However, Korean website MT is reporting that a Samsung official has denied this rumor. According to the publication, Samsung has yet to decide when the Galaxy S III is going to be released, but it will definitely not happen in the fourth month of the year (April). Instead, another new (and currently unnamed) Samsung Android smartphone with LTE connectivity should be introduced then.
Several handset makers have already announced quad-core Android Ice Cream Sandwich smartphones, which should become available before the end of June. We have the HTC One X, the LG Optimus 4X HD, the Huawei Ascend D, and the ZTE Era. All these will certainly give the Galaxy S III a run for its money, so Samsung should hurry up with its launch.
A couple of weeks ago, Samsung said that it sold more than 20 million Galaxy S II smartphones worldwide, hence expectations regarding the Galaxy S III are certainly high. But with a rumored 4.8 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixels display (a first for a smartphone), the new Galaxy should have no problems attracting millions of customers, too.
