Samsung Galaxy Premier GT-I9260 Leaks, Doesn’t Sound Like A New Nexus


Back in August, we heard about the Samsung GT-i9260, an upcoming Android that was getting some attention as being a contender for the next Nexus model. At least, its model number certainly seemed to imply a connection to the first Galaxy Nexus. We later heard the model referred to as the Galaxy Premier and checked out an image apparently captured by the phone’s camera hardware. Now, though, a possible leaked pic and some new specs for the 9260 have arrived, once again referring to the phone as the Galaxy Premier, and making it look like a slightly lower-end version of the Galaxy S III more than anything else.

On the plus side, these specs are a little better than some earlier ones we saw attributed to this model, then mentioning a disappointing single-core 1GHz SoC that was almost too low-end to believe, but now claiming the Premier will arrive with a 1.5GHz dual-core chip. It’s supposed to have a 4.65-inch 720p display, eight-megapixel main camera (two-megapixel front-facer), and either 8GB or 16GB flash storage with microSD expansion.

The phone’s dimensions match earlier rumors, making it just a bit smaller than the GS3, though also a tiny bit thicker. From the sound of all this, we wouldn’t expect the Galaxy Premier to be much more than a slightly-more-budget-priced alternative to some of Samsung’s more cutting-edge handsets.
