Samsung Galaxy S3: fancy a closer look?

Samsung Galaxy S3: fancy a closer look?It's Samsung Galaxy S3 rumour time – the launch must surely be getting close, as they're coming thick and fast now.

A Dutch blog has released a better-quality version of the supposed S3 press image we saw leaked from China yesterday, and thrown in confirmation of many of the headline specs too for good measure.

The latest image comes from Dutch site GSM Helpdesk, and is broadly similar – though not identical – to the design that came our way from Korea the other day.

Now that we've got a closer look we'd have to say it's looking increasingly plausible. It looks good but not too good, and we can't see too much for Apple's lawyers to object to either, which surely must be a concern.

As for the specs, the site has either done its homework on previous leaks, or the leaks were largely on the money, as the specs quoted have a familiar feel to them: a 4.7in 720p Super AMOLED Plus HD display, quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 64GB of storage, a 12MP camera with 1080p video recording, and an 8mm waistline.

One piece of info not covered is whether it's a Samsung Exynos processor or one of Intel's Tegra 3 chips, but consensus elsewhere is pointing to the former.

There's also nothing on the all-important launch date. We're still hoping for April, which is just 10 days away now, though the calendar on the image itself points to May 22 – two whole months away. Boo.

Hands up: does anyone actually like that kind of clutter on their homescreens?
Total turn-off. No offence, but it'll take a while to recover from the visual onslaught. So I have no comment regarding the article ;)

Intel's Tegra 3?

My hand is firmly down...I use LauncherPro+ on all my Android phones, it's just so much faster, smoother and less cluttered. You also get to keep useful features, such as the TouchWiz camera and music player, whilst having the speed advantages of stock Android, win, win IMO.

As for the Article, this is yet another fake. Read this:

New, secret chip being developed ;).

It has 4 sides and a screen, therefore Apple will claim it copies an iphone.

Anyhoo... is that the actual phone? Or is that just another mock-up?

The bottom of the phone has turned into the HTC One series so I agree, this is rubbish.

Just another fake. It's a Frankenstein, made up from parts of other devices. See the link I posted for details.

Ah... Thank g*d - coz that IS one ugly device

Frankenstein's monster wasn't pretty, either.
