The Samsung Galaxy S3 may find its place as this year's most advanced phone, as a benchmarking program has leaked its technical specifications. Although counted as rumour at the moment, one detail has already been confirmed by officials.
AnTuTu, a benchmarking application that can be found on Google Play, reports that the future Galaxy S smartphone will outclass most existing devices, like the giant Galaxy Note, the recently released Galaxy Nexus and even the Asus Transformer Prime tablet.
Its performance results are twice as fast as its predecessor, the Galaxy S2. It's also shown as packing an Exynos 4212 chip, built by Samsung. The unit's frequency is clocked at 1.4GHz and will come in a quad-core configuration.
Moreover, Samsung officials have stated earlier that as well as the performance jump, the S3 will consume 20 per cent less battery power (compared to Galaxy S2).
Another impressive element is the 4.7-inch display, a bit larger than the one used in the Galaxy Nexus. This will render content at 1270 by 720 pixel resolutions.
The Galaxy S III may also come with 1GB of RAM, a bit less than some were expecting, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (we may even see it with 4.0.4 preloaded).
No details about the GPU were leaked, but AnTuTu managed to create confusion regarding the camera, showing a 200-megapixel resolution for the front-facing one.That would be a blow for Nokia's 808, wouldn't it?
