According to rumours, the Galaxy S3 is expected to feature a 4.7-inch screen with a whopping resolution of 1280x800 pixels.
The Lumia 900 is powered by a 1.4 GHz Scorpion CPU Qualcomm APQ8055 Snapdragon chipset. The APQ8055 is a second-generation Snapdragon CPU processor which should increase system performance as well as extend battery life. The device includes the Adreno 205 GPU which improves mobile web experiences by accelerating WebGL as well as Flash 10 Web content. Additionally, it offers 3D graphics performance which provides a richer gaming experience.
The Samsung smartphone is expected to come with an Exynos chipset and a 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU. According to Korea Times, the company did say it would use the Exynos quad-core in Galaxy S2's successor. The new processor with the model number "4412" will reportedly have a top-ten clock speed of 1.5 GHz, including four ARM Mali graphics cores. It will be made by 32 nm technology which offers better performance and overall quality without consuming too much power.
Interestingly, it has long been rumoured the Exynos A9 chipset would make its debut with the S3. However, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer announced on 16 April that it would release a new model powered by the quad-core Exynos A9.
The Nokia smartphone runs on the Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system. It features Dynamic Live Tile information, Twitter and LinkedIn integration, visual voicemail and more.

The Galaxy S3, meanwhile, is expected to offer a significantly larger camera - a 12 megapixel rear-facing unit with support for full HD video recording at 1080p. In addition, it could include a two megapixel front-facing camera for video chats.
