New leak: Samsung Galaxy S III Specifications !! – Elie
After an image alleged to be that of the heavily anticipated Samsung Galaxy S IIIwas posted on Reddit yesterday, we have another leak today. Also found on Reddit, the image of what is claimed to be the Samsung Galaxy S III was posted by a friend of a Samsung employee who also tipped his bud to some of the specs on the model. According to this so-called Samsung insider, the Samsung Galaxy S III will have a 4.7 inch screen that is about the size of the phone itself and is characterized as being a Super AMOLED Plus screen with HD. Under the hood will be a quad-core Exynos 4412 processor. There will be 2GB of RAM aboard along with a 12MP camera (with flash). A 2250mAh battery will be powering the device and the whole phone is just 8mm thin.
Based on the information from the insider, Samsung is considering offering the Samsung Galaxy S III with Android 4.0 installed and TouchWiz on top of it, or giving the user the option to toggle between the latter and a stock Android 4.0 experience. Also, the unit will have a ceramic “micro arc oxidation” back.
Obviously, we can’t say that this is the real deal, nor can we be quick to say it is a fake. Just file this in the back of your mind and as more details emerge, we can get an idea of what the Samsung Galaxy S III will really look like.
There have been a lot of rumors and fake mockups concerning the Samsung Galaxy S III, and now a new image that has started floating around which may point to the end of all the speculation. If this one is a fake, it’s one of the most detailed fakes we’ve ever seen.
The new image looks to be a press image teasing a Samsung Unpacked event in London. If the details are to be believed, Samsung will be announcing the Samsung Galaxy S III on May 22nd at 6PM in London. A May would give a lot of lead-up to the rumored release window in July. This is all information that lines up with the last “final design” rumor image that we saw, although the phone itself looks a bit different in the new leak.
The phone itself looks pretty nice, aside from completely masking Android 4.0 with TouchWiz of course. It looks very slim, with a big screen and small bezel. The home button has made a comeback, which either means Samsung thinks it has the upper hand in Apple’s lawsuits, or that Apple won’t mind now. The biggest difference between this image and the last one we saw is that this one looks to have capacitive buttons, not Ice Cream Sandwich on-screen function buttons, and there is a dedicated camera button on the side as well.
The internals are still all rumored at this point, but no doubt it will have some impressive specs. What are the thoughts on this newest image? It certainly looks more believable than the last, but keeping capacitive buttons seems odd.
