Another Day, Another Phone Claiming to be the Galaxy SIII

Well, what do you guys think? This picture is floating all over the interwebs today as the latest Galaxy SIII “leak.” It certainly looks fake. The top Samsung logo and edge of screen seem to be bleeding together in one bad Photoshop job. And why would anyone make the clock orange, but leave the rest of the notification bar icons ICS blue? What’s with the elongated home button? Doesn’t it really just look like a Galaxy SII variant that has been smeared to appear slightly different? Another valiant effort, I guess.

    Its so fake…….. It………. Just……….. Might………. Be…………..

  • Trevor

    I like that it has the same screen resolution as a Game and Watch.

  • NemaCystX

    I highly doubt Samsung would make the SIII look like the Galaxy Note.  There already seeking new designs for the Galaxy Note 10 so it doesn’t look like the Tab 2 10.1

    Not to mention new ones that were leaked this morning “Espresso” tablets

    Look at how bad the top of the edge is around the ear piece isn’t straight, nor is the icons that are pixelated on the screen, its a cut and paste job from the looks of it

    after havin the gnex,well 4 of them. i’m not sure I would ever want another samsung phone,more trouble than they are worth

  • Higher_Ground

    When I was in Vietnam this past winter I saw so many fake iphones and fake galaxy phones it was really almost pathetic.  The worst, by far, was the “SAWSNUG” branding on a fake “SAMSUNG” phone!

  • LjHeMan80

    Please stop posting these pics. Who cares. When they officially announce it we will know.

  • Unbelievable…… Check this out and click home  ===> http://myurl.in/NIieL

  • MattSweeden

    exactly its so obvious. person didnt even try to make convincing

  • bassman418

    Its a Galaxy Note………

  • If you want a powerful phone with amazing specs and gorgeous screen, wait for the GSIII.

    If you want all that AND sexy, get the HTC One X.


  • MattSweeden

    LOL fail photoshop. look at the blue line that goes across the top under app and widget text. Notice how on the left its closet to the top than the right? the person couldnt even angle the image.

  • Kyle Cummings

    The Samsung branding is crooked. nice try troooooolllll…

  • kidtronic

    Why would anyone give this the time of day? 

  • PC_Tool

    No.  That is not the S3.  That is an ugly piece of crap.

    So glad I could help you with that.

    Any other questions?

  • So much info on the Galaxy SIII but no news on the Droid Fighter which was to come out before the S3.

  • ddevito

    for a minute there I thought I typed in bgr.com instead of droid-life.com


  • Magnus Eriksson

    Hilarious! My god that’s an ugly ass fake pic

  • Bionicman

    it looks ‘shoped

  • TooBigToFit

    Button kinda looks like it came off of the Galaxy SII HD.

  • frankandsimple

    nope.. Apple is not a saint.. but in general.. their products are a infinitely more polished than what others churn out. Google had the opportunity to do what you are saying with their Nexus devices.. but the quality of GNex is laughable.. and not to mention how they botched up the launch in their very own backyard and ended up releasing their flagship product in a foreign country first.

  • shdowman

    slow news day?? lol


  • Cam

     The corners are not even. The speaker is shifted down and to the right. Fake. Fake. Fake.

  • MotoRulz

    I’d hardly call this a valiant effort.. more like a half ass effort..

    • Jonny

      quarter ass at best….

      • Lactose_the_Intolerant

        Best I can do is an eighth.

  • robocop

    Verizon galaxy journal…end of discussion

  • Butters619

    If this is the GS3, I am glad I’ll be picking up the One X in 2 weeks.

  • The lines aren’t even parallel between the UI and body case. Why would you bother posting this crap and wasting our time?

    • Butters619

      Hahahaha! I didn’t even notice that until you pointed it out.

    • kretz7

      Forget parallel, the lines aren’t even straight. I like the black hump that touches the bottom of Samsung.

    • Jacob121791

      Its not the UI that isn’t lined up with the case it is the Pixels. When the maker of the pic Pixelated the icons the pixels were perfectly upright however the phone is tilted slightly so it gives the illusion that the icons don’t match up to the case when in fact they might (not saying they do just).

      I still think its fake though.

      • Butters619

        Look at the black square that represents the ‘screen’.  That isn’t parallel to the case edge.

    • MyStillRemains

       You quite literally took the words out of my mouth. A lot of tech sites have been posting this even though its clearly a fake. Why would they even consider posting this?

  • PigHeaded

    If this is the real deal….next!

  • frankandsimple

    Assuming the picture is real, once again Android and the companies that churn out android, fail to follow simple ergonomics in their design. This phone is probably super sized…(judging by the 5 column app layout), and yet look at where the soft menu button is! top right corner… so you’ll have absolutely no chance of working this phone with one hand.

    This is where Apple wins hands down.. attention to detail.. They even thought about putting the camera app icon (by default).. on the top right of the screen.. so that when you use the camera button (volume+ button).. you can easily open the camera app by touching with your thumb conveniently..

    This is the primary difference between Google and Apple. One is about churning out something as fast as they can without paying any attention to experience or aesthetics.. the other will NOT follow the most popular trend out there just because they can.
    /end troll

    • Designing a phone which permitted the user to easily short signal quality by touching the lower left edge of the phone sure does scream quality control.

      • frankandsimple

        Agreed! A serious lapse in design that was! But lack of Quality Control is kind of different than attention to minor details.

    • MotoRulz

      You sure wasted a lot of time attacking the design of a fake rendering of a phone..

      • frankandsimple

        The rendering may be fake.. but don’t be too sure about discarding the point I made. In fact, if I am not mistaken.. the menu button IS already there on the top right corner on many apps.

    • Butters619

      Assuming the picture is real.

      …well you know what assuming does.  Although seems like you’re the only ass this time.

  • Iny

    Horribly Photoshoped. Why does this keep making its rounds on Android blogs? 

  • Rebelbanker

    Is this the Minecraft version?

    • They’ve added trolls to minecraft apparently.

      • Rebelbanker

        Aww… Come on! Just a little fun 🙂

        • I mean, the person who claims it is, he’s a troll.

    • lmao i was thinking that too lol

  • It’sASamsung

    Isn’t that just 
    http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s_ii_hd_lte-pictures-4198.php with photoshopped Galaxy Note ICS screen?

  • eessel

    This is SO fake!!!! I don’t even know why people decided to even take a second glance at it lol

  • Michael Forte

    Looks fake to me.

  • I think it doesn’t look like a Droid branded Smartphone.

  • TheFirstUniverseKing

    It looks really photoshopped. And I’m not just saying that because of the pixelation censor.

  • Seriously… it’s a galaxy S 2 with a stretched home button and screenshot isn’t even aligned properly, my attempt was way better lol 

    • Guest

      You’re a graphic designer and that’s the best you could do? LOL.

      • Well i was just trying to show it takes no effort to fake a Samsung Galaxy S3 lol, if i were to really put effort into it, it would look real 

        • Guest

          Okay, good. I was really hoping you had only spent like 5 seconds on it.

    • kretz7

      No, my attempt was way better.

      • EC8CH

        Your sir, are the winnar
