Samsung Galaxy S3 launch potentially postponed
27 January 2012 - 10:53:11
Samsung may not be officially unveiling its brand new Galaxy S3 superphone at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event next month in Barcelona, according to sources quoted by TheVerge.
The Galaxy S3 is set to be Samsung's flagship Android handset this year, following on from the multi-million selling Galaxy S2, a phone which received near perfect reviews from some journalists.
It was originally thought that Samsung was going to use MWC 2012 as a launch pad for the Galaxy S3, but it has now been delayed for an as yet unknown reason. The good news is that the sources still say that it will be available to buy before the middle of the year.
There is speculation that Samsung is keeping the Galaxy S3 away from the media at MWC 2012 because it wants to cut down on the period between its announcement and its release on the international market.
For many people the wait will be worth it as the smartphone will reportedly feature a 12 megapixel camera, Android 4.0, a quad core processor and a Super AMOLED Plus display with a high definition resolution and up to 4.7 inches of display area across the diagonal.
If the Galaxy S3 is indeed out of the picture for MWC 2012, then fans of Samsung will be wondering what the company has up its sleeve for the event. As well as a new Galaxy Tab device range, it is also apparently planning to introduce at least one new Windows Phone-based handset, although these will probably not make up for the absence of its next world-beating Android device.
Samsung has not yet commented on this speculation, so the Galaxy S3 could still make an appearance in February, but avid fans will have to wait and see.
