Samsung Galaxy S III coming soon: 4.65-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD RGB screen, quad-core, LTE?
The Samsung Galaxy S III is occasionally making the headlines with either a rumor or a mockup pumping up our expectations before the official release, and this here rumor is no exception to that rule. Korean DDaily now reports that the upcoming Galaxy S III will feature a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Moreover, this will be the first non-pentile HD AMOLED screen made by Samsung and this alone is a hugely impressive feat.

Devices like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus also had a 4.65-inch HD display, but there Samsung went with the sub-par pentile technology where instead of the traditional arrangement of red-green-blue pixels (RGB), you get less subpixels and generally a fuzzier image. 

The HTC One X most recently raised the bar very high with its 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 HD screen, which left us impressed but this here S III screen could easily beat it.

The best news however is that the Samsung Galaxy S III should be coming sooner rather than later. AsiaE has learned that Samsung is already testing the device with Korean carriers, and wants it done quicker than usual - in only two months. Allegedly, the carriers will have a hard time fitting into this schedule as the upcoming Android flagship will have a quad-core processor and LTE. But we’d rather wait for those feature, wouldn’t we?

If they delay the release date, the fact being the quad-core and LTE, I would rather wait! 4.8-inch screen is no good??? both galaxy nexus and Galaxy S II HD LTE have that screen :@

rumours are saying 720p and quad core exynos A9 but if samsung surprises us with 1080p and dual core exynos A15 the phones going to be huge success.

It's all about power! To run Android u need that! Or else it's it lag's..... Cause ur running a full OS, unlike apple, Blackberry, windows there all half OS..... It take's 300+ mb of ram to run Android, other's only require 130+ of ram......

Meh. I switched to Samsung from HTC. Sadly, not even the One X has made me consider looking back. I very much prefer a slim and lightweight, but still powerful phone over one that is fat and boring.

Victor, your "should easily beat" implication is ignorant. Super amoled plus is overall inferior to AH-IPS technology (the screen on HTC One x, just with different name) Here, from your very own site: You guys have built up a myth about amoled screens being something uber, and untouchable. While in reality, the Galaxy S3 will likely have a less great screen than some other phones out there.

We will have to wait an see,having used both the Htc one x screen is definitely better than say the galaxy nexus screen by a noticeable bit but Samsung have a knack of producing incredible screens to put on its own flagships

I'm stuck between this and the HTC One X (or the One S if the X really doesn't come to T-Mobile). Sammy has always been reliable in making quality devices and the S II got so much love globally.... imagine what a beast the S III is going to turn out to be. But I love how HTC is redeeming itself with the One series, and the audio boosts from DreBeats technology make my ears happy lol. Decisions, decisions...

Beats Audio is a gimmick. Wait for the S III.

I don't mind waiting, but we're in for quite a wait here in the US. New phone releases are months later than their international versions because US carriers want to add their crap to the devices and make hardware changes.
