Alleged photos of T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S III look just like international model
Last year, there were some noticeable differences between the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S II and the models sold in the States. There even was some difference between the models sold amongst those major U.S. operators that were offering the phone. You might remember that last year we showed you the difference between the Apple iPhone-style home button on the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Android navigational buttons used on the U.S. model. Apple had claimed in a lawsuit that Samsung had copied some of its designs for the Samsung Galaxy S II from the Apple iPhone, including the home button.

This year, it doesn't appear that there will be any changes between the international and U.S. versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III. If  pictures of the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S III obtained by The Verge are legit, the device will look exactly the same-with a home button-as the international model. Outside of the T-Mobile branding on the back cover, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between this phone and the international model.

But will there be any changes within the carriers in the States? Last year, T-Mobile and Sprint carried variants of the Samsung Galaxy S II with a 4.52 display. AT&T's model was equipped with a 4.3 inch screen. Additionally, both AT&T and Sprint (whose model also had a 4.52 inch screen) had versions of the phone powered by a dual-core Exynos processor while T-Mobile's model had a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon under the hood.

If we can go by the lack of change seen in the international model of the Samsung Galaxy S III and the purported T-Mobile model, there might just be one look for the device globally. Speculation is that T-Mobile will be launching the Samsung Galaxy S III on June 20th.
