Samsung: “Galaxy S III is NOT coming to Mobile World Congress”

Samsung today confirmed one of the hottest rumors in mobile announcing that they would not be bringing the Galaxy S III to Mobile World Congress.  Taking place later this month in Barcelona, the annual event has been where the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II received their respective official unveiling.

“Samsung is looking forward to introducing and demonstrating exciting new mobile products at Mobile World Congress 2012.  The successor to the Galaxy S2 smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product. Samsung stays committed to providing the best possible mobile experiences for customers around the world.”

The rumors got started some days ago when it was reported that Samsung was going to sit on the Galaxy S III for a bit in order to tighten up release schedules.  As many of you know, the international/unlocked GSM will typically launch months ahead of its U.S. counterparts.  Samsung was said to be looking for a way to narrow that space a bit so delaying the initial launch makes sense.  In regards to when we’ll actually see the Galaxy S III arrive, rumors suggest that it could be tied to the 2012 Olympics set to take place this summer.
