Samsung Galaxy S III sports a disguise and smiles for the camera

After hundreds of leaked pictures, blurrycam exclusives and ropey mock-ups, the Galaxy S III has decided to strut its stuff on video for the first time. As ever this could well turn out to be a convincing hoax however this is about as authentic as we’ve seen to date. Samsung recently spoke out claiming that the identify of the Galaxy S III has been carefully protected and that none of the so called leaks have been accurate to date. Samsung also added that all test models are housed with a generic case in order to prevent any such leaks. With that in mind, this could well add some credibility to this video as the phone under the lens certainly sits in a bland case.

What we can take from this video are the specs of the device. We can see a quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos processor, 1GB RAM, an 8 MP camera, NFC and a 1184 x 720 resolution HD screen. TouchWiz is also (unfortunately) present however I still hold out hope for the rumoured dual boot into stock ICS or TouchWiz. The Navigation buttons are on screen which would make this device the second phone since the Galaxy Nexus to use this feature, definitely a welcome inclusion.

So while these latest pics and video do not necessarily confirm 100% that what we’re looking at is definitely the Galaxy S III, what we can see is that this is a high end device with some impressive specs. It’s only a couple  more weeks until May 3rd when we’ll finally find out!

Check out the pics and the video and let us know if you think this could be the real deal in the comments below.

Originally from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, I'm now living in the UK's second city, Birmingham. I've had a passion for gadgets from a very young age, it all started with my Commodore 64 at the tender age of 2 years old. I purchased my first mobile phone aged 17 and it was from there the obsession began. Having now gone through 33 phones in 13 years it's safe to say my passion for phones is alive and well! My current phone is the Galaxy Nexus as I'm a big fan of the pure Android experience. I've been working in the Banking industry for the past 10 years and I'm currently working in Human Resources for one of the World's largest Retail Banks. I spend my spare time with my wonderful wife and young family and when I'm not fiddling with phones and tablets I can be found playing football (soccer for you guys in the States!), watching Mixed Martial Arts, tinkering with cars or listening to music.

    Is it just me or is the phone in the video extremely slow? He had to tap on the icons a few time and the scrolling is not smooth at all. Opening the camera app was noticeably slow too. If someone was showing me that phone, first impression is, the Nexus is a better/faster phone.

    it has black tape over the capacitive buttons on the sides of the Samsung logo … I guarantee this is not the s3!! FAKE !!!
