Recent rumors and updates about the Samsung Galaxy S II successor made millions anxious about the handset. Samsung was rumored to launch Galaxy S III smartphone at the Mobile World Congress 2012 starting 26 February in Barcelona, Spain. Now Samsung confirmed in an official statement sent to Tech Radar that the Galaxy S II successor will be launched at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of this year.
Usually, Samsung launches its flag-ship products at the Samsung Unpacked event a day prior the annual Mobile World Congress event. This year apparently the company plans to host a separate event to launch its flagship smartphone – Galaxy S III. This flagship smartphone is assumed to have a large Super AMOLED HD plus touchscreen with native 720p HD resolution support. Besides that, the phone specifications are speculated to include a 12 megapixel camera and also a powerful quad-core processor.
Samsung has other plans and stated in an official statement: “Samsung is looking forward to introducing and demonstrating exciting new mobile products at Mobile World Congress 2012. The successor to the Galaxy S2 smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product. Samsung stays committed to providing the best possible mobile experiences for customers around the world.”
So obviously we can expect to see some other product launch by Samsung at the Mobile World Congress 2012. Most likely it will be a high resolution display supporting Galaxy Tab in order to compete with the purported Apple iPad 3 tablet. However, take this with a pinch of salt and wait for the Mobile World Congress to start on 26 Feburary.
