The photo is said to have been taken while the handset was with the NCC (Taiwan National Communications Commission), which is an agency similar to the US Federal Communications Commission. In the photo, a sleek handset in white is shown.
Unfortunately, the photo did not reveal the phone’s specs. However, it does give us a better idea on what the device will look like if it does end up in shops. It is also a better photo compared to another photo that was leaked earlier during the week.
Samsung is yet to confirm if the handset will be arriving in the UK or not. However, since the phone has been spotted in the hands on a Taiwanese regulatory agency, this suggests that the handset will be making an appearance in Taiwan soon.
@evleaks first leaked the phone’s specs and photo on Twitter. According to the leak, the phone will sport a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED 720p display, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, 16GB of internal storage, support for as much as 32GB from a microSD card, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA, and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM for added performance.
The device is said to run Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) right off the bat with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI slapped on top of Android.
Although the handset is nothing compared to Samsung’s current flagship the Galaxy S3, it comes with more impressive specs compared to Galaxy S3 Mini. This suggests that the Galaxy Premier will be a better mid-range handset or more affordable high-end device, which can be a hit if the Korean tech giant offers it at a competitive price.
