A new report indicates Samsung's long-awaited Galaxy S III smartphone will sport an incredible HD display

Samsung's Galaxy S III Android smartphone will sport an incredible HD display, according to a new report published by DigiTimes. Citing "supply chain sources", the smartphone will feature a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus 720p display with 319 ppi pixel density.

What that means in reality is hard to tell, considering that display quality differs greatly from one device to another. However, if this rumor proves to be true, the Galaxy S III’s screen will be absolutely stunning.

Significantly, the "Plus" in the title indicates a regular RGB matrix, not the usual PenTile arrangement Samsung uses in its high-res AMOLED displays. This could make it the first HD Super AMOLED screen with a true RGBmatrix. In comparison, the Galaxy Nexus features an HD PenTile screen.
The pixel density increase should of course also be noticed when watching video clips or playing HD games. The pixel dense screen should also make a major difference in power consumption and thickness, so expect a large battery and super-thin chassis.

While news of a Super AMOLED Plus HD display is certainly exciting for enthusiasts, it remains to be seen if we actually see one. Samsung should be making an official announcement at some point, so hopefully we'll find out sooner rather than later.
