Samsung China president pegs Galaxy S III launch for April or May
The Samsung Galaxy S III may after all be coming sooner than expected. Various reports quote Samsung’s Greater China President Kim Young-Ha as saying that the launch of the Galaxy S III will come in April, a month earlier than May which allegedly was the initial plan.
Samsung has already officially denied that its new Android flagship will arrive in April, but the words of the senior Samsung executive say otherwise. Overall, it seems that the plan wasn’t finalized at the time and now the latest details are allegedly clear.
Kim Young-Ha spoke to Chinese media about Samsung’s strategy for the most populous country in the world. The Koreans will step up their efforts in China and aim for an even bigger piece of the Chinese market. The launch of the S III is obviously going to be a big part of that.
Now, so far there’s little we know for sure about the upcoming Galaxy S III. There’s no shortage of rumors and allegedly leaked images, and the majority focus around a quad-core Exynos-chip powered Galaxy S III running on Ice Cream Sandwich. The handset is expected to have a larger display, and ceramic body. The rest is anyone’s guess. It seems certain that the handset will come in the coming months, though, so stay tuned.
