If there’s still any doubt in your mind that Samsung will unveil their latest Galaxy flagship smartphone – the Galaxy S III – on May 3, more hints are hoping to erase those doubts.
Do you remember Samsung’s mistake which we posted about this Wednesday? If that wasn’t enough of a confirmation of the Galaxy S III launch, here are two more details which point that the much-awaited superphone is being launched by Samsung early next month.
One of these came straight from a Samsung executive. According to The Verge, as the Samsung earnings call reporting the company’s performance for the first quarter of 2012 was coming to a close on Thursday, an executive from the South Korean giant dropped the hint. He said: “We are anticipating very strong demand of the Galaxy S III.”
Now that did not say that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S III on May 3. However, it does confirm that the company is naming the smartphone the Galaxy S III. It’s not “the next Galaxy” anymore.
What else would Samsung be launching on May 3? The event planned in London is a major one and would not be fit to be the launch of a minor Galaxy phone. It’s fit to be the flagship phone of the company.
The Galaxy note is not yet that old to have a replacement. The next Nexus phone is not due out until the second half of this year or maybe even the fourth quarter. Only the Galaxy S II successor, which we can now definitely say is the Galaxy S III as per the Samsung executive’s statement, is the only Samsung flagship that’s due for a replacement. Remember that the Galaxy S II was unveiled by Samsung at the Mobile World Congress 2011 more than a year ago.
If that’s not enough, the Galaxy S III (GT-I9300) was spotted on Samsung’s Kies device management software.
Actually, there’s two models which were spotted on Kies. They were the “Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300)” and the “Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300T)”. This adds up if a recent report from Korea Times is true. The report said that the version of the Galaxy S III going to the Americas will feature a Qualcomm S4 chip and not the quad-core Exynos CPU expected for the smartphone. Thus, there will be two models of the Galaxy S III (and possibly more, if you remember what happened to the Galaxy S II for carriers in the U.S.).
