Is This The First Real Photo Of Samsung Galaxy S III?

Phone Arena got their hands on what it seems to be the first authentic leaked picture of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone.

What I first noticed is that the leaked terminal has round edges, reminding me of the sketched Samsung Galaxy S III we presented you earlier today, along with a list of technical specifications extracted from what it seemed a service manual of GT-I9300. Once more, the physical Home button the South Korea-based company decided to keep in the last moment, can be spotted in the picture above.

Like always, we can’t be sure that the pictures are authentic and that the terminal is the real Samsung Galaxy S3, especially after the recent avalanche of leaked photos of Samsung’s next flagship smartphone. Most of the leaked pictures revealed a¬†rectangular¬†device, reminiscent of Galaxy S II, which didn’t featured a physical Home button. As I mentioned when the first pictures hit the web, I am almost certain that back then we were looking at the disguised prototypes Samsung sent for carrier testing.

It’s easy to see that this Galaxy S3 is pretty long, which might confirm a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display with 16:9 aspect ration. The very thin bezel reminds us of the edge to edge Galaxy S III concept that never saw the light of day.

As a bonus, you should know that Samsung’s vice president officially confirmed yesterday that the terminal codenamed GT-I9300 is Samsung Galaxy S 3, dismissing the rumors saying that the South Korea-based company will unveil Galaxy S II Plus on May 3rd.

The round edges of the device reminded me of Galaxy Nexus, Google’s developer smartphone manufactured my Samsung. GNex, as Android enthusiasts like to call it, was introduced in October 2011 and was world’s first smartphone to come pre-loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
