Render of the Galaxy S3 – Suggests May Release?

A user on social news website, Reddit uploaded what is claimed to be a press image of the (upcoming?) Samsung Galaxy S3, suggesting at a May 22 unveiling at the Samsung Unpacked event in London.

This isn’t the first time the device was suggested to hit in conjunction with the 2012 Olympics in London, so perhaps this supposed press image holds a few ounces of truth. Samsung earlier stated that its intention is to announce the Galaxy S III at a “separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product,” Android and Me pointed out. If so, the puzzle pieces look to be falling in line.

In addition, according to Android and Me, PR firm Weber Shandwick has been responsible for Samsung work in the past, “including their press conference at CES 2010.” The Verge, however, highlights the picture’s inconsistencies: “On the front view, there’s a thin, almost imperceptible white border running along the bottom and up the side of the device, a detail that doesn’t appear present on the side view of the phone,” The Verge said. “The volume rocker also appears to straddle the white and black halves of the device, while the power and camera buttons on the side view are clearly embedded in the white half only.”

About Web Ninja

I am an avid web designer and technology compelled me into journalism. My career started out with a blog about how to hack your Windows PC, but it developed into my love for Apple (which is now nonexistent). Before I was introduced to Android I was an Apple fanboy, I loved anything apple, iPhones, iPods, Macs, etc. Then, I was in Best Buy with a friend and he was buying a phone... An Android phone running Cupcake (1.6). He wasn't the techiest friend a guy could have, but he still loved technology. Now, this was a new phone at the time and of course, he had to get it. I thought the phone was going to be a ripoff of an iPhone but, soon I realized that it had potential. That's how my Android love developed. I currently own a Samsung Galaxy S2 from Sprint as well as an HTC Thunderbolt for Verizon.
