While we’re tucking this image nicely away in the rumor category given all the supposed Galaxy S III images we’ve seen over the past few days, it’s being given the official crown thanks to an overseas tech blog. The folks at GSMHelpDesk believe they have gotten their hands on an official looking press photo along with some “concrete” specs on the Galaxy S III.
Accompanying the image are specs close to what we’ve already heard before: a 4.7″ Super AMOLED Plus HD display with 720p resolution and 313ppi, 12-megapixel camera with 1080p 60fps video recording with some special features like slow motion and time-lapse included. That quad-core processor we just heard about? Yup, that’s included as well at 1.5GHz (Exynos?) along with 1GB of RAM, 32GB’s of internal storage and a 1750mAh battery. The overall thickness of the phone is said to be 8mm.
One thing to note as the boys from PocketNow have pointed, the bottom part of the phone in the image only shows three capacitive buttons, which could indicate a faked image or just a bad render. Another questionable part of the image lies in the older version of TouchWiz running, while a previously (faked) leaked photo was shown with the newest version of TouchWiz.
Now to throw a little another twist into this story thanks to Samsung China Chief Executive Kim Young-ha who told reporters that the Galaxy S III could be released in April, instead of May. Given that we’ve heard Samsung hopes to launch the phone simultaneously around the world, we’ve got hope that the US and T-Mobile in general will be a part of that first wave of Galaxy S III launches.
