A photo of what is being called a prototype dummy of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has leaked onto the internet this week.
The internal code for this device is the I9300, which is what is now being identified as the next Galaxy device, or successor to the Galaxy S2.
The smartphone in the picture is camouflaged by being placed within a case, but some key aspects of the device can still be viewed while looking at the photo.
The arrangement of the buttons appears to be different as there is now a Menu button on the smartphone as well as a Back, Home and multitasking button. Samsung has also changed the order of the keys running them in the opposite way of how it did on the Galaxy Nexus.
The casing used to disguise the next Galaxy resembles a Samsung Galaxy S2.
The Korean electronics giant sent out an invite to the event last week called "Come and meet the next Galaxy," where the company will inform the public on just what that is.
This event, now being called Mobile Unpacked in the new ad, is set to take place on May 5 in London, England.
Samsung is also rumored to be unveiling the next-generation Galaxy Tab at the event as well.
The company recently stated that the Galaxy S3 launch and unveiling will take place close together. This means Galaxy fans should be able to get their hands on the smartphone sometime next month.
Rumored specifications for the Galaxy S3 include a 4.6-inch display at 720 x 1184 without on-screen buttons or 720 x 1280 resolution including the on-screen buttons with 320 DPI, a quad-core 1.4GHZ processor running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich smoothly, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD slot.
