A mysterious source of Phandroid’s just sent them an email that details the potential 2012 hit smartphone Samsung Galaxy S III. For us this handset is a total mystery, but to some people it’s a real device… The info comes from a supposed leaked slide that Samsung was showing off to partners, retailers and carriers.
We see here the evolution of the Galaxy S line and some specs of the following model. No trace of quad core processor just yet, so we’ll have to do with a dual core Exynos 4212 CPU at 1.8 GHz, plus 2GB of RAM and a 12 megapixel camera. The display is a 4.65 inch Super AMOLED Plus HD screen, providing HD resolution without relying on the PenTile technology.
The camera uses a W750 BSI CMOS sensor and the device comes with LTE and NFC support. Galaxy S III won’t be a curved handset like the Nexus Prime or use a curved display, so the design language will be totally different. It will also be different from the previous Galaxy models, in order to avoid patent problems with Apple.
Ice Cream Sandwich is the OS of choice and apparently the Galaxy S III is thinner than the Galaxy S II. Reasons to believe that this slide is a fake are plenty: typos and the presence of an Exynos CPU on the first Galaxy S, so you should take the info with a grain of salt.
