Samsung Galaxy Premier Specs Outed

Details on the yet-to-be-announced Samsung Galaxy Premier (seen on the left in the above image alongside the Galaxy S3) smartphone have been outed.

Following the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, news pertaining to the existence of the 'Premier' handset was reportedly confirmed. More details have now emerged, with the Samsung Galaxy Premier, otherwise known as the GT-i9268, said to be running on a dual-core system-on-chip clocked at 1.5GHz and on the Cortex-A9. While the SGX543MP4 is utilized by Apple's A5X SoC in order to power the new iPad, the smartphone appears to boast the more powerful PowerVR SGX544.

No word on pricing or release just yet but we'll keep you posted.

The Samsung Galaxy Premier is also said to feature a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display, an 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, as well as a measurement of 133.97 x 68.1 x 8.8mm.

Due to its inability to work on LTE networks running in the US, the Galaxy Premier is expected to release exclusively in European regions by the end of the year.

    Dual-core 1.5GHz A9? That's not really impressive IMO.

    otacon72S3 came out how long ago? S4 is coming out in Feb... S3 mini is on the way and now the S3 Premier? You people complain Apple milks their customers... Apple has nothing on Android smartphones. New versions are coming out every 3-6 months..
    Theres a massive differences between your comment and the real thing.

    S3 came out almost 5 months ago, by the time S4 comes out it will be like 9-12 months old.

    S3 Mini isn't all new Cellphone it's simply an smaller phone boosting the same hardware as the original one, theres people who doesn't like big screens.

    S4 will probably come out between May and june of next year.

    Apple doesn't make "new" cellphones they just upgrade the hardware and tweak the thing a little bit...now that's milking because with an android phone if you wish, you don have to rely on official updates you can go to XDA or any site like that and download a custom room.

    People who has an Android phone actually use it 1-2 years and then change it. with Apple products is much more a fashion gadget. yes people use it all day but anyone with a smart device use it more than be sitting on a pc a while just to be in social networks.

    Apple has the amount of hate it has because theyre very overhyped and nothing good can came out of somenthig like that, look all those patent class lawsuits they exist becasue Apple products are so overhyped because of how does they closed garden of fantasies work so Apple thinks they can get away with theyre products and bully other manofacturers, now thats somenthing to be concerned about.

    What? That's nothing compared to Krait and A15 at 1.5GHz and we've had them both for more than long enough to make more extensive use of them. Heck, Apple's A6 runs at a little over 1GHz and it significantly beats a dual-core 1.5GHz A9. A dual-core 1.5GHz A9 would have been impressive a year ago or a little less than a year ago, but it's not so great these days. The graphics seems to be incredible if what the article states is true, but the CPU, although good, is not great.

    Apple also controls the hardware thus controls the compilers and thus... controls the byte code. I just am asking for perspective and really, what are you doing on your phone that it matters?

    What's your point? None of that is relevant. I said that a 1.5GHz dual-core A9 SoC is not very impressive in CPU performance because it isn't in the face of more modern chips. Furthermore, it's not about what you do on your current phone, it's about what you could do if it was better. Apps can only get better if there's enough performance for improvements.

    Each for a different market.

    S3 Mini is for those who want a Galaxy, but don't like the big screen. And this is for the European market and is for those who want a phone in between the nexus and S3.

    Fail more Apple Cultist.

    etichireally blazorthon?Yes, really, someone still thinks the GHz arms race from the P4-era is still going on based on the first comment, nice attempt at a save in the retort however but doesn't do anything but look like an ignorant comment first out of the gate. Maybe if the first comment was a technical one and not some pithy soundbite it would have come across better. Note from teacher, must try harder.

    I'm not whining and it's not impresssive to keep using older SoCs. Furthermore, frequency isn't the problem, performance is. Frequency and performance aren't even remotely the same thing.

    What in my post says that I think that clock frequency = performance, what in my comment implies that I think that 1.5GHz is the issue, and what about my comment is ignorant?
