Samsung Galaxy S III won’t make an appearance at MWC

The anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III won’t be appearing anytime soon as Samsung has confirmed that it won’t be revealed at Mobile World Congress 2012. Here’s the statement straight from the horse’s mouth:

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.

Last year, the Samsung Galaxy S II was revealed on 13 February, a day before MWC 2011. However it took about 4 months before it was officially available in Malaysia. In between the announcement and long awaited commercial availability, the Galaxy S II spec was upgraded from the initial dual core 1.0GHz to 1.2Ghz. It was a rather long wait back then and Samsung is now looking to reveal Galaxy S III closer to its commercial availability.

This also gives Samsung the opportunity to see what the competition are up to at MWC which gives them room to make changes. We all know that Samsung is well capable of making quick and drastic changes on its product line up as seen on the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1 & 8.9.

Hopefully by the time they release it sometime in the first half of 2012, Samsung would have a more compelling product. So for the time being, the Galaxy S II, Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy Note shall remain as the high end models for Samsung for another 4-5 months.

Samsung is waiting for Iphone 5 to come first so that it can copy iPhone 5. I remember they come out with galaxy tab 10v and have to discontinue it after iPad 2 come out. I guess Samsung get more clever now and will wait for iPhone to come out first so that they can copy iPhone. They don't mind getting sued anyway.


Yup it's all about releasing it at the right time. Then they can give a full blow impact in the industry 🙂


one of the possible reason is, the name 'samsung galaxy s3' is just a hoax created by those fans…
if samsung nvr working a phone with that name, sure they wont admit..
i also agree with racistmalaysian, where there are leaders, definitely will have followers.

samsung fanboy

You have to give it to Samsung to come up with a smartphone superior to the iphone. Nobody would have thoz this was possible, coming from a Korean outfit.

the Galaxy S III is poised to samsung! iphone 5 again, as de preferred choice of smart users
