Samsung Galaxy S III Shows Up in Vietnam (Video)

The final product's specs sheet is subject to change

Although Samsung is strictly safeguarding the Galaxy S III’s design, most of its specs are not a secret anymore. Leaks and rumors from sources in the industry that already tested the device offered us a pretty good idea on Galaxy S III’s specs sheet.

We already know that Samsung is trying to conceal the final product’s design by putting the Galaxy S III components in generic cases. This is why the alleged Galaxy S III photos that leaked online in the past few weeks look a bit different.

Vietnamese site Tinhte, known for previously leaking the Samsung Galaxy Tab, has just posted a short video and some photos of the Samsung Galaxy S III in action.

If you don’t know Vietnamese, have no fear as the video has English subtitles and  speaks for itself as well. Apparently, the dummy unit presented as Galaxy S III by the folks at Tinhte comes with three on-screen buttons.

Obviously, it runs Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and features only an 8-megapixel rear camera. This is a bit curious as latest rumors claimed the Galaxy S III would come with an improved 12-megapixel camera.

However, given the fact that this is just a test sample, the final product might indeed come with a 12-megapixel photo snapper, as previously rumored.

Codenamed GT-I9300, the smartphone boasts an impressive 4.6-inch HD (720 x 1184 pixels) capacitive touchscreen display with 320 DPI.

The phone seems to be powered by a 1.4 GHz Exynos quad-core processor, which is complemented by a Mali-400MP graphics processing unit and 1GB of RAM. There’s also 16GB of internal memory, which can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.

Samsung Galaxy S III comes with a huge 2050 mAh Li-Ion battery, which should provide quite a long autonomy. It is also worth mentioning that Galaxy S III will be shipped with NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities on board. Check out the video below.
