Did the Samsung Galaxy S III Just Get Leaked On Video?

By Sam Gibbs on at

We saw some leaked shots of the Samsung Galaxy S III earlier in the week, but now the Vietnamese site Tinhte has apparently got its hands on the new flagship phone and has a video to prove it, complete with a specs run down.

Unless you speak Vietnamese, the commentary to the video might not make much sense, but you can still look at the pretty pictures. Apparently the Galaxy S III will come packing a gorgeous looking 4.6-inch screen with a 720x1184 resolution, which works out at around 320DPI, so it’ll be super crisp. A quad-core 1.4GHz chip seems to be humming inside, while 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage should mean Ice Cream Sandwich is happy.

It’ll also apparently have a microSD slot; an 8-megapixel camera, and a 2,050mAh battery with NFC, to power you through the day. According to Tinhte the phone they got was covered in a dodgy-looking plastic surround to disguise it, so it won’t look exactly like that when released; at least they’ll be something to be surprised by at the launch next month.

While this could be utter claptrap, the video and previous rumours combine to make this look at least vaguely credible, and Tinhte has got some things spot-on in the past. Check out the video above, which Engadget kindly grabbed before it went private, and let us know what you think – utter rubbish, or are we looking at a disguised Galaxy S III right there?
