Samsung Galaxy Axiom has the looks

The Samsung Galaxy Axiom looks like a smaller, thicker version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 flagship phone, down to the faux-brushed metal finish and the bright metallic accents.

Home button

The home button and the phone's use of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS also tie the Axiom to the Galaxy S3 experience.

Thicker than the GS3

Still within range of an acceptable girth, the Axiom isn't as thin as the GS3, though it's plenty heavy.
