Samsung Galaxy S3 specs leaked: quad-core, 1080p screen, ICS

The long-awaited Samsung Galaxy S3's specs have leaked, and they're mighty impressive, giving the iPhone more than a run for its money.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is the most keenly awaited smart phone since a certain iPhone 5 failed to make an appearance last year. Well it's one step closer to becoming reality, as we have a spec list right here. And the big news is it has a 1080p screen, quad-core processor, and Android Ice Cream Sandwich, according to BGR's sources.

The screen is 4.8-inches across, pegging it just shy of Panasonic's massive Eluga Power. The Full HD resolution means 1,920x1,080 pixels, so movies should look amazing on this thing. It also has a 16:9 aspect ratio, making it perfect for films.

Inside is a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor -- it's a bit of a surprise Samsung didn't go for a third-party model. Ice Cream Sandwich brings features like face unlock and the ability to group apps in folders. It's 4G too -- that doesn't mean a lot for us Brits just yet, but it could do before the end of the year. Fingers crossed.

It's no slouch image-wise either. An 8-megapixel camera sits on the back, with a 2-megapixel front-facer. That's pretty high resolution for video calls, so you'd better check yourself in a mirror before making one.

The Galaxy S3 also has a ceramic case, according to the spec list.

This thing has been the subject of more rumours and speculation than a Hollywood A-lister. It's rumoured to be just 7mm slim. It was originally thought to be given an outing in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress, though its reveal has since been pushed back. It may well go on sale in July. It's so keenly awaited we've collected everything you need to know about it in an enormous guide.

What do you make of that spec list? It's not exhaustive, but is anything missing? What else would you like to see? Let me know in the comments below, or on our Facebook page. And for all the MWC news, stay tuned to
