We initially speculated that Samsung will be revealing the Galaxy S3 at next month’s Mobile World Congress. However, Chris Ziegler (The Verge) and other German sites are reporting that the Android manufacturer will not be announcing the device in Barcelona.

For many people, this is a complete surprise, especially since both the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S II first made a debut a day before last year’s MWC. So if you’re hoping to see the successor of the company’s flagship smartphone on February 27, you might end up disappointed.

One of the reasons why experts believe the announcement of the Galaxy S3 will be delayed is because the company is ‘uncomfortable with another long lag between the global launch and US availability’ (Ziegler). That’s a huge possibility.

Perhaps Samsung is concentrating on the Exynos 5250 SoC? Considering its biggest rival is quad-core chips, it might be possible Samsung is doing its best to launch off the chip soon.


As of this writing, there are no specifics of the specs included on the Galaxy S3. All we have are speculations and rumors. So until an announcement has been made, that’s all we’ll have to share.
