Latest Samsung Galaxy S III photo still looks fake

Another day, another purported Galaxy S III photo. We've been tipped with this convincing shot of the upcoming Samsung superphone, which follows the bullet points of the latest rumors. There's reason to doubt, though: the phone in question is presented a little too perfectly for our jaded blogger eyes to believe. In any case, we should find out what the real thing looks like in less than a week when Samsung reveals the Galaxy S III at its London event on May 3rd.

Play it again: another Galaxy S III photo pops up

I'd like to say right away that we're reporting this one primarily for entertainment value. As seems to happen more days than not, yet another photo claiming to be the oh-so-elusive Samsung Galaxy S III has appeared on the Internet, this time courtesy of Polish website OPDA. That's what it claims to be, but what it looks like is a Galaxy Note with some custom software and a little Photoshop trickery. Inspect the appropriately low-res photo below to decide for yourself.

Samsung Galaxy S III in the wild – but under disguise

We've heard multiple reports and rumors about the supposed specs of the Samsung Galaxy S III for months on end now. With multiple "leaks" and images also hitting the web we've still never seen anything too convincing. It's been said to have already reached some carriers for testing in Korea, but that is about all we know. What we do know though, is Samsung has done a great job keeping things a mystery with the Galaxy S III.

Chinese “Android” store sells iPhones too

Hardly a week goes by without the tech world spotting a humorous fake piece of electronic detritus coming out of China's seedier factories, and these days it's usually running Android. (Hooray for open source!) But at least one Chinese retailer has decided to go all out and copy Android for their entire storefront. It's not necessarily "fake" in the sense that the branding is misappropriated; anyone selling Android hardware can make use of Google's Android logos and typefaces. But simply naming your store "Android", as the shop in Zhuhai, Guangdong province has done, is a no-no.

Galaxy S III rumors run wild – reports claim announcement coming Thursday

Here is another announcement we can surely throw in the rumor bin almost instantly. While the Samsung Galaxy S III has been a hot topic as of late, with plenty of rumors and leaks, we are now hearing some more chatter that Samsung might unveil it during their annual Samsung Africa Forum show at the end of this week after all. Possibly on Thursday or Friday. Do notice this is the same March 22nd event we've heard will NOT be the big unveiling.

Samsung Galaxy S III press image leaks again – looks fake

The Samsung Galaxy S III is coming. Yay! I'm just as excited about this phone as the next Android enthusiast but that is about where it ends. Until we get any official details or leaks all these fake renders are just pointless. Most likely the next Galaxy S III will look something similar to what we see below, but after a quick closer look you can obviously spot the faults of this Photoshop job.

New Samsung Mobile World Congress press photo is almost certainly fake

There's a rumored press photo for a shiny new Samsung smartphone making the rounds this morning. We caught a glimpse of it on Eldar Murtazin's Twitter page, where the poster claims that it's a leaked press photo for a new device set to launch at Mobile World Congress later this month in Barcelona. Based on the software displayed and the Ice Cream Sandwich-style buttons (which are still capacitive) it looks like Samsung's first ICS phone following the Galaxy Nexus. But something's rotten in Denmark, dear readers: to be blunt, this looks like an absolute fake.

JXD tablet S7100 just begs for an Apple, Sony and Microsoft lawsuit all at once

There's a lot of litigation flying through the air over various Android devices, but if Hong Kong-based manufacturer JXD comes anywhere near the US, there'll be a lot more. Its latest device manages to ape the iPhone and PSP, and manages to infringe on intellectual property from Nintendo, Sega, Microsoft and probably a few independent Android developers for good measure. The website for the JXD S7100 doesn't so much "think different" as "think people won't notice a hodgepodge of triple-A consumer electronics have been ripped off all at once".

I can’t believe it’s not PlayStation: Chinese Android PMP rips off the PSP

Android gaming is looking up, especially if you've been keeping up on Google's 10 Billion Apps promotion. But it's still pretty hard to find an Android device with a quality gaming-focused form factor, with the notable exception of the XPERIA Play. If you're comfortable with handing over money to a fly-by-night Chinese company with... "inspired" design choices, you may be able to get your hands on this here PlayStation Portable look-alike, filled to the brim with gaming goodies.
