Surprise! Latest round of Galaxy S III details differ from previous rumors

Surprise! Latest round of Galaxy S III details differ from previous rumors

Of all the Android releases we’ve covered, the Samsung Galaxy S III has been the most talked about.  With an almost Apple-like secrecy, the Samsung phone has been the product of few actual leaks but tons of rumors and conflicting reports.  Such is the case today as yet another batch of hardware details arrives online.  As is with nearly everything we’ve seen these past few weeks, the hardware differs slightly from other stories.

Unofficial Samsung blog SamMobile has obtained what they claim to be a scan from the user manual of the lusted-after handset.  What’s more, they have a fresh set of details to go along with it.  The deets match up (for the most part) with what we’ve heard but aren’t a perfect fit. They’re source advises a 1.5GHz processor which flies directly in the face of Samsung’s brand new 1.4GHz CPU  Other specs include an 8-megapixel camera as opposed to rumors of  an admittedly lofty 12-megapixel shooter, and a 4.8-inch screen, differing from a 4.7-inch screen.

So what’s to believe and what should be relegated to the trash bin?  We suppose it might not be all that hard to consider that multiple hardware iterations are being tested and leaked across the internet.  Remember that not every Galaxy S II was the same across the board.  Why should it be the case for its successor?

Thankfully we are but days from finding out what’s really going to happen with the Galaxy S III.  We just hope that the U.S. models are announced at or around the same time as we can’t take much more of this rumor mill stuff.
