New Samsung Galaxy S3 design – but not for the UK

That’s right – the Galaxy S3 isn’t even out and there’s already a different version for South Koreans

The Samsung Galaxy S3 – which we just crowned the king of Android phones in our Galaxy S3 review – has got a new look. But you'll only be able to get it in Samsung's home country, South Korea.

As you can see from this snap leaked by MobilePhoneBlog (via ElectricPig) the new shape looks a lot more like the Galaxy S II, with straighter lines and arguably a more premium design. And the reasoning behind stripping the South Korean Galaxy S3 of its curves? This 4G LTE version of the S3 won’t work with the Exynos quad-core processor, so the new model is dual-core only – and Sammy thought that while it was changing things, it might as well redesign the beauty.

We prefer the UK version, to be honest – but what do you think? Let us know on Twitter. And in the meantime revel in the power of the S3’s battery that manages double the battery life of its next-best-rival the HTC One X.
