Some conceptual renderings of a device have been posted on Concept Phones which claim the device is the next generation of Samsung Galaxy S smartphone – the Samsung Galaxy S3. The device is being called the Samsung GT-I9500 Universal and claimed to be dual-booting Android and Bada OS right out of the box.
It’s also said that it’ll pack a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display with 1280×720 pixels, a 12MP rear-facing camera with both LED flash and Xenon flash, a front-facing 2MP camera and internal memory of 32GB or 64GB with expandability via microSD card slot.
It’ll come in a body measuring 9mm in thickness. Other goodies are a stylus like what the Galaxy Note has, 4G LTE connectivity and a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 1.5GHz processor that works with TouchWiz 5.0. All the said features seem to be too far from realistic especially the dual-boot of Android and Bada OS shouldn’t be anything that many want. The renderings also seem weird showing a bezel that allows for the display to have some overlap around the edges. Finally, Concept Phones updated their post saying it’s not real as follows:
“Samsung Russia just contacted us and said this is not a real phone. Here’s what they said: “The mock-ups, published in the article on Concept-Phones.com, were posted in the “Imagined Phones” section of “Samsung Phones Owners’ Club” group on VKontakte.ru. This section contains unofficial artworks and designs, created by group members, and are products of pure imagination, sometime even a joke”.” – Concept Phones
