Sprint's Version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Surfaces (PHOTO)

A photo of what is said to be Sprint's version of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 has surfaced.

The device is said to be Sprint's Galaxy S3 version SPH-L300 and will be launching on the network very soon. It is also expected to feature a MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 processor.

"As seen on the photo above, the device looks very similar to the Galaxy S3, the buttons at the bottom of the device appear to be etched into the frame," said YouMobile.org regarding the photo of the device.

"The top bezel of the device seems extremely huge, and excessive," continued the site. "As well, we can see on the battery below the Samsung logo that "Near Field Communications" is listed confirming that the device will support NFC capabilities."

YouMobile also listed the physical dimensions of the device in the picture.

It is 12.19cm x 6.38cm x 1.204cm (HxWxD). It features a quad-core Qualcomm chipset, 4GB ROM, 1GB of Ram, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with 800x480 resolution, a 5-megapixel camera, 4G LTE and Android 4.0.4.

These specifications are significantly different from the Samsung Galaxy S3 that was launched by the Korean electronics giant last week in London, England.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S3 at a press event and also spoke about some of the specifications on the smartphone.

The Galaxy S3 has a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display. It will have a higher resolution that the device that is in the picture.

It also features an 8-megapixel camera in the back and a 1.9-megapixel camera in the front. The device in the picture has a 5-megapixel camera. It does not make sense for Sprint to release an inferior smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 will be released at the end of May in Europe and is expected to hit the states this summer.
