Samsung keeps everyone on edge when it comes to Samsung Galaxy S III
posted by Alan F. / Apr 21, 2012, 9:10 PM
With everyone on edge waiting for the expected May 3rd introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Denmark has raised the anticipation level a bit by putting up a new image on its Facebook page. The picture shows a blue fabric covering up a phone (which we can see the outline of) while a date and time is printed over the fabric. The date shows May 3rd 2012, which we already expected to be the date that the Samsung Galaxy S III would be introduced for all the world to see. The time refers to 8pm local time in Denmark. Heck, there might even be a tablet announced the very same day. But we digress. What everyone cares about is the device hidden underneath that blue cover.
Can we glean anything-anything at all by looking at the silhouette and shape of the blue cover? If you look hard, you might be able to see curved glass and the rounded corners similar to the design of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. And who knows for sure if that is a Samsung Galaxy S III or just a placeholder being covered up? It would have been a lot easier had a Samsung employee dropped a prototype of the Galaxy S III on a bar floor somewhere before the Korean based manufacturer locked down the device.

OH MY GOD. JUST REVEAL IT ALREADY >:O My upgrade is December 1st! I love my Droid Bionic. But I seriously cannot wait to get a new phone!! Verizon better offer both and HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S III! Even though the SGSIII isn't even announced yet, it's mostly between those two. However my pervious Thunderbolt was very bug ridden. And I can't stop salivating all over my friend's SGSII. I'm even considering the next iPhone if it's great. I REALLY REALLY WANT TO SEE THIS PHONE.

How are Samsung mobile devices compare to their tv's? Now that mine second tv or actually a computer monitor just stop working I'm a little weary of their products. Sort of the same way about Lg devices also.

if those rounded corners are any indication then this isn't like anything we've seen the Galaxy S III to be. i think i like the more angular Galaxies though. o:

i think rg987 might be right-the + on the blue sheet could be for galaxy s2+ as samsung has already upgraded the original galaxy s specs a few times and as the s2 is still its top seller it would make sense to keep it up with the competition.maybe the vietnamese leaked video is this phone. we could also see the s3 as the true samsung flagship of 2012. http://www.sammobile.com/2012/

depends... when you mean ASAP how fast is that? if your can wait 2 weeks for the announcement then you should do so. if the anouncement comes with US release wait for the S3 otherwise get the EVO LTE or the Nexus, because this phone might arrive US late summer

With the new naming scheme, shouldn't the "Galaxy S II Plus" be called "Galaxy R II" instead? I hoped that Samsung finally understood, that offering 10+ SGS2 variants just blurs the flagship's perception, and they would finally try and cram as many radios as possible into the one SGS3 and offer the same to all operators (similarly to iphone4s). The SGS and SGS2 line is scattered already, why do the same with this?
