Samsung Galaxy S III, the next generation high-end Android smartphone from the South Korean mobile phone maker, is expected to arrive on shelves with a large, 4.8-inch touchscreen display, the latest reports on the matter suggest.The info arrives via a leaked image with what appears to be the final design of Samsung’s new flagship device, but no official confirmation on this is yet available.
According to the photo that an “anonymous tipster” sent to Know Your Mobile, the smartphone will sport a 130mm body, while its screen will be 4.8 inches in size.
Previously leaked images with the phone suggested that it won’t sport hardware buttons on the front, the same as on Galaxy Nexus.
