    We have some pretty interesting tidbits to share with you guys and gals this fine Monday morning. Their are rumors that the Samsung Galaxy SIII superphones have just now entered the production phase of development. Furthermore, a Samsung exec supposedly leaked that the new flagship device from Sammy really will come sporting some of the juicy high-end specs we have heard about. According to this anonymous exec, the device will supposedly come with a Quad-Core Samsung Exynos CPU, built on a 32nm process and A9 architecture. It is also going to come with both LTE and WCDMA radios built by Samsung.

    The report that this came from indicated that this is Samsung's big move to start becoming more self-reliant by developing most of their own internal components. This will allow them to be less dependent on third party manufacturers like Qualcomm.

    Update: We missed this one from the weekend, but it looks like another potential pic for the SGS3 was leaked, and this is the perfect story to include it. We've changed the pic above to the new (supposedly leaked by a Samsung employee) "mr. blurry-cam" photo. Update Source: AndroidCentral

    It has not been confirmed that the pic is real, but it certainly makes for some interesting speculation...

    WCDMA is GSM and is most probably a global phone.

    I suspect it's fake too. No way they are launching this without TouchWhiz. I also expect capacitive buttons.
