Samsung Galaxy S III found in Kies, confirms GT-i9300 model number
SamMobile spotted a couple of references in Samsung's own Kies app that confirms that the GT-i9300 model is for the Samsung Galaxy S III. The Kies software, used for syncing, shows two variants of the Samsung Galaxy S III. One is labeled as the Samsung GT-i9300 and other is the Samsung GT-i9300T. The "T" could stand for a different radio frequency used in a different country or by a different carrier.

The Samsung Galaxy S III appears to be the GT-i9300

The Samsung Galaxy S III appears to be the GT-i9300

As far as the image is concerned, both show the Samsung GALAXY Note above the model number as a placeholder until the Korean based manufacturer introduces the Samsung Galaxy S III, expected on May 3rd. There has been speculation that Samsung would be making the Samsung Galaxy S III an incremental update in the same way that the Apple iPhone 4S followed the Apple iPhone 4 with an 8MP camera, dual-core processor and Siri. That same speculation calls for Samsung to use a different name for the phone instead of Samsung Galaxy S III. Pointing in that direction, Samsung's invitation for the May 3rd event where the device is expected to be introduced, called the model "The next Samsung Galaxy" as did sign up pages for Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse, both in the U.K.

If the leaked specs for the S3 are true then I'll save my money for something else, probably the Motorola Razr Maxx HD if the specs on it are accurate.

I like how the article specifies what these "incremental updates" might be. Also how you sourced where this speculation comes from.

It won be long now till we know for sure! Its seems the PA is the only website which continually states that the s3 will be an 'incremental' upgrade in every article

Whatever it is called next galaxy or galaxy s 3 doesn't really matter...as long as it comes with a quad-core, hd display and decent gpu (Expectations are not high from Mali400-MP4)...and ofcourse...a big fat battery :)

You want T-mobile, I want Verizon, So and so wants AT&T. With our luck it'll end up on the most random carrier and we are back to square one. Joking but thats how I felt about the GNote haha

A-15 dual core exynos 4212 at 1.4ghz 1gb of ram 1280*720 screen, highest score on antutu. Win for sammy again

The Exynos 4212 is A-9, not A-15.

Apparently not. Otherwise i seriously doubt a dual core would score that high. Sure the benchmark could be fake but i believe it for now until sammy says otherwise

It might be a quad-core and Engadget screwed something up with their source.

Exynos 4212 is A-9, not A-15. Exynos 5250 and 5450 are the ones that are A-15.
