Samsung Galaxy S III Launch Event Scheduled For April?

According to a short report published today, Samsung will be unveiling the successor to the wildly popular Galaxy S II device – the Galaxy S III – in April. Details after the jump!

The news comes from Boy Genius Report – a blog dedicated to covering the latest and greatest consumer electronics – in the form of a short post based on “industry insider” Eldar Murtazin’s tweet in which he says that the Galaxy S III will be revealed in April.


From BGR:

Samsung may launch the successor to its wildly popular Galaxy S II smartphone this coming April according to a new claim […] industry insider Eldar Murtazin noted on Thursday that he believes the Galaxy S III will launch in April.

BGR notes that Murtazin has a strong, proven track record, so this claim can be taken seriously. Besides this, Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S III will not be announced by the end of this month at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Instead, a separate event will be held closer to the device’s commercial availability. Murtazin’s claimed date of April, then, makes sense.

We have no concrete information on this yet, but keeping in mind the present trends, it is safe to say that the Galaxy S III will come with a quad-core Exynos chip and a 720p Super AMOLED HD display. Besides this, expect a 8MP+ camera, 1GB+ RAM and 4G connectivity wherever available.*

Galaxy S II

We talked about the reportedly “leaked” press shot of the Samsung Galaxy S II Plus (GT-i9300) which is expected to be unveiled officially at MWC. It is going to be, as you can guess from its name, based on the Galaxy S II and will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich preinstalled.

While there won’t be a flagship smartphone announcement from Samsung at MWC, the company will unveil other mobile products. Plenty of other mobile companies will be there as well, and Redmond Pie will be covering the events’ proceedings as they happen, so stay tuned!

*If I have one complaint against the smartphones of today, it’s the horrible battery life. Hopefully Samsung will follow Motorola’s footsteps in including a 3300mAh battery in the RAZR MAXX to ensure that the phone lasts more than 12-15 hours.
