Telstra might already be testing the Galaxy S III; will have 4G, quad-core, edge-to-edge 4.8-inch HD display

Well how about this for a Sunday morning rumour from Smarthouse. They’re reporting that Telstra is already testing the Samsung Galaxy S III with a release date set for a few days after the global launch date in April. Keep in mind, Smarthouse have reported some pretty horrendous stories that have never played out. Smarthouse says that Telstra’s Galaxy S III will have 4G LTE and was told by its sources that it does indeed have a 4.8-inch HD edge-to-edge display. Whether that’s 1920×1080 still remains a mystery for now.

The article goes on to say that Vodafone and Optus will also have access to the Galaxy S III at some point, but it’s not known whether or not Telstra will claim a month of exclusivity. If we get any more info, we’ll keep you informed.

    I said I wouldn’t replace my GS2 unless my next phone’s screen goes to the edge. Touche Samsung!

    Let’s hope these rum ours turn out to be more true than the recent Samsung super-tablet rumours. Otherwise the sgs3 will turn out to be identical to the sgs2, but maybe a bit cheaper…

     how is that phone going to fit in your pocket?

      They actually did a size comparison with the galaxy nexus, and it turns that the overall S3 is smaller than the galaxy nexus, albeit with a larger screen.

        The SII’s form factor looks big enough to fit a 4.8″ screen edge-to edge. Gee it’d be nice if I didn’t have to buy a new car kit and desktop cradle.

    Now, if only they’d add a notification led!

    Never believe Smarthouse. Worst so-called tech journalism in Australia.
