Is Samsung going to announce the Galaxy S III on May 2nd?

Look, starting rumors isn’t something I particularly enjoy doing since at the end of the day it doesn’t matter if you have press images and a spec sheet of a device that you can’t buy, but I’m going to make an exception for this “hunch”. Samsung’s Galaxy S III is easily one of the most anticipated mobile phones for 2012. There is so much misinformation floating around about it right now that it’s impossible to paint a picture of what we can expect to see. Will it have a 4.65 inch 720p non-PenTile display or will it have a 4.8 inch 1080p display? Will it have a dual core processor or a quad core processor? Will it be made out of ceramic or plastic? The list goes on and on. Today there was a tweet from Eldar Murtazin, Editor in Chief of Mobile-Review, that simply said: “I’m going to be in London, May 2 :)”. So I asked Eldar, does that mean that the Galaxy S III will be announced on May 2nd? His reply: :-).

Now this doesn’t really mean anything, but it can. For all I know, Eldar could be just messing with me, yet something makes me want to believe him. The Samsung Galaxy S II launched in Europe in May 2011. So why not celebrate the one year anniversary with the launch of the Galaxy S III? The 2012 Summer Olympic Games kick off on July 27th, so you want some time for the adverting campaign to sink into people’s heads.

The key things I’m looking forward to is what sort of new Samsung components are going to be shoved into the Galaxy S III. What new image sensors, displays, processors, RAM chips, and memory chips have Samsung been baking up in their research and development labs?

Three weeks isn’t that far off, but this wait is painful!

    This wait is simply killing me. I’ve been about to buy the SGNote, but I guess I’ll regret if the SGS3 comes out right after I buy it…

    You’d think Sammy would want to announce an event soon. The GS3 is a rare phone in that people would actually but off upgrading their current set (if they’re at the end of their contract) to see what samsung has in store. 

  • It is amazing to find out that people readily upgrade their  devices in-spite of high prices but at the end the user experience is enhanced and the money is worth the expenditure and the cycle continues. The Galaxy SII is a hot favorite and there is no replacement to this device. The right contender would be the enhanced version of itself and here is the device waiting to be unveiled.
