Samsung Galaxy S III allegedly confirmed for April launch

Samsung Galaxy S III allegedly confirmed for April launch
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.

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.

That and the US versions will be horribly dumbed down and full of bloatware

It looks good. Hope it won't have the reception/connection issues like the Galaxy Nexus does.

Also hope the battery can last all day long and be removable.

What reception/connection issues??? You must be confusing the Gnex with the iPhone 4.

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!


Posts: 701; Member since: Jun 07, 2011

If only it would keep those specs when it comes to U.S carriers.. 1080p !! that would be amazing!! Def looks like it will be the best phone of the year! again!

ceramic is very strong. they make armor out of the stuff. :) It will definitely be interesting compared to the plastics n tins of the phone world. GIMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE!!

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?

Probably just sprayed onto high quality plastic or aluminium. It's not gonna be ceramic per se.

if samsung shrinks the bezels like on the pic above it should not be much bigger than a 4.3 inch screen phone

Hope Verizon gets their head out of their ass and offer the S3.

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.

Did not. They got.the "XL" which is the crap dragon version Supposedly T-Mobile is getting the international quad core version as well as the 1s.

Hope AT&T does't decide to dumb this one down like the One X.

This will kill most Quad core phones out there. I just cant wait for it.
