Samsung Galaxy S III to have 1080p screen, quad-core processor

Samsung logoSamsung has no plans to officially announce the Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress this year, but information on the handset is trickling out anyway, according to Boy Genius Report. Among the phone's more interesting features are a quad-core processor, 1080p screen, and a ceramic case.

The successor to the universally beloved Galaxy S and Galaxy S II will have a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor, the same make as in certain versions of the S II. The phone will have a 4.8-inch 1080p 16:9 screen, 0.15 inches larger than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Without a reference for scale in the mockup above, the display's margins are small enough for it to look like a flat panel TV.

An 8-megapixel camera will adorn the back and a 2-megapixel camera will be embedded in the front of the Galaxy S III. The handset will have a “ceramic case" and will run Android 4, though no details yet on whether Samsung plans to skin the OS with a new version of its TouchWiz. Android 4 has already undergone a skinning job from HTC's Sense with its new line of Android 4 smartphones.

The Galaxy S III will be 4G LTE-capable, according to BGR, but a carrier has not been specified. Information on the launch date, likewise, remains murky, but we wouldn't expect it much later than the second quarter, and certainly no later than the third.
