More pics of the Galaxy S3 surface
It just wouldn’t be a proper news day without another batch of Galaxy S3 photos. Below are two shots, one of them showing off the fact that the photo was snapped in Brazil (the “UB” in I9300UBLD8 designates Brazil). The phone appears to still be cloaked in the custom case that is designed to obscure the final shape, which we expect to be the Galaxy-Nexus-esque device we showed yesterday.

The photo confirms the dedicated home button, and also shows off the faint impressions of back and “menu” keys (although we expect that menu will be the multi-tasking button). The tipster behind the images indicated that Samsung also intends to release a GT-i9800 phone, saying this is “just the beginning”.

We’re just about 48 hours out now from Samsung’s official announcement, so all will be revealed soon!

If this is it then still looks too plasticky. I thought ceramic casing was the "rumor."

There's a case over the actual body of the device to obscure its true shape. Read the article.

my ears perked as well. lol. maybe its the Note2?

this is just another shot of that fake demo testing casing we've already seen.

what is fun is that the whole thing looks like a large international S2, while if you look at the curved lines just inside, it looks like a large hercules-S2. Like samsung is giving us a Rasberry for trying to peek too soon. :)

I think this casing (body) is only for testing.

Not really. There is alot more Samsung (more than 50%) in the iphone, then there is iphone in Samsung products. If they did copy Apple the SG lll would have a weak azz A9 duel core. Lower resolution. & A small, cheap, old school, lcd screen. Oh, & no real customization...Because Apple Sucks !

Before we even get into this, Samsung has been making phones with home button much longer than apple has. Same can be said about other manufacturers such as HTC

If you take a look at the shape of the glass rather than the shape of the body, you can see what could be the final dimensions of the production phone's LCD & bezel. The curved corners looks very much like the GNex which I think is great. I do hope they go above and beyond with the case though.

If you zoom in closely, you can tell its curved like the gnex. I hope it looks good and the U.S Carriers op for no home button because im not a fan of the button.

Its part dummy and part true. True phone has probably curved design and its in fake case. Its like cars camouflage. Look at the lines inside fake case :)
