AnTuTu, the well-known benchmark app for Android, seems to have completely exposed the specs of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3. The app places Samsung's next-generation smartphone higher than the Transformer Prime (Asus tablet), which was previously at the top of the list.

It has already been confirmed that the next Galaxy flagship phone from Samsung will rock a quad-core Exynos 4 Quad processor clocking at 1.4GHz. Or, at least, the global version will. There were various rumors and speculations about other specs, but the AnTuTu benchmark seems to cover all the necessary details (well, except for design).

AnTuTu Leaked Specs

Samsung has already confirmed that its next Galaxy flagship phone will have an Exynos 4 Quad chip, clocking at 1.4GHz. According to AnTuTu, other specs include a 4.7-inch display with a 720 x 1280 pixels resolution, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera. When it comes to RAM, however, rumors seem to have been misleading. According to the database, the Samsung Galaxy S3 will not have 2GB of RAM as rumored, but only 1GB.

The new Galaxy phone will also feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, likely with Samsung's own TouchWiz user interface on top of it. On the other hand, AnTuTu makes no mention of the actual aspect of the phone.

Quad-Core or Dual-Core?

It is also worth mentioning that while Samsung confirmed a quad-core Exynos 4 Quad processor, a recent report from Korea Times says this is only true for the global version. The U.S. version will reportedly settle for a dual-core processor. "Samsung plans to release its Galaxy S III smartphone according to different specifications and different markets," The Korea Times cited one Samsung executive, who asked to remain unidentified. "For European consumers, it will use 3G and the company's own quad-core mobile APs, while its own solution that combines LTE, 3G and quad-core mobile APs will be used for the Korea version. But only in the United States will Samsung use Qualcomm chips."

The much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S3 will launch on May 3 in London, at Earls Court. Until the official release on May 3, all rumored specs, including the AnTuTu benchmark, should be taken with a grain of salt.
