By now, most of you already have your calendars marked for May 3rd. That’s the day the Galaxy S III, Samsung’s best kept secret, will be unveiled unto the world. As that date draws nearer, the folks at BGR are claiming another “breaksclusive,” this time revealing some of the alleged specs we can look forward to from Samsung’s next flagship.
According to sources, the GSIII will be available in both a 16GB and 32GB versions, feature the rumored quad-core Exynos processor with LTE compatibility and will also — get this — come with a 1080p HD display. This is the second exclusive from BGR where they mentioned the 1080p display and I wouldn’t take that spec with anything more than a grain of salt. While manufacturers love to best other OEM’s devices when it comes to specs, at the same time, they also have to give themselves some elbow room to grow for the next year’s model. Leap frogging over a 720p HD display when current Galaxy S II’s only feature WVGA, just doesn’t make much sense business wise. I’d be willing to bet a SAMOLED Plus 720p HD display will be the official spec. If I’m wrong on this, I’ll eat my underpants.
It was also said that the Samsung is prepping for a huge marketing push where the Galaxy S III will be featured as the official smartphone of the 2012 Summer Olympics. With the attention of just about every country in the world watching the games, Samsung has also planned for simultaneous launch event for the GS3 to occur in New York (US), Seoul (Korea) and Dubai (somewhere near Florida I believe?). We wont have to wait too much longer to see if these rumors pan out, but just don’t go expecting pink unicorns or else you may end up disappointed.
