Samsung Galaxy S III to be revealed during March 22nd event in France?

Samsung Galaxy S III to be revealed during March 22nd event in France?
With all of the recent speculation about what the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S III will be like, almost forgotten was a date when we might actually see the device. With the MWC in Barcelona this month already ruled out by the Korean based manufacturer, it could be that the phone will be revealed at a March 22nd event in France that Samsung is holding.

Invitations for the event have been received by French media, including the FrAndroid web site, which suggests that any announcement at the event will be related to the Android OS. While there is the strong possibility that the event has something to do with the Samsung Galaxy S III, it also could be related to Samsung's Google TV product. The latter device is expected to be the subject of an upcoming private event. Or it even could be an event related to the regional launch of a Samsung product other than the Galaxy S III.

Still, as long as there is a chance that we could see the most eagerly awaited Android model for 2012 during this event, we suggest putting a big circle around March 22nd on your calendar.

Just hope samsung will bring 2gb ram on board instead just 1.5 or anything like. Wih bigger screen should come higher resolution and last thing i like the phone should improve is bigger optical lense for the camera. Not just software update to 12mp or whatever mp she arvertise.

Don't think there would be much to see for now. All yellowish companies are only good in copying. I guess that the korean guys will wait until iPhone 5 release to get some ideas.

how about announcement in march, world-wide rollout starting in may; korea and europe will be one week ahead of the US, with all carriers in the US releasing a few days apart. I can dream!

Haven't had a single screen issue except on the Nexus with a slight yellow tint. Both S2 and Note had perfect screen

What wouldnt surprise me at this point, is if Samsung continued to take a page from apple, wait until Google's yearly event in the late spring/summer, announce the phone and then make it available within a few days for purchase worldwide. Let the rumor momentum build to a boil then throw the phones to the masses like fresh popcorn.

But can they get the US carriers ready in time? A worldwide launch 3 months or more before the next iPhone launch would be the best strategy. There are millions of iPhone contracts that expire this June; that would be the ultimate time to snipe some customers from Apple. But those pesky US carriers want their branding, thus slowing the whole process for the American market.

the original galaxyS was launched in early summer.. so yea, it can be done.. especially If tthey are already able to manufacture the chips. there was an exynos supply issue in the beginning of the sgs2... as well as carrier stupidity.
