As a formal announcement from Samsung is drawing near, more and more rumors regarding its yet unannounced Galaxy S III flagship smartphone emerge.
The device, initially expected to make an official appearance last month, was pushed back so that the handset vendor could apply final touches to it.
Apparently, the company is set to make it official on May 22nd during a press event set to take place in London, and a leaked invite to that conference is meant to confirm that.
On top of that, said press invitation also offers us a glimpse at what the mobile phone might look like, though it does not show its entire body.
From the leaked image, we can conclude that Samsung’s new Galaxy S III will be a slim device, boasting a design different from its predecessors, the popular Galaxy S II.
Moreover, the photo shows that it will feature a sleek metal casing on the outside, and that its lower end will slightly bend towards the back.
There are no keys present on the device’s front in this image, nor is there a microUSB port at the phone’s bottom, as other devices from Samsung usually feature, as GSMArena notes.
No specific info on what the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S III will pack inside was unveiled in said press invite, but previous rumors on this device did offer some unofficial details on the matter.
Running under Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, the handset will pack a quad-core application processor, complemented by at least 1GB of RAM.
Moreover, it will feature a large 4.65-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering an HD resolution, while packing an 8MP camera on the back (or a 12MP, according to other rumors).
Overall, the smartphone should top Galaxy S II both in hardware specs and in features and capabilities, but that is something that was expected from a new flagship device.
