Less than two weeks, that’s how much you have to wait until that special Samsung Unpacked event on May 3 in London when everything will be clear to everyone who is expecting the follow-up to the insanely successful Samsung Galaxy S II.
There’s been Apple-like buzz (and Cupertino-like secrecy) around the Galaxy S III but it looks like we might have a first look at what to expect. The device pictured above and the one starring in the video below is claimed to be the Galaxy S III. However, it’s not the Galaxy S III you’ll hold in your hand as it is encased in a dummy plastic case in order to protect its sexy looks.
You want specs? Here you go: 1.4GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 4.6-inch Super AMOLED HD display with 320 PPI, no hardware buttons (yay), eight-megapixel main camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording, 16GB internal storage (plus microSD card expansion slot), NFC, microSIM, 2,050mAh battery and Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWiz on top of it.
That being said, the Galaxy S III (or whatever the final name will be) is not a mystery anymore — granted that the above leak is legit — except for its final aspect. Check out the video below and let us know of your thoughts. HTC One X killer? Android king for a year?
For what it’s worth, the original story with the pictures and video are down which adds more credibility to the entire report. However, thanks to the Internet, there’s a copy floating around and more pictures at the Via link.
