The Samsung GT-i9260 that we first heard about in August won’t be the next Galaxy Nexus. At least that’s what we can infer from today’s leak, which brings us all the important details about this device.
First of all, it will be called Samsung Galaxy Premier. That’s different from its codename (Superior), but not entirely different come to think of it.
The Galaxy Premier will be a top of the line smartphone that will sit in between the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy S III Mini (that should be announced today) in Samsung’s portfolio. Its specs are in between those two devices, as is its screen size.

Like the Galaxy Nexus, the Galaxy Premier will have a 4.65-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED touchscreen. Unlike the Galaxy Nexus though, it won’t have software rendered Android buttons, instead Samsung has opted to keep its trademark arrangement of two capacitive buttons and one actual button underneath the screen.
The Galaxy Premier will have a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP front-facing camera, 8 or 16 GB of built-in storage expandable via microSD slot, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA, 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS, and DLNA. It will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
It’s expected to launch in Germany before the end of the year, so we may see it in other European countries in 2012 as well. The estimated price is €480, which is not exactly cheap despite its good specs.
