The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 could be the first smartphone to include a full HD 1080p display.
According to a recent list of specs for the device released by BGR earlier this week, the Galaxy S3 will be the world's first 1080p smartphone featuring a 4.8-inch display with 1080p resolution at a 16:9 aspect.
Other specs listed in this BGR report include a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, an 8-megapixel rear shooter, 4G LTE, Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich OS, and a ceramic case.
Samsung is expected to unveil the follow up to the Samsung Galaxy S2 sometime around the summer of 2012.
The Samsung Galaxy S3's debut and availability will be much closer together than the S2's were, according to a recent announcement made by the company. Analysts originally thought Samsung would unleash the S3 at this year's MWC, however that was never the electronics giant's intention.
With the hype for the device building up, rumors have been spreading over specs and features to be included on the smartphone.
Here are some of the other popular rumors making their rounds in the tech world regarding the Samsung Galaxy S3.
For starters, the smartphone could be one of the first handsets to introduce a 3D screen. The rumor states that Samsung may be equipping the device to view video in 3D. It also might include Gorilla Glass 2, a virtually indestructible material used to keep the display from shattering.
Samsung has not announced any official release date for the Galaxy S3. But the company did mention that it would not be unveiled at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The price of this smartphone should fall between $199 and $299 with a new two-year agreement in compliance with the Galaxy S2's price range. It will most likely be available on AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.
