Details of the Samsung Galaxy S III leak at MWC

Although Samsung hasn't even officially moved aside the curtain and publicly shown off the Galaxy S III (and they said they were NOT going to do so at Mobile World Congress (MWC), happening this week), details about the next generation Samsung superphone are emerging, and they are very impressive. It's no wonder that Samsung has become a viable Apple competitor in the smartphone world, globally.

The full specs of the Samsung Galaxy S III haven't leaked, but enough of them have leaked to make this device a rival for anything Apple is likely to ship with the iPhone 5 ... hardware-wise, at least. The Galaxy S III leaked specs, thus-far, are:
  • 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor
  • 4.8-inch “full HD” 1080p resolution with 16:9 aspect ratio display
  • A 2-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera
  • Ceramic case
  • 4G LTE
  • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
Samsung disappointed many when they publicly stated the GS3 introduction event was being pushed out and would not occur at MWC, but it's hard to stop the Internet leak machine.

Earlier rumors indicated that the GS3 would have 2GB of RAM and ship in May.

Rumors are that Apple will try to pull the iPhone 5 back into a summer ship schedule, and will ship it in June, so a May release would be a good --- if not necessary --- way to get attention onto the GS3 prior to the iPhone 5 launch.
