Galaxy S III to have a 4.8-inch screen

The world already caught a glimpse of an image, which sources claimed was of the Galaxy S III. What was intriguing was that the display size wasn’t exactly revealed yet – with rumours indicating that the screen size could be between 4.6 to 4.8 inches. Well, now according to the latest leak by Know Your Mobile, the Galaxy S III has been spotted next to a ruler and the important point to note out here is that the display size has been measured at 4.8 inches! 

4.8 inches!?

4.8 inches!?



The image is definitely a tad confusing because of the placement of the ruler, the poor clarity and questions about where does the display actually start at, at the bottom. We’ll remind you that the display size is calculated diagonally (on the hypotenuse).  The source claims to have calculated the exact dimensions of the device to exclusively reveal that the Galaxy S III will have a 4.8 inches screen. The other debate whether the phone will have a home button or not has been put to rest in this image as well, as the source mentions that there aren’t any hardware buttons on the device. The only ones that will exist will be visible when the display is switched on.


From the image itself, the S III looks a lot like the Galaxy Nexus, which didn’t have any physical buttons, either. We had earlier carried an article which showed another ‘leaked’ image, but with these latest rumours, there are chances that the previous image was just a brilliantly Photoshopped picture. Button or no button? The handset is going to be announced on the 3rd of May, 2012, so all those rumours will be put to bed soon.
