Just a little while ago we brought you news that a new image of Samsung’s Galaxy S III smartphone had been leaked. The newest addition to Samsung’s flagship smartphone lineup has been long been rumored to be launching on May 22, as the source for the earlier report suggests.
Now, however, it looks as though an April launch of the phone might be a possibility. Kim Young-Ha, Samsung’s president of Greater China, has hinted in a recent interview (Google Translation) that Samsung was considering rescheduling the release from May to April in hopes of increasing sales of both the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note.
Samsung’s Galaxy S II has been a major hit both in the US and elsewhere, and is seen as one of the chief rivals for Apple’s iPhone. With the launch of the next iPhone coming some time later this year, the pressure is on other handset manufacturers like Samsung to produce a phone that will compete with it. Rumored features of the Galaxy S III include a 4.7-inch or 4.8-inch 720×1280 HD display, a 12 megapixel rear camera, and quad-core 1.2 GHz processor. The phone will almost certainly run the most recent version of the Android operating system, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
