Not long ago a couple of snapshots emerged of an allegedly Samsung GT-I9300 courtesy of PhoneArena and soon after a list of partial hardware specifications popped up too.
So far we know that GT-I9300 will sport a 4-inch 720p HD AMOLED touch screen, it will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and will be powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos processor with 1GB of RAM.
Add to the above list what we’ve just been told, that the GT-I9300 will arrive with an ARM Mali-400 MP graphics accelerator (GPU), features a 1280 x 720 p resolution display and we can now confirm that Samsung’s Exynos 1.4GHz dual-core processor will power the device which will run on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. Can we call it a mid-range device? probably not if we consider that Samsung GALAXY S II specs are pretty similar just by looking at the clocking speed of the CPU and the GPU which is the same on both devices.
Samsung GT-I9300 key specs:
- 4-inch 720p HD AMOLED display with 1280x720p
- Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich OS
- ARM Mali-400 MP GPU
- Samsung Exynos 1.4GHz dual-core CPU
- 1GB of RAM
Our source has no details about its release date but the rumor mill points to May.
