Samsung Galaxy S III to keep Home button: report

Physical button remains.

As its rumoured release date draws ever nearer, more information is slipping out regarding Samsung's forthcoming flagship phone, the Galaxy S III.

The latest whisperings – from South Korean newspaper Korean Digital Daily report Samsung has opted to retain a physical Home button on the phone – despite the fact that it will come packing the button-free Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

If the scuttlebutt is true, it's particularly odd given that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus – the first Ice Cream Sandwich phone – did away with physical buttons altogether.

Korean Digital Daily also reckons that the Galaxy S III will use the five-column icon layout employed by the Samsung Galaxy Note, rather than the four-column layout seen on the Galaxy S II.

Whether or not it's packing a Home button, we're looking forward to a Galaxy S III featuring a quad-core processor, a huge 4.8in HD screen, ceramic body – and possibly even wireless charging.
