Today's edition of alleged Samsung Galaxy S3 photos brings feelings of deja vu

Today's edition of alleged Samsung Galaxy S3 photos brings feelings of deja vu
The week has barely started, and a new crop of alleged Samsung Galaxy S3 photos is making the rounds. The pictures jibe with the concoction sent to us last week in terms of the Nexus-y front of the device, and with the textured battery cover renders from way back last year, so for all intents and purposes these seem like 'shopped image editing exercises, which we've seen being bandied around before.

One more reason to believe the latter is that Galaxy S III on the back is written with Roman, instead of Arabic numerals, whereas the internal labeling of the Samsung GT-I9300 test mule leaked from Vietnam not long ago clearly refers to the phone as "Galaxy S3", as do the keywords for the Samsung Unpacked app in the Play Store.

Anyway, we are summoning the patience to wait two more days until the grand unveiling in London, where we will be live handling the real deal in flesh and blood.

I like this design, would be more happy if no physical buttons. Waiting for the battery capacity. If its huge then will decide... I prefer a good battery like Droid Maxxx.

We would all prefer a great battery like the one in the MAXX.

You spelled retarded incorrectly. It's very disrespectful to have used that word as an insult towards the design of a smartphone.

I don't like it at all. I much rather have something looking more like the International SII.

To each their own I guess... Personally I love it but then again I love my Nexus design too. Man, I hope it comes to Verizon.

If this happened to be the real Galaxy S3, I'd be really disappointed. That design is nothing out of the ordinary for the hype and Samsung bragging against Apple.

I personally like its front look. But I'm expecting the back cover to be ceramic instead of textured plastic. I'm really excited for the unveiling on May 3!

For f**ks sake, NO!!!!!! I will be highly disappointed if this is the look of the new phone. Throwing awesome s**t under the hood doesn't make it a great phone.

The front side is also of galaxy nexus, just with blurred edges and buttons slapped on it.
