Just a note to tell you that the picture that accompanies this story is just a concept rendering and is not an official representation of the Samsung Galaxy S III.

The Samsung Galaxy S III
is on a lot of minds right now. The successor to the wildly successful Samsung Galaxy S II is now expected to launch in April according to industry insider Eldar Murtazin. He also ran through a list of specs that he expects to see on the phone, like a quad-core Exynos processor with each of the cores clocked at 1.5GHz to 1.6GHz, a Super AMOLED 720p display, a 12-megapixel camera and possibly 2GB of RAM. The amount of RAM was something Murtazin has speculated on before, and in his latest foray of tweets he didn't confirm that, so we'd take this with a grain of salt. Murtazin is also looking for 4G LTE connectivity and Android 4.0 to be installed out of the box, which won't be a huge surprise. The device will allegedly be introduced at a special event following this month's MWC in Barcelona, Spain.

Samsung just announced the other day that the Samsung Galaxy S III would stay home during the trip to Barcelona for MWC. The Korean based manufacturer has said that it doesn't want a repeat of  last year when the gap between the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S II at MWC and its launch in the U.S. was seven long months. By waiting to display the phone at a special event, Samsung gets to control the timing of the announcement. And not that we could see this happening, but a presentation at MWC could conceivably get overshadowed by other announcements by other manufacturers.
