Okay, this will be the last of the Galaxy S III rumors for the night, I promise. If you were wondering if Samsung would opt for a new, more advanced dual-core Exynos processor in the global version Galaxy S III, or go with a quad-core variant, apparently, folks at The Verge got the answer today from their sources. Looks like Samsung will, in fact, go with the quad-core Exynos for the next iteration of the Galaxy S series letting the world know that more is better (or at least playing into that stigma). According to the source we can expect, “superlaxative benchmarks” or something to that degree. Keep in mind, it’s still very possible that Samsung could opt for different processors based on regional carrier compatibility, similar to what HTC did with the One X to get it working properly on AT&T’s 4G LTE network.

And, while there’s been some talk that the Samsung “Galaxy S III” title hasn’t been officially set it stone, one of our readers did a little sleuthing around and found an interesting late night tidbit on Samsung’s official site. Seems if you jump to http://www.samsung.com/galaxysIII the URL will be formatted and forwarded to a new address, in which the URL will eventually take you to the typical “Page Not Found” message. What’s interesting is that if you try something a little more crazy and totally off the wall, like http://www.samsung.com/galaxysyomomma you’ll notice that a new page is present but different from the previous one. No formatting. No forwarding. Nothing.

We’ve seen this little technique of vanity URL’s used in the past when trying to figure out if a device has been officially confirmed. Yes, I know this isn’t much to go on — if really anything at all — but at the very least we know Samsung is clearly considering going with the Galaxy S III title, and even has a URL already set up for it. Still, it’s very possible they could go with “the next Galaxy” or even “Galaxy III,” all will be revealed come May 3rd. In the meantime, sweet GSIII dreams, my friends.

Thanks, Scott!
