OLED Association: 4.6in Super AMOLED HD+ Samsung Galaxy S III coming May

OLED Association: 4.6in Super AMOLED HD+ Samsung Galaxy S III coming MayIn the absence of anything official, the Samsung Galaxy S III rumours continue to flow thick and fast. Last we heard, it supposedly does have a Home button, and a five-column icon layout.

Now OLED Association has dished some dirt on – you guessed it – the Samsung Galaxy S III’s display.

Seemingly the Samsung Galaxy S III will weigh in at 4.6in, which is actually a slither - 0.05in - smaller than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Interesting.

It’ll also rock a Super AMOLED HD+ display, which means controversial Pentile technology won’t be in effect. For an incredibly, erm, thorough debate about Pentile, check out this Mobot discussion.

Finally, OLED Association mentions May as the Samsung Galaxy S III release date. Yeah, that’s pretty much what everyone’s thinking at the mo.

Other rumoured Samsung Galaxy S III specs include a camera in the 8 or 12MP vicinity, with 1080p video capture, and a quad-core Exynos processor. Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) is pretty much a given at this stage.

There's an OLED Association..haha :p, I bet they're really fun loving people...

On a slightly more relevant note, I think it's pretty obvious that the S3 (if it's called that, Samsung keep referring to it as the S2's successor), will have a 720p SAMOLED+ display. And Samsung do have an event scheduled for the 22nd of May in London...that could well be when we see the beast.

Seemingly the Samsung Galaxy S III will weigh in at 4.6in, which is actually half an inch smaller than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Interesting.

The nexus is 5.1"? Erm no.

anyone know if that clock widget is real or some mock up - want it!!

JanSt / MOD  Apr. 13, 2012 at 13:39

If it's real, that widget probably uses more juice than all of Sense :p
But I like it, too.

Why when I saw these notifications did I think it might have been something sensible :p?

Insanity? Extreme optimism? Over tired?
There's not much to say. Some association says it has a screen we were expecting pretty much and still don't know when we'll see it.

I only throw in these so-called "mistakes" to make sure you lot are paying attention. I studied maths at uni, after all, so I'm perfectly capable of calculating 4.65-4.6. Ahem.

Pondlife, in particular, has passed with distinction today. Good job, sir. Good job.

Umm I don't know about this, they also say in the report that "The Apple iPhone 5 should be released about the same time as the Galaxy S3."

Too soon for a Note 2, though I do have a suspicion that the "S3" won't be called the S3 and it'll have a different name (a la "The New iPad").
