Pictures have surfaced on the Internet this past weekend of a smartphone that could possibly be the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Initially these images were believed to be leaked screenshots of the Samsung Galaxy S3 making its debut well ahead of its expected Mobil World Congress launch. However, new reports have come out stating that the supposedly leaked images of the new Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone are just a render created by a Russian concept phone site.

Even with the possible let down of these images not being an official leak by Samsung, fans can still be excited about some of the rumored specifications for the device.
A 4Chan reader posted the specs for the Samsung Galaxy S3 that were received from a reliable source who hit the nail on the head with all of his predictions for the Galaxy Nexus.
