Ladies and gents, BGR’s back with more info about the Samsung Galaxy S III coming from its “trusted source”. This time the blog claims that it has received some more information that help paint a more complete picture of what we all can expect from Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone.

BGR says you can expect the Galaxy S III to run on Android 4.0 with TouchWiz and feature a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor as well as a 4.8-inch “full HD” 1080p resolution display with 16:9 aspect ratio. There’s also a 2MP front camera and a 8MP rear camera. We say, expect the camera to feature with a backlit sensor as well and zero shutter lag like the one seen on the Galaxy Nexus.

BGR insists that the Galaxy S III will have a ceramic back panel and while we’re not going to pretend to be experts in the matter, we really can’t see how it would be practical to use something so inherently brittle and expensive to mass produce on a mobile phone. But like we said, we’re not materials or manufacturing experts, Samsung might have sussed out all the issues to be able to make a device that uses ceramics as a construction material. In any case, a phone made out of ceramics would be cool, in more ways than one – if you know what we’re talking about.

In terms of launch date, we’re pegging for an announcement something in March or April and market availability in the June-July window. Also an almost simultaneous global launch is very possible.
