Samsung Galaxy S III: 1080p display, quad-core, ceramic BGR has posted the alleged specs of the upcoming Galaxy S III, and they are impressive, to say the least.

The BGR specs:

-1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor
-4.8-inch "full HD" 1080p resolution with 16:9 aspect ratio display
-Edge-to-edge display
-A 2-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera
-Ceramic case
-4G LTE
-Android 4.0

S2 came out in spring of 2011 but it took forever for Sammy to get a version compatible with american carriers and assemble all these variants.

Regardless, I was kinda hoping for these high end phones to stay between 4-4.3, I guess 4.5 for the Galaxy S series but damn 4.8 seems big for non baggy pants,

I'll fit a 4.8" in the skinnies... Probably won't be my next phone anyways though cause I'm too broke (thanks McMaster). Forever stuck with my measly 4.3", single core HD2 :(

I completely missed the 1080p resolution. While thats nice on paper, I'll wait to see until the release. Im strongly considering this as my next phone.

This should be easy to carry around because if these rumors are true and it has an edge to edge display there will be no bezel so the phone would be smaller than others with a bezel, so it might end up feeling like the G-nexus in the hand. What is certain is that its smaller than the note and I don't mind the size of the note (call me crazy)


XXYYQQOO!!! Yeah WELCOME TO JAMROCK
