Rumors on Samsung Galaxy S II sequel continue to pour in every day. Although we still don’t know for sure exactly when the smartphone is announced or any specs sheet details.
This is probably due to the fact that Samsung hasn’t decided yet when to launch the Galaxy S III. For all we know the smartphone might still be in development with features that could be introduced at the last minute.
with the alleged Galaxy S III have already leaked, but we don’t know for sure if they’re the real thing or simple mockups.
Today, we have new info on the Galaxy S III specs sheet, along with a brand new photo that might be a real thing.
However, this has to be taken with a grain of salt until Samsung comes forward with an official statement or more trustworthy sources confirm or denies it.
It appears that Dutch site GSM Helpdesk
has been tipped by an anonymous source that the Samsung Galaxy S III is still on track for a May 22 release, though we’re just been told by a Samsung China exec
that the smartphone will in fact be announced in April.
The unknown source also claims that the upcoming Galaxy S III will measure 131 x 64 x 8 mm and it will weigh around 125g (battery included). There’s a 1750 mAh Li-Ion battery inside, which has yet to be rated for autonomy. No word on wireless charging
It will boast an impressive 4.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus with HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution.
On the back, the smartphone sports an enhanced 12-megapixel camera with LED flash, autofocus and full HD (1080p@60fps) video recording. A slow-motion feature for the video camera has been reported as well.
The insides of the phone are a bit of a mystery, as the source only confirmed it would come with a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, but avoided any comments regarding the info that leaked a few days ago which said the Galaxy S III would be equipped with an Exynos all-in-one chipset.
It will also pack 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. No word on the microSD card slot, but 32GB onboard memory seems quite a lot.
In the connectivity front, the following features have been confirmed by the anonymous source: HSDPA+ (42Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76Mbps), Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and HDMI output. It’s also rumored that the phone will be able to handle “dual carrier HSPA.”
Last but not least, Samsung Galaxy S III will be powered by Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, but there’s nothing mentioned about TouchWiz UI.
We’re waiting for more sources to confirm at least some of these leaked features
. Until then we can only speculate on the Galaxy S III hardware and software configuration.
