Alleged Samsung Galaxy S III photo surfaces, showing a rectangular home button and five row interface

0. phoneArena 13 Apr 2012, 04:11 posted on

There is the physical home button underneath the display, which we recently learned has made its way into the front design at the last minute, as well as the rumored five row UI, similar to the Galaxy Note layout. In fact, Samsung has an R&D center in Poland, which leaked the Galaxy Note chillaxing in the metro in someone's hands before the official announcement, so this thing might have some dose of credibility to it...

I hope this is NOT the S III. Looks like a mid tier model not a flagship.

Yeah I have to agree with you. This is just some mock-up only. The Samsung Galaxy S III will definitely not look like this! It's too dark & the shape is too plain for it to be their new flagship.

On another note, I really can't wait to see what the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will look like. That is going to be my next phone. I can wait a whole year for that phone. I really would love to see a 2.0 to 2.5GHz quad-core A-15 Exynos with 2GB of RAM with a 5.3" 1600x900 Super AMOLED+ HD screen. I am sorry but the Galaxy Note 2 will squash the Samsung Galaxy S III. Just like the Samsung Galaxy Note killed the Samsung Galaxy S II.

I WILL be skipping the Samsung Galaxy S III!

I hope it isn't the gs3 either as if it is i'll get a htc one x instead,i like my phones to look different on each upgrade not iphone style incremental changes. Thats the beauty of android though,its not a one phone os,you can have several new top choices of handsets to pick from.

If Samsung has sent galaxy s3 phones to networks to performs network tests,however while the phones internals are the true internals the outward appearance is a fake box to keep the true design secret,then this is probably one of these tester handsets

Exactly, that is what I am thinking also! They purposely make the test units ugly so they can't be leaked out.

Apple is the only company who likes to leave their "so called" test phones (more like final units) at the bar & so on! lol

It'll be illogical for that to be the SGS3...it's too close to the Note.

kind of weird to be thinking that a Note 2 is already being made since the past Note was based on the S2. The first note's specs were more of an exaggeration of the specs of the S2.

The Note also, is a sexy device and was just currently a hit. I hope this isn't a note 2, and I also hope this isn't the SGS III.

it actually looks like a bigger S2 combined with the first Galaxy S' design elements - so there is a possibility that this may be the SGS 3. just a possibility. i'm still hoping it isn't.

however the razr came out with the maxx shortly after to improve battery life so its not completely out of the question.

Yeah maybe but why is it still millions of people owning Samsung phones??!! They already over taken Nokia, really doesn't care the design, people buy Samsung phones because its unique features. Galaxy s 3 once launch, it will set a new trend again.

Worst fake I've seen for a while. The guy making it didn't even know how to align things in Photoshop, ref the icons and blue stripe...

One simple example of this site is too filed with iPhone hating crowd . SEE
All Wendy says that if that's the real s3 she would buy the iPhone 4s and see how many thumbs down she gets
Most consumer when buying a smartphone will consider either the iPhone , galaxy or HTC line up yet most users of this site have clearly something against the iPhone for no reason

gellerdoesdallas : if you say she's trolling than you also indirectly mean that the guy that say that he will take the OneX if thast the real design of the S3 is also trolling .

If someone said I would get a Fiat 300 over an Audi R8, I would totally dislike their comment. Same case here ^_^
