Latest Galaxy S III render is probably a fake, but here it is

The above image is yet another purported look at the Samsung Galaxy S III. The above image is likely a fake. Though it bares some resemblance to a previous leak (the veracity of which can also be questioned), the latest render provides a look at a design distinct from previous images claimed to showcase Samsung’s next big thing. In this case, the on-screen image is taken from a round of Galaxy S II press renders and the rest of the device borrows from the Galaxy S WiFi 4.2.

While it’s definitely a possibility that the Galaxy S III will share design elements with the Galaxy S WiFi 4.2, which in turn takes cues from the redesigned Galaxy Tab 10.1 N, we’re just not seeing this as the real deal. Sure, it could be an early mockup or hastily assembled bit of promotional material if we are really looking for reasons to believe that what we are looking at is Samsung’s next flagship device, but we wouldn’t hold our breath.

    It would be kind of cool if it would look like this and it just shows the older version of wiz because we don’t know what the new one looks like yet. I mean that’s what they did with the SGS II. It had the exact body right and it just happened to have MIUI on it in leaked photos. Unless we get a real image we won’t get the real look of the OS. We will see in time.

    Good God that’s hideous..

      Seriously There was one rendered photo of the supposed GS III and it was a much more screen focused with less bezel. If this is the GS III they could have made the phone with alot less Bezel on top and bottom to really push that unique bezel-less look, and gotten rid of the hardware buttons at the bottom…..or at least slimmed it down at the bottom and given a tighter space for the Hardware buttons. Nonetheless, it is a decent looking phone…”Hideous” i’d say its close but not quite there to looking hideous

    I am testing this phone right now.

    No doubt this fake rendering showed up first in South Korea…then Taiwan…then Japan…then the rest of Asia…then the Middle East, Europe,
    Latin America, the rest of the developing (3rd) World and then finally the USA.
    Like everything else Samsung.

      So you’re saying it’s real?

  • Teh_Babyarm

    That’s way too iPhone inspired for Android folk.

    • Cipher Zero

      Unlike the Galaxy S? (oh come on, everyone knows those things looked like iPhones, all fanboy bullshit aside)

  • hot_spare

    GS2 home screen with same icons and pictures pasted over last “leaked” image. 

  • Dan Marschall

    After waiting and waiting for the GSIII (from DINC), if this is it, I will not buy it just based on looks.  It could be a beast of a phone but unless it looks the part as well, I’m not interested.

  • MarcusDW

    This one has dual front cameras.

    • Canon User

        Yup that’s why I put the picture up there. Looks exactly the same save for the cam is on the other side.

    Why don’t we just wait ’til Samsung releases the image before we start caring about these fake ones?

  • Adam Truelove

    Wow, if that is even close to the final design I’m glad I jumped on the Nexus when I did.  Talk about fugly.

  • Pip

  • fredphoesh

    its too long and thin to be the real deal… lets hope… cos the light grey frame is not pretty.

  • Guest
