Default Galaxy S III Leaked photo (?)


Leaked from SamsMobiles on twitter (https://twitter.com/#!/SamMobiles/status/150210109509873665/photo/1). Pretty good looking if this ends up being the real deal!

It's not real. It's just a render someone did.

I would imagine a phone with ZERO bezel would be very hard to use.
Holding it would very likely cause touches to be registered at the edges of the screen. Im sure there is scope to make the bezel smaller but not Zero.

Yeah, not a good design at all. So most likely a fake.

How many of u hold your phone by the bezel? Yeah...

The bezel on the s2 is barely there as it is. Not saying that pic is real...just pointing out the obvious.

Just gripping it naturally, if it had no bezel, it would register all kinds of inputs. I get inputs now with the current GS II.

'Bezel' was perhaps a bad description - but I think what the guys mean is that the screen image - and hence one may assume - the touch screen sensitivity, extends to the very edge of the glass. That would not work very well.

Honestly, whoever did this, did a very good job. That is a unique clock widget that would be a very good one to have. But I cant see samsung making there software buttons look that cheesy. But I am excited for March....I've already started my savings fund for the SG III.

They wouldn't make the screen go all the way to the edge, because it would detect your fingers and activate whatever is near, possible switching homescreens or who knows what.
This is the reason for the thick black frame around tablet displays, gives you somewhere to put your thumbs...

This render looks cool, but not practical, although LG did something close to this, but with a bubbled screen or something.

I have heard many rumors that Galaxy S3 will be based on the same look as S2 but it will have larger screen and of course other components upgraded as well.

That's not an issue they couldn't prevent. After some light settings tweaks, my laptop's touchpad will not recognize input from my palm, or anything other than one or two finger clicks/gestures. They just need to put some research into how people hold their phones, and how to prevent accidental screen input.

New image of what MIGHT be the Galaxy SIII. I personally will pass if it ends up looking like this. Of course you could use it to play seesaw with Lego people!

Could be chinese trolls, if it exists, they can make a copy of it, so no reason they can't make something up themselves, lol.

Realistically I'd say that it's probably an updated Galaxy Player device (it's like an ipod but with more features, can connect to and control samsung smart TVs like only our SIIs and existing Galaxy Players can)

I hope not! I can just see myself wiping my fingerprints off the chrome edges ALL DAY LONG. Reminds me of my LG Dare from 2 years ago.

There is some doubt about where it's actually legit. Not sure I'd be interested in a 5.3" screen that is pictured here.
there is zero doubt. it is 100% fake

Leaked photo suggest possible screen size of 4.8" according to article.

Another Samsung Galaxy S III photo apparently leaks, suggests a 4.8 inch display is featured Unwired View

Should know for sure on May 3rd however.

This would be just fine by me. I wanted to get the Nexus so bad, but I apparently part of the small contingent who actually care if the phone part of the cell phone works well. I really hope Sammy addresses taht issue with this phone, and I'll be the first in line. Well, not first, but I'll get there as soon as I can.

according to GSMArema.com the image is confirmed as old and has surfaced before. It's certainly a mockup.
