With a ton of rumours surrounding the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S III smartphone, from the actual launch date, to what to expect from the phone itself, BGR is has just reported some pretty interesting specs to wrap your head around.

With no confirmation on the predicted sleek 7mm body, 1.5 mm thinner than its predecessor, according to BGR, everything else about this phone is expected to be just as sexy as we were hoping.

It looks like the Galaxy S III will in fact become Samsung’s first quad-core smartphone, with an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front facing camera as we expected.

Another expectation that looks likely to come true is support for LTE networks, including 4G networks. The phone will sport a 4.8-inch full HD screen, with 1080p resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio display.

Running Android’s latest version, Ice Cream Sandwich, the phone will feature a ceramic case. Expected to launch in May, the Samsung Galaxy S III is creating quite the bit of buzz for the Korean smartphone maker, and rightfully so.
