Samsung Galaxy S III looks set to be most powerful mobile device yet

The silicon brains of Sammy's much-anticipated Galaxy S III powerhouse look set to run rings around the competition

We're not normally ones for long numbers and benchmarks, but leaked results of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III's 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor are impressive enough to get our gadget senses tingling with anticipation.

PhoneArena's reportedly genuine screenshots of the Galaxy S III's silicon brains reveal that it trumps the Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, the quad-core Tegra 3 processor, and the iPhone 4S' A5 chip.

Even the new iPad 3's quad-core graphics (reviewed here) aren't safe from the power of Sammy's home-grown quad-core Exynos beast, which appears to pack the same graphical punch as Apple's latest slate, with 50 per cent more graphical power than the Samsung Galaxy S II.

We'll of course be taking all of this with a pinch of salt given that Samsung's official Galaxy S III unveiling on May 3rd has yet to take place. If true however, then Samsung has definitely cranked the heat up to 11 in the smartphone wars. Your move, iPhone 5...
