Alleged Samsung Galaxy S3 photo shows both physical and capacitive buttons

0. phoneArena 27 Apr 2012, 02:32 posted on

There is evidently a physical home key, as rumored, and two capacitive buttons, while the whole setup resembles a lot the render from the leaked early manual of a Samsung GT-I9300 Galaxy S3 that we saw yesterday. The side bezel of what seems to be quite a big display is pretty thin, but we'll leave the speculations on screen size aside, as we can't vouch whether this is the real deal anyway...

I like it, the roundish in the corners, like the other guys said. Seems good..
And this S3 is not about the physical structure it is expected a lot, we are expecting on the specs sheet..

Looks good with great balance design! This is the better pic of the alleged GS3 to date...

This is the big rumored 4.8" 1080p display?

This is full photoshop. Look at the the capacitive buttons, home and back are ok, but ICS does.not have a menu button as one of the 3 main buttons. They had to putthe multitaking button. So this is a full photoshop of the GNex.

cant understand the hullabaloo about hardware? Much more important is the software and what you can do with the device - not what it looks like!

For the majority of smartphone owners looks is more important

If it's not vanilla Android, I couldn't care less about software, and hardware is all that matters, because I'll be ROMming it, anyway.

Design looks pretty good, but I hope this isn't the final design. It should have a more distinct look, like the SGS, SGS2 and GNex.

In 4.0 menu key was gone, devs are moving away from it why would a company want that ?

i agree. i like having a menu key but Google is moving away from that. now you get multitasking, home & back.

Okay, what about the One series? ICS isn't supposed to have any capacative buttons, but they do and are shipping with ICS. If this were coming straight from Google I'd agree with you, but since this will be a manufacturer skinned phone, the manufacturer can do whatever they want. I'd guess that this version of Touchwiz has menu button capability. It doesn't matter if the capability isn't native to ICS becuase it can be added to the manfacturer skin.

i didn't say it was fake because it had capacitive keys, i said it was fake because it had a menu key. while HTC has decided to stick with traditional capacitive keys they're still in the new layout so your point is moot.

Each smartphone cost Samsung more than $100 million in R&D, all phone will have round edge or square edge, if you wanted totally different look make your own. Last year Samsung spent about $10 billion in R&D for all products. Apple spent about $3 billion in R&D and made $11 billion in profit in Q1 of 2012.
