Anonymous 4Chan User Also Talks About The Samsung Galaxy S III

Once again people, I’m not taking this information as true, I just love juicy gossip. Even still, I’d be lying to say it didn’t give me goosebumps. It’s the weekend! Loosen up a bit. Okay, so first off, we know Samsung has been hard at work on the Galaxy S III and they’ve even semi-announced that it will be dropping sometime in 2012. But just how much better could a device get than the Galaxy S II? I mean, you can’t go above 1080p video recording, right? Well, according to anonymous 4chan user, things can get a lot better.

The specifications for the SGSIII are of course subject to change, but are Samsung-developed 2.0GHz quad-core CPU (no codename given), 1.5gb RAM, 32gb internal memory (with sd card slot), and a 4.65 inch screen. A new display called Super AMOLED III is being developed specifically for the phone (SGS had Super AMOLED, SGS II had Super AMOLED Plus, SGS III has Super AMOLED III) with 1280×1024 resolution, giving the phone a ppi of 352, which they emphasized that a 352ppi will make it the highest ppi mobile phone.

It also has a 2250 mAh battery, 10 megapixel camera and is capable of shooting 1080p video at 60 frames per second, and will come with an inbuilt NFC chip. The device is 9mm thick, has a metal and glass body (a really clean, shiny look to it in the pictures), has a 2250mAh battery, 10 megapixel camera and is capable of shooting 1080p video at 60 frames per second.

The reason for no demo phone was that the screen technology was still in the final stages of design and production of them have not started.

The phone will have Androids latest Ice Cream Sandwich software and an all new TouchWiz 5 which has been in co-development with Google during the development of the Galaxy Nexus, so according to the Samsung representatives, it isn’t as “intrusive to Android” as previous TouchWiz versions were. It seems TouchWiz will play a minor role and only have little improvements to ICS. It won’t control the user experience.

One of the reasons why they’re not going with a full TouchWiz experience is for a few reasons, one being that the ICS experience is very user friendly already and also it will also Samsung to update software on their phones at a faster rate than they have in the past.

Okay, this is where things go a little bit into la-la land for me. If there’s anything that questions this “source’s” credibility, it would be this Galaxy S III leak. Let’s pretend what he’s saying is in fact true. With these kind of specs, there would be almost little-to-no room for improvement in say, the Galaxy S IV. And companies are always planning ahead whether that means “leaving room for improvement” or planned obsolescence. Whatever you want to call it. Don’t even get me started on the quad-core processor or the fact that the phone will have a 2250mAh battery, yet still remain 9mm thick. Oh — and this is all going off of his memory which he uses as his excuse for some “inconsistencies.” But what IF everything he said panned out to be true? Time to boomark this post and revisit it in a few months.

    So this is going to have almost a square shaped screen according to the aspect ratio from 1280-1024? I think not. I call fake.

    • technohead95

      I’m also in doubt about the authenticity of this but it’s worth pointing out that not all displays have square dimensioned pixels. Some have rectangular shaped pixels.

  • Vampirelinosd

    I hope this fool is right.I have the fascinate now and will probably wait up for this puppy. The galaxy s 2 did not come out for verizon so I’ll hold up for this, just please make it a 5.5 inch screen . My manly hands cannot handle apple like petite phones

    agree fake .. to large of a leap to be anything coming to market … maybe 2 yrs or so..and agree a square screen LOL

  • whoisyasin

    Everything sounds about right EXCEPT, the screen resolution makes no sense what soever. Hopefully he is fully right about that nexus for Verizon, because we need a pure android phone ASAP!

  • EfraaFlores

    As a 4chan user,I really doubt any of this is true. Since most, if not all, the things posted there are fake. And trust me I would know.. :o

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Was it…. you? O_o

  • BenCaldwell5

    His Nexus Prime rumors seemed pretty consistent, so he could be right on this. The screen resolution is the only thing I’m skeptical about, but it’s pretty much in concrete that it will be at least 720p. It’s going to be a beast of a phone no matter how you look at it. Now all I need is for it to come to Verizon in spring sometime when my upgrade comes (fat chance).

  • kytz

    Anonymous 4chan user is the most unreliable source I can think of.

    And how does a “1280×1024 resolution” camera yield 1080p video?!?

    • http://profiles.google.com/soundman1024 Jeff Meyer

      1280×1024 is the purported resolution of the screen..which is 4×3.
      The camera is completely separate from the screen. That said there’s plenty of 1280×1080 video being edited right now that’s destined for a tv set near you. Video can utilize non-square pixels.

    • technohead95

      I believe the 1280 x 1024 is talking about the screen resolution. 1080p video is referring to video recording capability.

  • Zdeněk Vaník

    2250 mAh battery = fake

  • andrew__des_moines

    The 1500 mAh battery in my Captivate is less than half the height of the phone. 2250 sounds very reasonable; just the added with would probably bring it up to 1900 or so. Not to mention, the Galaxy phones are almost too light and a heavier battery will have no negative implications unlike it would in an HTC.

    • Zomby2D

      Samsung has already released a 2000 mAh battery kit with extended cover that add a mere 1.5 mm to the phone tickness. I think they can definitely manage 2250 mAh if the spend any time improving battery technology. Heck, I had 2500 mAh rechargeable AA batteries for a while in my camera.

  • http://twitter.com/Rafyvitto Rafyvitto

    Cough! cough!* fake…

  • EricHeymann

    Now if he said the next gs3 will have a 2ghz dual-core with a 4.65″ screen with a 300 ppi resolution and 1gb ram and a 1950mAH battery….hmm perhaps

  • Vampirelinosd

    Dont blamed me, blame retarded swype on this shit

    • http://twitter.com/droid_73 Dwayne Wilkinson

      You know you can change the default keyboard… or download one that works from the market, right? :D

  • Grayden

    4.65″ screen? yeah, count me out immediately.

    I just got the GSII, and its taking some getting used to a 4.5″ screen, up from my Pre’s micro size 3.1″ screen.

    Still not getting the love affair with screens bigger than 4″

    • Croak

      I’m used to the 4.3″ on my I9100 now, coming from the 4″ I9000, but it’s still a bit awkward at times trying to operate one-handed. Had an Infuse for a brief while, and the size (and lack of pixel density) had me back on my regular SGS in short order.

  • SuperTomcat

    Samsung has not the actual technology to make a Full HD 4.65″ SuperAMOLED screen, at least not now.
    The actual 5.5 Generation AMOLED factory will get in on the phase II production in December 2011. Until July 2012 Samsung won´t use the new Laser modeling pattern for AMOLED technology and the actual FMM for it is not capable to make density higher than 220ppi.
    Samsung is not developing a camera phone sensor of 10MPx, only a new improved 8MPx BSI sensor 1/3.2″ is under development and if Samsung planes to put a 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor on GS 3, it could be 12 or 16MPx.

    That is FAKE…

  • http://twitter.com/anakin78z Jens Zalzala

    just doing some math here… if we assume a 16:9 ratio, then a width of 1024 would give us a height of 1820… so it’s possible he got the 2 and the 8 mixed up.
    However, at a ppi of 352, we end up with a screen size just short of 6 inches, so that’s unlikely. If we stick to a screen size of 4.65 inches, and go with this resolution, the ppi would be 449. Lovely, but overkill.
    Anyone up for a 6 inch Galaxy III? Pretty sure a 6 incher was the only thing missing from their lineup.

    Edit: If we assume a more likely resolution of 1280×768 (maintaining the current aspect ratio), the ppi for a 4.65 inch phone is 315. Respectable, but not enough to claim the highest ever.
    To reach a ppi of 352, the screen size at that resolution would be 4.24. Might be close enough to the current 4.3 inch screen (of the non-sprint version) to seem realistic!

  • technohead95

    I remember similar such exaggerated specifications for the Samsung Galaxy S2 before that was officially announced (http://www.intomobile.com/2010/07/05/rumor-samsung-galaxy-s2-i9200-android-3-0-4-3-inch-1280×720-screen-2-ghz-cpu-1-gb-ram/). The rumour above for SGS3 is no different. While I do hope it is that good, I doubt it will be. I do not think it will be a quad core chip, I think the screen resolution will be a lot lower, and the battery capacity will also be lower. However, I do think the processor, screen resolution and battery will be an improvement over the SGS2. The rest of the spec is fairly believable. Time will tell.

    • http://techdomino.com/ Lucian Armasu

      If it’s mid 2012, then it’s not so crazy to think it’s a quad core 2 Ghz. Even the quad core 2 Ghz (or so) Kal-El for phones should be out about then. Qualcomm’s quad core 2.5 Ghz Krait should be out in mid summer/early fall, too.

  • monlosez

    I think I’ll start with the Galaxy S IV rumor.

    • http://twitter.com/anakin78z Jens Zalzala

      Dual quad core cpu, Samsungs version of a color e-ink screen with Super amoled illumination for night time, flexible display and phone (feel free to drop it… it’s sleak rubber body & edges will bend and not break), wireless charging within 30 feet of charging stations. Instead of buttons it has touch areas which can be controlled by gestures (hold for power button, slide up/down for volume). Android buttons are actually a small touch screen which is context sensitive (menu button only appears when menu option exists, home, back & search buttons rotate with screen and can be themed. When main screen is off, notifications show up in this area and dragging them up to the screen unlocks the phone and acts on the notification).

      I got a demo of it yesterday and was pretty blown away. Not sure I remember all the facts right though…

      • lugnut667

        You forgot to mention these specs:

  • JulianZHuang

    I hope it still fit inside my pocket haha.

  • Andr3ww

    You know how I know this is fake? How can it be running ICS when it’s not even done yet. I doubt Samsung would waste their time making Touchwiz 5.0 over an unfinished version of Android. Unless ICS is finished already.

    • Zomby2D

      Considering ICS is supposed to be out next month, I’D say the UI should be pretty much finished by now.

    The only thing we know for certain here is that Anonymous 4Chain is terrible at Photoshop.

  • Jeff432

    Both rumors from this guy is FAKE.

    The Nexus Prime rumor is easier to determine that it’s fake. With that rumor, there’s totally no way that it’ll be Android 2.4, as Google has already said that it’ll unite the 3 versions of Android.

  • http://techdomino.com/ Lucian Armasu

    Galaxy Note has 5.3″ and a 2500 mAh battery. Atrix has 4″ and a 1930 mAh battery. I don’t think it’s that unbelievable for a 4.65″ phone to have a 2250 mAh battery. The only thing that sounds really weird from those specs is the resolution.

  • No_Nickname90

    Obviously Fake!! For starters, Google is already talking about the next upgrade from ICS, which is going to be Jelly Bean. :P

    The fact that the person said it would have ICS is what caught me off guard. I mean, the phone will obviously have the newest update which would be Jelly Rolls. Dugh!! :P

    And apparently the screen resolution is off; which that has been stated by the many users. Hmm…

    I just know the 2.0 processor is true since Samsung did say they were working on that.

  • Ash_Ketchum1

    It’s a trap!

  • DYNK

    Quite realistic imo
    Samsung always leaves the Galaxy S series for the best.
    Look how Nexus S got pwnd by Galaxy S II. Sure we’re all excited for the Nexus Prime….but we already know Galaxy S III will kill in a few months time.
    Samsung has the tech and resources which no other company has (inc Apple)
    Super Amoled will make leaps and bounds

    • JBrowne1012

      Nexus S didn’t just come out that is not a fair comparison a fair comparison wold be the original galaxy S of which in this case would prove that wrong as the nexus S was what the original GS should have been concave samoled screen actually slightly better ppi ratio had an ffc and sprint 4G backed by google servers.

  • crankyd00d

    Fake. There’s no such thing as 1080p/60. TVs wouldn’t accept that signal.

  • zeth006

    I’d say the information is credible. This is consistent with how they’ve carried out the Galaxy S and the S2. The quad-core ARM cpu is definitely on the mark–we knew ARM licensees would be moving to quad-core as far back as a year ago. It’s also on Texas Instruments’ map. Go Google it. I expect the GPU to be even more powerful than the current MALI that comes with the Exynos chip. The Super AMOLED III display is probably a minor upgrade over the current Super AMOLED Plus which is already gorgeous!

    One thing: Samsung needs to make sure its Exynos CPU’s modem chip is able to accommodate higher theoretical LTE/HSPA speeds so it doesn’t have to keep on buying chips from other chip sellers.
