And no, it's not a Nexus
As Samsung prepares to launch the Galaxy S3 Mini in Germany today, we have news of another unannounced handset, the Galaxy Premier. The phone, also known by its model number GT-i9260, was previously rumored to be a re-vamped Galaxy Nexus, owing to its hardware similarities, and the closeness of its model number to the Nexus's GT-i9250. But as you can see from the leaked image above, obtained by German site MobileGeeks, it is in fact a mid-range TouchWiz device, just as we'd speculated on the Android Central forums.
The Galaxy Premier's hardware specs aren't a million miles away from the Galaxy Nexus, though. Inside there's a 4.65-inch HD SuperAMOLED display, a 1.5GHzdual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera and 8 or 16GB of internal storage, backed up by a microSD card slot. On the software side, it's running the (almost) latest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean alongside Samsung's TouchWiz Nature UX.
As with any unannounced device, take this leaked info with a pinch of salt until we see something official. Nevertheless, it seems the mystery of the GT-i9260 is well and truly solved at this point.
