Samsung Galaxy S3 spotted in ‘secret’ case

It seems Samsung is trying to steal HTC’s ‘leakiest manufacturer’ crown as another Galaxy S3 ‘photo’ has been unveiled.

However, at first glance this might surprise you – the phone looks very similar to the original Galaxy S2. Don’t fret though – there are a number of rumours floating around that Samsung is just disguising the S3 in case leaks like this happen.

And if you take another look at the photo you can see a more curved device nestling inside – could this be the real Galaxy S3?

Forward thinking

Samsung Galaxy S3 release date, news and rumours

Sam Mobile, which was sent the picture by an anonymous tipster, believes the Galaxy S3 will come with the model name of the GT-i9300 – although the (more likely) number of GT-i9800 was also mentioned.

The S3 will also come with a 12MP camera, according to the tipster – we’re not sure that would be particularly necessary given most phones are taking excellent snaps with an 8MP option, but would be the kind of headline spec Samsung has loved in the past.

Protect the princess!

More Galaxy S3 news has surfaced today in the shape of a screen protector that’s reportedly based on the dimensions of the Galaxy S3, courtesy of Unwired Hong Kong.

It’s been shown on a number of devices, hinting that the new phone is indeed curved, has an elongated home button and will come with a screen in the 4.7-4.9-inch screen size range.

Of course, this could just be wishful thinking on the part of a particularly over-zealous accessories manufacturer that has seen too many ‘leaks’ – but if correct would mean the Galaxy S3 is quite a departure from the Galaxy S2.

What do you think? Is the rounded device in this year, after the popularity of the curved HTC One X? Are you excited to see the S3 soon? Let us know in the comments below.
