Samsung’s unconfirmed Hercules handset has emerged in the wild yet again with Telus branding, corroborating earlier rumors that state an imminent launch through the Canadian carrier.

– 1.2GHz Exynos processors
– 8 megapixel primary cameras
– 2-megapixel front-facing sensors
– Samsung’s TouchWiz UI overtop Android 2.3
