Samsung Galaxy S III appears in fake shell on leaked video, reveals some specs

The Samsung Galaxy S III hype and hysteria has gotten out of control recently, so we’ve avoided writing about most of the fake renders and supposed leaked photos of the device. But since Vietnamese website Tinhte has moving video and is speaking in a language I don’t understand, that’s totally a new wrinkle to the story that should be highlighted.

Pictured below is one of the supposed Galaxy S III devices, only its not really the GSIII. Samsung has reportedly wrapped the phone in a generic body so it could be tested without being snooped or fawned over by greedy bloggers before Samsung has a chance to properly introduce the device in London on May 3. Despite this being a mystery wrapped in an enigma, a tour of the phone on video allows us to discover some Galaxy S III specs.

The supposed GS III has a 4.6-inch screen at 720 x 1184 resolution, a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor, 16 GB of storage and microSD slot, 1 GB RAM, and a 8 megapixel camera. The shell has dual flash LED’s, and we’ll probably see the same in the real GS III. There’s also a 2,050 mAH battery with NFC capabilities. (Note: the video maker mentions AMOLED, but I’m not sure what kind. Previous rumors suggest the phone has a Super AMOLED+ screen.)

Take a look at the video below to see the phone in action. It doesn’t reveal too much other than what I’ve already stated, but it’s a good way to get intrigued and ready for May.
