Samsung Galaxy S III to launch in April?

Samsung Galaxy S III to launch in April?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.

It's not "Maeli" Business News: It's Maeil (Korean for every day or daily) . But I suppose that's just being pedantic.

I'm just impressed that Lewis managed to make any sense out of that link at all :p

Not pedantic at all. Corrected, sir :)

Amusingly, it's impossible to distinguish between a lower case 'i' and 'l' on my screen. Good spot!

Which screen is that?

MacBook Pro. It's quite apparent on my phone, though it's obviously significantly closer to my face.

I'm looking at it on a 13" MacBook Pro now and yes, it is actually hard to tell the difference. When I go into Boot Camp, Windows XP, it's easier to tell the difference, but text in general doesn't look as nice. Go figure.
