Previously, @evleaks, a Twitter account, leaked the Samsung GT-I9260 (believed to be the Galaxy Premier) as well as the phone’s specs. Now, it has done it again and revealed another image of the smartphone. The new photo shows a picture of a cartoon-like girl on the smartphone’s display.
Previous leaks claim that the rumoured smartphone will pack a Super AMOLED+ screen measuring 4.65 inches, an 8-megapixel primary camera, a 2-megapixel secondary camera, 8 or 16GB of onboard storage, a microSD card slot for added storage, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
Samsung’s latest release is the Galaxy S3 Mini. It is a mid-range handset with nowhere near the specs of the Galaxy S3, but looks similar to the Korean firm’s flagship. The Galaxy Premier, on the other hand, resembles the Galaxy Nexus, which is the first smartphone to run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
Currently, Samsung has not yet confirmed the existence of the rumoured smartphone. However, word on the street is, it will be released in Europe in December. The handset is said to cost around €400 (roughly £321).
Based on this price tag and the phone’s specs, it will either be a cheaper high-end smartphone or one of the better mid-range offerings from Samsung.
With this price, why would you choose the Galaxy Premier instead of the cheapest version of the SIM-free Galaxy S3 at £409? The Galaxy S3 is powered by an outdated version of Android (Ice Cream Sandwich). Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) has now rolled out to SIM-free versions and S3s offered on some phone networks (O2, Three, and Vodafone). However, the update is a huge file, meaning it will take quite some time to download. The Galaxy Premier is said to run Jelly Bean right out of the box, which means no hassle.
