Samsung to reveal "the next galaxy" May 3 in London, Galaxy S III launch?
Samsung has started sending out invitations for a May 3 event in London that is cryptically entitled "Come and meet the next Galaxy". That's just 17 days from now and we know the thoughts on everyone's mind - "Galaxy S III cometh!"

We sure hope so, and if Samsung really does reveal its next Android flagship then, we'd say it has managed to be on par with Apple in building excitement and secrecy around its leading phone annual edition launch.

Ok, we know you want to start dissecting the news and speculating whether the picture represents ceramic pebbles, hinting at the rumored glass ceramic chassis, whether it represent drops of liquid, hinting at the alleged waterproof housing, is it both or is it just an artsy background, but we'll leave it all to your imagination.

So given the announcement on May 3. How much longer after that will we see a release? I guess this might have better specs then Htc one x. Tough decision to make.

Thank god... I almost bought a Galaxy Nexus yesterday... Although, I doubt this is going to come to Verizon =(. Regardless, I won't use my upgrade now until I'm positive

I don't believe in coincidence, that picture MUST be a hint. It's like the jelly beans jar at the Samsung (or Google?) boot during the mobile congress.

breath of fresh air... isn't it? see how nice it is to have everyone focus their comments on the main article topic instead of bullying and out of 63 comments no bickering about iphone vs android... you guys are just as sheepy as iphone users lol look at the comments... but to give credit where its due... this phone is gonna be BEAST tho!

I hope and pray that it hits the states with the exynos processor as well as the 2500 mh battery like the note....c'mon Sammy blow my mind......

Amen to that! If it doesn't come with the exynos processor it's not near as amazing. Exynos = win qualcomm = fail.

My friend works in samsung r&d..he said on may 3..we may see Note 2 and Refreshed note 10.1...rather than galaxys3..

98. wendygarett unregistered

I hate to say this but in Korea... May 3 is written as 5.3 as a date... Probably Samsung is trying to say there will be 5.3inches screen device that day...

I really hope sammy improve the touchwiz without sacrificing performance. Give something that can rival sense 4.0. This is the voice of the "99%" casual user.

Hasn't anybody come accross to the question that maybe Samsung will announce the Samsung i9300 (a.k.a. the Olympic Phone) on May 3rd and they will announce the Galaxy S III on May 22nd? I hope not, but just saying...

That could be a possibility but i wonder if they'll be announcing them both, maybe at the same time? that would be nice.

It'll be in August right before the iPhone is set to launch. They want to beat apple to it.
