Samsung Galaxy S III leak

There have been a number of purported Samsung Galaxy S III renders that've shown up in the past, but so far they've mostly been a tad unconvincing. Today yet another Galaxy S III image has made its way online, and although it's highly possible that this too is a fake, it looks more believable that the leaked shots that have come before it. The image popped up over on Reddit with no explanation or other details attached and shows a white handset with a silver border similar to the one found on the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 2. There's also a home button on the bottom of the device's face, power/lock and camera keys on the side and what looks to be a protrusion on the back for the camera.

Over in the lower right corner of the image, there's a "Weber Shandwick" logo, which belongs to a PR firm called Weber Shandwick that Android and Me says has worked with Samsung in the past. Another bit of information in the shot that's worth mentioning is the little calendar widget on the device's screen. It shows May 22nd and invites the user to "Watch a Live Broadcast of the Galaxy S III Unpacked Event" in London". Additionally, the weather widget at the top of the screen shows the forecast for London, suggesting that that could be the locale for this supposed Galaxy S III event.

So is this the real deal? Only folks that've seen the real Galaxy S III know for sure. There are a number of features on the device in this image that could be present on the actual GSIII, including a thin profile and the small bezel on the sides of the screen. Considering how many fan-made mock-ups that can appear leading up to the arrival of a hotly anticipated device like the Galaxy S III, though, there's also a good chance that this image is simply the product of a regular Joe with some time to spare. We'll be sure to pass along any information about the actual Galaxy S III when we get it, but until then, go ahead and hop on down to the comments section below and leave your thoughts about this leaked shot.
