hopefully the SG3 will have the plus screen, i.e. With true rgb pixels instead of pentile.

The 7" plus and the SGP4"/5" do not have AMOLED screens.
It's the 7.7" tab that has the AMOLED screen, so does the Toshiba 7" Excite.

The Samsung Galaxy S II has a super AMOLED plus screen(true RGB). It would be a step backwards for Samsung to put a pentile screen on the S III.

I would expect the SIII to have super amoled plus, if nothing else to outdo the Galaxy Nexus. I have a feeling that Samsung holds back on the nexus line (pentile screen, no SD) to have something better to offer on the Galaxy line.

Gah, all those Galaxy Tab models are confusing.

So far all the leaks I have seen screams for fake. Even this Vietnamese who posted the video. It screams for fake because Samsung's teased release picture looks different and colors used in the posted are white and blue but all leaks so far spotted as black.

So it looks like Samsung does great job to hide their flagship smartphone and will see if they will manage to hide it till May 3rd.

Ah, the Galaxy S III. We always knew it'd be a keystone among Android smartphones, but according to the AnTuTu benchmark suite, it'll be the one device to rule them all.

And some more info here.

It's a quad-core, with 20% better efficiency than the CPU on the SII.

Quote:
"Already in production the Exynos 4 Quad is scheduled to be adopted first into Samsung's next Galaxy smartphone that will officially be announced in May," the horse's mouth reveals. Samsung boasts that the new 32nm 1.4GHz quad-core processor flaunts twice the processing power over its predecessor, thanks to its High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) low-power technology. The net energy savings? About 20-percent.

That Galaxy S III seems nice. But nice enough to upgrade my Dell Streak from 2 years ago? Nah. Wake me up when some real change comes along.

I thought the "Plus" stood for AMOLED. So I stand corrected.

big new processor. http://news.cnet.com/8301-1001_3-574...TopHeadlines.0

"The Exynos 4 Quad integrates four processor cores and is built on the company's cutting-edge 32-nanometer manufacturing process. The chip will run at speeds above 1.4GHz, the company said in a statement today.

As a yardstick, the third-generation iPad uses older 45-nanometer Samsung manufacturing tech and its central processing unit is dual-core (though the graphics processing unit is quad-core). And most multi-core smartphones and tablets on the market today are dual-core."

"Samsung's statement continued. "The...processor is a crucial element in providing our customers with a PC-like experience on mobile devices."

For the longest time, Intel's smartphone and tablet ambitions were but a pipe dream. They're now a reality. Though eminently competent, the mid-range Medfield isn't going to upset the smartphone market too much. But as a harbinger of things to come, it should have ARM vendors scared.

Wonder what it does to battery life.


My current phone (Epic/GalaxyS) is only a single core and I wouldn't call battery life great. Will the 32 nm chips use less power?

Yes, this quad-core should use less power that the single core in your Galaxy S for 2 main reason:

(1) uses 32nm process as opposed to 45nm
(2) cores are dynamically turned on and off as required

For comparison purposes, the Tegra III is more power efficient than the Tegra II, and the same will apply to the Samsung chips.
