We’ve already reported on the iPhone 5’s display this morning – with it allegedly set to transfer from LCD to OLED, as well as increase in size.
However, there’s also a rumour regarding the display of the Apple smartphone’s main rival, the upcoming Galaxy S III from Samsung.
Word is, according to a report from DDaily (via The Verge), that the S III will boast a 4.65 inch Super-AMOLED Plus display with a 1280×720 resolution.
That would make it a super-sharp screen with a pixel density of 316ppi, nearly reaching the iPhone’s current retina detail level – but on a much bigger display, of course, which will make all the difference when it comes to how impressive it looks.
Let’s not get too carried away at this stage, however, as this is just a rumour – and we’d have to actually see the screen in action before we started praising it, anyway. It’s a potentially exciting development for Galaxy smartphone fans, though, without a doubt.
The only possible downside is that an AMOLED screen of this quality could be quite a draw on the smartphone’s battery, but we guess if Samsung is taking this route, the company has been addressing this problem.
The Galaxy S III’s rumoured specification also has it pegged with a quad-core processor and a 12 megapixel camera, with Samsung thought to be coming out all-guns-blazing against the iPhone.
A release date isn’t yet confirmed, but we could possibly see the device as soon as next month.
