Contrary to the wishful thinking of many, Samsung confirmed it will not introduce the Galaxy S III smartphone at its March 22nd event in France.
The vendor announced plans to hold a special event yesterday and it immediately sparked rumors for an unveiling of the Galaxy S II successor. Instead, a spokesperson for Samsung told The Next Web that the event will just be a regular day of talking about the company’s current line of products. How fun.
Last week, Samsung also shot down rumors of a Galaxy S III debut at Mobile World Congress 2012, which officially begins in Barcelona on February 27th. A representative responded to those rumors saying, “The successor to the Galaxy SII smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product.”
So there’s no Galaxy S III at MWC or at the French event. Maybe the third time’s a charm?
This rumored device is anticipated to be the king of all Android phones so far. Think only 7mm thin, 2GB of RAM, a Super AMOLED Plus display, an 8MP camera on the back and a 2MP shooter on the front, and of course Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Alas, this dream will not become a reality any time soon.
