Let’s jump right in: the device pictured above is claimed to be the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III. The image has been allegedly snapped by a person who claims to have the device in his hands for testing purposes.
No details were attached to the picture but let’s see what we can make out of it. We have the classic Samsung design (which didn’t change much over time from the original Galaxy S to the Galaxy S II and the alleged S III in the purported image above). Still, the device above seems to be spot on with recent rumors we’ve heard about the Galaxy S II refresh.
According to those the upcoming device will still feature a home button, thus slimmer, elongated. As you can see in the image, it appears that way. Additionally, the same rumors were talking about a five-row icon display which, even if censored, can be seen above. We’re not sure this is the Galaxy S III but it looks like the picture above matches the most recent rumors. Oh, and from the looks of it, we’re seeing vanilla ICS (at least the program tray which definitely looks different with TouchWiz).
What do you think, real of fake? We say fake (hints: screen seems to almost overlap Samsung branding at the top; display isn’t parallel with device top and bottom, blue line at the top broken at the middle, etc.).
