The official word is still that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S III “in the first half of 2012”, and most rumours of late – including a rather convincing leaked image – have been pointing to May.
However, we’re now hearing semi-officially that the planned May launch might be brought forward to April. Do it! Do it! Do it!
The news comes via Maeil Business News, which cites – no, not an anonymous source, but – Samsung Greater China President, Kim Young-Ha. Apparently the revised timescale was mentioned during a press conference. Interesting.
Samsung reduced the mobile world to tears at the beginning of February, when it revealed that it wouldn’t bring the Samsung Galaxy S III to Mobile World Congress.
It’s still not entirely clear if the Samsung Galaxy S III simply wasn’t ready, or if Sammo wanted to close the gap between launch and release.
Rumoured Samsung Galaxy S III specs are still all over the place. Depending who you ask, it’ll have a display somewhere in the 4.6-4.8in region, with an 8-12MP camera, probably NFC for contactless payments, a quad-core Exynos processor, and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).
Move your butt, Samsung, or I’m grabbing an HTC One X.
