What, you thought that official invitation to see “The Next Galaxy” would be the end of the speculation? Hardly. BGR quotes an anonymous source (for what it’s worth) saying that the Samsung Galaxy S III will be getting multiple launch events in London, New York City, Seoul and Dubai. The source says that the main event will be in London to commemorate the Galaxy S III as the official smartphone of the 2012 Summer Olympics, something we’d heard before. The source also claims that it’ll come in a blue/black color scheme as well as white, with 16GB and 64GB models.
Other “leaked” specs vary in their believability. A Quad-core Exynos processor seems likely (especially after Meizu’s similar announcement) as does a 4G LTE connection. A 1080p screen, on the other hand, is just downright unbelievable. While certainly technically possible, that kind of density on a screen smaller than 10 inches is so much overkill that it borders on the insane. An international rollout – hopefully including the United States and its bickering carriers – is planned.
Of course this is all chasing after the wind. While the device that’ll be shown on May 3rd at Samsung’s press event will almost certainly be the much-rumored Galaxy S III, there’s very little verified information to be had even at this late stage. The two specifications that do seem very likely are a quad-core Exynos processor and a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED HD+ screen (720p, not 1080p), because they’ve come from Samsung themselves and a source that’s associated with them professionally. Put your money down, folks – on May 3rd, all bets are off.
