So Samsung wasn’t lying when it said it wouldn’t unveil its long-awaited Galaxy S III in March; we’re now a week into April and we’re still waiting for the device. But according to Samsung China’s president, it will arrive this month. And when it does, it could be sporting a stunning 4.65-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with a 1280×720 resolution.
That’s according to a rumor originating from Korean site DailyD this morning, and it’s certainly not one we’re going to quickly dismiss.
After all, Samsung will be expected to improve upon the display that featured in its original Galaxy S II, which was a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus panel. And with a similar 4.65-inch screen already available from the Galaxy S II HD and the Galaxy Nexus, it’s likely some users would be disappointed if it doesn’t appear in the Galaxy S III.
According to the report, Samsung Mobile Display has begun production on the display, which could be the first non-Pentile smartphone display from Samsung’s OLED arm to feature a high-definition resolution. With a pixel density of 316 ppi, it wouldn’t be too far off the iPhone’s smaller Retina display.
It shouldn’t be long before Samsung finally unveils the Galaxy S III, which, according to AsiaE, is already in testing with Korean carriers. The company is reportedly pushing to have the device approved quicker than the standard two months, but because it’s one of the first smartphones to team a quad-core processor with an LTE radio, it’s taking a little while longer than expected.
