Samsung Galaxy Premier specs confirmed as first image appears

The Samsung Galaxy Premier is one step closer to reality today as the hardware details have been confirmed by tech site Mobile Geeks (translate).  Bearing the model number of GT-I9260, the Premier looks to fall somewhere in between the Galaxy S III and Galaxy S III Mini.

Details include a 4.65-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display (same size as Galaxy Nexus), a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera, 8GB or 16GB internal storage, and microSD expansion.  Powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Premier features two capacitive buttons and one physical button, and comes with support for 14.4 Mbps HSDPA, 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS, and DLNA.

Don’t get your hopes up for seeing a Galaxy Premier in the United States as it sounds like this is one of those international models that gets scattered across Europe.  Pricing is rumored to be €480, or roughly $620 US dollars.
