Samsung Galaxy S III reportedly on track for April release

Samsung Galaxy S III reportedly on track for April release

Word on the street today is that Samsung’s much-anticipated Galaxy S III is slated for a March announcement followed by an April launch. The news of this comes from ZDNet Korea who allegedly confirmed the time frame with Samsung’s advertising and marketing firm Cheil Worldwide. The company is said to be planning a massive UK ad campaign centered around the summer Olympics.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard the rumors of an Olympic tie-in for advertising and  it would make sense for Samsung to go big this summer.  With the entire planet watching and an expected worldwide launch, Samsung could hit us over the head with Galaxy S III campaigns.

Given the recently leaked specifications I imagine that there would be plenty of interest in the new flagship model.  Details for the smartphone include Android 4.0, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, a 4.8-inch 1080p high-definition display, and ceramic case.

How many of you are holding out for the Galaxy S III this year?  Are you skipping the current lineup just to get your hands on the new hotness?

    I’m not even that excited about the SIII, although I may end up getting it.  Like Sony, I think that Cortex-A15 is the way to go with quad core.  Also, I’m looking for something less bulky than my EVO, which might take a while, as Samsung will need to make Super Amoled Plus displays have a higher pixel density.

    Lastly, we wont see LTE-Advanced chips until next year, which makes me sad.  I might just hang on to my EVO until next year’s phones.

    What is it about these ceramic cases? Is there a functional benefit?

      I’m going to guess that ceramic means far better RF propagation than a metal case would give you. Therefore less time spent engineering antennas.  
      Or maybe the design guys think it’s cool?

    Even don’t know too much about what the new factors are updated, but I still look forward to the new Galaxy phone.
