The Samsung Galaxy S III is shrouded with a cloud of mystery thanks to Samsung taking security extremely seriously, but this time the Galaxy S III might have finally leaked out. Vietnam’s Tinhte known for magically getting early access to the industry’s most wanted devices, is on it again with what looks like the S III.
Now, to be perfectly exact the handset you’re looking at is the Samsung GT-I9300, as the model number testifies. We’ve seen leaks of such a device numerous times, but previously it was rumored to have a non-HD screen, something that made us doubt whether it’s the Galaxy S III. Now, the technical details obtained by the Vietnamese tech blog paint a different picture.
Here are the spec highlights of the upcoming device:
There’s obviously a front-facing camera as well, but there are no details about the actual resolution. So obviously, this fits the Galaxy S III image everyone expects well.
Now, while we're convinced by the leaked specifications, we have a hard time believing that we're looking at the final design of the S III. We've been hearing that Samsung is using custom boxes to mask the S III, and Tinhte confirms that this is the case with what you see below as well. Our guess is that the handset will have different looks when it gets official, possibly matching what's inside the shell here.
Finally, the most solid argument about this leak is a video of the handset in action. You can check it out below, but in either case it’s two more weeks until Samsung confirms or denies this all officially. You can however let us know now whether you think that’s the Galaxy S III and how do you like it.

it is real. the design is same as what has been leaked. so nothing special. looks like the camera module is same as the one on Galaxy S2 (same size for the lens).

I hope Samsung change the design because this one looks so boring and generic, no design flair whatsoever.

This is the closet to being legit leak I have seen. Disappointed with touchwiz, still to gingerbread-ish - not overly impressed with the design.

It's a real GT9300, but I think it's not Galaxy S3. In the video he said that it's only the developer version, that's why the design and the camera are quite the same as S2. But the things we know for sure are Mali400 GPU (disapointed, the same as... Allwinner A10) and the 720p SA (Plus?) screen. Or maybe it's the Galaxy M.

For all the people hoping it is the Galaxy M, the M line is the middle range phone. 720p and a quad for middle range is crazy.

well if sammy's middle range is a quad-core, their high-end is beyond imagination. lol just joking

Looks pretty accurate, and this is probably it, or close to it. Though it's looks don't appeal to me and I'm not a fan of TouchWiz on ICS. It looked ok on Gingerbread, but I'd prefer Sense 4 any day before this.
