Phonearena has been sent this photo from a tipster claiming to be the final design sans generic box that Samsung has been reportedly using to test the internals for the hotly anticipated phone which will be launched next Friday morning our time. The phone in the photo appears to be very similar to the Galaxy Nexus design but with the added Home button and back/menu capacative buttons.

The thin bezel looks to be in keeping with rumours and the familiar home button would be hard to get rid of at this stage with most Galaxy S II customers used to that as sort of a signature part of the Galaxy S series. The capacative buttons are a little perplexing and if this does turn out to be the final design it will be interesting to see how Samsung intends to use them in conjunction with the soft buttons from Ice Cream Sandwich. Anyway, over to you guys what do you think? Photoshopped Galaxy Nexus, still a generic case or is this the Galaxy S 3?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Let’s pretend you photoshop another phone photo. But the edges and buttons don’t quite look real. What will you do? Add a grainy filter or two to try to hide your imperfections.

This is for sure fake, but my question is: Did a Samsung employee somewhere get paid to do this??

I vote yes.

Yes, capacitive and home buttons all lit up with the screen OFF – such attention to detail…!  /logic fail.
My call is that this seems very much a photoshopped GNex with a heavy dose of Noise filter. Samsung Denmark’s facebook teaser indicates non-curved bottom and top frame edges unlike the Nexus, though with similar corner radii. I’m hoping to see the backplate styling of the GS3 more than anything – that should present the design statement Samsung claims which will “stand out from everyone else”…Can’t wait..

Though having a “menu” soft button feels kinda weird to me when google is trying to “eliminate” the need for a menu button and using the action bar.

iv seen wayyy to meany “leak pics” of the S III 
to make a conclusion…the “soft buttons from Ice Cream Sandwich” can be turned off or not installed or something from when i had isc installed on my nexus s it did not have any onscreen buttons i thingy that’s just a 
Galaxy Nexus thingy

The worst camera in my house can’t take photos that bad and grainy.  Therefore, photoshopped.
