Galaxy S III Official Press Shot Leaked, to be Launched in April [Rumor]

Galaxy S III

I still suggest you guys to take these new rumors with a pinch of salt, but these new two leaks seem slightly more credible than most of the previous ones.

The newest in a line of Samsung Galaxy S III clues is a press photo provided by a group, namely GSM Helpdesk, which claims it is the final straight-on look at the next-generation smartphone (image shown above).

The image is supposedly an official press shot, and the timing makes some sense, since an image leaked last week looked alike enough, but the other one was rumored to being faked.

The most interesting thing about the supposed Galaxy S III in this image is its inclusion of hardware buttons underneath the display. The phone will likely run Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich, which allows phones to use software, buttons instead.

GSM’s tipster also includes some pretty nice specs that have been floating around for a while, like a 1.5GHz quad-core processor (while a recent leak suggested Exynos quad core processor), a 4.7-inch 720p Super-AMOLED screen at 313ppi, and a 12MP camera, a 1.3-megapixel front camera, 1 GB of RAM and a thickness of 8 mm.

Other report coming around the corner suggests that Samsung Greater China President Kim Young-Ha revealed that the company could still launch Galaxy S III handset in April, with the company considering pulling forward the debut of the much-anticipated handset from initial May estimates, according to Maeli Business News. And the words were spitted at a press conference earlier today.

One final tidbit is the launch date – set for May 22, but Samsung might pull it forward to April, according to exec.
