Samsung Galaxy S3 image leak hints at redesign

Another snap purporting to be of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has leaked online, suggesting the phone-maker could opt for a more radical design overhaul than previously unearthed images had hinted.

Last week, a photo cropped up on Phone Arena apparently showing the S3. The image revealed a form factor that was largely unchanged from the S2, except that Samsung had dispensed with physical buttons and made room for more screen real estate.

However, over the weekend a new photo surfaced in Reddit’s Android section depicting a handset purported to be the S3 but with a very different look.

Among the differences in evidence is an edge-to-edge bezel to make room for a larger screen and what looks like a significantly slimmer form factor. And there’s a dedicated camera button on the side of the phone and a two-tone colour scheme too.

It’s thought that some of the changes are aimed at circumventing legal action from Apple, which is locked in a series of patent infringement legal tussles with Samsung.

The S3 was originally expected to launch in February at Mobile World Congress, but has been delayed to allow Sammy to co-ordinate a more impactful simultaneous global release.

Features expected to be on board the phone include a waterproof coating, a 12 megapixel camera and a Tegra3 quad-core processor to bring it up to speed with the similarly brawny HTC One X and LG Optimus 4X.
