Yesterday was the day tipsters had decided to reveal whatever they knew about the upcoming flagship handset from Samsung. First the device was spotted on Samsung Kies database which revealed the smartphone’s official name as the Galaxy S3 and a mini thumbnail image giving those interested a glimpse of what it would look like. A little later on, the device made its second appearance of the day when a sketch of the handset surfaced in what is believed to be the handset’s service manual. Along with the render of the device, there was also a list of specifications available for the world’s viewing pleasure which literally foretells everything that will be featured in the device. It seems the leaks had not stopped and mobile website, PhoneArena had received an image which their sources claim is the Galaxy S3.

Is this the real deal?

Is this the real deal?

What is interesting about the leaked image is that it has a lot of resemblance to the image portrayed in the service manual. However, one cannot be for certain if this handset is a prototype or if it is the real deal that we will see in a few short days. To quote the report, “There is evidently a physical home key, as rumored, and two capacitive buttons, while the whole setup resembles a lot the render from the leaked early manual of a Samsung GT-I9300 Galaxy S3 that we saw yesterday. The side bezel of what seems to be quite a big display is pretty thin, but we'll leave the speculations on screen size aside, as we can't vouch whether this is the real deal anyway.” The screen size is expected to be between 4.6 to 4.8-inches and by merely looking at this image one cannot confirm the same. However, if the earlier image of the service manual is anything to go by, then we can expect this handset to feature a display size of 4.8-inches.

The handset will be announced on the 3rd of May 2012, so those gearing up for the unveiling, can hit the link here and download the Samsung Unpacked Mobile 2012 app for Android and stream the event live as it unfolds. To read about all the rumours of the Galaxy S3, click here.
