According to reports, the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S3 may sport a 4.65-inch AMOLED Plus touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels. This means that we might just see the Galaxy S2’s successor sporting a display the size of the Galaxy Nexus.
Although the S3 and Nexus is said to sport the same screen size, according to DDaily, a Korean site, they will not sport exactly the same type of display. They say the S3 will sport a Super AMOLED Plus display just like the Galaxy S2.
This means that the S3’s display may be similarly sized and sport the same resolution compared to the Nexus, but will offer better picture quality thanks to its Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen.
Previous reports claimed that the S3 would sport a 1080p display, but if this report is true, it looks like we’ll be getting a 720p display instead. Of course, since Samsung has not revealed the specs of its new flagship, take this information with a pinch of salt. We’ll get to see once and for all if the rumours are true when Samsung officially unveils the smartphone sometime in the first half of 2012.
Do you think Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S3 sporting a 720p Super AMOLED display or a 1080p display? Give us your thoughts.
There have been a number of rumours surrounding the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S3, the successor of the highly popular Galaxy S2. These rumours revolve around the smartphones processor and casing. Now, current rumours have everything to do with the phone’s display. According to a report, the S3 will sport an AMOLED retina display similar to the display on the iPhone 4S.
The new comes to us courtesy of Digitimes. The website claims Korean panel manufacturers are heavily investing in the development of AMOLED panels. The word on the street is larger displays with higher resolutions will be the standard on a number of smartphones this 2011. This includes the Galaxy S3.
If we add this rumour to the list of rumours we’ve hear, the Galaxy S3 will sport a quad-core processor, a ceramic casing, and a 4.6 inch AMOLED display with a pixel density of 319 ppi, which is just 7 ppi short of the iPhone 4S’ 326 ppi on its 3.5 inch retina display. Although 7 ppi less compared to the new iPhone, you’ll never notice the difference since the naked eye can’t see pixels this small.
If the rumour is true, then this would mean that the Galaxy S3 will give the iPhone a run for its money. Well, not unless the iPhone 5 comes up with something significantly better.

Is Samsung planning to launch another version of the 7 inch Galaxy Tab? According to rumors, the Korean tech giant may be adding an AMOLED display to its first tablet. Since Samsung showed off a 7 inch OLED touch screen back earlier this March, is is safe to presume that they will be outfitting the original Tab with a more high-quality display?
Despite the rumor, Samsung is scheduled to launch a number of new devices within the year. This might prevent the launch of the 7 inch AMOLED Galaxy Tab.
They said, “Some media have been reporting that Samsung is preparing to launch nine new smartphones and two new tablet devices. While Samsung is continuously working on new devices for our customers, the details being cited are not accurate in this case.”
“We appreciate the interest in our upcoming mobile devices and will share more information once it’s available.”
This might put a stop to the rumor, but let’s take a look at the Galaxy Tab P62000’s spec sheet. It will be powered by Android’s tablet-optimized Honeycomb. It will sport a 7 inch Super AMOLED display with 1024 x 600 pixels of resolution. It will also have a 3 MP primary camera and a 2 MP secondary camera. It will come in a 3G version.
What’s really exciting about this rumored tablet is its processor. Rumor has it that the slate will come packed with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor under the hood just like that on the Samsung Galaxy S2. Furthermore, it will come with 1 GB of RAM for added performance.
Although Samsung released a statement that seems to quell the rumor, it still may be possible for the Korean tech giant to release this powerful 7 inch AMOLED tablet.
