Samsung Galaxy S III Details

Let the new phone envy begin, Dual core is so last year.(literally) Everyone who buys a phone and immediately wants a new one, knows that quad core is the emerging hotness. With the introduction of the Tegra 3 powered Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201 debuting first, quad core now seems to be the new standard.

While the GSIII wont be running a Tegra chip with its secret 5th core, it will have a 4core version of the Samsung Exynos processor running at 1.5Ghz. It seems to be a newer more powerful version that runs in current SII’s. So if you like the SII but wish it would load angry birds faster, you’re in luck.

Another interesting bit is that it will feature a ceramic case. Now before you complain about how you have no coffee mugs left because they are shatter magnets, its not that kind of ceramic. Think track day ceramic brakes rather than pottery barn #1 dad mug.

The breakdown as known so far:

– 1.5Ghz quad core processor
– 2 megapixel front camera and 8 megapixel rear camera
– 4G LTE support
– 4.8-inch screen with 1080p resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio display
– Android 4.0 and it’s delicious name

There is no solid word on what carrier it will be available for yet but its its a safe bet that it will be on you provider. Expect more info when the official announcement is made.
