Another image of a handset purported to be the Samsung Galaxy S3 has surfaced, as anticipation builds around the year's most-wanted Android kit.
Unearthed by Phone Arena, whose source touted it as the “real deal”, the photo shows a smartphone that echoes the plastic construction and design of the S2, but is sans front-facing physical buttons.
It also appears to rock a larger screen, room for which has been cleared by dispensing with the aforementioned pressers in favour of virtual, onscreen buttons.
This would chime with rumours that Sammy will equip its next flagship phone with a display in the region of 4.7-4.8-inches, bringing it broadly in line with new kits from rival Android phone makers HTC and LG.
Other signs are less convincing, however. Not least the fact that the phone actually looks beefier than the S2.
And there’s a substantial-looking bezel too – flying in the face of indications that Sammy would opt to keep the gap between the screen and the edge of the device to a minimum.
Either way, we'll find out the truth soon enough. The S3 is expected to make its official debut during the second quarter, possibly to tie in with the start of the London Olympics.
