Alleged photos of T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S III look just like international model

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.

The white T-Mo GS3 looks more... well... white. The international looks beige compared to it. I was at least hoping they would change the screen size, make it a bit smaller, and hopefully have the quad Exynos instead of the S4... Unless the Exynos doesn't support 42 mb/s HSPA+

yeah, i don't think Samsung will be making any changes to the US variants. it's all for the sake of getting them to the US in a short amount of time.

But shouldn't they replace the physical home button with capacitive? To avoid being sued like they did with the other Galaxy devices?

From what I am hearing, The two capacitive buttons that it has are already really easy to accidentally hit with the lower palm part of your thumb. The placement of all the controls are sorta awkwardly place in my opinion. I would have much rather seen them placed higher towards the screen... Or better yet, have on-screen buttons. :P But oh well.

I'm not worried about them being sued because of the button, but I'm more sadden because I preferred the capacitive buttons rather than a home button AND capacitive buttons on the side. Would have been interesting to see if the carriers had different designs again. Too bad it won't be like that this time.

They better not. Why spend time suing Samsung because a phone that's better than the outdated brick than make their next iPhone better? By rumored specs, Apple is already behind in the mobile game so that's a shame really.

they cant sue because of a center button. Samsung has been doing that longer than Apple has been in the phone game. The issue was the large center button + touchwiz looking similar to iOS. now the button is narrow and touchwiz nature doesnt look anything like iOS. They dont have a case to sue. Well, im glad that Samsung is finally exerting its muscle and not bending to carrier stupidity when it comes to changing up the device. Now if only they would not have bent on the exynos trade out for the HSPA+ version. :)

Remix, the S4 is not a bad core at all. What's the beef? It has consistently benchmarked at or around the Exynos. You and I both know our company is going to pick speed over processor for the masses.
