Samsung's widely rumoured Galaxy S3 will come with a high resolution display that will rival Apple's iPhone, according to a report.
Digitimes cited sources in Samsung's supply chain as saying that the Galaxy S3 will have a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED HD screen.
The website said that this display would boast a pixel density of 319ppi, which would rival the display in Apple's iPhone 4S.
It added that the new smartphone, the successor to the 20m+ selling Galaxy S2, will launch in the second or third quarter of 2012.
A recent press image reported on social news website Reddit suggested that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S3 on May 22 in London, although this has not been officially confirmed.
Samsung is a major promoter of the AMOLED technology, because it offers a better response time, power consumption, thickness, weight and colour performance compared to LCD.
AMOLED is currently more expensive than other panels, but industry experts believe that the cost will come down as more firms adopt the technology for their smartphones.
Alongside the high-res screen, the Galaxy S3 is also expected to come with either a dual-core processor or possibly a quad-core Exynos 4412 chipset in development at Samsung.
It is likely that the smartphone will run the latest iteration of Google Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, with a tailored version of Samsung's TouchWiz user interface layered over the top.
There are conflicting reports about the camera in the Galaxy S3, including some sources saying it will have a 16-megapixel camera, but others pointing to a 12MP snapper.
