Alleged Samsung Galaxy S3 photo shows both physical and capacitive buttons
posted by Daniel P. / Apr 27, 2012, 2:32 AM
a physical home key, as rumored, and two capacitive buttons, while the whole setup resembles a lot the render from the leaked early manual of a Samsung GT-I9300 Galaxy S3 that we saw yesterday. The side bezel of what seems to be quite a big display is pretty thin, but we'll leave the speculations on screen size aside, as we can't vouch whether this is the real deal anyway.There is evidently
In fact, Samsung's VP Robert Yi all but confirmed the naming scheme yesterday at the quarterly results conference call with the slip of the tongue “We are anticipating very strong demand of Galaxy S3”, so at least that guessing game seems to be over now. What are your thoughts on this latest claimant to be the Galaxy S3?
Thanks for the tip!

In case you didn't notice, Sony's NXT series alone have 3 completely different phones, Xperia S, P and U. They've introduced one more to the series which is the Xperia Sola. And there's an Xperia Arco HD for the Japanese market, and Xperia Ion for the US, all with noticeable designs.

This Photo is.FAKE!!! I wonder how hasn't anyone noticed the colour of the screen yet. The Super AMOLED Plus screen of my sgs2 looks black even when the screen is turned off. Here, in this photo it looks grey like an LCD. No way the Galaxy S3 is coming with an LCD. So this picture looks fake to me and this design may be just another mock up.

yeah, all previus versions of amoled looked black as hell when their turned off. but we dont know what kind of amoled gs3 will have. and I read that samsung made a new technology for galaxy S3 amoled with a totaly diffrent subpixel green. might as well look gray when it turned off...

The more curved design doesn't surprise me at all. We can thank Apple and their lawsuits against Samsung for that. I think it actually looks alright but I would have preferred it if Samsung had saved the design of their new galaxy player with the speakers at the top and bottom for the S3 instead. I'm not entirely convinced that this is the S3 though... Take the home button for instance. It is not rectangular like on previous Android Galaxy phones. The shape of it is what Samsung has used for its Bada phones. So this could actually be the next Bada phone, unless Sammie wants to "unite" the design language between its Android and Bada line up.

A bit roundish for my personal liking, but I don't think this is the final physical design. Not bad though.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess, but I prefer roundish design cues over the squarish ones found in previous Galaxy models. This phone looks gorgeous to me. Of course, Samsung will probably tweak the design for every US variant of the device, as always, so maybe there's hope for you yet (assuming you're in the US of course...)
