Samsung’s eagerly awaited Galaxy S3 will boast five touch-sensitive buttons, an anonymous official at the phone-maker has reportedly revealed.

In a direct contradiction of several alleged image leaks in recent weeks, which led us to believe the handset will at most house three buttons below the screen similar to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the shadowy tipster has revealed that in fact there will be an additional two.

“Galaxy S3 will feature a dedicated button to S-Cloud and one for speech recognition,” the source claimed.

S-Cloud, in case you were unaware, is a rumoured cloud service similar to Apple’s iCloud expected to launch alongside the Galaxy S3.

What’s interesting is that there will be a dedicated button for speech recognition, which makes us wonder whether the Galaxy S3 will feature a built-in voice-guided assistant like Siri on the iPhone 4S.

The Galaxy S2 already offers similar functionality powered by Vlingo, but a more integrated solution could certainly steal some of Apple’s thunder,

Samsung is due to host its red-hot Unpacked event in London’s Earl’s Court on May 3rd where it’s almost guaranteed to officially announce the handset. We’ll be in attendance to cover the proceedings in full, so keep ‘em peeled.
