    I wouldn't believe that Samsung would delay the release of the S3 because they don't have 100% of S2s upgraded to ICS. I would believe that they're going to focus on when the next iPhone is going to be released, and try to maneuver their launch date around the iPhone's launch date. Which is rumored to be around June. Which also so happens to be 'the middle of the year'.

    They've got to announce the s3 before iphone 5... They'll lose out big time if they don't.

    I just read the source article .. lots of speculation and rumor .. I wouldn't take any of whats said even as a serious rumor.

    Its the internet kids .. not everything you read is true.. unless its about unicorns .. then its true. /sarcasm

    Eh, I'm not expecting it until probably late June, early July anyway so I would certainly hope they have the S2 on ICS by then.

    I still think the iPhone/Olympics reasoning makes the most sense of all the rumors which would put it around that time.

    Just my humble speculation of course..

    My Tbolt still holds its own against just about anything out there right now, so a few months is liveable.

    i see a lot of people mentioning the iphone release. and i see a lot of people saying it'll be released in the summer. it won't. it'll be fall. if it were releasing soon, ios6 would be announced very soon so it could be put into beta and in the hands of developers to be ready for a june launch. since that's not happening, expect a fall launch

    what that means for an s3 launch, i have no idea

    Since when updating android on last generation phones had anything to do with releasing new top model? SGSII release didn't have to wait until all variants of SGS got gingerbread if I remember correctly. SGSIII will surely launch before iPhone5.

    Agreed. HTC Desire got Gingerbread months after the HTC Desire HD/Z was released, and a major factor for the updates are the carriers.

    unless Samsung are certain their SG3 will blow the iPhone out of the water, then release it 1 day after the iphone5 to completely steal their thunder and sales.

    they do after all provide alot of parts for Apple and would have had a view of the components going into the new iPhone.

    Thing is, that's not a new thing, they have had it for a while.
    The only way Samsung can go is to release before iPhone 5. As soon as iPhone 5 is on pre order, you know hat will happen.
    I have iPhone 4s and am eagerly waiting two devices. The Galaxy S3 and The iPhone 5.
    I'm pretty sure that like many more people, I'm desperate to get hold of either and the one released first will get my custom.

    To be quite honest i am sick of waiting for this now. My upgrade is due Saturday so i'm just gonna go for the nexus or the xperia s

    If thats the case go for the nexus .. the experia s is garbage .. go read some reviews of it .. seriously.

    If I gave up waiting right now .. I'd likely be getting an htc one x .. at least its got up to date specs.

    Another day another leak:

    Looks like it's backside. Ceramic battery looking cover I guess.
    Could also be the front given the direction that it's chin curves and minimum size bezel.
    Eh...who knows lol

    It does bring about memories of the old galaxy nexus render:

    isnt there a main article about the new leak on the phandroid website? lol

    have to agree with J that it looks like the rear end...hmmm....theory...

    does ceramic cause less interference to radio and GPS signals compared the plastic counterpart?

    with it being a ceramic back...would that mean something along the lines of wireless charging?

    also...wouldn't ceramic technically mean its "greener" than plastics and metals? sammy has been looking to reduce its carbon footprint, and this might be the new material to do it?

    I hope it is the back of the phone, because that is way too much chin/bezel if it is the front.
  22. Jon_LTD

    Jon_LTD Well-Known Member

    Likewise - but I reckon it's the front..

    Samsung Galaxy S III Picture Leaks in Korea? - BriefMobile

    if that's the front of the phone. its fake. only way to explain the slope on the chin is that we're looking at the back of the phone. but why would they show the back of the phone on a slide like this?

    edit: nevermind, looked at his tweets later on..

    Haris Bin Shaukat ‏ @HarizBS
    @eldarmurtazin I guess you are hinting as it is the real deal :p

    Eldar Murtazin ‏ @eldarmurtazin
    @HarizBS no :)

    edit2: he responds earlier to somebody asking if quad or dual. he says not dual. so i guess (assuming he knows anything for once) that means no series 5 exynos :(

    Until Samsung makes it official, I'm not believing a damn thing anymore.

    The rumors around the phone state it will have a ceramic body, that would explain the back looking like ceramic in the photo. But with Verizon's quad-core lte issue I think i might just get the nexus in the next few weeks. The nexus I know I can root :)
