Samsung president speaks out on Galaxy S 3 plans

Next-gen Galaxy S handset to touch down next year

Samsung plans to launch a third generation of its Samsung Galaxy S handset in 2012, the company’s president of mobile communications has revealed.

Having officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S II at Mobile World Congress back in February, Samsung’s J.K. Shin, President of the company’s Mobile Communications Division has announced the Apple rival is currently working on the handset’s follow-up.

“Samsung may launch a third version of its Galaxy S smartphone in the first half of next year after launching a second-generation version called Galaxy S II last month,” said J.K. Shin.

Having sold more than 10 million units of the original Samsung Galaxy S handset last year, Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy S II earlier this month sporting a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities and a super slim form factor. Early reports from Samsung have revealed the Galaxy S II has shifted more than 1.3 million units in its opening month.
