    Galaxy-S3 official

    Aside from the confirmed European release date of the Samsung Galaxy S3, Sammy hasn’t set a specific release date for the flagship phone in other regions. At times like these we have to crank up our efforts to dig up more information from the local reps in each country with some help from our friends.

    Now, the good news. If you live in the Philippines, there’s a good chance you will be one of the first in the area to play with the Samsung Galaxy S3. Techpinas, a local gadget blog, has apparently received word from the officials at Samsung Mobile Philippines concerning the expected release date of the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the country. According to the insider, the Galaxy S3 will be launched in the Philippines by the last week of May. Yes, this very month. If accurate, this puts the Philippines launch ahead of the supposed June launch date slated for some other regions.  The date has also been reported and confirmed by several other tech blogs in the country.

    Although the insider couldn’t share any price details about the Samsung Galaxy S3, the phone is expected to be sold for PHP 30,000 or about US$700. It is at the lower range of our own predictions, but apparently that’s the price that the Samsung Galaxy S2 debuted for last year in the Philippines. One would assume that the price for a 4.8-inch super phone would be different from a 4.3-inch one though.

    In case you’re wondering how your country fares relative to others, here are our reports on Samsung Galaxy S3’s expected release date in Europe, US, Canada, India, and Southeast Asia. Australia, apparently, won’t get any early love from Samsung. Don’t forget to share the joy with our readers if you do get the Samsung Galaxy S3 early.

        Globe Telecom is now accepting pre orders for the s3

      • Guido

        Indeed. But in America (and suroundings) they probably sell more of the phones, just like the Samsung Galaxy Note II

    • Deteriaz

      Hopefully the Quad core will make it to the US.

      • Gabba

        It won’t, but I’m secretly hoping they’ll put in a 5250 for the US
