Alleged early Samsung Galaxy S3 manual and render leak


Alleged early Samsung Galaxy S3 manual and render leak
Samsung's unprecedented secrecy about the Galaxy S3 has paid off so far, despite that the days that ramp up to its May 3 unveiling saw a fair amount of leaks. 

We still haven't seen the design, but the latest unauthorized report today is a page derived from the service manual on a Samsung GT-I9300, which shows a render with a physical home button, just as rumored. A 4.8" Super AMOLED screen is listed, of the MIPI (C-type) variety, which allegedly means an HD RGB Super AMOLED.

The specs reveal an 8MP camera, like what we saw on the early GT-I9300 prototype last week, which, however, coincided with the f/2.6 aperture of the module on the Galaxy S II, so things could have changed since December when that prototype was made.

The tipsters indeed hint that this service manual is a very early version, so hopefully the camera will be the 12MP shooter that Amazon Germany and AnTuTu ranking charts are listing. The quad-core Exynos 4412 that will be in the Galaxy S3 has a proprietary Image Signal Processor, as illustrated on Samsung's Exynos blog, so we keep our hopes high on that front.
