In just a couple of hours, the whole world will be able to see the next Samsung Galaxy S and the rumours will lose their appeal. Until then, we get to take a sneak peak at the Samsung Galaxy S3 boot screen.
One of BGR's trusted sources has leaked some pictures, allowing us to see the premiere of the handset's screen. As a teaser, the picture is not very exciting.
Still, we can confirm the device's codename of GT-I9300, as previously rumoured. The Galaxy S3 name is also confirmed, despite previous predictions that it might be introduced as the "Next Galaxy".
Samsung's highly anticipated smartphone is supposed to have a high resolution display of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, a 12-megapixel camera and a 4.8in highly sensitive display. Galaxy S3 will undoubtedly come with support for Android Ice Cream Sandwich, right out of the box.
When it comes to the processor, there is still a debate. Samsung might decide to use a proprietary quad-core processor, which will offer HSPA baseband technology.
Alternatively, according to recent rumours, Galaxy S3 might feature a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, as suggested by an agent profile from Verizon.
The phone will be launched at an invite-only event in London where ITProPortal.com will be reporting via Rob Kerr, our mobile editor.
