Remember that alleged Samsung Galaxy S3 photo that “leaked” earlier this week? Well, it’s cropped up again somewhere else and this time we get a much clearer view.
The snap – courtesy of an ‘anonymous source’ (is there any other kind?) – reveals what’s being claimed is Sammy’s much anticipated sequel to the 20 million-plus-selling Galaxy S2.
You might recognise it immediately as the same bit of kit we saw on Monday, except this particular image – which could either be a promo shot or just another elaborate mock-up – looks a tad more believable as it’s not conspicuously blurry and gives us a decent look at the front of the handset.
In addition to the photo, the shadowy tipster also revealed specs the handset will sport, which for the most part line up with much of what’s been already rumoured.
The Galaxy S3 will apparently measure 131 x 64 x 8 mm in height, width and depth respectively, and weigh 125g – meaning it’ll be slimmer than the S2 but weigh slightly more.
The display, meanwhile, will come in at 4.7 inches, with native 720p resolution, and be of the same Super AMOLED Plus variety that featured on its predecessor.
The source also confirms the handset will rock a 1.5GHz quad core processor, along with 1GB of RAM rather than 2GB as had been previously rumoured, 32GB of internal storage.
Also mooted to be on board are a 12-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording at 60fps, NFC and HSPA+ support, Wi-Fi b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0 and an HDMI port.
Providing it’s even real, the photo also reveals a May 22nd ‘Unpacked Event’ for the S3, which doesn’t seem so improbable if reports of Samsung’s plans to coincide the phone’s launch with the London Olympics are anything to go by.
