Samsung confirms no MWC 2012 press conference

Update: Samsung confirms it will not host a press conference during the upcoming MWC 2012

Samsung has confirmed that it will not host a press conference during this year's Mobile World Congress claiming it never intended to do so

Having confirmed that it will not unveil the eagerly awaited Galaxy S3 handset at MWC 2012 later this month; Samsung has now revealed it will not host a press conference at the Barcelona based show either.

Announcing in recent weeks that the Samsung Galaxy S3 release had been pushed back to beyond MWC, Samsung previously stated that it "is looking forward to introducing and demonstrating exciting new mobile products at Mobile World Congress 2012."

Samsung MWC 2012 Press Conference

Contrary to these claims, Samsung has now revealed that it will forgo the standard MWC press conference telling T3 that it will not host a formal announcements during this year’s show.

“Re. the Samsung conference at MWC, I have just been told that Samsung are not having one this year,” an official Samsung spokesperson has told T3. They added: “It was never cancelled, it wasn’t actually something Samsung planned to do this year.”

As well as the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung was originally expected to unveil a pair of new Android tablets. Tipped to come running the company's new Exynos processor, the announcement was rumoured to bring life to the repeatedly Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Rumours

Whilst nothing is yet confirmed a number of recent leaked reports have suggested the Samsung Galaxy S3 will land with a minimalist 7mm form factor as well as a bevy of high-end specs including a 4.65-inch rendition of the company’s now trademark HD Super AMOLED display with a stunning 1280 x 720p resolution.

Other expected Samsung Galaxy S3 specs that have been doing the rounds ahead of the handset’s unveiling include 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a hefty 12-megapixel rear-mounted camera with the now customary 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities. A 2GHz dual-core processor has also been tipped for inclusion.

Much like the current Motorola RAZR, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of a number of handsets rumoured to be adding a nano tech coating in the form of the recently unveiled Liquipel that will see the device able to withstand the odd toilet drop or drink spill.

Would the omission of a Samsung press conference leave a gaping whole in the MWC 2012 lineup? Share your thoughts on the matter via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
