iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Fake Samsung Galaxy S3 With Curved Screen Surface

Pictures that could well be of a rendered mockup of the Samsung Galaxy S3, have emerged on a Chinese website called XDA.

The three pictures show a smartphone that has a curved screen, not unlike an opened book with three physical buttons (including a play/pause one).

The article mentions the fact that the S3 may have a quad core Exynos processor, 2GB RAM, a 1280x720 pixel resolution spread on a Super AMOLED Plus 3D display with a 4.6-inch diagonal, a 12-megapixel camera and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (of course).

There is a big gap between the bottom edge of the screen and where the buttons are located, which is indeed strange.

Apart from the fact that getting 3D to run on a curved surface is not straight forward, it appears unlikely that Samsung will break away from the current rectangular designs to deliver such a revolutionary form factor.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
