Samsung Galaxy S III specs leak

While Android fans are eagerly waiting for the delayed launch of the Nexus Prime - also known as the Galaxy Nexus - details have leaked from Samsung regarding its own-brand next-generation smartphone: the imaginatively-named Galaxy S III.

Designed, you'll be amazed to hear, as the successor to its best-selling Galaxy S II - the one that caused Apple so much heartache - the leaked specs claim that the Galaxy S III will ship with a homebrew Exynos 4212 processor featuring two ARM processing cores running at 1.8GHz.

In addition, the handset is claimed to include 2GB of RAM - double that of the Galaxy S II, and four times that found in Apple's latest iPhone 4S handset - a 12 megapixel camera, and a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display with 1280x720 resolution.

According to Android-watcher Phandroid, the anonymous source of the slide - which is marked as a "private internal presentation" - also indicated that the handset will also include in-built Near Field Communications support and Long Term Evolution - or 4G - high-speed mobile broadband technology.

If true, Samsung could have a seriously hot device on its hands: looking purely at the numbers, it's more than twice as powerful as Apple's iPhone 4S and has four times the memory, along with a higher resolution display and camera.

Sadly, Samsung is keeping quiet, while certain errors on the slide hint that it could be a clever fake.
