Today's edition of alleged Samsung Galaxy S3 photos brings feelings of deja vu
The week has barely started, and a new crop of alleged Samsung Galaxy S3 photos is making the rounds. The pictures jibe with the concoction sent to us last week in terms of the Nexus-y front of the device, and with the textured battery cover renders from way back last year, so for all intents and purposes these seem like 'shopped image editing exercises, which we've seen being bandied around before.

One more reason to believe the latter is that Galaxy S III on the back is written with Roman, instead of Arabic numerals, whereas the internal labeling of the Samsung GT-I9300 test mule leaked from Vietnam not long ago clearly refers to the phone as "Galaxy S3", as do the keywords for the Samsung Unpacked app in the Play Store.

Anyway, we are summoning the patience to wait two more days until the grand unveiling in London, where we will be live handling the real deal in flesh and blood.

As long as it has good optic software and good lens, megapixels don't matter much.

Nokia N8, Nokia N9, and PureView 808. The PureView is an overkill but I personally loved the camera of the Nokia N8... until some dude stole it from me =(

Dear Lord of cellphone heavens please not this design (fingers crossed), the international version of the SGSII is even way better looking than this one.

I can't imagine this many leaks of this design and it not look like this. I like it personally. It's like a slightly curvier version of my GS2.

for me it looks good with the round edges, and looks more premium than the s II but how i hope it looks much much better in the release. but if not i guess the design is quite acceptable

Lol the photo showing back of the phone is actually galaxy nexus with Galaxy sIII label photoshopped on it.

lol its not. the entire back of the nexus isn't made of that material.

And the Nexus has a 5MP camera. In fact it looks identical the the Epic 4G touch in the back photo. Look at the top, it is square where the other photos show it as rounded...

The front side is also of galaxy nexus, just with blurred edges and buttons slapped on it.

For f**ks sake, NO!!!!!! I will be highly disappointed if this is the look of the new phone. Throwing awesome s**t under the hood doesn't make it a great phone.
