    If this rumor is true, then it confirms similar rumors previously reported about the Samsung Galaxy S III. The newest bit of "intel" is that the SGS3 has entered the carrier testing phase of its journey to eventually end up in consumer's pockets. This is the phase where the carrier gets to see if they can make the LTE work with its quad-core Exynos chip.

    Some details emerged with this report. Namely, the screen is the same 720p HD 4.65-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, with a 316ppi pixel density that was previously rumored. Additionally, this screen will supposedly not be a Pentile matrix display, which is a great thing as you can see from comparison pic below. Rumors have suggested that the phone could ship as early as April, but more than likely it will hit store shelves in Korea and possibly Europe in May. right now, that is mostly just industry speculation though.

    The launch of the SGS3 could be very close! Share your thoughts on this ultra-flagship device.

    I detest Touchwiz <shudder>. The only skin I've used and liked at all was Sense. However, since I plan on rooting any Android device I purchase, the skin isn't a deal-killer. The specs look nice and if it comes to VZW, I'll be getting one. I'm due for an upgrade in June anyway.

    I don't care what it comes with as I'm sure the dev community will be all over this. I really, really hope it comes to Verizon though!!
