    I’m not sure how much I want to trust any of this because it shows pictures of the SGH-t679. That was called the Galaxy Exhibit 4G or the Galaxy Exhibit II, while this newer one is simply called the Galaxy Exhibit. It’s a different phone, much closer to the S3 mini. Consdidering that you have the picture wrong, the specs wrong (memory, camera size) and even the full name wrong, I’ll leave it up to somebody else to see if this has anything at all to do with the SGH-t599 aside from having part of the name right.
