Samsung Hercules leaks again, flaunting a respectable Quadrant score

Samsung Hercules leaks again, flaunting a respectable Quadrant score
That athlete of a phone Samsung Hercules has leaked again in the wild Canadian prairies, destined for Telus. This time the guys managed to snap a picture up close and personal, and also ran a quick Quadrant test.

Just the dry listing of specs can make you drool - 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display with 480x800 pixels, dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 chipset, 8MP camera recording Full HD 1080p video, 1GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory, 42Mbps HSPA+ radio, MHL port and NFC thrown in for good measure.

As if that's not enough to make you switch carriers, the Samsung Hercules is said to have exactly the Infuse 4G dimensions of 5.20 x 2.80 x 0.35" (132 x 71 x 9 mm), which means an extremely svelte body.

This beauty packs some serious punch in it, too - the 3359 Quadrant score out of the box is pretty high up there, even for a dual-core handset. Such an achievement makes all our worries that Samsung is not using its own Exynos chipset inside the Hercules melt as snow in early spring.

Too bad that leaked docs from T-Mobile peg its appearance for the end of October, but good things come to those who wait.

I see what you do, Sammy... So, Samsung will put the powerfull, but expensive Exynos into the prototype, then they'll make a photo session with quadrant scores, next is the official announcement of the "most powerful" device ever created, marketing, ads, bla-bla...and at the end, they will put cheap, slow Snapdragon for the final production and they will sell it to the masses...

If the date is really Oct 27...I'll be long gone with the Nexus release. Jesus with all of the other Samsung galaxy SII's out, and the Prime possibly already out, T-Mobile will have effectively killed any meaningful hype this phone deserves. Thunder and lightening will have passed!
