Alleged Benchmarking Result for Galaxy S III Emerges | Technology News

Soon, South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics will bring to the market the successor of its high-end Galaxy S II smartphone.

The vendor already confirmed plans for this, and announced that it will launch the phone before mid-2012, but has yet to deliver any other details on the matter.

Before official info on the upcoming device becomes available, however, it appears that the first benchmark of it emerged online.

On the GLBenchmark website, we can access the testing results for a Samsung smartphone that features the model number GT-I9300.

The handset is listed as featuring a 1196 x 720 pixels resolution, which suggests that it could sport a button-less design similar to the one available on Galaxy Nexus.

This means that the mobile phone might not arrive on shelves with the 1080p full HD screen that it was previously rumored to sport.

The phone is also listed with a 1.4GHz processor, which might be quad-core, though the info lacks from that website. It should be an Exynos 4 CPU from Samsung, featuring a Mali 400 MP GPU (the same as Galaxy S II, Pocketnow adds).

On the said website, we can see the results for the GLBenchmark 2.1 Egypt Standard benchmarking test, in which the handset scored 6584 frames (58.3fps). The handset runs under the Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

The upcoming Galaxy S III smartphone is expected to deliver a performance above that of its predecessor, although it will have a larger, higher resolution screen.

Some of the latest rumors on this mobile phone suggested that it could arrive on the market with a 4.8-inch screen and that it would include an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back.

Moreover, the phone is said to be slated for an April release (Samsung might aim at having it available in a multitude of markets at the same time). Stay tuned for more on this.
