Samsung Galaxy S III is still penned for an announcement "in the first half of the year”
And so continues the saga, you know, the one that circles around the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III. Previously, it was alluded a few days ago that the handset would be launching in April, but over the weekend, that rumor was quickly squashed as Samsung quickly cleared up things and dispelling the allegations. Well folks, so where do we go from here?

Although we’re back to square one, Samsung did let out some details surrounding its next flagship. In fact, they specifically say that the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S II will “be unveiled in the first half of the year.” So there you have it folks, we can still dream about this handset all we want until then, but remember, it’s simply going to be unveiled – whereas, its actual release date will come later on.

Then again, with spring right around the corner, it’s possible that we can see an unveiling sometime soon, while commercial availability could potentially happen even before June. Interestingly enough, Samsung doesn’t explicitly refer to the successor to the Galaxy S II as the Galaxy S III, so it simply makes us wonder if it’ll bear a totally different name – as opposed to following the usual routine.

Nevertheless, one thing is certain, it’ll no doubt pack some dreamy hardware specs that’ll push the limits in the smartphone landscape. As much as we’d love to see this bad boy announced well before June, we have to keep in mind the worst outcome of it being unveiled at the literal tail end of June.
