Samsung is planning to announced their Galaxy S III device in two weeks on May 3rd at their Unpacked event in London. But, that didn’t stop a Vietnamese website from leaking video and pictures of the device. This may be our first real look at the Galaxy S III, after months of speculation, false leaks, and rumors.
The leakers, a website called Tinhte from Vietnam, posted images and videos of the device with ID “GT-I9300,” which is supposedly the Galaxy S III. Of course, the device will not necessarily look like the one in the images/video in final form. Samsung is reportedly using dummy cases to hide the true form factor of the device until it is finally released in May. The leakers did say that “Samsung used a fake shell to ensure the phone isn’t exposed until they announce it.”
Still, this leak is the first to show off the latest version of TouchWiz over the Android 4.0.3 base. It also shows off the HD Super AMOLED (presumably of the “Plus” variety) display with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution. The stats say “1184 x 720″ to account for the on-screen button display (like on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus). Inside of this beast is a quad-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.4 GHz.
Here’s a list of specifications revealed by the leakers:
- Android 4.0.3 with TouchWiz
- 2050 mAh battery
- 1 GB of RAM
- 16 GB of storage
- microSD slot
- 1.4 GHz Exynos quad-core processor
- ARMv7 max theoretical clock 1592.52
- Mali-400 MP GPU
- 4.6-inch HD Super AMOLED (Plus?)
- 60.501 refresh rate
- 320 dpi
- 1184 x 720 pixel resolution w/ on-screen buttons
- Codename GT-I9300
- 8-megapixel camera
