The new Samsung Galaxy Premier (GT-i9260) has been spotted a few times as of late, but only in a few leaked benchmarks, and official press photos. Today however, Samsung’s new mid-range device has cleared the Taiwan NCC, their FCC equivalent, and along with it we’re getting multiple pictures of the actual hardware. Check out this 4.65-inch Galaxy smartphone below.
For those that aren’t familiar, the Galaxy Premier appears to be a perfect blend between the high end Samsung Galaxy S III, and the recently announced (and underwhelming) Galaxy S III Mini. The Galaxy Premier offers a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED 1280x720p HD display, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is included, and is apparently running on a 1.5 GHz Texas Intruments dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM. It has impressive specs, but isn’t quite top tier with today’s standards.
We’ve heard reports that the display could indeed be WVGA, but these latest reports seemingly confirm an HD display. The Premier will also rock an 8 megapixel camera, and 1.3 front shooter as well. So far we’ve only seen a few leaks of the new device, but today it has cleared the FCC in Taiwan called the NCC — confirming it is indeed coming soon.
Seeing the device clear the NCC confirms that is is coming soon, but from what we’re seeing and hearing this might only launch internationally and across Europe. The Samsung Galaxy Premier sounds like a perfectly blended device for the mid-range and budget friendly crowd. Hopefully we hear more from Samsung soon.
