And here is another look at a device purported to be the Samsung Galaxy S3 donning a “dummy box” to hide the handset’s final design. A video surfaced last week showing a similarly disguised device, but the one pictured here differs in more than one way. For starters, a singular physical button can be found positioned below the phone’s screen. Likely standing in for a ‘home’ key, its efforts are duplicated in the row of Android 4.0 software navigation keys. Not only is the redundant ‘home’ option there, but Samsung appears to have added an additional key for menu functions while shuffling the arrangement of the ‘back’ and ‘multitask’ keys. This arrangement was not seen in previous leaks.
The presence of additional software keys echoes renders spotted alongside Galaxy S3 accessories for sale at Amazon.com, though the overall look of the nav buttons differs and the final handset design is at odds with the device we see pictured above. It looks like we’ll be hanging on util the last possible second before we get a clear look at the GS3′s design.
