Samsung could have sent out disguised Galaxy S3 units to networks for testing, it has emerged, as the phone-maker resorts to keep the blockbuster blower away from prying eyes.
According to ET News, the South Korean giant has copied Apple’s tactic of despatching versions of the handset to carriers that retain its functionality but use a different exterior.
The purported adoption of a sneaky-pete approach comes as speculation mounts over what is sure to be the year’s most-wanted Android smartphone.
According to recent leaks, the S3 has already racked up pre-orders from networks of ten million, meaning it’s already well on course to smash the S2’s lifetime sales numbers of 20 million.
Other rumours suggest the handset will rock an Exynos quad-core processor to bring it in line with flagship phones from LG and HTC and a 12-megapixel camera.
A 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD Plus screen is also set to be on board the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered smartie, we’re assured, as well as a long-life battery and wireless charging.
