Samsung Galaxy S3 Photo Samples Appear

With only a few days left for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3, test photos taken with four different models of the device have emerged online.

The pictures have apparently been taken inside a cubicle in Korea by what looks like a female employee of Samsung Electronics (there's a picture of her and her handbag can be seen in another picture) and were leaked by Pocketnow.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to gauge the quality of the test photos adequately. The four US-bound smartphones are the SGH-I747 for AT&T, the SCH-I535 for Verizon, the SGH-T999 for T-Mobile and the SPH-L710 for Sprint.

It is likely that T-Mobile and AT&T will get the Galaxy S3 first because they will use the GSM versions of the Galaxy S3 - which will be available in the UK on the 30th of May.

On the hand, the other mobile phone operators use CDMA and as such may require additional tweaks before launch. The Galaxy S3 was unveiled nearly three of weeks ago and is widely regarded as the main rival to the iPhone 4S/iPhone 5.

It comes with a quad core Exynos 4212 processor clocked at 1.4GHz, with 1GB RAM, 16GB on-board storage, a microSD card slot, a 4.8in 1,280 x 720 pixels capacitive touchscreen, an eight megapixel camera and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.

You can read the two face-offs we've already published between that phone and the Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy Note.
