Samsung Unpacked app keywords refer to a Galaxy S3 title, fuzzy photo hints at the ceramic back

Samsung Unpacked app keywords refer to a Galaxy S3 title, fuzzy photo hints at the ceramic back
The keywords which Samsung used to describe its 2012 Unpacked app in the Google Play Store reveal a possible Galaxy S3 title for its upcoming flagship phone, that is about to be unveiled May 3 in London.

Given that the device has been more popular as the Galaxy S III, with Roman numerals, yet Samsung uses S3 as a keyword, and the hint from UK carrier insiders that it might not be called what everyone expects, a change from Roman to Arabic numerals could fit the description.

Now that we are mostly aware of the expected specs, given last week's leak of a Samsung GT-I9300, which also had Samsung S3 label inside, the big question is design. Rumors peg the exterior as made of glass ceramic, and painted in white or blue, with both colors used in the poster for the initial announcement about the Unpacked event in London, as well as in the video teasers yesterday.

Samsung Unpacked app keywords refer to a Galaxy S3 title, fuzzy photo hints at the ceramic back
Perennial leaker Eldar Murtazin, who has been teasing for a while to use his embargoed prototype daily, posted a fuzzy pic in his Twitter feed yesterday of a white Samsung something with the cryptic update "love white glossy finish on phones". This immediately started the speculation it could be the alleged ceramic chassis of the white Galaxy S3, although nothing really can be seen but some reflections from what seems to be uneven surface.

Whether or not that is the case we'll see next week in London, but what do you think about the eventual Galaxy S3 naming. Simple enough?

Really hope any ceramic parts are easily replaced, ceramic shatters like glass.

I wonder if Apple will sue Sammy for infringing Apple's patent on new product introduction? Sammy's rollout sounds awfully similar to Apple's approach.

Hope it's not glossy. I like a texture surface better.

don't care much if it's ceramic or plastic as long as the phone is relativity lightweight.

On CNBC moments ago...Ralph De La Vega ATT President and CEO...when adked about latest and greatest phone... he touts the Lumia. He doesn't even mention the HTC One X or Galaxy Note. (Also holds up an iPhone during the discussion about $400 subsidies ATT pays Apple for the phone).

He's not worried about the sales of the other phones like he is about the Lumia. He's there to advertise and plug products that need it. Apple stocks dropped last week when investors learned that carriers were going to cut iphone subsidies.

You dumb sh*t I am Hispanic & that means "I like" you f*cking legend of humanity. Man you must have won dumbest person who talks without knowing anything in high school.

No problem, it took me literally 2 minutes to type that & that is because I did it from my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. On a PC it would have been maybe 40 seconds if that.

Thats better than naming it "the new galaxy s". galaxy s3 sounds great. i would love ceramic i even like the p lastic on my s2 so i am gonna love ceramic a lot. I just hope it wont have the overclocked mali 400 gpu. And i havent seen a blue smartphone since the n8.wondering how that would look. anyways i love white so even if the blue looks bad i am gonna pick up the white one.

Optional plastic case would make sense...for people like me who are worried of shattering their phone (when dropped) rather than so called build quality!
