The Samsung Galaxy S III
leak train continues yet again this week as the boys from PhoneArena received a photo claiming to be the Samsung GT-i9300. Given that the GT-i9100 is the Samsung Galaxy S II and the GT-i9250 is the Galaxy Nexus, it does make sense that the GT-i9300 could be the Galaxy S III.
The image itself does have certain traits that line up with the Galaxy S series along with a buttonless front and on-screen navigational key strip. TouchWiz is definitely in full-effect along with Samsung’s Music and Video Hubs, the S Memo, S Planner and S Suggest apps.
A bigger surprise is the Samsung logo being moved underneath the display, which is a noticeable difference between this leaked device and earlier models in the international Galaxy line. Thus far, only US models had the Samsung logo below the screen as carrier branding would go on top.
Considering we have seen previously leaked images for the Samsung GT-i9500 and GT-i9800, it’s hard to pinpoint the i9300 as the Galaxy S III. Also of note is the difference between this image and the other Galaxy S III renders we’ve seen pop up over the last few days. Someone just tell Samsung to announce this thing already!
