Maybe we just love tech and like to share our thoughts. Not everyone is a hater, some of us are interested in what is going on.

For real, I love android but if there was a windows phone or iphone that was up to snuff i'd buy.

Its pretty much looking like this is what the next iphone will look like by all sounds of it so we are looking at an iphone 4$$ really. the stretched screen looks wrong for some reason.

Because it's so far off from the golden ratio. You see it and your mind tells you it's not quite right, but you just can't put your finger on it. When design follows the golden ratio, you see it and it looks natural. This isn't natural looking, so it appears odd.

Ive's should have known that, if indeed this is what it will actually look like. We might all be surprised this September with something totally different.

[1 + (5)^0.5] / 2 -- as if the Samsung GIII matches that number. Oh please give it a rest.

Aeires, your ability at being unctuous will not be surpassed any time soon here on PA. We shall now call Aeires, "The Unctuous One who Pontificates Aloud."

That is a nice sobriquet.

Nice try, and great job on avoiding the obvious. The Samsung G3 has a much wider profile compared to the iPhone prototypes. When you stretch a screen and force it onto a smaller footprint like shown above, it looks odd. Samsung didn't do that.

It's clear you have some basic math skills, try studying art and design before so you can make an intelligent comment about the golden ratio instead of resorting to childish name calling.

I'd be so happy that when device comes out and becomes an epic fail that nobody likes, I'm gonna ready myself to shoot some fireworks outside my house to show how happy I am that Apple can taste some loss+suffering, it just makes me sick thinking they're best or may I say "revoluntionary" company lol

FAKE!
Front Camera above the speaker? And NO Proximity Sensor? If it is real then I guess people will be playing Angry Birds unintentionally while talking to grandma.

I hope that's not it. If it is I'll jus put iOS 6 on my 4S, and keep it pushing.

The screen looks fake to me, looks more like a dummy phone. Take a good look, you see that the screen is dark ( no background light)

I'm sorry, the phone looks cheap.... Don't know if it's the person who's taking the picture or the quality of the phone, probably fake?

If Samsung had a media event and the only visible difference between the Galaxy III and the Galaxy IV was a slightly longer screen a different plug they would be laughed out of town.

I guess it's to each their own. I'm just going to wait for the successor to the Evo 4G lte for my next device. (:

1. its a complete fake, someone went the extra mile to piece a dummy togethter.
2. the ui will never change, its just apple's style like RIM and WinMo 5.0 eventually it will go extinct.
3. they really need to balance out the screen a bit more. its all length and no width (thats What she Said). :)

One time I was in Thailand for my wedding. I was drugged and went to Bangkok where my fiance's little brother cut off his finger and got trapped in an elevator. My friends and I spent a day and a half looking for him, but found him and returned to the resort just in time for the wedding.

There's a few things that seem a bit off about this one. I'll call fake on this.
