Samsung’s next flagship phone will be titled the Galaxy S3 after all, an official Sammy app appears to reveal, confounding reports that the company could go for a less obvious nomenclature.
The Samsung Unpacked app, which will allow users to stream the S3 launch event on May 3rd, has long been a mainstay of Sammy product launches, playing host to press releases and all the gen about locations for showcases.
But as a keen-eyed fellow at Engadget points out, it looks like the app might’ve let something slip inadvertently this time around.
Scanning the Google Play app store, the site clocked that Samsung has used the tag ‘S3’ to describe the application – seemingly confirming that the name the phone has been given by tech watchers will indeed be the one Sammy opts for.
This jars with a supposed leak from an insider from earlier this month which ruled out the S3 name and posited that Samsung could "do an Apple" and take a sideways step with a a more oblique title, as Cupertino did with the third iPad and the iPhone 4S.
Specs for the phone are currently tightly under-wraps. However, rumours suggest it’ll feature a 4.7/8.8-inch screen with Super AMOLED HD Plus display technology and a 12-megapixel camera.
The Android Ice Cream Sandwich-powered handset is also expected to rock an Exynos quad-core processor and 16MB of internal storage.
