Samsung GALAXY S III gets pictured?


Do you still fancy allegedly Samsung GALAXY S III leaks? I’m asking because there is a new image on the loose of the phone but this time its a real life picture, not a render.

Introducing himself as “a friend of a Samsung employee in a respectable position” who sent him an allegedly photo of what he claims it is (or not) the upcoming GALAXY S III. This “friend” has posted the picture seen above on Reddit.

He also took care to through in some comments regarding SGS III hardware specifications saying he called his friend to ask him about it, so there you go:

Ok he gave me some specs as well. He said that it will possibly have two optional launchers, ICS with touchwiz overlay and vanilla ICS. They aren’t 100 percent sure if they will stick with touchwiz or have the dual launcher option. If they go dual, you will have the option of picking which one to use at startup, and you can change any time. He said it has a 4.7 inch screen that nearly takes up the whole phone, but some bezel space was needed for the camera, , speakers, mic, and so cases would fit on it. He said it WILL be HD and have a ceramic “micro arc oxidation” back.”

I just called him and asked him about some of the more detailed specs. He said the processor is a quad core Exynos (spelling?) 4412. The screen is Super Amoled Plus with HD. The camera is a 12 megapixel with flash. 2 gigs of ram. And it is exactly 8 millimeters thick, and no bump this time around, just “smooth”. 2250 milla-amp/hour battery, but no wireless charging.

edit: my apologies, when he was naming off the specs i listed the processor incorrectly. Made the fix.

Do you think this is the real deal? or just another Photoshoped disappointment?
