Samsung May Release a GT-i9800 Model Too

Another picture of a dummy (or real) version of the Galaxy S3 has surfaced, this time in a higher resolution. Alongside some technical details, the tipster also claims that Samsung may release another model of the next Galaxy, internally known as GT-i9800.

These images show a possibly version of the Samsung Galaxy S3, one that has the GT-i9300 model number and has been manufacturer in Brazil, in April 2012. Moreover, it comes pre-packed with Android 4.0.4, the latest version of Ice Cream Sandwich.

The same version was captured by a Gizmodo Brasil member two weeks ago, but no technical details were made public. Back then, sources stated that Samsung may use this model to test actual Galaxy S3 internals, without attracting attention.

The second part of the rumour speaks about a GT-i9800 sibling, one that could turn to be destined for the US market. Previous rumours claimed that US may receive a different build of the S3, one which will come packed with a Snapdragon S4 chip instead of the already confirmed Exynos 4412.

The phone will be launched this coming Thursday at an invite-only event in London where will be reporting via Rob Kerr, our mobile editor.
