So it looks like last night the “possible” Galaxy S III was leaked, well most of it. It appears as though Samsung has taken another page out of Apple’s book and has decide to put a fake casing on the device to hide its finally design. That being said, the front and basic overall design are pretty evident.
The pictures come courtesy of the Vietnamese site, Tinhte, who has since pulled the article, but thanks to the amazing tech community, everyone and their mother has seen the pictures that were posted. So why do we believe this is the successor to the Galaxy S II? Well, first is the model number, the GT-i9300, which follows the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II before it. According to one of the screenshots, the device is also running a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, which we posted about last night, which Samsung would obviously want to introduce with their next flagship device.
On top of that, it also looks like the device will have a 720p HD Super AMOLED display, no word on if it is a Plus though, but at least we know it’s not a 1080p display that was inaccurately reported by BGR. Since we can see the battery, which is 2,050mAh in size, we know the battery door, regardless of material, can be removed, unless Samsung changes that before production. Another item that the Verge suggest could be change before production is the camera. Samsung has placed an 8-megapixel camera in the GT-i9300, and we agree with The Verge here, the picture aren’t all that impressive.
May 3rd can’t come soon enough, how many of you are excited for this device? Is the front a little to similar to the Galaxy S II or do you like the new look? Let us know in the comments, in the mean time, enjoy the other pics.
