i hope they follow Motorola raza maxx example and give the GS3 a 3000 mah and above battery life that would be the phone to beat

if a beast of a phone like this comes out in april it's bye bye every other android phone maker...I mean 1080p screen I highly doubt that even PenTile 1080p is highly unlikely, but we will see, it's samsung we're talking about so everything is possible...

Having hard time to believe a 4.8" 1080p large scale production display is possible today...but if it is...May be I'll be one of those who own...GalaxyS I, II, III at same time :)

I would really like you to explain to me what is the difference between a-9 and a-15 because I see you have something against a-9. And explain it to me in professionally pls so you convince me that you know what you are talking about and not just bashing a-9 because you heard somewhere that a-15 is better than a-9

Cortex a15 is 40% faster than the Cortex a9 at the same clock speed and number of cores. Manufactured on 32/28 nm process vs 45nm process for the a9. This will clear your doubts.http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=_kgPlsczhZg

I know the answer but it just seemed to me that he said it just because he heard it somewhere and doesn't know s**t about it that's why i asked HIM

btw tegra uses 2 cores when browsing so hat is not some comparison but it does show that a-15 is faster than a-9, generaly a-15 is better than a-9 because of number of things not just power

just one more thing, no matter how good a-15 is, dual core a-15 just cant be better than quad a-9 in some aspects, like gaming, heavy multitasking, etc but i will wait till the Q3 when hopefully there will be a-15 quads to get new phone...

nice specs... I remember when the same were said about the Nexus... and is going to be outsold by the Note... please.. it will not be 1080p screen.. cut it out.. and yes it will have bezel.. carriers needed to put their brand... specially on a monster phone... so just wait for the official specs to come out... and please.. don't salivate over rumors..

apple fans salivated over ip5 rumours that turned out not to be true...let samsung fans do the same,agree 1080p as much i would like,not going to happen but i do think we will 720p amoled plus screen and thats all i want a long with either the 32nm dual/quad core..i think when rumours say bezelless,i think they mean the side bezels,there will always be bezel on the top and bottom for mic,camera etc

This is crazy I just bought the Galaxy Nexus, now the Galaxy S III, this is crazy how fast these new phones are coming out. I hope Verizon has a trade in program LOL

I'm with you on the nexus. Love the hell out of it, but if Verizon gets this ON TIME this Galaxy Nexus has got to go. Quad core exynos? 1080p Super Amoled? You had me at Galaxy lol.

Remember... don't buy it when it first comes out. There will be 1 or 2 better versions of it a month or 2 later.

I hope not... I hate a lot of phones have a little brother with something slight better feature. Well, I guess the SGS2 on AT&T did have the skyrocket pretty shortly after.

Hopefully Samsung will utilize the new Gorilla Glass 2 (thinner and stronger than the original Gorilla Glass) as well as nano-coating technology to make it waterproof too!!! If they do...game over!!!

Samsung has a joint venture with Corning, the company that makes it. It will definitely have good glass, whether it be the Gorilla glass 2 or something better and not named/sold to competitors.

Would like to see Samsung confirm some of this. If it is truly going to be released in April, then they should be pumping it up officially very soon. Samsung knows how to do high end smartphone better than anyone right now. These specs are monster, and any other manufacturer I wouldn't buy it. But, Sammy? I am ready to believe.

I really like the specs of the phone and it sounds great! I really hope they keep the looks of touchwiz similar to stock ics and only add what truly will add to the experience, not put random stuff that has no worth and makes in more confusing *cough* Sense *cough*

Please Verizon, don't screw this one up. You already did a horrible job acquiring the Galaxy Note. Please don't screw this up.
