Samsung Galaxy S III leaked slides ( appearance in alleged Samsung slide )

Nearly all of the Galaxy S II variants are out the door in the U.S. with only T-Mobile yet to launch. Naturally that means its time for details about the Samsung Galaxy S III to start bubbling up to the surface.
Today’s info comes from a somewhat dubious slide that was sent to Phandroid and purportedly came from an internal presentation that Samsung gave to carrier and retail partners.

So with a healthy dose of salt sprinkled on it lets take a look at what the Galaxy S III might have to offer us.
The processor will remain dual-core and stick with the same Samsung Exynos family that is powering most of the Galaxy S IIs, but will be bumped up to the recently announced Exynos 4212 which will run at 1.8GHz. RAM will see an even more startling boost, doubling to a full 2GB.
The rear facing camera will be notched up to 12MP, but perhaps more importantly will feature a backside illuminated CMOS sensor which can greatly increase image quality particularly in low light situations.
Last, but definitely not least we have a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display. That’s right, the same amazing display we keep hearing about for the Nexus Prime.
The anonymous tipster also had a few details that didn’t appear on the slide. The phone will feature NFC and LTE, not a big surprise there. It won’t be using the curved screen that is found on the Nexus S and soon the Nexus Prime. While it will run Ice Cream Sandwich at launch it is going to keep the four physical buttons. Finally this new version of the Galaxy S will break from the current aesthetic of the line in order to avoid future legal troubles with Cupertino.
Again I’ll stress that we have no way of knowing if the slide is accurate and while misspellings and spec errors (Exynos in the Galaxy S?) do happen in these things it doesn’t exactly help the cause. I will at least say that the specs offered sound very much in line with what I would expect from the next Galaxy S device whether the slide is real or not.
