We’ve got a fresh leak of our usual special guest, the Samsung Galaxy S III, straight from Vietnam. Courtesy of local site Tinhte the year’s most awaited smartphone was filmed and analyzed in front of the camera, as shown in the video below. We’re dealing here with a quad core phone indeed and one that looks uglier than we hoped.
It appears that the specs upgrade from the Galaxy S II is quite minor. The source of the leaked video claims that this is the GT-I9300 model, that was associated with the Galaxy S III in the past. They also mention some specs for it, like a 4.6 inch 720p display with 320 DPI density and a quad core 1.4 GHz processor, probably of the Exynos kind. Android 4.0 ICS, 1GB of RAM and an 8 megapixel camera are also on the specs list, plus a microSD card slot and a 2050 mAh battery with NFC capabilities, just like the Galaxy Nexus.
Honestly speaking, this model doesn’t offer much extra compared to the Galaxy Nexus, so it’s much of an upgrade for it as the iPhone 4S was to the iPhone 4… and still people bought it. And what about the leak from last week saying that there will be a physical home button?! Where’s that? And what about the ceramic case, 1080p display, 12MP camera, 32GB storage and no microSD card? I tend to believe this video is fake and that this is in fact a Galaxy S II Plus version or something…
