I’m sure that if you watched the news in the last 24 hours you know by heart what does the Galaxy S III have for us. We are dealing with a phone with a 4.8 inch screen, Super AMOLED technology and bearing a 720p resolution. Note that this is a Super AMOLED screen and not Super AMOLED+, so 720p panel comes with Pentia RBGB pixels arrangement just like Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II HD LTE. In the pictures below you can see a microscopic comparison between these screens.

Analysis was performed with an USB microscope with 230x zoom and the first comparison took place with HTC One X  and its SLCD2 720p. Note that HTC One X’s denser sub pixels produce a clearer picture, but it is lower than the Galaxy S III at contrast chapter, especially when it comes to black. In comparison with the Galaxy Nexus, we have here two very similar terminals, one screen of 4.65 inch with AMOLED Super HD and one with the same screen, same resolution, but the 4.8-inch diagonal. Pixel density is slightly smaller on the new Galaxy S, but the difference is imperceptible to the human eye.

It seems that Samsung reduced the red pixels, judging by microscopic analysis, but personally I do not see any relevance in this. Then comes the great duel between Galaxy S III, Galaxy S and Galaxy S II. Galaxy S offers a range of 4-inch AMOLED screen with 800×480 pixel resolution, while the Galaxy S II features a 4.3-inch screen with Super AMOLED Plus technology with resolution of 800×480 pixels. The Galaxy S II LTE making its way in comparison with 800×480 display of 4.5 inch and Super AMOLED Plus technology. I’d say Super AMOLED Plus has a slight advantage here, but again we must see the Galaxy S III live so we can judge the screen.
