Samsung Galaxy S developers must have been bewildered when they heard the news of their latest unreleased product pictures unveiled on Gizmodo Brazil official site. The officials had previously announced the phone to be launched in mid-summer during the first week of May, which is speculated to be later branded as the official smartphone of the London Olympics 2012.
Going by the latest pictures, we are thoroughly disappointed since the authority had promised a major overhaul, but by the looks of it, it seems nothing but an incremental update. However this news may turn out to be nothing but a rumor and expose the failed attempt at a cheap gimmick. Already GSM Arena is contesting the legitimacy of the picture, claiming that the serial number displayed on the phone (Samsung GT-I 9300) is that of the Galaxy M. But recent Samsung strategies leave room for speculation. The company has allowed employees to take the phone outside the company premises as procedure for using it as ‘generic test boxes’. But in the recent turn of events, Verge has announced that the model is indeed a fake and is similar to that of one of those dummy text boxes and is far from the real Galaxy S III.
The model picture of the Galaxy S III sports a 12 megapixel camera and looks thinner, but at the same time looks heavier still. A major difference that we spotted was the absence of the physical home button, which is run on Android ICS 4.0 .3.
