Everybody knows that BGR are persistently claiming that the GS3 has a 1080p screen. They are the only site on the web claiming this.
For a long time Ive been thinking they were trying to create a 'disappointment campaign'. so that on release people thought it wasnt as good as they hoped for, but Ive been thinking there is actually an outside chance heres how.
They could run with either a matrix 720p screen, or a 1080p pentile. (before you start screaming about pentile being bad, think about this...)
Look at the maths and think about the logic...
1280 x 720 x 3 (matrix) = 2764800 sub pixels
1920 x 1080 x 2 (pentile) = 4147200 sub pixels
about 40% more clarity and no way will you notice pentile at over 400 dpi !!!
also, only the Exynos 5250 would realistically be able to drive this resolution well.
Also, dont you think that if Samsung were only running with specs that were only inline with all other 720p / quad devices ala MWC they wouldn't bother waiting until May. As the longer they wait, the more disappointed people will actually be. (we are expecting something better at this stage)
if the Exynos 5250 really is in the GS3 and samsung used a pentile 1080p screen rather than a 720p screen they would have a product worth waiting for and will be able to differentiate themselves in a way that would not be possible with the currently projected specs
Could there be TWO versions of the GS3 like was rumoured with the Galaxy Nexus but for real this time?
Too many questions, I cant wait for this device.
