Samsung Galaxy S III Conflicting Specs: One More Leak


Things are starting to get a little nutty when it comes to the details of what hardware the Samsung Galaxy S III will be running at launch. Recently, we’ve heard several claims of how the smartphone would be configured, many from what appear to be reliable sources, and yet they manage to conflict with each other. Well, you can get ready to add one more set of figures to that mess, upon the release of leaked pages from what’s supposed to be a Galaxy S III service manual.

Largely, this looks like the GS3 we’ve been expecting, but the devil’s in the details. For instance, while Samsung’s recent statement seemed to confirm a 1.4GHz processor for handset, this document claims the phone will be running at 1.5GHz, instead. It’s a difference of little consequence, but just the fact that it’s inconsistent has us wondering what other details may not be as certain as they appear.

The mention of a 4.8-inch screen here is also an oddity, as what we’ve been hearing so far suggested we’d be dealing with a slightly smaller component. The opposite seems to be happening with the phone’s camera, and instead of the twelve megapixels that have been mentioned already, this document shows an eight-megapixel main sensor.

This is all a bit confounding, though it might possibly be explained by the various hardware versions we recently heard rumored; could more be changing between them than just the processors and radios?
