    Yeah I just read that on another website...forgot which one. I'm excited for this phone. A 4.8 in screen is perfect if its true. This truly needs a global launch. I hope that happens.

    Yeah, even if it's picture of real thing, size comparison can be made only if both picture is on the same zoom scale. But if S3 has small tiny bezel like that, it won't be bigger than Nexus I guess.

    Given that BGR was the only site who got the info on Galaxy Nexus right couple of weeks before the announcement, this is very encouraging rumor. They seem to have some credible sources, although I don't like their pro-Apple stance.

    It's not that ridiculous. Assuming there is near zero bezel, then all you would have to do is bring photos of the Nexus and SII into photoshop. Since you know the dimensions of both, you can scale the screen on the SII to have no bezel, and then scale the entire phone until the screen's diagonal is just slightly longer than the Nexus' screen.

    The only real problem is you don't know EXACTLY how much bezel the S3 has, which affects the overall dimensions obviously.

    we don't know anything about the s3, so to try to draw conclusions from a mock up is crazy and pointless.

    They're very specific that it is just a speculative mockup with the given rumors. Obviously we can't draw any "conclusions" until the phone is released, but that doesn't mean we can't make assumptions as to it's dimensions, appearance, and specs.

    Otherwise this S3 forum would be crazy and pointless...

    Even though it does seem far, a July/Aug release date in the U.S. is not bad at all. The Olympics is a very big factor for that reasoning as well.

    Ultimately, if it isn't VZW, guess I'm SOL.
    Full 1080P, 720P just came out. I don't think so.
    All these rumors just seem to pick the best of everything and put on paper and call it SGSIII.
    What are the chances of this phone having "THE" best of everything?
    highest resolution, best chip, smallest bezel, 2000+mah, etc.

    there was a 6.1 inch 2560x1600 screen back in 2010. 1080p isn't that big of a jump. the best of everything? even with all of that it wouldn't be the best of everything. maybe for a month or so :p

    As for 1080p full HD screen on it, I am also a bit skeptical as it's way above retina resolution on phone, but wouldn't mind it.

    I'm rather glad that samsung didn't unveil SGSIII at MWC. If it packs the spec like that BGR rumor, it will have no problem blowing away everything from MWC.

    We're still on page 3? grrr I've read the first half of the first post on this page about 100 times now.

    Surely it will have a 12 megapixel camera? Either way I hope Samsung step up their game with the sensor, as now that the megapixel race that spanned the last 7 years is over (and the core-gighertz one is in full swing - lol), maybe they will give sensors some love.

    This is wide of the mark and obviously won't happen, but remember that Samsung phone from a few years back with 10mpx and Optical Zoom? hehe it'd be amazing if they put in a super slim optical zoom on the S3, given how slim the phone would be and how much room the circuit board takes up, it'd need to have about 5 or 6 'steps' to it (or whatever you call them) but I know optical zoom isn't exactly a priority these days, it's just a boss idea that will probably reemerge on a camera centric Samsung phone.

    BGR now reporting a rumored April roll-out. And Sammy promised global simultaneous release, so maybe this is closer than thought.
