Samsung’s showing at the Mobile World Congress event held in Barcelona, earlier this year was rather bleak in comparison to the one by HTC. The company took to the stage and launched the One X, a quad-core monster, which has pretty much changed the game as far as smartphones go. At the event, Samsung was expected to steal the limelight by announcing their highly anticipated successor to the Galaxy S II; the Galaxy S III. However, prior to the event they stated that the device would be unveiled at a later date. Since then there have been numerous leaks regarding the specifications that the handset may possess. The biggest rumours surrounding the handset, however, are the ones speculating its appearance. An image had surfaced earlier, which appears to be an official press shot of the product displaying a white smartphone, along with the date May 22nd. However, one cannot say for certain if this is what the Galaxy S III will actually look like or if it rather is a tastefully made render by an enthused Samsung fan. The doubt regarding the Samsung Galaxy S III appears to have been lifted, albeit by a bit as a developer has provided a Polish website, OPDA a live image of what the person claims to be the Galaxy S III.

The image provided to the site shows the face of the smartphone sans the display, which is somewhat censored. However, from the image we can tell that it features the home button and a five column user interface, which is found on the Galaxy Nexus. There had been reports in the past that Samsung would be ditching the physical home button as it was not really required with the functionality of Ice Cream Sandwich. The operating software is expected to come with the device upon launch. Apart from that, the image shows us the front facing camera, however as of yet, we do not know at what resolution it will fire.

Here is a look at what the Samsung Galaxy S III is expected to feature:

  • Quad-core processor and on chip LTE
  • 4.8-inch AMOLED Plus Display with 16:9 Aspect ratio and an HD resolution (possibly 720p but could be higher)
  • 3G, Wi-Fi with DLNA and Wi-Fi Direct (Possibly)
  • 12 megapixel camera
  • Wireless charging
  • MHL for AV out
