A leaked User Agent Profile (UAProf) is one of the least reliable sources of accurate information about an upcoming mobile device. For example, the leaked UAProf for the Galaxy Nexus
claimed that it had a WVGA (480x800) screen, which was obviously quite untrue. That said, the new UAProf leak for the Samsung Galaxy S III looks a bit more realistic, although not 100% believable.
The leaked document lists the screen resolution of the Galaxy S III as 1024x600. On first glance, that seems like a resolution high enough to be real, and the 16:9 aspect ratio is very interesting as well. A true 16:9 ratio on the screen would likely make for a slightly more elongated form factor than what we normally see on smartphones. The trouble we have is that the resolution doesn't hit HD capability.
Sure, it's certainly possible that Samsung would forgo HD if it were really necessary. But, Samsung probably really wants to be able to push HD in its marketing scheme for the phone, so that's why it's hard to believe it wouldn't be an HD screen. The screen may very well have a 16:9 aspect ratio, but we're pretty sure that ultimately the phone will have a 720p screen.
Still, even if this is accurate, the roundup of specs we have so far for the Galaxy S III would give it a 1024x600 screen (likely Super AMOLED Plus), a quad-core Exynos processor, 2 GB of RAM
, an LTE radio, and an 8 MP rear camera, all in a 7mm thick frame
. Not a bad roundup.
