Gasp! Do Tech Digest’s eyes deceive? Is this the fabled Samsung Galaxy S III?
Well, to be perfectly honest, we’re not sure yet! But we’ll run through why we think it just might be so.
Popping up in a video that promoted Samsung’s successes during their CES 2012 press conference (posted at the bottom of this post), it’s an as-yet unidentified handset from Sammy.
Now, it could just be a mock-up of course, but what with MWC 2012 just around the corner (the world’s biggest mobile phone trade show) you’d guess that Samsung would have a sequel ready following the success last year of the Galaxy S II.
However, that screen looks a real whopper, more in line with the Galaxy Note’s 5.3 inch screen than the 4.3 inches of Super AMOLED goodness found on the Galaxy S II. But look at the front camera placement – far closer to what you’d find on an S II than on a Note.
But then again, look at that battery indicator! Very un-Android, which would make it unlike the Gingerbread packing S II. So many mysteries! All, thankfully likely to be revealed at next month’s Mobile World Congress conference.
To see why we’re so excited for the Samsung Galaxy S III, check out our glowing review of the S II model.
