Leaked service manual reveals Galaxy S3 sketch and final specs?
With Samsung’s Unpacked event still a week away, there is plenty of time to get in a few more Galaxy S3 leaks. The latest is a scan of a page purported to be ripped from the upcoming phone’s service manual. Aside from a sketch of the handset we see what could be the final list of specs, though a few of the bullet points conflict with official and rumored information alike.
The scan references a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display while rumors have suggested we might see something closer in size to the Galaxy Nexus at 4.6 or 4.7 inches. A quad-core CPU clocked at 1.5GHz goes directly against Samsung’s announcement of a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos chip to feature in the next Galaxy phone. It’s always possible that the manual was put together based on rough information and that we are looking at an outdated edition here. It’s also possible that we are looking at a clever fake.
The sketch if the device itself doesn’t come off as inspired, but it’s hard to make a judgement based on a 2D black-and-white line drawing. If anything, the device definitely looks like a handset from Samsung’s Galaxy lineup. May 3rd can’t get here soon enough.
