Another week, another round of Samsung Galaxy S3 speculation and rumour to be considered. And with MWC over for another year, the rumour mill will surely be going into overdrive once more.
Samsung had a strong performance at Mobile World Congress last week, giving us some very decent-looking devices.
We had the Galaxy Beam – a nifty little smartphone that comes with its own built-in projector, capable of projecting a 50-inch image on to any flat surface.
And we had not one but two new tablets to feast our eyes on. One was the (pretty disappointing) Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 – an update to the original Galaxy Tab, but without any noticeable improvements.
Then there was the far more impressive Galaxy Note 10.1 – a tablet-sized version of the popular Note smartphone that was released last year.
But now that MWC is over, we’re turning our attention back to Samsung’s most exciting upcoming device – the Galaxy S3.
Even at MWC, with manufacturers unveiling all kinds of amazing products, there was still talk of this long-awaited handset. But what are the latest rumours about the S3?
April launch for Galaxy S3?
According to ZDNet Korea, Samsung is gearing up for an April launch – with London and the UK one of the initial launch markets.
An advertising and marketing blitz is reported to be in preparation, which will focus on this year’s Olympic Games, of which Samsung is an official partner.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Twitter launch?
But the April release date rumour appears to have hit a bit of a snag, as the Twitter account @samsungtomorrow claimed the April date is untrue.
Not only this, but the Twitter account also suggested that the final launch date be confirmed via the social network.
Samsung Galaxy S3 leak
We can’t decide whether a leak of the Galaxy S3’s proposed specs was timed to keep the hype up in the face of MWC, or was just a happy coincidence.
Either way, the latest specs leak pretty much confirmed what we already knew – that the S3 is going to be amazing. With a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, and a full HD 1080p display, this is going to be the smartphone to beat this year.
