Now that Samsung has come out and say that the Galaxy S III won’t appear at Mobile World Congress, that opens up speculation and rumor regarding the actual release date. According to industry insider Eldar Murtazin, the Samsung Galaxy S III will launch in April. Mobile World Congress takes place February 27th through March 1st, so that would mean Samsung was pushing the newest Galaxy out just one month. Also, an announcement doesn’t necessarily mean a release date. As we’ve seen with the Galaxy S II, you can expect carrier release dates throughout the year, so don’t be surprised if we see more of the same with the Galaxy S III.
As for specification, this new Galaxy S III will feature TouchWhiz on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Expectations are that it will include a quad-core Exynos processor, Super AMOLED Plus 720p display, 4G LTE support, and 2GB of RAM. Murtazin reportedly has a good track record, but with any rumors of this sort, we suggest a few grains of salt.
