When you write about technology on a daily basis you can’t help but be fooled by fake photos every now and then, this is exactly what happened to Engadget, Phandroid and many other tech sites recently when they thought they had spotted some pretty amazing Samsung Galaxy S III technical specifications.
The image embedded below appears to show an early glimpse of some of the Galaxy S III from promotional material, however now most reputable websites believe it is fake, which is a shame as the specs revealed would have set a new standard for all smartphone manufacturers to follow.
If your eyes can cope with the blurry image you will see that it states that the Samsung Galaxy S III boasts a dual-core 1.8GHz Exynos 4212 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 12 megapixel camera on the rear and a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display – perhaps a Galaxy S III will be revealed with similar specs to this in the future, but for now don’t get too excited.
Back in late September we suggested that the Galaxy S III could well feature a 2.0GHz dual-core processor, a 4.65-inch display (1080p), 1.5GB of RAM, a 10 megapixel camera and a whopping 2,250MaH battery. As you can see the fake leaked specs which we spoke about earlier in this post aren’t too dissimilar to our previous suggestions, perhaps we will see something like this arrive in 2012, but we doubt this sort of tech will arrive in 2011.
As always we will keep you posted on the latest details regarding the Samsung Galaxy S III as and when we hear them, do you believe that the leaked image is fake? Leave us a comment below.
