This week alone we have seen three separate leaks of what are purportedly press shots of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3. While it may be difficult to make heads or tails of those renders, what you see below are pictures of the GT-i9300 in the flesh.
Samsung GT-i9300 a.k.a Samsung Galaxy S3 / S2 Plus HD leaked pictures
Now if you’ve been following our stories from the beginning of the year, you will be well aware that based on the numbering convention, this is the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S2. Many have called it the Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus HD right up to the Samsung Galaxy S3, however whatever its name will be in the end, it is still the successor the the S2.
Featuring on-screen keys and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, there appears to be no signs of TouchWiz but there are a couple of Samsung apps preloaded. This suggests that we could be looking at an early build where TouchWiz isn’t completed yet. The source however adds that it features a 4.6-inch display just as expected and come with Android 4.0 preloaded.
On a side note, we can’t confirm if it has a ceramic body similar to Rado watches, given that there appears to be some kind of bumper around it. We’ll keep you posted as more develops but at this time this looks awfully like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and nothing too radical in terms of design.
