The Samsung Galaxy S III Looks Like It'll Be a Quad-Core Beast

By Sam Gibbs on at

If you were expecting anything other than an absolute powerhouse out of Samsung for its latest flagship phone come May 3rd, think again. Samsung’s confirmed that the “Next Galaxy”, aka the Galaxy S III, will come packing the company’s new blazing-fast Exynos 4 quad-core chip.

The Galaxy S III also made an appearance on Samsung’s own update software, Kies, in suitably tiny icon fashion, which means unfortunately there’s very little we can really see. It does look like there’s a greater screen to bezel ratio though, which bodes well for the device's final, presumably skinny dimensions.

Looks like we might be in for a real cracker come May 3rd. Let’s just hope it lives up to all this hype and doesn’t come off like a damp squib. [Reuters, SamMobile]
