Digitimes is one of the most trustworthy online source of rumors, which is why we here at Androinica find ourselves complied to talk about a speculation about the Samsung Galaxy S III for the first time in almost two weeks.

After reporting that Samsung’s future flagship might be powered by a quad-core Exynos processor, today we have some juicy details about the smartphone’s screen. According to exclusive Digitimes sources in ‘’the supply chain’’, the Galaxy S III could sport a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display with a 319 ppi pixel density.

What could that mean in reality is pretty hard to tell, considering that display quality differs from one device to another, but it’s clear enough that, if this rumor proves to be accurate, the Galaxy S III’s screen will be spectacular.

The Galaxy S II, for example, which has been praised by many technology enthusiasts, only sports a 4.3-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels resolution and 217 ppi pixel density, so what we have here is a huge progress. The pixel density increase should of course be noticed with one’s bare eye when watching video clips or playing games, but it should also make a difference in the screen’s response time, power consumption, weight and thickness.

Furthermore, it seems that the Galaxy S III might be Samsung’s first device to sport an HD Super AMOLED screen with true RGB matrix, so if your expectations for the gadget were high before, you’ll have to seriously increase them once again.

Digitimes’ sources don’t give out any other details about the Galaxy S III, so for the time being we have nowhere to know if the smartphone will in fact be unveiled by May and released by July, as most of the rumors have been stating for a while.

Also, there has to be said that, even though usually these kinds of rumors from trusted sources prove to be accurate, in this particular case you shouldn’t get overly excited until finding out a couple of official details. Stay tuned on our website, because those details are bound to come our way soon enough!
