Following the controversy surrounding a potentially leaked image of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy SIII, many were left (still) wondering just what Sammy's flagship would actually look like. Thickening the plot significantly, a Redditor has stepped up and posted what is claimed to be a real photo of the actual Galaxy SIII, provided by an employee of Samsung.

Just under an hour ago, the Redditor (using a throwaway or one-off account), posted the photo, claiming that the Samsung employee provided not only a photo, but some juicy details as well.

Today's suspected Galaxy SIII leak caused quite a stir in the Android community, of course sparking concerns over validity, likelihood that Samsung would choose such a form factor for the upcoming flagship, and just when we may see the real thing up close. A great summary of the leak on Reddit, and the subsequent comment thread got me thinking, though: just how likely is it that the leak is real?

Samsung has been holding on somewhat tightly to any details of its highly anticipated upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S III. We've heard a few ridiculous rumors here and there over the past several weeks, but today's "leak" looks to be the most believable thus far - either that, or a masterfully created hoax.

As pointed out in this thread on Reddit, there are many aspects of this leak worth pointing out, beginning with the biggest hints of all: the date in the calendar and location in the weather widget.

Ice Cream Sandwich. It's more than a buzzword in the Android community right now - it's what most users are waiting for in one way or another. Some are waiting on the update to roll out to their device, while others are still waiting to find out if their device will even get the update. For HTC Rezound users, however, the wait ends today - as long as they're willing to flash a leaked firmware, that is.

According to a new document acquired by Droid Life, the DROID Fighter and LG Cayman (which, according to DL, is the LG Lucid 4G) are slated for official releases starting later this month. The LG Cayman is poised to debut March 29th, while the DROID Fighter will be appearing April 12th. Interestingly, the release dates shown match exactly with the workshop dates we reported a couple of weeks ago.

In addition to the LG Cayman and DROID Fighter, the document lists a couple of new devices – the HTC Fireball (which Droid Life's sources are calling the Incredible 4G), and the Samsung Plato, which Droid Life last saw way back in August, listed for a January release.

Acer tablet owners across the country were elated (well, most of them were, anyway) when Acer announced that Ice Cream Sandwich will be coming to the A100 and A500 in April. Thanks to a new leak that made its way to XDA, though, the wait for April just got a lot shorter. Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs for both devices landed in their respective forum on XDA earlier today, bringing a taste of Android 4.0 to the duo.

The folks over at Droid-life have unearthed an internal Verizon document pointing to some device workshops for two as-of-yet unknown devices. The LG Cayman (like the islands, but way smaller), and the DROID Fighter. No word yet on which manufacturer is producing the latter.

We're not sure whether the "device workshops" are public or employee training. We also don't know if they take place before or after the release of the devices.

A mysterious post showed up on the Droid RAZR forums yesterday containing a whole slew of screenshots of the Droid RAZR running Ice Cream Sandwich. The original poster left no information about the build, nor did s/he reply to the gaggle of questions that followed the leak. Known only as dragon974, the poster seemingly vanished after dropping the goods.

While this leak gives us a good look at what ICS on the Droid RAZR should look like, there have been some questions concerning its validity.

At the end of January, a leaked Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 build IMM26 for the Sprint Nexus S 4G ended up online, indicating that a possible official release wasn't too far off. We heard this leak caused quite a bit of commotion within the companies involved, which may have had something to do with the XDA post getting wiped clean shortly after (although the poster did state he would only keep it going for a few days).

Nowadays, it's not often that we come across some blurrycam shots of a device and don't know what it is, but that's exactly the case here. Luckily, the shots do reveal some information, and there a few other things we can surmise from there.

Assuming they make it into the final product (this is, after all, a prototype), here's what we're looking at for organs:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP camera on the back, VGA front-facing camera
  • WiFi (presumably up to 802.11n) and Bluetooth
  • Android 4.0.1 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • HTC's Sense 4.0
  • LTE

All in all, nothing really impressive, but a respectable showing for a mid-range smartphone.
