[Rumor] Leaked Samsung Galaxy S3 Pics; 1.8GHz CPU, 12MP Camera; Possibly Fake
We are reluctantly reporting this particular story, because it is very likely a fake. However, it seems interesting and plausible enough that we should report it, just in case it is a snafu instead. This supposedly leaked marketing pic has been floating around the web, and it details the progression of the Galaxy S line of phones, culminating with a Samsung Galaxy SIII (yes, that's three) device. Here are the specs mentioned in the pic for the SGS3:
- 1.8GHz Exynos 4212 dual-core processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 12MP camera
- 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display
There are a couple of things that make this particular pic suspect. One is that they call the screen a Super AMOLED Plus HD, but Samsung's actual name for it is HD Super AMOLED Plus. The second is that it shows the original Samsung Galaxy S device with an Exynos processor, but that chip didn't even exist when they released that phone. You would think their own marketing department wouldn't make either of these mistakes, but stranger things have happened...
What do you guys think? Real or Fake? If it is real, does it seem impressive?

That is seriously one of the worst looking mockups ever...haha... check out "COPYING" being misspelled. And who says "RAM memory"?
