You know that saying: if something seems too good - or far freakin' fetched - to be true, it probably is? We’ll that’s exactly the story with the latest round of Samsung Galaxy S III rumours.
A purported press image leaked alongside a full serving of outrageous specs, but it’s all been confirmed as pure fantasy.
The details were reported by Concept Phones, and had supposedly come via some dude called Ivan Ilchenko, who spotted them on Samsung’s official page on VKontakte – a Russian social network. Phew.
However, Samsung Russia later clarified: “The mock-ups, published in the article on Concept-Phones.com, were posted in the “Imagined Phones” section of “Samsung Phones Owners’ Club” group on VKontakte.ru.
"This section contains unofficial artworks and designs, created by group members, and are products of pure imagination, sometime even a joke.”
We’d been told to expect a stylus-rawkin’ 5in Samsung Galaxy S III, with a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 1.5GHz processor, 1280x720 resolution display, 12MP camera with not one but two flashes, a thickness of 9mm, and choice of 32 or 64GB storage.
Crazier still, this imagined Samsung Galaxy S III was said to run both Android and bada.
Ah well, back to the drawing board. We're expecting the Samsung Galaxy S III to land at Mobile World Congress in February.
