Samsung Galaxy S3 Will Come With Physical Home Button

The Korea-based publication, Digital Daily, has fresh information about Samsung Galaxy S3, but don’t pop the champagne bottle yet, as they aren’t talking about specifications, release date, or price. The Korean website talks about the design and the user interface of the yet unreleased Samsung Glaaxy S3. It seems that the new terminal will keep the Home button, although it was early rumors said that the device will only feature capacitive buttons.

Source say that Samsung decided in the last moment to keep the physical Home button on Galaxy S3 and the company also decided to bet on a 5 column user interface, like the one already available on Galaxy Note. As you probably know Galaxy Nexus and latest Android-powered models have a 4 column UI. It is rumored that the physical Home button subject was intensely debated by Samsung officials. Some designers presented concepts reminiscent of Galaxy Nexus, a button-less design, while others voted for a design Galaxy Note-ish design.

The good news is that Samsung Galaxy S3 is already tested by carriers and their developers, so we might be able to cast a glance at some leaked photos, pretty soon.

Rumor has it that Samsung Galaxy S3 will feature a 4.65-inch display with 16:9 ratio and HD Super AMOLED technology, 1 GB of RAM, NFC and LTE support and a 12 megapixel camera with video recording capabilities. Since Galaxy S3 will leave the factory gates with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board, it will come with face unlock, taking stills while recording videos support and ICS’ advanced multitasking system.

Samsung confirmed a few weeks ago that they are working on their own quad-core chipset for their next flagship, which will keep the Exynos nickname. We don’t know yet the frequency of SGS3′s CPU, but my guess is that it will be clocked at 1.5 GHz.

Samsung CEO said in late March that we will be able to get our hands on the new Galaxy smartphone “sooner than we expect,” and one-week old rumors say that Samsung Galaxy S3 release date is may 22nd.
