Well, what do you know - another Galaxy S III leak! Only this time, it's directly from the source. You see, the Galaxy S III has made an appearing in Samsung's own program used to manage its mobile devices, called Kies.

GS3-3 GS3-4

This basically verifies two bits of information: the device name and model number. There have been rumors that Samsung may call it something different and make it more of an incremental upgrade to the S II, but unless there's a change of heart between now and the release, it looks like it's officially going to be called the GSIII.

Aside from that, it's clear the GT-I9300 is, in fact, the model number for the SIII. Again, there have been rumors that the I9300 is a different device altogether.

What this doesn't show us, however, is what the device looks like. While the images may be tiny, it's pretty obvious that the device in the GSIII's slot is the Galaxy Note - so it's clearly a placeholder. It's not that big of a deal though; we should have all the details we can eat about this device in a little over a week.

    Good, when this comes out I intend to print out another "I" and stick it to the back of my phone to feel like one of the cool kids

    These "leaks" are probably the best strategy out there for marketing products to power users. It makes you wonder how many of these are legitimately leaks and not publicity stunts. I'll admit, though, that it's got me a bit excited. Especially after HTC's disappointing flagship showing.

      If you are disappointed with HTC's flagship offerings expect to be disappointed no May 3rd. If the (convincing) video leaks are correct it isn't any more powerful. In fact the opposite (if anything).

    But is it the SGS 3 or the SGS III? Hmm.

    Actually it looks like there are two variants of the SIII

    The GT-I9300 and the GT-I9300T

      This is quite possible - T-Mobile's Nexus S is i9020t, for example.

        The original  code for the Galaxy S for Latinamerica was GT-I9000T.

    March 3....Galaxy S 3....Connect the dots!!!

    To me it seems to be S3 instead of 'SIII' the article is talking about. To be honest, S3 would indeed be better. That would be easier to differentiate from SII than SIII. EyeEye vs TripleEye...

    If not A15 5212 and mali t604 i won't be buying. Simple.
    Better stick to my old nokia than to pay a *^% lot of money for something that would eat dirt in 3-4 months.

      No one gives a fuck on what you want or don't want to buy. You'd be much better off posting this to Samsung than crying it here.

      Eat dirt? What exactly are you planning on doing with it - run a spaceship?
