Hot on the heels of news that the T-Mobile Galaxy S II's Android 4.0 update is near, some more Samsung Galaxy goodness has made its way online. The folks at The Verge have gotten hold of some renders purportedly showing off a T-Mobile-branded Samsung Galaxy S III in both blue and white. The most interesting aspect of the leaked images? The T-Mobile Galaxy S III looks like it may be retaining the physical home key, along with the rest of the look and feel, found on the international model. Typically when an international Samsung device with a home button makes its way to the U.S., it loses its physical button and gains a set of four capacitive keys, as can be seen with the U.S. Galaxy S II variants and the AT&T Galaxy Note.

Unfortunately for T-Mobile customers eagerly anticipating the arrival of their Galaxy S III variant, The Verge has no new availability details to share. A previous rumor suggested that the blue model may be launching as soon as June 20 with the white model to follow on July 11, though, so it may not be long before what you see on your computer screen today will be in your pocket. What do you all make of these T-Mobile Galaxy S III renders? Do you like the fact that they feature the physical button and overall design of the international model or do you wish that the T-Mobile version would feature some customizations, like a set of capacitive keys?
