EXIF data on photo links it to Samsung GT-I9500, possibly the Samsung Galaxy S III
The EXIF data from a sample photograph indicates that the snapshot could be from the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S III. Yesterday, some specs about the device were printed in  the Korean publication ETNews, including word that the phone will sport a quad-core processor. Samsung fans recently produced a short teaser video to whet everyone's appetite.

Was this snapped from a Samsung Galaxy S III?

Was this snapped from a Samsung Galaxy S III?

The picture allegedly snapped from the heavily anticipated phone shows some type of potted plant in an office environment. Some piece of electronics, possibly a television, displays a product information sticker with the Samsung logo and some written words in Korean. This is important because the EXIF data shows that the picture was snapped by the Samsung GT-I9500 and the photo links to Suwon, South Korea where Samsung has...you got it!...a large factory.

While EXIF data can be manipulated, the connection to the Samsung Galaxy S III works like this. The original Samsung Galaxy S has the model number of GT-I9000. The Samsung Galaxy S II is model GT-I9100 while the Samsung GALAXY Nexus is GT-I9250. Thus, the Samsung Galaxy S III could be the GT-I9500. In an interesting note, the same person taking this photo snapped a test shot for the Samsung Galaxy S II months before its release which makes us more likely to believe that the picture in question is from the Galaxy S III.

When this comes out in a few short months it will smear feces in the Nexus face. Oh wait, the SGS2 already did that!

Then get ready to wait even longer. Samsung has made very few keyboard phone lately. Heck, they didn't even bother to make a SGSII keyboard model.

moto has been putting out so many phones it seems like they are just rushing POS like the bionic or rather they are trying to rush out new phones so people would forget such an embarrassment

I agree with you, they have really washed out the droid line. Hopefully they dont screw up next year.

This phone is must have for me. I love my SII, but i think SIII will push the smart phone HAREWARE to the limit, however I hope battery will on the phone.

I know it is an innocent spelling mistake. I know I should not laugh. But oh h*ll did I laugh at that one? YES, I DID. :D :D "Hareware" is my new favourite word :D
