Samsung Unpacked app keywords refer to a Galaxy S3 title, fuzzy photo hints at the ceramic back
The keywords which Samsung used to describe its 2012 Unpacked app in the Google Play Store reveal a possible Galaxy S3 title for its upcoming flagship phone, that is about to be unveiled May 3 in London.

Given that the device has been more popular as the Galaxy S III, with Roman numerals, yet Samsung uses S3 as a keyword, and the hint from UK carrier insiders that it might not be called what everyone expects, a change from Roman to Arabic numerals could fit the description.

Now that we are mostly aware of the expected specs, given last week's leak of a Samsung GT-I9300, which also had Samsung S3 label inside, the big question is design. Rumors peg the exterior as made of glass ceramic, and painted in white or blue, with both colors used in the poster for the initial announcement about the Unpacked event in London, as well as in the video teasers yesterday.

Perennial leaker Eldar Murtazin, who has been teasing for a while to use his embargoed prototype daily, posted a fuzzy pic in his Twitter feed yesterday of a white Samsung something with the cryptic update "love white glossy finish on phones". This immediately started the speculation it could be the alleged ceramic chassis of the white Galaxy S3, although nothing really can be seen but some reflections from what seems to be uneven surface.

Whether or not that is the case we'll see next week in London, but what do you think about the eventual Galaxy S3 naming. Simple enough?
