Samsung says no Galaxy S III this month Samsung has confirmed today that it will not be launching the Galaxy S III smartphone this month, as rumored.
Many had speculated the phone would be put on display at this month's Mobile World Congress in Spain and Samsung had even suggested it last year. Unfortunately, the company has had to delay the launch:

"The successor to the Galaxy S II smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product," said a spokesperson. (Verge)

Samsung's latest note seems to be in-line with other reports which speculated the launch could come in June, when the phone would be available globally and in the U.S. There was a multi-month lag between launches for the Galaxy S II that the company wants to avoid this time around.

The S III will likely come with a quad-core processor among other new additions.
