Another Samsung Galaxy S III Dummy Box Pictured Showing Custom Soft Keys

You know what we need? Yes, that’s right. Another Samsung Galaxy S III leak. This time it’s a series of pictures of a GT-i9300 test device in what is most obviously a “dummy box,” meaning the outer casing is just there to provide a housing for the innards, and to not reveal the final design until Samsung’s announcement on May 3rd in London.


These pictures came from Chinese forum Mobile01 and reveal one new detail about the software on the handset. Samsung has tweaked Android 4.0’s soft keys a bit and added a slightly larger menu button that, when present, actually shifts the other buttons over. Not a huge big deal, but it does give us a peek at how TouchWiz on Ice Cream Sandwich is shaping up.

See the pics after the break.
