Following in the well documented footsteps of a number of other major mobile handset manufacturers over recent years the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S III have recently been leaked well ahead of its 2012 release.
If rumours are to be believed the new Samsung Galaxy S III will be significantly improving on the hugely successful Samsung SII according to the information allegedly released due to a mistake by an employee of Samsung.
Like the rumours that are slipping out about the Apple iPhone 5 there is no guarantee that these new specs are accurate but it is believed that the handset will ship in 2012 with the latest Android OS, the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 (who makes up these OS names?). This is the most likely part of the rumour considering the date that the Samsungwas released and the fact other handsets are rumoured to be releasing with the same OS at around the same time.
Other than the 2GHz quad-core processor, the Samsung Galaxy S III will have 1.5GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 10MP camera. Other rumoured specifications include a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1280 x 1024p resolution, possible support for the new high-speed 4G LTE technology and a 10 megapixel camera, which is an upgrade from the 8 megapixel camera currently available on the.
If true, these specs look to be quite impressive but the one question that probably needs answering now is why manufacturers are consistently the victims of alleged leaks and why they can’t just release provisional specifications for their handsets.
