Samsung Galaxy S III user manual creates confusion

By Alan Ng - Apr 27, 2012

While Android lovers all over the world patiently wait for Samsung’s May 3rd unveiling of the Galaxy S III superphone, confusion has started to occur due to an apparent ‘official’ user manual which details some of the hardware specs featured in the device.

If you have been keeping up to date with the vast quantities of ‘leaked’ spec lists for the device, you’ll know that there have been some contrasting results over the last few weeks. For starters, the device is heavily expected to be equipped with a Samsung built Exynos 1.4Ghz quad-core processor, but contained in the manual is actually a reference to a ‘1.4Ghz quad-core processor’ instead.

There’s also some contradicting evidence regarding the battery as well, as the manual states that the device will feature an 8 megapixel camera, when previous rumors have hinted of a 12 megapixel shooter. The other major talking point, is that accompanied with the manual are a few sketches of the Samsung Galaxy S III and one sketch in particular shows that there is apparently a physical home button.

If you have been keeping with the latest rumors, you’ll know that the next generation Galaxy S smartphone seemingly won’t have a physical home button, since the Ice Cream Sandwich OS doesn’t require one. It’s well worth taking a look at the information and images over at SamMobile here. We have a feeling that many of you won’t be too bothered about what type of quad-core processor is, but the existence of a physical home button may be disappointing for some of you.

Would the Galaxy S III be better suited without a physical home button in your opinion or not?
