Samsung Galaxy S III specs leaked?

Samsung Galaxy S III specs leaked?The Samsung Galaxy S II has been one of the best-selling Android handsets ever here in the UK, but now it's time to look forward to what the next generation has in store with the Galaxy S III.

Phandroid has published what it says is a slide from an internal presentation at Samsung showing a list of juicy specs the next-gen Galaxy S III has on board. Is it accurate? Well, we don't know... but we sure hope so.

The site reckons the S III will land sometimes next year and bring with it a mammoth list of top specs including a 1.8GHz dual-core processor (Exynos 4212) plus 2GB of RAM.

The display will be top notch, as you'd expect from Sammy, featuring a 4.6in Super AMOLED HD display but missing the Pentile technology Samsung currently uses. It'll be flat like the current Galaxy line, rather than curved to match Samsung's Nexus handsets.

LTE and NFC (ideal for Google Wallet) are a given - and the spec that's likely to get us all reaching of our credit cards: a 12MP camera with W750 BSI CMOS sensor. Wow.

As is the norm with these kind of things, we have to warn you to keep some salt close by so you can grab a pinch. And there are a few things here that we can't explain that do raise our eyebrows a little.

For example, the Galaxy S III will apparently have four hardware buttons on the front, despite us being under the impression that, in all probability, Android's Ice Cream Sandwich (which will power this) won't need them.

Some of the other specs don't match up with those we've seen touted on 4Chan and, most importantly, there are a few spelling mistakes which you wouldn't expect on an official site.

Still, it's always good to look at these things and get the blood pumping with anticipation. In the meantime, hopefully, we'll soon have the Nexus Prime to fill the interim gap.

SGS2 is the best phone in the world... EVEN when the SGS3 comes out!

If these are the S3 specs, I might leave it for another upgrade cycle tbh...
