Rumour: Samsung Galaxy S III to have 4.8-inch display, ceramic back, simultaneous global launch

BGR are reporting that the Galaxy S III will have a 4.8-inch display, ceramic back, and will launch globally simultaneously, citing a “trusted source”. I’m reserved when it comes to BGR are their exclusive leaks, so take it all with a massive grain of salt.

A 4.8-inch display would need to have a resolution of 1366×768 to bring it up to the 320ppi mark, which is just above where the Galaxy Nexus is at 325ppi. That’s certainly possible and lines up with other salt-grainy rumours from Eldar Murtazin who said the display was better than the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II.

A ceramic back would make total sense for heat resistance against what is rumoured to be a high-powered Exynos Quad-Core CPU. It would also bring a nice solid feel to the device instead of the usual plastic feel of Samsung products.

The simultaneous global launch is a part of the rumour we’re happy to jump on board about. Samsung have already put this across by saying the delay of the Galaxy S III was to make sure it can launch quicker in more places after the announcement. Australia would certainly be included in the 50 “countries and cities” BGR’s source is referring to.

Samsung are loosing the plot. 4.8 inches? There is no way these phones can be used with one hand, the convenience of a “mobile” phone is long gone. Don’t kid yourselves, these are tablets not phones. What’s more depressing is that the rest of the Android manufacturers are following Samsung in this arms-race into oblivion.

4.8 sounds good to me as i use my mobile to watch movies or surf the net when at work. Hopefully the SG3 specs get confirmed soon.

Ceramic? Sounds brittle. Still beats glass though.

As long as it isn’t bigger in dimensions than the GNex.

Eager to see what the batt size will be.

Starting to look like the iPhone 3G. Let it not be so.
