The Samsung Galaxy S3 panel will reportedly sport a pixel density that’ll put in the region of the iPhone’s Retina display, latest whispers from the Far East suggest.

Citing “sources in the supply chain”, DigiTimes is reporting that “Samsung is likely to launch a 4.6-inch Galaxy S3 that has an increased pixel size of 319pp” sometime in the second or third quarter of 2012.

To put it into perspective, the Galaxy S2 has a 216.97ppi, while the iPhone 4S leads with an impressive 329.65ppi.

What’s not mentioned is what the sub-pixel density of the display will be, which for the uninitiated, determines the quality of the antialiasing. This is where the iPhone 4S takes things to the next level with a staggering 613.32 s-ppi, compared to 452.48 s-ppi managed by its closest competitor, the Motorola Droid.

Additionally, the tipsters also revealed the S3 will use a “Super AMOLED HD Plus panel”, which adds fresh credence to rumours of a native 720p HD resolution.

Other features mooted to be on board the as-yet unannounced threequel include a 1.5GHz quad core Exynos processor, a 12-megapixel camera, NFC support and possibly wireless charging capabilities.

Samsung is expected to host a press event sometime in the next six to eight weeks to unveil the handset, with a launch likely to coincide with the London Olympics.
