Samsung Galaxy S3: where and when will it be launched?

Another week, another onslaught of Galaxy S3 speculation, rumours and very heated debate. We (sort of) know the specs to expect; the debate this week is about when and where.

Last week, a new model number appeared on Samsung’s UAE Global Download Centre website. The model number GT-I9300 has appeared on the website’s smartphone menu.

It may not sound like much, but it has sent the rumour mill into a spin. This is because the Galaxy S and the Galaxy S2 both appeared on the download website bearing a similar model number.

It is an exciting revelation, not least because it means we aren’t all going crazy – there really will be a Galaxy S3 at some point. There was always going to be, but we were worried for a minute there.

So with that in mind, we decided to take stock of the time-and-place rumours circulating the Galaxy S3 at the moment.

Where will the Samsung Galaxy S3 be released?

The addition to the Samsung download site could suggest that the tech giant has its next smartphone ready and waiting.

And with Mobile World Congress, one of the biggest events in the tech calendar, just around the corner, what better place to show off a state-of-the-art smartphone?

But reports are now suggesting that Samsung has decided to hold off on the launch for a while longer, in order to reduce the gap between launch and a US release.

When will the Samsung Galaxy S3 be released?

Even though Samsung launched the Galaxy S2 at MWC last year, it seems it may use this year’s event to display a Galaxy Tab or other quad-core devices.

Instead, there have been rumours that we’ll see a launch to tie-in with the London Olympics. Samsung is an official partner of the London 2012 Games, so what better time to unveil its most anticipated smartphone?
