Samsung Galaxy Premier Device Outed

By - Source: GottaBeMobile | B 19 comments

Specifications leak follows a day after Galaxy S3 Mini was announced.

Following the announcement of the Galaxy S3 Mini, Samsung is seemingly working on the 'Galaxy Premier', which will be a step up from a Galaxy Nexus, but below the specifications of the Galaxy S3.

According to purported leaked specs, the Galaxy Premier (the device seen on the left in the image above next to the Galaxy S3) will apparently feature Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. However, it won't be powered by the quad-core Exynos chip found inside the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II, but instead contain a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. As for the Premier's screen, the unannounced smartphone will share the same size and resolution stemming from the older Galaxy Nexus device: a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display.

The Galaxy Premier is said to use an 8-megapixel camera found in the Galaxy S3, as well as feature Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS, and DLNA (sharing media over home networks). Also included is a front-facing camera, either 16 or 32 GB of internal storage and a micro SD card slot.

The handset is reportedly targeted just for Europe territories, with a launch in Germany by the end of the year rumored, as well as an estimated price of €480. Due to its inability to work on LTE networks with its HSDPA (HSPA) radio and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA components, the Galaxy Premier is unlikely to see a launch in the United States.

    As long as you people at Toms use a .com without a second level domain you really should not refer to the quad core in the GS3 since .com is for AMERICAN websites and we do NOT get a quad core in the GS3.

    Save the quad core talk for .com.uk, .com.jp etc., etc.

    In other words, learn the interwebs. kthx.

    as long as its about electronic tech advancements and new toys anywhere around the world, plz bring more news to the .com domain. even if i dont buy the quad core phone here in usa, I still find the news interesting

    also learn the interwebs dude. its ".co.uk" and ".co.jp" :p

    I thought Apple relied on brand dilution and consumer confusion to make everyone think the Galaxy series are Apple Copycats? :p

    learn the english, dude. if you want to be possessive, it's just "its," but if you want to be a contraction (it is), it's "it-apostrophe-s," scallywag. you should probably capitalize sentences and proper nouns, too. oh, wait...

    Reading these comments, it occurred to me I'm in the wrong place, this is obviously a tween forum, sorry for the inconvenience. But, as young as you are, learn this, think for yourself, do your research and buy what you like, not what other people like. That being said, Samsung's phones are light years ahead of anything from Apple, especially when compared with price in mind. I wouldn't trade my S3 for a iPhone 10, but I'm no Samsung fanboy, if HTC or Google come out with a better looking and functioning phone, there I go, but they will have Samsung components inside anyway, so who knows.

    There's nothing wrong with the iPhone besides that the 5's alumiinum is a bit soft and scratch-prone. Everyone doesn't want Android (though I'm still enjoying it). Still lacks a little polish but its good stuff. The SGS3 does indeed rock but this Galaxy Premier thing looks a lot like the US SGS3 to me.

    Hardly dilution, Android handsets outsell Apple by 4 to 1 across the board, that is because a phone is a very personal thing and there is no such thing as "one size fits all"
    ...
    Samsung makes a large range of phones of varying sizes and it is doing very well thanks very much, sales are almost equal and that doesn't include dumbphones of which they still sell boatloads as well
    ...
    As far as branding goes they are as big as each other, just not as much hype for Samsung, they have to work for their sales - Android is clearly a more favoured OS and the hardware vendor of choice is Samsung, so I don't think you can deride Samsung on any level and not look ridiculous
