And the beat goes on with the Samsung Galaxy S III news. We’ve seen benchmarks for the upcoming device and now know it will feature a quad-core processor, but we now may have something just as significant to share with you all. Well-regarded Sammy blog SamMobile has obtained what it claims to be an actual scan from the service manual of the device. If you look carefully, the sketch outline of the device pictured seems to match up with what we’ve seen here… and here… oh and here in a silhouette as well.
Accompanying the outline of the anticipated smartphone are details of the internals. The specs match up with what we’ve previously heard about for the most part including an HSPA+ radio and 1080P video recording. However, you’ll note that this apparent mockup of the Galaxy S III device is clocked at 1.5GHz as opposed to 1.4GHz (per Sammy’s Exynos announcement), an 8MP camera as opposed to a 12MP camera and a 4.8-inch screen as opposed to a 4.7-inch screen. In addition, there’s a home button on this device, which goes against our previous sightings where we’d seen soft keys on the screen. Perhaps Samsung may have more than one variation of the upcoming Galaxy S III smartphone being developed? It’s more than possible considering it has multiple variations of the Galaxy S II for example.
Despite SamMobile’s reputation for obtaining accurate information in the past, this latest leak as with most leaks shouldn’t be taken too seriously. The only thing certain of the device we do that it will feature a fast— really fast Exynos processor. Until then Samsung will do everything in its power to stay tight-lipped and keep us in suspense until next week’s unveiling. I mean after all, it’s no fun if we know everything about the device before it’s formally unveiled, is it?
