Alleged Samsung Galaxy S III photo surfaces, showing a rectangular home button and five row interface
From the confines of a Polish mobile phone blog a picture of something in flesh and blood has appeared, that is claimed to be the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III. This is no render, as most previous leaks, but rather a dark rectangular handset lying on a desk.

There is the physical home button underneath the display, which we recently learned has made its way into the front design at the last minute, as well as the rumored five row UI, similar to the Galaxy Note layout. In fact, Samsung has an R&D center in Poland, which leaked the Galaxy Note chillaxing in the metro in someone's hands before the official announcement, so this thing might have some dose of credibility to it.

The source says it was sent to them by a guy who claimed he is currently a tester, and who had censored the UI details beforehand. The Galaxy S III has allegedly been kept on the hush-hush for so long, as carriers got a generic box with only the screen and the ports uncovered, so the testers didn't leak the design prematurely.

Yet this thing doesn't look inserted into a case or anything, seems to be running stock ICS, like an early test model, and the app icons columns don't seem particularly aligned with the phone, which might be due to the clumsy 8-bit "censoring" of the interface, though. 

Anyways, leaks like these are supposed to keep us warm until the real thing drops, hopefully next month. What do you think about the latest contestant in the Galaxy S III leak show?
