Are We Finally Seeing Real-Deal Images Of The Galaxy S III In The Wild?

Is this it? Is this real? Are we finally seeing real-deal images of the Galaxy S III in the wild? According to Gizmodo Brazil, we’re looking at two “exclusive” Galaxy S III photos showing a “thinner, yet heavier” Galaxy S III model.

We’re noticing a 12 megapixel and according to Gizmodo Brazil, the device  sports a Samsung GT-i9300 model number. Their source is “quite confident” that this is the Galaxy S III and that’s about all we can glean from these images. Unfortunately, we’re still left wanting for any and all Galaxy S III information and while the official announcement is just 2 weeks away, we want to know now!

What do you think of the look?

    looks interesting, holy crap that’s a lot of smudging and fingerprints!

    They could have at least cleaned it to make it look nice for the photo.  Maybe they were just that rushed to take the photo….

    • Jerzeeloon

      Samsung already confirmed that’s a bogus photo and that no photos of the s3 final design have been leaked.stop speculating the real thing will debute in less then 2 weeks

  • Johntajacobs

    Thats a huge phone ! Cabt wait until the official announcement

  • I definitely think it’s a real Samsung device, I’m not quite sure it’s the Galaxy S III.  

  • Toni_g817

    Make it the size of the galaxy note and ill get 2!!! No more little phones!!! We need note size!!!

  • Deadeye37

    Whatever.  That looks totally like a photoshop mockup.  Just heavily apply the fingerprint filter….

  • MG

    It looks kinda ugly….

  • shysox

    he/she took the picture with an iphone.. lol 

    • i think it was iPad actually lol

    • spear0209

      Doesn’t matter, with Samsung’s update history, even the gs3 will be out of date in a year. I wouldn’t buy it.

  • Nik

    That is one UGLY phone. I have the first 2 galaxy series phones, but if this is it I will probably not get it even if the specs are beastly. Samsung needs to understand design and build quality are just as important, especially to the general consumer who are not spec oriented. That is why alongside Apple, Nokia and the recent One X are doing well.

    • MarcusDW

      The One X might be my favorite phone design right now.

      I hope this is just the test unit body…

    • Iucidium

      With the One X, battery life was replaced with shiny.

  • Realife428

    Only thing that has been keeping me from going to Samsung is how flimsy they feel. If this one has some weight to it. I’m in…

    • JBLmobileG1

      I agree 100%. If they go for the more heavier and solid feeling look… not the cheap plastic feel… I may give Samsung a whirl and give up my HTC… but only if it meets or exceeds my expectations.

    • h_f_m

      I’ll take the nice rigid plastic any day. All my metal HTC phones have always gotten creaky and feel way too heavy for what they are. I’ll take plastic that can take some abuse and still feels solid. Both my Nexus S and Gnex have awesome feel and durability.

      I will say the nexus one was nice, but it felt a little slippery to hold.

  • Bleacherbums1

    That would be the sg2 with some minor updates….lol

  • xmiro

    great, as if I didn’t rub my phone into my shirt enough already to get fingerprints off

  • Cory

    I don’t understand tmobile will sell it for that price go get it at Walmart if you’re complaining about it. They are generally $50.00-$100.00 cheaper on an upgrade or new activation than in-store. Htc one S is not for everyone but let’s not compare it to another company every phone comes out.

  • Justin

    Probably an Apple insider taking a picture so Apple can sue Samsung for some more pointless things.

  • 19fonzy

    Maybe a redesigned Sprint/Verizon Galaxy Note (journal) ?

  • carl444

    this could b the real deal i love the design notsure about the front bottom bezel

  • whiteiphoneproblems

    Why not take a decent shot? Why not turn the screen on? So many questions..

  • Craig0

    Read The Verge. Basically Samsung are going security crazy over the S3 (if it’s called that) and have sent a number of fake boxes out to carriers. This is one of the fakes, but apparently bares some similarity to the real thing.

  • MarcusDW

    I think it looks like a tablet and is bland as all hell. Thankfully, T-Mobile will give us a more attractive variant.

  • okay, I’m sold.  This is just like the other photo, and it very well might just be it. When can I order Sammy?  Take my money, please!

  • J35

    I like the HTC one better, its more sophisticated.

    • StarMenace

      I agree, both the One X and One S look quite a bit better.

    • WirelessRefugee

       Not sure what your definition of “more sophisticated” is, but if you are referring to looks, I would never buy a phone simply because one looks better than the other.

      If you meant sophisticated as “ahead in development; complex or intricate” I beg to differ, the HTC One will be the least sophisticated phone debuting in 2012.

      While I like some aspects of the HTC One, deal breakers for me are the fact that the battery is not user replaceable, and there’s no external storage.  Not sure what HTC is thinking, this reminds me of the Touch Pro2 debut in 2009, where the T-Mobile version had a USB audio port instead of the common 3.5 mm port.

      In regards to the battery, since I am wireless only in my residence, batteries don’t power the phone for all that long, and because batteries eventually wear out and fail (typically right after the warranty expires) , I would never buy a superphone with a sealed battery. One example where I need additional batteries is when on the road and it is common sense to take two to three fully charged extended batteries in the event of an emergency, especially when the battery cannot be charged with the 12v accessory plug. (Recall the CNET editor James Kim tragedy in Oregon, where his cell phone battery ran out of power. Swapping batteries may have saved the guy’s life.)

      Second, there’s no microSD slot. The usable memory on the phone is all you get. I am way too used to swapping 16 and 32 GB microSD chips, so much so I can’t imagine buying a superphone in 2012 with 2009 specs and technology.

    • deeoh1084

      IMO most HTC phones look alike… when they make a new model
      they look pretty similar to previous ones.. it’s just my opinion i’m not
      bashing HTC or anything (i own HTC Sensation 4G) i’m not saying 
      they look bad either i’m just saying their design is getting boring
      that’s all 

  • Sfsdaf

    Why not wipe your fingerprints off the next time you take a photo?

    SMH -_-

  • mreveryphone

    I thought the bezel was supposed to be smaller? That looks bigger to me.

  • Deaconclgi

    Still lacks a Xenon flash….. :(

  • AndrewSingleton

    its gross.

  • Fray26

    Wow… That just came out of Bill Gates ass… 

  • Ahh Right 2384

    Who cut their screen shield? Did they forget the phone is square not a oval. LOL

    • Valkyrie21z

      it was probably cut for the nexus.

    • Justin

      I’m REALLY HOPING that this is fake… HOPING! That is friggen UGLY.

  • TejaPeela

    clearly fake. the reflection of the hand is only on the screen protector and not on the entire screen.

  • Armaghan

    Has anyone else noticed the Apple logo reflection in the first image?
    Looks like “the insider” is taking a picture from an IPad.. may be an Apple employee?

    • in2android

      Good eye… I see it now, definately taken from an iPad.

      • It’s much more likely they simply have an iPad and are using that to take pictures.

    Question: did Sammy ever launch am SG2 HD with better display?

    • MarcusDW

      No phone with with a SuperAMOLED HD Plus screen has been put out yet.  If that’s what you mean by better display.

      HD PenTile Matrix but no HD RGB.

      • Bleacherbums1

        Hmmmmm maybe just maybe that cnet crave UK might be on to something here…
        There’s an article on there website (cnet UK) that it might not be the SG3 but an SG2 with some minor updates and upgrades .

  • Johnny Brown

    First off, as a person that is sort of OCD when it comes to getting fingerprints off my phones and tables, I gotta say all those fingerprints on this is DRIVING ME BAT-S*** CRAZY! It makes it more unattractive than it is… It’s like someone doing a phone video blog with dirty fingernails… UGGGH!

    …Now that I am calm, I’m not sure how I feel about the design… It’s quite possible that it’s a dummy unit with SG3 guts. Whatever the case. This is the phone I’m holding out for.. so hopefully the underwhelming look of the device in this state gets a little makeover before hitting TMO

  • Johntajacobs

    Bell Canada just posted the Galaxy S II HD LTE to their website and.thsts what this looks like

  • Brent

    thats not the gs3, its am s2 variant, and its a test device, notice the unfinished bezel

  • Bleacherbums1
