Leaked Samsung Galaxy S III surfaces in Vietnam

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Cell Phones, Handhelds, Rumors, Videos

Normally we wouldn’t trust leaks that come out of Asia since you have to take them with a grain of salt due to the fact that there are so many realistic fakes out there, but on occassion, there are some newsworthy items. Such is the case for the Samsung Galaxy S III, which was spotted on Vietnamese site Tinhte.

Currently, the smartphone goes by the mundane name of GT-I9300. However, if Samsung plans on sticking to its current naming scheme it’ll be called the Galaxy S III, and it should be fantastic. According to Tinhte, the phone boasts a 4.6-inch display with 720 x 1184 resolution. The phone is powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smoothly. The phone features 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of built-in storage that's expandable using the micro SD slot. For those that are addicted to Instagram, you’ll be able to shoot away using the 8 megapixel camera, and the phone is also equipped with NFC.

Since this is a prototype, expect the external look of the phone may change slightly. We’re assuming that Samsung will drop the tacky plastic rim around the handset, for example. Samsung has gone on the record by neither denying nor claiming the GT-I9300 as the next Galaxy S III, only stating “We will be able to tell you more at the 2012 Samsung Mobile Unpacked.” So we’ll just have to wait and see. Until that time, enjoy the video of the leak above.

Leaked Photos of the HTC Incredible 4g

The HTC Incredible 4G has been kept under wraps leaving us to only guess what the phone might be like. Well, thanks to a quality leak we now have the specs and pictures of the phone.

Android Police reports that the phone has about a 4-inch high definition display (this is only a visual guess,) and is powered by a 1.2 GHz processor with 1GB of RAM, and (of course) will run on Verizon's LTE network. It'll run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the gate alongside Sense 4. The smartphone will also feature an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and a VGA-front-facing camera, NFC, MHL, and Beats Audio support. The estimated price is in the neighborhood of $99-$149 with a two year contract.

Check out more photos after the jump and let us know what you think!
