Is this the Samsung Galaxy S III? Further Details Leak on Samsung’s Next Flagship

Today we were greeted with a rather surprising tip in our inbox. An anonymous source forwarded a snapshot of a slide supposedly shown as part of an internal presentation on smartphone evolution to carrier and retail representatives. The slide in particular detailed the progression of Samsung’s Galaxy S line, culminating in an image  of and some initial specs for the manufacturer’s next flagship device.

According to the image, the Galaxy S III will feature a dual-core 1.8GHz Exynos 4212 processor (no quad-core just yet), 2GB of RAM, a 12MP camera, and a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display. That screen technology would provide HD resolution without falling back on the PenTile technology found in Samsung’s current generation of HD displays. Our source noted that these particular displays are not fully baked at this point in time. The camera would deploy the W750 BSI CMOS sensor and the phone will feature LTE and NFC support. Unlike the upcoming Nexus Prime, the Galaxy S III will not use a curved display and the design language of the phone will apparently differ from the current Galaxy S lineup to avoid future legal issues. The GS3 is said to be even thinner than the GS2. While the handset will run on the upcoming Android Ice Cream Sandwich build, it will reportedly retain four physical buttons.

It should be noted that this information is unconfirmed at this time, and we would be remiss to not point out a few obvious flaws in the actual image. The original Galaxy S is listed as shipping with an Exynos CPU and other typos can be found. Could this be a clever fake? It’s definitely possible. Take it with a grain of salt but the details seem pretty spot on in most respects.

[Thanks to our anonymous friend!]

    btw, “COPIYING” and “Private Internal Presentation” just gave it all away. FAKE!

    The Hummingbird process is renamed Exynos:

    The only Cortex A8 1GHz processor was the Hummingbird and now it is the Exynos 3110.

    For the record, no private internal presentation I have ever viewed contained the words “Private Internal Presentation” on ANY part of the presentation. And everyone else already picked apart the word COPIYING, so I don’t really need to go there.

    • http://twitter.com/nicgillespie Nic

      I will say when I worked for Comcast everything that was for internal use said that it was private and for internal use only, and even put a footnote saying not to copy

  • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

    “Samsung Mobile Solution” gives away a fake too. Should be Solutions.

  • bolthouse

    this is bs lol….

  • Christopher Seavey

    Even if it were real, looks like software buttons to me…

  • Joseph A. Yager

    I would hope someone at Samsung would be able to throw together a much better presentation than this – I call fake, too.

  • http://twitter.com/AndrewKam Andrew Kam

    I’m pretty sure that’s a Sony Ericsson phone with a Samsung screenshot mixed together.

    These comments were entertaining. Thanks for the laugh anonymous tipster :p.

  • ari_free

    “and the design language of the phone will apparently differ from the current Galaxy S lineup to avoid future legal issues”

    Good because nobody liked it looking like an iphone either.

  • bmg314

    Ha!! And Krause thinks “the details seem pretty spot on”… What a buffoon.

  • skitchbeatz

    you’d think they would have internal images that would have transparent space behind the phones instead of whitespace. I call fake… but I certainly cannot wait to upgrade my GS to the GS3

  • Yorick Reuvekamp

    Clearly a photoshopped Samsung Wave: http://bit.ly/nCJMcw

  • ajpyoung

    if the SGS III is still going to be a Dual Core Handset then tsk, tsk, tsk … quads are coming out in December folks…

      That’s exactly it.

  • Jinwon Sung

    This is fake most likely. If anything, US won’t see SGS3 until late summer next year.

    WTB Tegra 3!

  • InspectorGadget80

    Looks like i waited the perfect time to get the SIII. While you guys on all carriers enjoy your SII my upgrade is next year just glad I got my Atrix few months ago so next year Ill be enjoying my Galaxy S III. Cant wait till CES 11′.

  • konsta819

    It’s not a ‘clever fake’. It’s an awful fake. Why on earth are you giving credence to your ‘anonymous source’ by posting it? He’s laughing his head off right now.

    Not worthy of reporting or reproduction.

  • The Forever phat phatmanXXL

    My sgs2 typically has 500+ megs of free ram, 2 gb is overkill. I don’t see the point. IMHO Samsung should work on making their radios more reliable than specs that aren’t really necessary for a cell phone.

    • zorxd

      If you don’t need a high-end phone than don’t buy the SGS3

  • KuZy Rogue

    I bet this fake pic is made by apple to reduce the sales of nexus prime :-)

  • afwafawfw

    Seems like there is finally a camera-button on the side

  • http://onlyourfriends.blogspot.com/ Charles Arnold

    You guys think the GS III is great? Just wait till you see the GS IV! It poops magic and money!!!!

    Sometimes i just shake my head at how obsessed we are with the next new “great” things, before the new has even worn off the current thing.x-x

  • http://twitter.com/kujayhawks77 Michael Radcliffe

    Is it that slow of news day that we’re forced to believe this is real?

  • PhilNelwyn

    This article is ridiculous.

  • http://twitter.com/Galaxy_S3_nl Samsung Galaxy S3

    Probably fake, looks a lot like the Wave and it has 4 buttons instead of 3!

  • Matt W

    Why even bother with something so clearly fake?

  • http://pharaohtechblog.blogspot.com/ Conan Kudo (ニール・ゴンパ)

    Samsung retroactively renamed the Hummingbird processor to the Exynos 3110.
    As you can see here[1], the Samsung Nexus S is mentioned to have the Exynos 3110, which we know is the Hummingbird processor.

    OMG !!

  • Yashpal Jadeja
  • Johan Miguel Alcantara Vargas

    hahahaha why would they use a simple power point template… dahhh….FAKEEEE

  • Steve Rodrigue

    Fake…

    - “Samsung Mobile Solution” instead of “Samsung Mobile Solutions”
    - Crappy design/layout.
    - Copiying instead of “copying”.
    - “Private Internal Presantation” is not “good English” probably translated by someone who does not speak English natively.

    I doubt Samsung would accept any of these errors/mistakes.

  • adi saranga

    thats a huge BULSHIT !!!!!

  • Yiğit Yeşilyurt

    Man, I want a quad core processor :( I hope they’ll change their minds and put a quad core processor in the phone, that would be revolutionary.

  • http://www.facebook.com/glmartinez3 George Martinez

    Whoever made the screenshot is important. The screen they’re using is a Cisco EX90, costing around $10k.

  • http://www.saholic.com/ Tarita Kulkani

    Features are great!
    It has 1.8GHz procesor, 12MP cam with CMOS sensor and Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS…..

    Oh yeah, I can really believe that Samsung officials would write “COPIYING” or “Private Internal Presentation” (LOL… -_-) on official presentation slides, or use those display images for their phones (you REALLY should know better, phandroid….). Plus, that “S III” is a slightly modified LG Jil Sander. WHAT A CHEAP FAIL you chose to post as “news”…

  • erni74

    Samsung Galaxy S gets Android Ice Cream Sandwich, i don’t belive it but its seems to be true and not a dream!

    Of course, we have no way of knowing, but I think this may be real. Why?

    (1) Koreans notoriously have a poor command of the English language. It’s not surprising for them to make spelling mistakes in an internal document. If this was a US company, sure, it would automatically point out for it to be fake. But, in the case of a Korean company, it’s more likely to be fake if there aren’t spelling mistakes in their internal documents.

    (2) Galaxy S III is correctly showing the five main icons of the Ice-Cream Sandwich, instead of four. How would they get this right, as the Ice-Cream Sandwich wasn’t unveiled until ten days later?

    Again, we have no way of knowing, but this has a good chance of being real.
