Galaxy S III will be using a non-Pentile display turned out to be false. It's using the same Pentile Matrix technology that previous Samsung phones (among others) relied on. We had heard that the new Samsung flagship would use the sharper and more expensive "Super AMOLED HD+" layout (i.e. a standard pixel grid) but we can confirm here at the Mobile Unpacked event that this is not the case.
Galaxy S III. With the announcement only days away we will know all the details soon, but these new pictures show what is likely the official size, shape, and design for the Galaxy S III. It matches the recent leaks we've reported and are linked to below. Check the pictures out after the break.
Galaxy S III news! We still haven't seen a convincing render or press shot of Samsung's upcoming flagship, but according to and off-hand sentence from the OLED Association, we may finally know exactly what screen it's going to use. In among a gigantic report, the Association let slip that the Galaxy S III will have a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED HD+ screen - a 720p panel similar to, but distinct from, the screen that's on the Galaxy Nexus. What's different about it? That little plus sign makes all the difference: it means that the screen in question won't be using a Pentile pixel matrix. The report pegs the phone's release for May.
Sony's Xperia S is pretty awesome: a 1280x720 IPS display in a 4.3-inch phones makes for one of the highest pixel densities in the smartphone world, with color accuracy to match. But aparently all is not well in Xperia town - many users are reporting an unpleasant shift into the yellow spectrum when the phone gets hot, i.e., under any sort of high data or processing load. Sony told Cnet UK that they're aware of the problem, and will repair customers' phones at no extra cost.
