We’ve already been keeping up with a whole bunch of rumors surrounding the coming launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III for months on end now. Though, with multiple “leaks” and images also hitting the web we’ve still never seen anything too convincing.
But today, a new leaked picture of Galaxy S 3, you can see above, doesn’t look like other typical render. Previous renders have been either laughable or exaggerated at best, and for the first time ever. I think this is the real deal as this image has been allegedly snapped by a person who claims to have the device in his hands for testing purposes.
Image above, as well as according to the report: Samsung has decided on keeping the hardware home button on its new upcoming Galaxy S3 handset along with a five-row icon screen which, even if censored, can be seen above. We’re also seeing vanilla ICS (at least the program tray which definitely looks different with TouchWiz).
Different but according to multiple report, it appears that OLED Association recently released an ample article on Samsung Mobile Display success on the market and the launch of the YOUM branding for flexible displays. There’s nothing unusual here. However, while explaining how many displays SMD (Samsung Mobile Display) delivered and to which models, the association claims Samsung’s plans to release a 4.6-inches display, giving it a pixel density of 319ppi for new device. The Association also posits that the phone will ship in May around the same time frame as Apple’s iPhone 5, which aligns with many of the other rumours we’ve heard in recent weeks.
Software and Hardware-wise, the Galaxy S III is said to be equipped with either a quad-core 1.5GHz or dual-core 2GHz processor, with having an awesome 8 or 12 megapixel camera around back but nothing is actually known. All sealed up with 4G LTE and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. According to what we are now hearing. The device is actually being tested by multiple carriers around the world, but has an excellent disguise.
I for one am extremely excited to see what Samsung has in store for us, and pretty sure I’m not alone either.
