    Samsung have more leaks than a colander! :listen:

    This one is 4 builds and 12 days later than the previous, "leak".

    If I was a suspicious, conspiracy theory, type... I would say that these are controlled leaks to get free, real world, testing. This is usually followed by one release of the official firmware, usually on an International device with a European CSC/Product code, before they start the roll out. ;)

    Do you need to be a suspicious, conspiracy type to believe that , I thought it was known by everyone:eek:

    That was said by me... tongue-in-cheek, volimte21. ;)

    However, being the gentle, kind, puppy loving, person that I am, I like to think the best of everyone... :rolleyes:
