The Samsung Galaxy Premier has had a busy schedule in the past weeks. After we caught the unofficial Nexus phone successor making a stop at Taiwan’s FCC-like agency (NCC), which hinted its impending arrival, the Premier now stars in a billboard ad alongside the rest of the Galaxy lineup in Guangzhou, China.

Looking at the ad, which was first spotted by ePrice, it seems Samsung is planning to introduce two variants of the Premier: the I9260, which  we’ve known and talked about in the last couple of months, and the lesser known I9268 model. The latter may be a specific release for the Chinese market.

While Samsung hasn’t made the Galaxy Premier (I9260) official yet, it’s not like we don’t already know most of its specs. The only two things missing for now are the phone’s release date and pricing information.

The word on the street is that the Premier will be launched in December, but we’re not sure if this applies to the phone’s international debut as well. Price-wise, expect it to become the more affordable alternative to the flagship Galaxy S3, though probably not by much. It does pack a 4.65-inch HD display, a snappy 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4470 dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
