A few more rumored Galaxy S III specs: Quad-core 1.5Ghz Exynos processor and 1080p HD display

Over the weekend we heard a few juicy rumors about the upcoming Galaxy S III courtesy of BGR, including the 4.8 inch HD display, ceramic casing and simultaneous worldwide launch. Today BGR steps it up and outs a few more details of the Galaxy S II.

According to BGR, here’s the full specs:

  • 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor
  • 4.8-inch “full HD” 1080p resolution with 16:9 aspect ratio display
  • A 2-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera
  • Ceramic case
  • 4G LTE
  • Android 4.0

I don’t think anyone was doubting the quad-core processor, after all Samsung’s quad-core Exynos has been public for some time and 2012 is definitely the year of the quad-core phone. However the real star of the show here is the display, a 4.8 inch unit with 1080p resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio. High end Android devices are just starting to break into 720p territory, and with a full HD resolution, Samsung is sure to be king in that department.

Not much new with the camera size, since apparently it’s not a 12MP camera that we heard rumors about before. But we do expect some extra tricks from Samsung to improve the 8 megapixel camera over the Galaxy S II. The final treat will be the ceramic casing, which is a major departure from Samsung’s love of plastic cases, which often feel cheap compared to other manufacturer’s high-end offerings.

We’ll be sure to report when we hear any other details. The Samsung Galaxy S III is shaping up to be the phone to beat, but with the latest offerings from HTC and other manufacturers, the Android phone specs war is far from over.
