Samsung officially confirms that the Galaxy S III flagship won't be unveiled at MWC this month
posted by Daniel P. / Feb 01, 2012, 5:43 AM
The timeframe given for said Galaxy S III event is the first half of the year, which can mean anything from right after MWC, to June, a little bit before the phone is available for sale worldwide.
Here is the full statement that will tear the heart of every Android aficionado worldwide, and force them to load up in the patience department:
Thus Samsung's thunder at the MWC might actually be the rumored Galaxy Tab slate with the 2560x1600 screen and blazing fast Exynos processor. We agree that the Galaxy S III deserves a special independent unveiling, that will put the spotlight exclusively on it, we just don't agree on the waiting part.
- Display 4.8" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.9 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 4 Quad, Quad-core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh(11.60h 3G talk time)

I was hoping they unveiled it at MWC. But as long as the U.S. doesn't get there's 6 months later.

Samsung must not show Galaxy SIII in public until it is in store and read to sale. And fix all the bugs and others problems before the customers complains and upset. I wished it is aluminum and very thin 7 mm.

having seen motorola's done it spectacularly well, gone now the days of replacing the battery cover with the ugly bulky bricky one for having a 3500mah in. i'll take battery over thinnes everytime...samsung, as themselves said, should keep that promise of outing their handsets with beautiful designs and longer-lasting battery.

though im dying to see it, i have to agree. many peeps might not remember but when they showed the SGS2 for the first time last year, it wasnt really ready for prime time. im less concerned about the world unveiling than I am about the world (aka, the US lol) launch. It better be a spring/summer launch and not a christmas launch darn it! :)

Is this going to be the quad-core one? I really hope it is. I'm amazed to see how FAST our technology has been advancing in the 21st century. I've become a believer that anything is possible now, even functional jetpacks lol

I dont see why Samsung couldn't use the Apple approach of marketing here, by not talking about it... just to keep the surprise element

So what - EVERYTHING that Apple does is a golden standard now? Maybe Samsung should buy the water flushed at the Cupertino toilets (99.99$ a gallon, refurbished). That should instantly improve the quality of their marketing department.

Samsung is gonna release samsung galaxy s3 with apple iphone 5. So it can challenge apple directly in a one on one fight. Though i am not waiting for it. Cause i like sony/lg.

How do you figure this when the idrone 5 won't be out until Q4? Personally, I kinda like the idea of beatingt them to the punch. Sony has a great design and look, hopefully with the take over of Ericsson they can make a run at the top dogs but as of right now they are mediocre. LG......barely better than RIM! Outside of the Optimus 3d, LG's smartphones have been 10 over par at best. If you ask me, it may be time for Lucky Goldstar to focus their energy back on TV's.
