Test shots from Galaxy S3 for top four carriers surface


It looks like Samsung might be on track for a June launch with at least one of their carrier partners here in the United States. Devices are already in the hands of testers and, as you’d imagine, those eager souls have begun uploading photos from the device’s camera to the internet.

PocketNow procured the shots and have provided one from each version of the device. T-Mobile’s sample can be seen above. The shots show us nothing terribly special about the camera itself, though most of these shots are admittedly bad. Take a look at the rest at the source link. Oh, and that T-699 we posted about earlier definitely isn’t the Galaxy S III. [PocketNow]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Thats one blurry picture.

    1. Because the aperture is set smaller so the focus is further away. Notice that the ceiling tiles are more in focus than the printed words on the cubicle wall.

  2. le meh

  3. If memory serves me correctly, I remember this happening with the SII camera. The leaked shots weren’t the best, and so many were quick to criticise and question the quality of the camera. When the phone was finally released, the camera got praise, and ended up being one of the best on the market along with the phone itself. No doubt the tester didn’t let it focus, not to mention their could be smudge marks from greasy fingers over the lens. Ill judge when I get to play with one/its officially released. But great news nonetheless for the U.S. Folk. This time round, I’ve still heard nothing for australia, hopefully not waiting forever!

  4. Doesn’t look bad for an indoor picture..

    Idiots need to use your brain before your fingers.

  5. what an Android fail

  6. How could a photo taken on such a high end device look so crappy? I don’t think it’s so difficult to take a photo.

    1. a picture is only as good as the person taking it. A newb using a leica will still take crappy photos.

      For one thing, he’s taking pictures under florescent light which will cast a greenish tint on your photo unless you filter it out. There is no composition to this photo obviously and I’m not really sure where he was intending to focus the shot but the focus is on the ceiling.

      And finally, I really don’t care about the camera in a cell phone. They all suck next to a semi decent SLR.

  7. I don’t think the point of the article is showing off the pictures, its the fact that the S III is testing in the US. If these people just got their phones, they would have taken pictures of whatever, just playing around, and not worried about getting THE BEST quality. So hopefully we don’t hear any of that whining.

  8. A tmobile rep told me a couple of weeks ago that we (tmobile) will be in fact getting the galaxy s3 first. take it with a grain of salt. But lets go!!!!

  9. For everyone saying how blurry the picture is, its not just the camera that effects picture quality; its the photographer. I for one cannot hold a camera steady and most of my pictures turn out blurry. I know a lot of people are disappointed in the sg3, but let’s wait until it is released to pass judgment. I really hope it turns out to be a good device, because I need to upgrade from my thunderbolt and don’t think I can wait until the end of the year to get a new phone :/

  10. Wow, that picture from the Verizon phone is really helpful.

  11. this is stupid.
