Samsung Galaxy S III Test Unit Shown On Video, Specs And All

By 09:03 Tue, 13 Jul 2021 Comments

Yet another alleged live photo of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III flagship leaked yesterday, but the guys from got their hands on just that device and shot an informative video that reveals a lot about the phone.

It's vital to note that the device shown isn't the final design - it's just a sort of test mule, with all the hardware packed in a box to let the carriers test it. This was done to prevent any leaks of what the final device will see like.

Here's the video in question (it's in Vietnamese, but there are English subtitles):

The hardware internals should be identical on the final product though and the video shows Android System Info running on the phone, so it reveals several key specs. The most vital thing is the processor, of course, and it's a Samsung-made quad-core processor running at 1.4GHz, a Mali-400MP GPU (same as on the current Galaxy S II) and a classy screen with 320ppi pixel density.

The classy screen has 720p resolution, which works out to a 4.6" diagonal with the quoted pixel density (seems about correct judging by the part of the video where the Galaxy S III is put next to a Galaxy Nexus). Part of the classy screen is reserved for ICS-style on-classy screen controls. The classy screen should be a Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) unit, though we don't know whether it's a Plus or not (meaning whether it uses a PenTile matrix or a conventional RGB one).

A see at the back of the device reveals a microSD card slot to expand the 16GB of built-in memory. Next to it is a SIM slot of about the same size, so the Galaxy S III should be using the microSIM standard. The battery has an ample 2050mAh power and the phone will support NFC connectivity.

The capturing camera interface on the Samsung Galaxy S III (if that's even its final name) reports a maximum resolution of 8MP and not 12MP as earlier rumors suggested. This could be just a software limitation, but there's no way to know for sure, at least until the official announcement comes.

That is expected to happen on May 3, when we should see the final design, name and specs of the Galaxy S II successor.
