Despite Samsung having previously hit out at rumours of a potential April Samsung Galaxy S3 release date, a number of new reports have once again suggested the Korean tech giant is planning to out its next-generation flagship handset next month.
With the rumour mill once again reverting to an April Samsung Galaxy S3 launch event ahead of handset’s official release date later in the year, new reports have claimed Samsung is planning to officially unveil its third-generation leading Android handset in the coming weeks.
The latest in a long line of Sasmung Galaxy S3 rumours, reports over the weekend suggested that the Android 4.0 handset will land in April, taking yet another leaf out of Apple’s book and launching just days after being officially unveiled.
A glaring omission from the recent MWC 2012 conference in Barcelona, Samsung recently refuted claims of an April Galaxy S3 unveiling the Galaxy S2 manufacturer issued a statement suggesting the S3 will not land until later in the year.
"Please note, some reports regarding a press release for Galaxy S3 are not true. Once a specific launch date is decided we will notify you via Twitter first," an official spokesperson for the company said.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Specs
Far from the first time the third-generation Galaxy S handset has had its claimed specs splashed across the web, the latest rumours, which came courtesy of gadget blog Boy Genius Report, suggested the iPhone 4S rival will land with a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor and Google’s latest mobile operating system, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Further marking the Samsung Galaxy S3 out as the leader of the smartphone market, the latest reports have suggested the handset will boast a 4.8-inch display with a stunning Full HD 1080p resolution and a film friendly 16:9 aspect ratio.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Release Date
Originally widely expected to be the showpiece of MWC 2012, Samsung confirmed earlier this month that it would hold off the Samsung Galaxy S3 release until later in the year.
“The successor to the GALAXY S II smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product,” an official spokesperson for the Korean tech giant announced.
Since Samsung’s disappointing revelation, the Galaxy S3 launch has become a thing of much speculation with latest reports suggesting Samsung will out its new flagship handset in April.
