Samsung Galaxy S III purportedly seen minus disguise

updated 08:35 am EDT, Fri April 27, 2012

Galaxy S III may be curved, narrow-bezel

The Samsung Galaxy S III may have had its final form uncovered based on a rumor Friday. The shot forwarded to Phone Arena would show a device that would still have hardware home, menu, and back buttons, but with a display roughly as large as on the Galaxy Nexus. It would possibly have a very narrow bezel as well as a metal border.

The shot is very much unconfirmed and could be a fake, either generated from an existing phone or generated from scratch. Earlier test devices were using on-screen navigation buttons and not the physical kind. However, the trim is rare if non-existent on past smartphones, and the side buttons are both unique and line up with Samsung's tatest. The power button is just visible near the top right of the phone, where Samsung often prefers to put the key on its larger phones.

The Korean company is believed to be using fake shells to mask the real look, much like Apple has in the past.

Samsung has already either confirmed or given strong clues as to how the Galaxy S III will turn out, including possibly confirming the name as well as the Exynos 4 Quad processor. The authenticity of the photo and full details will come at a planned London event on May 3.
