Samsung Galaxy S III allegedly confirmed for April launch
posted by Victor H. / Mar 02, 2012, 9:04 AM
Aside from the next-gen iPhone, the Samsung Galaxy S III is certainly the most anticipated device of this whole year. Samsung’s 2012 flagship has now allegedly been confirmed to launch as early as April, soon after its official announcement which is yet to come. ZDNet Korea reports about the launch date after it spoke with Cheil Worldwide, Samsung’s marketing and ad agency, which is preparing the device for the market in the UK.
Now, it looks like ZDNet refers to the official arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S III to shelves in April, at least in the first markets of availability. We’re not yet clear about when the device will arrive stateside, but we expect it to be later on in the year.
The latest rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S III say it will feature a huge 4.8-inch display with a stunning 1080p resolution. It’s expected to be powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz Samsung Exynos processor, an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 2-megapixel shooter up front. Of course, it will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and feature LTE. Design will also evolve with neat ceramic casing.

- Display 4.8" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.9 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 4 Quad, Quad-core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh(11.60h 3G talk time)

Now we wait to see if the carriers and Samsung have figured it out to have a WORLDWIDE launch in April as opposed to everywhere but USA in April and USA in freaking October.

Sammy boy, I just got my Note barely two months ago, and you think you have what it takes to lure me into buying this!? Dammit it, with a 1080p quad (and fingers crossed - smaller bezel), you'd have me... again!

even armor has chinks. the strength of a material is dependent on the type of load particularly the angle of incidence. what are the compressive, tensile, torsional and shear strength values? why is ceramic normally considered brittle? what happens to a ceramic-backed phone when it is impacted along its edge?

I certainly hope so! If they skip the GS3 for "something better", I think I might have to jump ship. And if they get it, they better not dumb it down like they did the Fascinate!

Im with you there man. Not all of these Droid branded phones are what they are cut out to be. AT&T already got the htc one x exclusively... What a disappointment it would be if they got this too.
