New Galaxy S III photos leak along with some specs
With a Samsung-hosted event just two days away, where the electronics giant is expected to officially unveil the Galaxy S III handset, new images of the handset have been shared online by SamMobile. The source also revealed that the phone will ship with Android 4.0.4 and confirms that the Galaxy S III is indeed the GT-I9300, as earlier reports maintained. A small chance remains that the phone picture below is just a dummy version, and is not representative of the final product, with the strongest supporting evidence coming from the three dedicated buttons at the bottom.
The pictured version is thinner than the current Galaxy S II, however. The source also confirmed that the rear camera is a 12-megapixel unit. An LED is also visible, which may be used for notifications of incoming messages. The software screen suggests the phone is a Brazilian version.
The handset may also be out as soon as mid-month. At the event, Samsung may also show off another handset, known so far only as the GT-I9800, according to the tipster.
