Samsung Galaxy S III benchmarked, not coming in April after all?

Samsung Galaxy S III benchmarked, not coming in April after all?We reckon HTC and Nokia (among others) were quite glad that the Samsung Galaxy S III didn’t pop up in Barcelona last week, and to be honest – we’re kind of over it too. But that doesn’t mean we’re not consuming the latest Samsung Galaxy S III rumours like ravenous dogs.

Today we’ve got some juicy GLBenchmark results, purportedly showing stats for Samsung’s latest flagship. Très intéressant.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is expected to carry model number GT-I9300, and that’s exactly what we’ve got here.

Samsung Galaxy S III specs we can extract from the benchmark include Android  4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich), a display resolution of 1196 x 720 (not 1080p HD, then), and a max CPU frequency of 1,400MHz – however it’s unclear if that’s dual- or quad-core. Surely the latter.

There’s also a Mali 400 MP GPU, same as the Samsung Galaxy S II but clocked higher to fuel that larger Samsung Galaxy S III display at the same pace.

As for the Samsung Galaxy S III release date, we were recently told to mark April on our calendars, but Samsung has stressed that nothing is official just yet, and any official announcement will be made via Twitter.

The benchmark tests for release date? That's how they know? :p ;)

That benchmark means nothing. Well, nothing much. We don't know what the final release version will be.

Worse, this means Martin James was right http://www.mobot.net/samsung-galaxy-iii-feature-48in-full-hd-display-chance-38177/3

:p

Two things I noticed about this if it's true..

The quad core exynos 4412 is confirmed.
The screen resolution 1196x720 points to software buttons ala galaxy nexus

Samsung told the Verge, "1st half of 2012". Nothing more, nothing less.

Good spots!

Doesn't the specs for this point more towards the S2+ or whatever it was called?

Why is quad core confirmed? I only see 4x12, so it could be the dual core 4212. Am I missing something else?

You're right, quad-core wasn't confirmed at all, purely speculation.

Yeah good point.. Could be the galaxy s2 +... Could possibly be dual core

It might not be the S III, as i heard the module number might not be 19300
