Mock-up time: Galaxy S III
Sure, the Samsung Galaxy S III is among the hottest smartphones expected to arrive this year, but should almost every new rumor/leak be accompanied by yet another suspicious-looking mock-up? Well, why not?! Mock-ups are not only fun, but, as we know, sometimes we do get to set our eyes on the real thing, eventually proving that the image hasn't been a mock up...
That said, you might have noticed that we've seen a good number of Galaxy S III mock-ups appear over the last few months, some of which quite convincing (others not so much), and we're not even counting the ones specifically tagged as fan concepts. Whether or not any of those designs may turn out to be real is still beyond us. However, we thought it might be fun if go out and gather all of those bad boys, so that everyone can take a good look at them here, in the gallery below. We've also made sure to put a short description next to each one, as well as some rumored specs associated with it.
Well, what more can we say - in case the Galaxy S III is the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning, then we guess you'll simply love our sweet mock-up collection below!

ha, i was just thinking about the need for a "sgs3 fake evolution" slideshow. way to read my mind. lolz.
To our local guy that does the neat mock ups, can ya redo the white one in black or a dark navy? :) I am so turned off by white phones lol
9. bobfreking55 (Posts: 866; Member since: 15 Jul 2011)
i'll try if I have time. i'm kinda busy since i'm graduating. white phones are easier to fake since the reflections of white are not usually seen. and I agree with you on the i9300, looks fake and disgusting.
6. remixfa (Posts: 14174; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
I still say that "9300" is an SGS1 with a bad photoshop. The glare on the screen doesnt match the glare on the phone. Dimension wise, its exactly like an SGS1, with the samsung logo moved down a smidge for the screen.

the question i have is always about what touchwiz 5 would look like.
25. remixfa (Posts: 14174; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
I would assume it would be kind of similar to 4, but less intrusive. Of course, its already leagues less intrusive than Sense, which is why i can deal with it, but i digress. lol
the main calendar widget you use in your mock ups will probably be scrollable. all my stock widgets are scrollable in ICS, so I'd assume Samsung (and HTC) would follow suite.

I hope this phone is released in white on launch day. It would be my first white phone :)

I get so excited with this, I need a smartphone fix right now.

I do hope they retain the removable battery + regular sim + micro sd slot combo and not go the HTC one series way.
37. fwinst (Posts: 64; Member since: 08 May 2010)
Unless this phone has AMAZING battery life, I'm talking a minimum of 12 -14 hrs of talk time, I would want a removable battery. If I wanted to be tethered to a cord, I'd get the iPhone. I'm often out and about, without the ability to plugin. I want/need to be able to change the battery, and keep going. Unibody design will keep me away from the HTC One X. I can't say I'd buy the SIII if it is unibody. That would be a HUGE disappointment. MicroSD slot goes without saying.

I don't really care about the looks.
I also don't care if it's plastic, every phone I ever owned was plastic.
I am a complete specs whore and 2gigs of RAM, quad core Exynos, 4.7" super Amoled HD & the other specs rumors get me horny!
Problem is that I am infatuated with the 5.3" Galaxy Note so this Galaxy S3 will have to drop bombs to tear me away from my current love.
It is an internal struggle everyday just to stop myself from ordering a G.Note & I know the workers at Best Buy are sick of me coming to visit it.

It looks nice...but also it looks similar to no. 3 there!!
38. rockstarlive (Posts: 307; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
Galaxy Premier. GALAXY Grand. GALAXY Next. Could be the U.S. versions of the S3. So maybe all three could be LTE models. Sprint LTE. AT&T and Verizon.

Hey Smasung Guys I am a present user of S2 and NOTE
In case u listen to this just make sure not to repeat the isues like
Touch screen response time
Touch registration problem compared to LCD displays (Vitalij Fix only seems to work in the particular bench)
3G cutoff (Device Needs Restart)
3G goes on and off (sometime it happens, it constantly connects/ disconnects)
GPS Connectivity (its a lot better after having barometer in Galaxy note)
Mono Audio Recording
Battery Backup (both normal and 3g)
Heating Issue (Heats up more than 4S)
Camera Autofocus Issue
Low Light Camera Performance
Galaxy Note Stylus Lag
U know the reason Apple is so successful that most of the time apple don't do basic hardware/software mistakes that need advance developers to correct
& Iphones dont seems to suffer from this common day today issues.
hope u read this and correct
