is a faster clockspeed than my 13-inch MacBook Air. A spacious 4.8-inch 1080p HD display will consume the front of the phone, and with a 16:9 aspect ratio, it’ll be stunning for entertainment. Above that, a 2MP camera for video calling and of course a higher quality 8MP shooter on the back. Obviously, the Galaxy S III will be equipped with 4G LTE and run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
As for design, the case is said to be made of durable ceramic, a unique departure from the usual plastic we see on most Samsung devices. The phone in general will probably be quite bulky to accommodate the large display.
Samsung sadly confirmed earlier this month that we wouldn’t hear anything about the Galaxy S III at MWC, nor would we hear about it at its special March 22nd press event coming up. Instead, hopes remain high for a May unveiling.
We reported last week that Samsung was supposedly working on creating a Galaxy phone dubbed the “Galaxy B” that would feature the first ever edge-to-edge display, a tough feat to accomplish. Albeit that name is different from the Galaxy S III, it would make sense for Samsung to put such a beautiful display on its flagship device. Plus, at 4.8 inches, Samsung is going to have to figure out how to make the handset comfortable to hold.
