I supposed it's not a real one. Just look at the side of the phone. No silver frame as what we can see on the front of the phone.
The frame seems covering all sides one the phone.
Well, first, this thing looks ugly in white. The huge chrome bezel just doesn't match the entire design in white. Black version will be much better.
Second, who says 5 icons is impossible on screen smaller than Galaxy Note? Even the 3.3" Xperia ray have 5 icons on dock.
Third, are they sure putting camera button on such super skinny phone? It will be very awkward, I tell you, unless the button is set to be very, very soft to press.
Fourth, seems manufacturers prefer physical buttons rather than onscreen buttons. I agree, I don't want these keys taking up my precious screen estate. Even Galaxy Nexus bottom bezel is just waste of space.
And last, I don't care how big the screen is, just don't make it wider than 70 mm. It's the maximum wide for most people to comfortably use for single handed operation.
i'm sorry but the Apple fans can't complain that Samsung isn't inovative. Let's say for example you have a Iphone 4S, who the hell is gonna know you have the company's flagship as it looks EXACTLY like it's predecessor?? But you dont hear anyone going about saying it. It seems to me that Apple fans are kind of.. whats that word.. oh, selfish, jealous, self-centered, and most importantly scared that Apple are these days not the best anymore :S Oh and before any Apple fans say anything, i have had the iPhone 4, SGS2, and iPhone 4S and best phone of them all... GS2 by a large margin.
The HTC One X rocking the 4.7" display is housing 5 bottom icons. Same goes for the Galaxy Nexus (4.65"). It's pretty standard for ICS phones, why would Galaxy SIII be any different?
What if Samsung decides to follow Apple with the naming trend (simply to get sued later on for using the same marketing technique) and names it just "Samsung Galaxy", no S, no III. My mind is blown, everybody panic! :P
It does look somewhat unappealing but I'd still get it as long as it's an improvement over the international SII, mostly in terms of an HD screen and battery capacity.

Samsung would slow down tech progression worse than apple? LOL they always pump out the best spec'd phones and apple always lowers their standards on the specs and you say samsung would slow it down worse than apple? Thats why S2 won the best phone in 2011 because of all the features cramped inside a single phone.. Now that is advancement in technology. The thing that samsung would definitely slow down is the DESIGN progression thats for sure.. I hate the galaxy s2 LTE design specially with the matte plastic back, it looks so cheap.. Thats why I keep mine on a beautiful case. I prefer better tech than better looks of the phone thats why I still chose GS2.
Has any1 noticed that GSMARENA made a false rumor? SGN has 5icons on the screen and it's 0.35inch below 5inch.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2012Apple fans who hate on Samsung are a joke. They know dam well Samsung provides the screen dis... moreThey are not stupid as you pointed out manufactured not designed. The maybe be making the retina display and A5 chip but they didn't design because if they did Samsung would have put an Retina display in there phones along time ago. There is a big difference as Samsung is one of the biggest display making companies in the world.
Viva la Vida, 17 Mar 2012Samsung phones are butt ugly. They like to rehash this overused iPhone design over and over in... moreTell that to Apple who's been asking Samsung to create parts for their iPad. LOL
qwertyuiop, 17 Mar 2012Really boring design, same iphone formula they have been using for all this time. Innovation i... moreThis is most likely a fake design, don't be too quick to pass the buck and pass criticism on something that does not yet officially exist. For all we know, the S3 may not be even called the GS3.
This doesn't look like SGS3 ... 1st it will come with ICS4.0 , which has a different look and icons. 2nd.. it will be with gorilla glass with more contrast in screen. 3rd it will be more thicker thand this image as being a higher dual core processor. and better resolution camera....i would say it will come in black color first... and sratch less back cover...
I dont think this is s3 becoz it cant be 5+ inch screen . Yes this can be note 2
Viva la Vida, 17 Mar 2012Samsung phones are butt ugly. They like to rehash this overused iPhone design over and over in... moreHear Hear! There's honestly only so much you can do with design when you're trying to deliver as much screen real estate as possible but the Xperia Arc managed to get it right. With the sales samsung's been seeing and the immense popularity of the s2, i'm guessing they don't want to fight a winning formula. But then again, seeing as how the s3 is supposed to be the follow up to pretty much the best phone till date minus the obvious smoothness of iOS, it'd be pretty disappointing if you're getting something that without scrutiny doesn't "look" much different than its predecessor...
Really boring design, same iphone formula they have been using for all this time. Innovation is something samsung lacks in droves. Their business plan is about mimicing the competition and adding features to make it look better.
This evident to the fact that every court case where a apple product vs a samsung one, apple always wins due to the similaritys in design.
You think a market dominated by apple is bad? Imagine a market dominated by samsung, technology wouldnt progress, far worse than what apple is doing now samsung would have no company to influence them.
Samsung should take a leaf out of sonys book and just try something different, innovate, look at the xperia s.
Boring, boring samsung.
hey, where is the in call speaker(earpiece). i cant see that. so this is also a fake right?
