After not making an appearance at MWC2012 just like Samsung said it wouldn’t, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy S3 may finally have been spotted. Over at GSM Helpdesk, they’ve posted what is reportedly a leaked press image of Samsung’s latest flagship phone.
Also tucked away in the bottom right corner of the Galaxy S3 homescreen is a calendar widget that seems to be telling us when Samsung is going to take the wraps off: May 22nd at 7pm, which lines up with the revised date for Samsung Unpacked.
The shot above actually isn’t the first such image to leak. Just days ago, a slide from a presentation by Weber Shandwick — a global PR firm that counts Samsung among their many high-profile clients — made its way onto the web, too. In that image, there’s also a profile shot of the Galaxy S3, and it certainly looks slim.
According to GSM Helpdesk, it registers just 8mm on the calipers — everywhere except that camera hump, which reportedly hides a 12MP rear shooter. The two-tone color scheme resembles the workaround Samsung applied to the Galaxy 10.1 tablet in Germany to bypass the injunction issued after Apple cried foul.
No concrete specs have been revealed yet, but it’s thought that the Galaxy S3 will arrive with aSamsung Exynos 4412 processor with four cores clocked at 1.5GHz. Earlier leaks suggested a 1.8GHz dual-core chip, but changes to the Linux kernel in November pointed to the quad-core chip. An unnamed Samsung exec recently confirmed as much, and there’s a good chance we’ll know the rest of the SGS3 hardware details in advance of Unpacked at this rate.
