Samsung Galaxy S III to sport a 4.8 inch screen?

Fear not dear readers, the launch of the Galaxy S III is only 4 days away, and finally the rumours will stop. Until then though, expect the excitement to reach fever pitch for what is beyond doubt the most hotly anticipated Android phone of all time. I seem to be reporting a lot of leaks, rumours and would be exclusives and it looks like today is no different.

The good folks over at Know Your Mobile received the above image, proclaiming to be the Galaxy S III, from an anonymous tipster. What perhaps makes this latest leak a little more interesting than some of the others is that the phone is pictured measured up against a ruler showing that the device measures 130mm and the screen 4.8 inches. The design of the phone in this image looks like a cross between the Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy S II, not necessarily a bad thing I hasten to add! Aside from the visible hardware home button, there’s not much else can be taken from the still.

The good news is that there’s only a few more days of drama before the next Galaxy is finally revealed to the world. Perhaps we’ll have the first “official” leak of the Galaxy S 4 by the following weekend!

    I have to say I love my 4.5 inch Epic 4G Touch and am SOOO looking forward to the Galaxy S3, but I think that 4.8 inches may be my limit. I’m not sure how comfortable a 5 inch or larger phone will be in my hand or in my pocket.

      The hTC EVO 4G LTE will be a better device!

        Why do  you say that? I’m anxious to hear the specs of the Galaxy S3. We don’t know as of yet how it stands up to the EVO 4G. I’m also looking forward to getting 4G LTE in Vegas. I currently have a Verizon Mifi device with LTE, but would like to consolidate for costs. I’ve had a few HTC phones (a Windows Mobile back in the day and the HTC Hero), but I’ve grown attached to the Touch Wiz interface.

          I had hTC windows phones as well at the Hero.. The EVOs with the improved hTC sense have been awesome for me. I will agree that we font have all the specs for the GallaxyIII yet, so maybe not fair for me to assume the new EVO is king yet. Sprints new LTE should improve the EVO experience.

            Looking forward to Motorola razr HD or Fighter! Should dominate the Verizon lineup.

            • Mike

              Doesn’t MOTO have 5 razr devices? Is Moto changing their emphasis on making batteries instead of phones? Try an hTC device & it will make you very very happy!

              Sprint would terminate the Evo series if that meant getting a Razr series of phones.

            • Mike

              I would rather use gallaxy phone than razr blur lol

            • TEKADDIKT

              haven’t had much experience with the blur interface, but most say it’s one of the worst ones out there.

              I totally agree with your opinions!!

            • Mike

              I agree with Scott

              A quad core Galaxy III will be hard to beat!

              Thanks! I figured I’d finally convince you to see it my way.

              The Razr maxx is an awesome phone and huge seller. Htc in turn has had no success on verizon. As impressive as the Htc Rezound is on paper, it has failed to succeed on Verizon.

              Not sure if that would be true. Evo was one of their biggest sellers ever and put them back on the map. They had been trying to find a good flagship phone for years and couldn’t find one until the Evo came along. The Evo Shift and Evo 3D were not as successful. The Motorola phones on Sprint have been lack luster. The Photon was the last one and there were multiple complaints and just wasn’t a good phone.

              Verizon has a good line up and the success of Android can be credited to Verizon with their Droid campaign, but Verizon is way more expensive and have been happy with Sprit for the past decade and their prices are the best of the big 4.

            I agree that LTE will improve the 4G experience on Sprint. Our data speeds are sorely lacking on Sprint. When I got the Epic 4g, I had the option of getting the original Evo, but ratings on the Sprint phone were better (newer device) so I went with it–though loved sense–and haven’t regretted it.

              I actually liked the original EVO more than the EVO 3D. Sprint does have great prices & their customer service is excellent. The new towers will be a big plus. The Gallaxy series are nice.

    I’m contented with my LG phone but then again, the S III’s screen size is just tempting.
