Samsung Galaxy S3 Pics Emerge On Chinese Forum

What looks like the picture of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has emerged on a Chinese forum called and has since been removed. Fortunately, Slashgear has copied the pictures before they went AWOL.

The phone appears to have four context-aware capacitive buttons plus a physical home button with what looks an array of sensors on each side. The phone is not unlike the one in the video leaked by Vietnamese website Tinhte a few days ago.

It also shows a Twonky Server cloud-based app with a counter showing the number of videos, photos and music tracks stored. The handset has what looks like a massive rocker button on the left and a dedicated photo button on the right hand side.

The phone - which has yet to be named - will be unveiled at an event next week in London as part of one of Samsung's Mobile Unpacked event. The phone has already been confirmed, as the Next Galaxy, by Vodafone and O2.

The obvious rival to the Galaxy S3 is the Apple iPhone 4S. But consumers will possibly compare it to the likes of the HTC One X, the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Gamsung Galaxy Note.
