New leak shows alleged image of Samsung Galaxy S III; specs include quad-core Exynos processor
After an image alleged to be that of the heavily anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III was posted on Reddit yesterday, we have another leak today. Also found on Reddit, the image of what is claimed to be the Samsung Galaxy S III was posted by a friend of a Samsung employee who also tipped his bud to some of the specs on the model. According to this so-called Samsung insider, the Samsung Galaxy S III will have a 4.7 inch screen that is characterized as being a Super AMOLED Plus screen with HD. Under the hood will be a quad-core Exynos 4412 processor. There will be 2GB of RAM aboard along with a 12MP camera (with flash). A 2250mAh battery will be powering the device and the whole phone is just 8mm thick thin.

Based on the information from the insider, Samsung is considering offering the Samsung Galaxy S III with Android 4.0 installed and TouchWiz on top of it, or giving the user the option to toggle between the latter and a stock Android 4.0 experience. Also, the unit will have a ceramic “micro arc oxidation” back.

Obviously, we can't say that this is the real deal, nor can we be quick to say it is a fake. Just file this in the back of your mind and as more details emerge, we can get an idea of what the Samsung Galaxy S III will really look like.

Please no..... not this 2250MAH is sick i was expecting something close to 4000 after the razr maxx plus we want a world phone GSM/CDMA (most awaited feature for us) all aluminium unibody something better than asus/apple offering (s2 does feel quite cheap in comparison) if possible do include the note stylus feature and an infrared sensor with remote learning feature like in sony tablet s or better it just doesnt matter even if u make it 1mm thicker than s2 will be more comfortable to hold afterall dont make it a 4s launch like....sad

I have an HTC Evo and love it and use an extended battery and can't live without it! I can go 48 hours easy with little to moderate use being around 30 hours on a single charge. It troubles me that the new Motorola Razor Maxx and soon to come out HTC One X having built-in batteries. This is a no go for me, no matter how good the phone is. I don't want Android phones turning into i-phones. This new Samsung 3 looks great. Do these things and the phone would be king. #1-thicker-longer lasting battery (something in the area of 2250-3,000), good 720 hd display, wireless charging 1-2 meters from the base (requiring nothing else), quad core 1.5 and up, and a nice shutter free 8 plus megapixel camera with plenty of storage space and I will buy in a minute :)

either way you look at it the gs2 won best handset of 2011 so sammy will be looking at doing the same for this year by having better specs and design.

4.7" screen -- Possible (Galaxy Nexus has 4.65" and without the bottom touch-android button space, the screen will be 4.35" -- Perfect imho) SuperAMOLED-PLUS HD ----- Possible only if Samsung decided to stop pentile matrix displays, ELSE A BIGGG NOOOO... 12MPx camera with flash ------ Possible 2GB RAM ------ Hard to believe, but possible as GPU shares from this pool of memory for the 720p display... 2250mAh battery on 8mm thin body ------ Possible i Samsung worked hard like Motorola... QuadCore Eynos 4412 processor ------ Possible... Ceramic Micro Arc Oxidation Back -------- WHATEVER IT MAY BE, possible --------------------------------------------------​---------------------------- SAMSUNG giving users the option to toggle between STOCK Android 4.0 and TouchWiz --------- NOT AT ALL POSSIBLE...

as far as that last bit, on ICS, phone makers are longer allowed to remove the "Hologram UI" from android anymore, so technically even if they dont make it easy for you to switch to stock, stock is still under there waiting to be found. My guess is non-pentile. They go back and forth with generations with it. pentile to get there, then they adjust it to RGB.. then pentile to get to 720p, now they should be adjusting it to RGB. With the increase in pixels and resolution, the memory should be 1.5g-2gig.

if its a fake, its better than the last few fakes. who knows. we will all find out shortly enough. hold your darn horses. no matter what the SGS3 is, its going to be a class leading device. Samsung hasnt screwed up on the last 2 SGS models, they are not going to screw the pooch on what is argueably their most important device to date. HTC,Huawai, and others (maybe the i5) are seriously stepping up their game this year. Samsung is not going to release a minor update. Chill out.

There's a good change this could be all made up, BUT Samsung has been pretty aggressive lately and this looks like the kind of s**t they would pull to "Destroy" the competition... Hope it's the real. It it is.... HOLY s**t !!!

i doubt the battery has 2250mah, the size is only a little bigger than sgs2 which have only 1650mah

I think most people on this are missing the point at the end of the day sammy wants to be the best and this is what the majority of the public why why do fandroids keep saying its all fake yet this is what they all want.This is coming from someone who owns a sW n83gs and lumia 800

Hmmm.... Deja Vu! All of this feels so familiar after the Galaxy Nexus speculation / disappointment a few months ago. Just wait for the announcement!!!!!!

if i can tell what i want to be on s3: - 4.7-4.8 inc screen - 2gb ram (i want that much and i doubt it will be more) - 2or4core soc (just that it's better than the rest of the competition cpu and graphic) - at least 8mp or more (8 is enough coz of the storage space and it is better to have better quality small picture than bad big one) - it would be nice that it have 32gb internal storage and micro sd slot - i would like if the buttons stays the same than s2 have (add camera button) - 720p (would be enough) - battery that last at least 18 hours on above average usage

I also would like the Home button. That is why I bought the international version of the S II.

No. This is test product, must run on basic android. Touchwiz it's only a launcher.
