Galaxy S III unveiling due at Samsung event in first half of year
We've heard the rumors, and gone over the possibility in an editorial, but now we have it straight from the horse's mouth -- the Samsung Galaxy S III will not be making its debut at Mobile World Congress. In a statement released today, the Korean manufacturer clarified its plans for next month's show, saying --
"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."
So that's that -- no Galaxy S III at MWC.That doesn't change the fact that there'll still be a ton of new Android devices on the show floor, though. HTC, LG and Sony Ericsson will surely be out in force at MWC, and we'll also have those "exciting new mobile products" from Samsung to look forward to. As for the Galaxy S III, it's now on track to appear by end of June, and we're just fine with that.
