Default I bought a i9300 but download mode says it's a i747

I bought a i9300 but the phone's download mode says it's a i747.

The box, manual, back of the phone, and settings menu, all says that my phone is a i9300. I also used a CPU-Z app which says the phone has the MSM8960 board, a dual-core processor (Krait 1.5GHz) and 2GB of ram. How can I know for sure which phone I have?

The specs can confirm you have an i747.

Thank you guys for your replies. Now I'm just wondering why there's a i9300 ROM on the i747

Does this mean my phone is rooted? I can't update my phone, there's an error whenever I do it the official way.

I rooted it with files for the SGH-i747m, NOT the GT-i9300. I'm using the SlimBean ROM and it's stable.

I hope this thread helps b/c I couldn't find any real answers when I needed it.
