Samsung deciding whether it will introduce Samsung Galaxy S III at MWC

Samsung deciding whether it will introduce Samsung Galaxy S III at MWC
Earlier this week we passed along the speculation that Samsung was planning on not packing the Samsung Galaxy S III for the trip to Barcelona next month. Why would the company hold off on revealing what could be a show stopping device? One theory is that the Korean based manufacturer was not happy with the 7 months that went by between the time the Samsung Galaxy S II was announced  and the time the model launched in the States. Samsung might have felt that 7 months is too long of a gestation period for its U.S. customers to wait, and would rather delay the introduction of the phone. But the rumor that Samsung would hold off displaying the Samsung Galaxy S III at next month's show might have been incorrect. Samsung itself says that it is "reviewing several options when to launch."

Another reason to delay the introduction of the model could be due to the speculation that Samsung is testing two different versions of the phone. One has a dual-core processor under the hood while the other has a quad-core processor doing the heavy lifting. With Samsung currently testing the quad-core Exynos 5250, a possible choice to be powering the Galaxy S III, there could be plenty of truth to this theory.

Hopefully by the start of MWC next month, Samsung will have decided to take the Samsung Galaxy S III on the trip to Barcelona. It might even be bad for the manufacturer not to show it off at MWC. If the phone does not get introduced next month in Barcelona, the rumored specs of the phone will just continue to get more and more impressive until it comes to the point that no matter what Samsung raises the curtain on, it will be a disappointment. Just to prevent that from occurring, the Samsung Galaxy S III should be unwrapped at MWC. Let's hope Samsung sees it that way.
