Today's edition of alleged Samsung Galaxy S3 photos brings feelings of deja vu

0. phoneArena 30 Apr 2012, 08:28 posted on

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...

the one with the ruler seems legit, but again, can be dummy case and okay to be leaked, build up hype then May 3 comes, SURPRISE!

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.

5. PimpStrong (Posts: 310; Member since: 25 Jul 2011)


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.

6. REYNER (Posts: 187; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)


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.

19. sleepyjohnny (Posts: 151; Member since: 16 Dec 2009)


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

42. IHatePhones (Posts: 99; Member since: 12 Aug 2009)


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.

I personally like its front look. But I'm expecting the back cover to be ceramic instead of textured plastic. I'm really excited for the unveiling on May 3!

If this happened to be the real Galaxy S3, I'd be really disappointed. That design is nothing out of the ordinary for the hype and Samsung bragging against Apple.

To each their own I guess... Personally I love it but then again I love my Nexus design too. Man, I hope it comes to Verizon.

I don't like it at all. I much rather have something looking more like the International SII.

You spelled retarded incorrectly. It's very disrespectful to have used that word as an insult towards the design of a smartphone.

I like this design, would be more happy if no physical buttons.
Waiting for the battery capacity. If its huge then will decide...
I prefer a good battery like Droid Maxxx.

We would all prefer a great battery like the one in the MAXX.
