Leaked Galaxy S3 Manual shows design, specs




Itching to find out what the Samsung Galaxy S3 will look like and what it’ll pack under the hood? Here’s something that will raise your eyebrows – a reportedly leaked copy of the official service manual of the Galaxy S3 showing off its design and specifications. Check out the images below.

The design in the image shows a more curved Galaxy S3 compared to the S2. Probably to make it friendlier to the hands since it’s not going to be your typical 3-incher. Past rumors and speculations mentioned that the S3 might sport a 4.6 or 4.7 inch display but the leaked manual claims that the device will have a wider 4.8 inch display. Also listed under the specs is the 1.5GHz Quad Core CPU. Now this might cause some confusion since Samsung has just announced their Exynos 4 Quad processor which runs at 1.4GHz.

We all love to hit on rumors, especially if it mentions better design and specs. But it’s more like an “aim for the moon, if you miss, you’ll land among the stars” kind of thing. Good thing YugaTech will be in London to cover the launching of the new Galaxy smartphone so we can call dibs on the official specs. So for now, take this with a grain of salt and a sip of tequila.

    haha, pa style na din sila sa leakage parang iphone sa press release, free promotion and hype.

  9. Jam says:

    I’m happy to hear sa advancements ng bagong S3 but I’m kind of disappointed sa 8MP. I mean yung Sony Xperia S has already hyped to 12MP and yet they’re stuck from 8MP. But no doubt this will be a big hit on the market.

  10. iTechGadgets says:

    Nothing new for that leaked phone. Design lang naman nagbago jan. I hope magkaroon naman sila ng kakaiba na phone.

    • madaaa says:

      parang ganito ang typical comment ng mga diehard apple fan boys ah haha.madaming bago jan, way better than the iphone4 to 4s bump. another hit monster phone from sammy ftw! ;)

    • iTechGadgets says:

      Lahat ng features ng Samsung phones meron na sa ibang phones. Hindi mo naman kailangan maging iphone diehard para ma-notice mo yun.

  11. “So for now, take this with a grain of salt and a sip of tequila.”

    – exactly :D
    quadcore chip and 1080p? Looks like another powerful phone from Samsung :D

  12. barurot says:

    Baka laggy pa rin yan kahit quad core na.

  13. juzam says:

    Kailan naman kaya magkakaroon ng 41 megapixel camera ang Samsung? Napaka mediocre ng specs nila para sa isang flagship phone and sa presyo na hinihingi.

    • ZAYNE says:

      You want a 41 mp phone get a nokia… You cant just slap a camera onto a device you need to unify both camera and body of the phone. Unlike nokia their camera is 41 mp but the reason is their to give you a better digital zoom without the use of an optical zoom nokia actually wants you to only use just 5-10 mp of the phone and thats just about it

    • BoyYabang says:

      Ang bobo mo naman official specs na ba yang nakita mo? Tsaka ka magreklamo pag alam mo na yung official specs.

  14. Sam says:

    Nothing new in this samsung device, just another android piece of xxxx,
    android pa rin yan kahit anong specs yan, hintayin ko na lang yung iphone 5/air with goodness of Brandnew ios, btw, proud kaming mga apple fans..

      Mas magaling na ngayon ang South Koreans kaysa Americans pagdating sa Technology. Ni hindi nga marunong gumawa ang Apple ng sarili nilang processor kaya nakadepende sila sa Samsung.

    • Nigel says:

      iOS is not an actual OS, search for it. While Android is a real OS. It’s like comparing an app launcher to an entire OS that runs (any) app launcher. my 2 cents.

    • ZAYNE says:

      To the following 2 stupids above apple does not make their processors…true but they design their own processors and they dont only just rely on samsung but others as well next… The second guy iOS is an OS Just like an android just because iOS has a more friendly, easier and smoother interface than android does not give you the EFFFINNN!!! Right to not call it an OPERATING SYSTEM i suggest you do more research because what you searched may be wrong to the comment above dont be mayabang just because you have an iPhone i have both android and ios devices thats another reason why we ios users are called social climbers

    • ged says:

      mas ok ang samsung! alam nyo kung bakit dahil ang supplier ng apple sa lcd screen ng kanilang idevices ay ang samsung.

    • ZAYNe says:

      Its not just samsung who’s supplying the parts but sharp as well is suplying screens for its idevices

    • madaaa says:

      iTards will always be iTards hehe. di kasi kelangang maging henyo para makita kung gano ka-limited ang kayang gawin ng iOS kumpara sa android.

    • ZAYNE says:

      @madaaa: ok then tell me this why has why do android devices more security holes than iOS devices. Will you RISK your information for a phone with many security risks and unknown developers who might have spyware or virus on your apps…or… Will you have ios which apple screens for spyware and other security threats… Yes you will be limited on ios devices but at least apps are more unified and designed to work on all devices not like android some apps need a specific hardware or phone and if its not designed for it the app just gets unstable… And apple has a smoother interface i have both tablets and phones of both ios and android so you can say i havent tried this without any experienced CAUSE I HAVE

    • wicked says:

      @zayne
      Security issue? magising tayo sa katotohanan, walang “Secured” sa Internet, mapa IOS man yan o Android lahat yan pede ihack. lahat yan gawa sa “Code”, at lahat ng code may loop hole. kung concern ka sa security o privacy, wag ka mag internet, yan ang katotohanan.

    • ZAYNE says:

      @Wicked: I didnt say that ios is a fully secure device what i meant that giving the apps and its developers apple filters the bad apps with malware written on it against android just passing the app without checking it

    • HerpDerp says:

      Ang Android kasi mas ok para sa mga advanced user. Hindi sya pang tanga. Open source kasi ang android kaya kung marunong ka kaya mong imodify almost kahit ano na andun at kung kaya mong gawin yun, ibig sabihin kaya mo ding mag defende or at least mag linis nang mga malwares na makukuha.

    • madaaa says:

      @zayne: sakit ka ata sa ulong kausap haha binasa ko lahat ng usapan ngayon lang. tama na english hehe. at tama na rin pataasan ng ihi sa kung sino mas maraming alam ;) hintayin na lang natin ang GSIII na lalabas na in a bit…and then iSheeps like YOU – will remain iSheeps pa rin sigurado. ;) peace bro. :P

      This is the new age of smartphones 3.5-5 inches is the new age something like a size of a palmpilot is gone

    • wicked says:

      Mas masarap manood fafs sa mas malakeng screen kung hindi mo pede dalhin ang 50″ LED TV mo hehe.

      Dagdagan mo pa na kaya ng Android mag play directly ng MKV files, sulit na sulit ang HD movies mo on the go.

      Mas masarap din mag browse sa screen na mas malake. Sana nga gawin nilang kahit 5 inches to, pero mukhang malabo :p

  17. wicked says:

    Kung sinusundan nyo ang news ng Galaxy S3, hindi sure yang image na yan kung totoo o fake.

    One thing for sure, naka quadcore and ICS ang Galaxy S3, sa ibang specs e mag antay na lang tayo sa final announcement ng Samsung sa May3

    Sa nag sasabe na baka laggy ang phone, laggy meaning mo ba e pinatakbo mo halos lahat ng apps mo sa background ng phone o laggy na walang tumatakbo na apps sa background?

    Ang masasabe ko lang e Android 4.0 ang pinaka optimize na version ng android currently, dagdagan mo pa ng quad core sure smooth to(Wag ka lang mag abnormal testing na halos patakbuhin mo lahat ng apps mo ng sabay sabay sa kaya ng processor at memory ng phone). Kahit IOS magLalag, mahirap lang itest kasi hindi naman totoong multitasking OS ang IOS, unlike android Multi tasking talaga.

    Pede nyo din itest ang HTC one x, meron na sa pinas nyan, kung smooth na para sa inyo yun e tegra 3 lang ang processor nun. Ang galaxy S3 e Exynos at may mga news na mas malakas ang Exynos sa Tegra 3 :)

    • ZAYNE says:

      Actually i resent that ios has no true multi tasking…what do you call…calling while using the internet…. But heres the thing apple has apps that do multi tasking the only problem is that some developers have not used the multitasking feature on ios and android it does its own multitasking but what it does it reserves the ram for that app thus the ram of android and its battery taking dead weight but with apple they have done is multitask without reserving the ram thus less consumption of power, battery and ram of the devices though android has implemented the use of 4 cores….. Their are no apps to support it what this device is trying to sell is its hardware capability not software so their is no unity unlike apple ” the best device creates its own hardware and software” and thus unifying all apps to any ios device they equalize their device sometimes putting too much is not a good thing like right now what sammy is doing creating a device which no app supports all 4 cores

    • wicked says:

      @zayne actually fafs madameng explanation online regarding sa sinasabe ko.. need mo lang mag google o pede mo din hindi tanggapin ang fact na hindi true multi tasking ang IOS.

      Ang pinag uusapan dito is like “Windows OS” multitasking, hindi yung multitasking na kahit SYMBIAN OS e kayang gawin…

      eto copy paste ko nalang isa sa ibig kong sabihin…

      [iOS: It’s more complicated than it looks]

      Ever since iOS 4, Apple’s platform has had a limited form of multitasking accessed with a double tap of the home button. The multitasking bar is displayed at the bottom of the screen, and allows you to flip between apps. A long-press on an icon lets the user remove an app from the multitasking bar. You might think this is closing a background app that is easting up resources, but that’snot the case.

      iOS 5 MultitaskingApple only intended the multitasking bar to be a list of recent apps, not apps that are running in the background. It’s not a task manager, no matter how much it looks like one. In fact, almost nothing in the multitasking bar is truly “multitasking.” Apple’s tightly controlled platform instructs most apps to stop running code when the home button is pressed.

      There are five states of app activity on iOS, with the least interesting being Not Running, and Inactive. Not Running simply means the app is closed or hasn’t been launched. Inactive is a running app that isn’t running code, for example if the device is asleep. Active is the state of an app when it is in the foreground being used.

      When an iOS user hits the home button, an Active app moves to Background. A Background app is not on the screen, but is still executing code. Most Background apps immediately switch to Suspended mode. A Suspended app is cached in memory, but uses no processor cycles, and thus is running no code on the device. If the device needs more memory for a game or other large app, Suspended apps will be cleared from RAM.

      Apps are only allowed to remain Background tasks and run code for longer than a few seconds in specific circumstances. A series of tightly controlled APIs allow indefinite backgrounding for things like VoIP, location tracking, and audio playback. None of this has any bearing on what is in the multitasking bar. A well-written app should suspend itself when it’s done running code, and users shouldn’t really have to monitor such things on iOS.

      [Android: Multitask like a boss]

      Google made some fairly significant changes to the way multitasking is accessed on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In the new recent apps list, you can swipe apps away like cards to remove them from the list. Just like in the case of iOS, this tends to give users the feeling that they are managing tasks; freeing up memory even. However, that is just as wrong here as it is on Apple’s platform.

      The recent apps list is just that, a list of recent apps with thumbnails. There is no guarantee that the apps are actually running any code just because they are in the list. When a user hits the home button, an app does not immediately enter some thing akin to Suspended mode on iOS. The process associated with an Android app remains in the background and is allowed to do any work it needs to. Apps on Android might use multiple processes, and multiple apps can share a single process.

      When users want to return to an app they have left, the process is restored as a foreground app almost instantly. In a perfect world, an Android device would never run out of memory, and all these processes could live in RAM forever. This being the real world, your device will probably run short of RAM at some point. When that happens, it’s much the same as iOS. The system kills the process and the kernel reclaims the resources. The next time a user opens that app, it has to completely reloaded. This app could still be in the recent apps list, which has no bearing on whether or not its process is still running in the background.

      Android MultitaskingIn more recent iterations of Android, the platform has gotten much smarter about managing tasks for you. There is simply no reason to use a task manager to keep the system running smoothly. In fact, this could interfere with Android’s automatic process monitoring. Developers have two ways to explicitly run code in the background and prevent it from being stopped unexpectedly. A manual task manager would interfere.

      The ways Android apps avoid being killed in the background has a parallel on iOS with the limited Background APIs. The BroadcastReceivers component lets apps wake up for a short time to run some task or another, and then shunts it back to a background state. This is useful for location check-ins or file syncing.

      The other way to forcibly maintain an app in the background is the Service component. An app that is running as a Service can run indefinitely and should almost never be killed by the system. This is what makes Android multitasking unique. Regular processes will be ended before a service, and a developer can further indicate a Service’s importance by running it as “foreground,” but this requires a notification icon to be persistently visible in the notification bar. You will see this behavior with automation apps like Locale as well as with music playback.
      It’s about control, and you don’t have much

      Be it iOS or Android, the operating system does most of the task management for you. iOS never really allowed users to monkey around with running tasks, and even now it forces developers to very clearly declare why an app needs to exist as a non-Suspended Background process for more than a few seconds. Suspended processes are killed as needed, and the recent apps bar has nothing to do with that.

      Android also closes down processes that are no longer needed, but it gives developers a few more ways to run behind the scenes. The process associated with an app is free to run whatever code it needs in the background, but if memory is constrained, it could be ended at any time. By running a BroadcastReceiver or Service, apps can be assured of a little more functionality, though. Even in Android 4.0 with its slick recent apps interface, removing an app won’t force-kill the underlying process. That’s up to the system.

      The bottom line is this: don’t worry about it. The apps running in the background, be they Suspended iOS apps or Android Services, will be handled by the system in the most efficient way. Both platforms know to kill apps that are no longer needed, and removing things from your recent apps list on either platform isn’t going to help.

      While i agree that iOS devices are made from samsung parts i disagree that its mostly made from samsung parts… Remember the processor may come from samsung but the display may come from not only samsung but from sharp as well and the memory may have come from toshiba antennas come from foxconn and a lot more. So dont say that ios comes mostly from samsung

      i agree but apple failed in ios5. been an ios user for 4 yrs at ngayon lang ako nbuwisit ng ganito. it’s crazy to charge your batt 5x / day. mas ok pa ios4 in terms of batt life. i guess gawa na rin ng new chip at retina atbp. and i hope they can still improve it. i upgraded my units to 5.1 pero 8-10% difference lang that’s why may android parin ako by way of sony xperia s for the meantime at iri-root ko pa sooner.

    Actually may IOS din ako, ang ayaw ko lang talaga sa apple ay napaka simple, may blocks of apps then yun na yun, pepresyuhan nila ng 40k+ each “new” version daw na ilalabas nila.

    May 2008 model ako ng IOS, ano ba nagbago hanggang ngayon sa UI? halos wala, nagkaron lang ng not true multitasking at Siri. Mga games usually lang nakikinabang sa hardware

    Baket hindi naglabas ng quadcore processor ang Ipad3 na bago? kasi no need, sa sobrang simple ng UI dual core ok na ok na. Unlike sa android, sobrang dame ng pede mo i customize, widgets ang mabigat kaya kailangan ng mas malakas na processor.

    Wala namang masama kung gusto ng isang tao ang ka simplehan ng IOS, ang hindi lang tama ay ipilit mo sa Android users yung IOS.

    Kung noob ka ok na ok ang IOS
    Kung geek ka, e mas ok na ok sayo ang Android

    It’s a matter of choice. peace out \m/

      well said … ang main factor lang ng apple is market value at status symbol. napansin ko sa mga natanungan ko ng naka iphone eh halos 85% sa kanila ay astig daw pag naka iphone. as for my own end eh may iphone4s nga ako pero kebet ko naman sa pag-flaunt. i still want to get an android phone as my alternate option lalo na’t ok na rin kahit di ko na i-root.

      I agree on your comment No need to force people to move to either sides or even both sides and The Hardware specs i have both android and iOS on tablets and phones. BTW Noob or geek IOS is great (Hacking…) Apple will never change its UI…why??? because everyone knows how to use it. Android on the other hand is great at RAW with no custom android that or custom android this. The problem with android is Alot of companies that make android devices want to make android look like their own thus when a person tries to switch from Sony Tablet P/S to a samsung/ asus/ lenovo or toshiba its has its own custom BLOAT User interface and the person gets confused i rather have the clean Android User interface but i like both android and IOS so both for me is great its just me that i tend to move to IOS because people seem to be harsh at apple and try to defend it with true facts while android users say Apple Stereotypes like iDIots (Thats right im talking to you @procopio Jose) we are not Idiots we bought it because we like a simple interface or think why we want it (their are a lot of variables and its not excusing the other android users…we all have our reasons so why dont we just respect it) RESPECT!!!! TO ALL BE HUMBLE TO ALL IOS and Android USERS
