In an earlier report today, we reiterated that Samsung will not be showing off their Galaxy S III smartphone at the upcoming MWC expo in Barcelona on 27 February. The company has however admitted that the device exists though, and we now have a fresh update on when we could seeing it in the flesh.
Samsung’s successor to the Galaxy S II could be equipped with a quad-core processor, easily making it the company’s most powerful smartphone ever. Possible hardware specs are still being debated as we speak, but just like the recent Galaxy Nexus launch on Verizon, possible arrival dates are now being contradicted as well.
Earlier this week we told you about rumors suggesting that the Galaxy S III would be releasing on March 13th according to a source of information from Turkey. Just a day later we added another conflicting report on the Galaxy S III, this time suggesting that Samsung may opt to delay the device in favor of launching it alongside the Apple iPhone 5 which is strongly tipped to be releasing this year.
Now, we have one more twist to bring you this week courtesy of Twitter user Eldar Murtazin. According to this individual, the device will be out sometime in April and his words may have some element of strength to it since he leaked a supposed press image of an unannounced Samsung device running Ice Cream Sandwich. He was also responsible for a recent specs leak on the Samsung Galaxy S III, in which he claimed that the elusive device would be equipped with an HD screen, a quad-core processor, Ice Cream Sandwich and a high quality 12 megapixel camera.
Too much information in one week – which should we believe? Our advice is to just take these rumors with a huge pinch of salt as we’re sure many more are likely to follow in the build up to MWC. If you own a Galaxy S II and are eagerly awaiting the announcement of a successor, let us know what kind of specs and features you would like to see.
