Samsung GT-i9300 likely not the Galaxy S III, might launch in May
Remember that mysterious Samsung GT-i9300 smartphone, photos of which were sent to us not long ago? Rumor has it that the said model number has been reserved for the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III, but the device in the images looked nothing like a flagship smartphone. And that is because it likely is not, as the rumor mill now suggests.

It is speculated that the Samsung GT-i9300 will actually launch as the Samsung Galaxy M (Not to be confused with the Samsung Galaxy M Pro). And considering the company's current smartphone naming scheme, we might be actually dealing with a mid-range device here, not a flagship smartphone. Furthermore, the same sources claim that the Samsung Galaxy M is scheduled for a mid-May launch.

But as the case is with any rumor, especially the ones with no evidence to back them up, we would recommend taking all this with a dose of disbelief. On the other hand, if the rumor is on the right track, an official announcement of the said Galaxy M smartphone, or whatever the GT-i9300 ends up being called, might come sooner than later.

No offence to you ScottSchneider but there are plenty of other news and information that PA uploads a lot faster than GSMA or any other site for that matter........ Take any new event for example......whenever a new product gets announced check how GSMA handles it and what happens here at PA

@Wendy where the hell did you read that there will be no S3 this year? on topic, how many Samsung mid-rangers do we have? this is getting ridiculous, I seriously doubt Samsung will support all of those devices.
