@evleaks, a Twitter account, previously leaked photos and specs of the GT-I9260, which is a device created by Samsung and is known to be the Galaxy Premier. It looks like @evleaks is at it again, leaking another photo of the rumoured smartphone. The new photo shows an anime-like image of a girl on the phone’s touchscreen.
According to the previous leak, the Galaxy Premier sports a 4.65-inch display, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, either 8 or 16GB of internal storage, support for a microSD card (as much 32GB), Bluetooth 4.0, and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
Samsung has recently released the Galaxy S3 mini, which looks just like the Galaxy S3. However, it doesn’t sport impressive specs just like the Korean tech giant’s flagship. The Premier sports decent specs, but does not look like the S3. It resembles the Galaxy Nexus, which is Google’s current Nexus smartphone.
Samsung hasn’t announced anything official about the Galaxy Premier, but according to reports, it will be launched in Europe sometime in December. The rumour goes on by saying that it will set you back €400 (roughly £321).
If the reported price tag of the Galaxy Premier is true, the device is likely to be a budget high-end handset or a mid-range device sporting better hardware from the Korean firm.
With a price tag of around £321, would it be a good idea to get your hands on the Galaxy Premier when you can get your hands on the Galaxy S3 for £409. According to reports, the Premier runs the latest version of Android (Jelly Bean) right off the bat. The Galaxy S3, on the other hand, runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) when shipped. The Jelly Bean update is available for SIM-free versions or locked handsets with Vodafone, Three, or O2. Although the Jelly Bean is available for the S3, it will take a long time update since the file is huge. So if you don’t want to be troubled with updating to the latest version of Android, get your hands on the Galaxy Premier. Well, until Key Lime Pie rolls out at least.
