Samsung has revealed the lengths it went to in order to keep the Samsung Galaxy S3 a mystery revealing it produced three 'final' handset designs

 

In the wake of the recent Samsung Galaxy S3 release, the Korean handset manufacturer has revealed it had three ‘final’ designs of its Android 4.0 powerhouse in a bid to avoid leaks.

Shrouding the handset in mystery prior to its formal unveiling last month, Samsung has confirmed that in a bid to quell show-stealing leaks it produced a trio of ‘final’ model handsets, all with unique designs so as to keep the device’s true identity as closely guarded secret as possible.

Making the revelation via the official Samsung Unpacked blog, the Apple and Motorola rival stated that “there were three different prototypes to avoid any design leaks. All were made like final products.” An unnamed company spokesperson added: "This meant making three totally different, continuously changing models in the same time frame. Engineers had to repeat the same process for all three types."

Shedding some light on the flurry of varying ‘leaked’ images that preceded the handset’s formal introduction into the realms of reality, Engineer ByungJoon Lee has said the team responsible for the device were not allowed to share S3 concept drawings with colleagues instead having to describe the design intricacies with words.

Fellow Samsung Senior Engineer BeoungSun Lee described the process of paranoid security as “quite tiring and frustrating.”

With the Samsung Galaxy S3 UK release date seeing the S2 following on hit store shelves in recent weeks, the quad-core, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich filled smartphone is already lining up to take the honour of smartphone of the year.

With the hefty 1.4GHz quad-core processor combining with 1GB of RAM to set the device apart as a true powerhouse of the smartphone scene, a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED with a gorgeous 1280 x 720p resolution and 306ppi image density ensure stunning visuals.

Lining up at just 8.6mm thick and 133g in weight, the Samsung Galaxy S3 hits lofty heights on all fronts with an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera playing host to 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities.
