Last week, we showed you some leaked images of the Galaxy Premier along with its alleged specs. Apparently, the rumors were real as Samsung has just recently announced the slightly smaller version of the Galaxy S3.
The rumor mongers were dead on as far as the specs of this phone is concerned. Besides the camera and the processor, the Galaxy Premier’s configuration bears striking resemblance to that of the Galaxy Nexus i9250’s. Heck, even the model number of both devices is almost similar to each other. It’s like a slightly updated GNex with an S3 body and TouchWiz UI.
