The first press photo of Galaxy Premier leaked online last week, along with its price tag and most of its specs.
According to the latest hearsay, the smartphone should hit shelves in Q4 2012, though we don’t have a clear release date for this one yet.
Although Samsung has yet to make the Galaxy Premier official, the first benchmark scores for the device have just started to surface, which indicates that the handset is close to being unleashed on the market.
For those unfamiliar with Galaxy Premier, the smartphone is said to be powered by a dual-core Cortex-A9 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, which is complemented by 1GB of RAM.
The Galaxy Premier tested in AnTuTu benchmark seems to a Chinese variant probably offering TD-SCDMA support. However, this shouldn’t weigh on benchmark results at all.
It is also worth mentioning that this leak confirms Samsung Galaxy Premier will be shipped with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box.
Another strong point of the Android phone might be the stunning 4.65-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution and 16 million colors.
Samsung Galaxy Premier is likely to come in two versions, depending on region: 8GB and 16GB. Both variants will sport microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
On the back, the device boasts an enhanced 8-megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, which probably features the same module as Galaxy S III. There’s also a secondary 2-megapixel front-facing camera as well.
The Galaxy Premier is expected to be launched on the market by the end of the year for 480 EUR (620 USD) off-contract. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
