It’s Official: No Samsung Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress

Well the rumors were swirling in the wind last week that the Galaxy S III would be a no show for next month’s Mobile World Congress, and now we can move it from the rumor file to the official file. Techradar was able to get a statement from Samsung regarding the situation:

“Samsung is looking forward to introducing and demonstrating exciting new mobile products at Mobile World Congress 2012. The successor to the Galaxy S2 smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product. Samsung stays committed to providing the best possible mobile experiences for customers around the world.”

Sure this might be a Debbie Downer, but we know it’s coming. Does it matter  whether they announce it next month or in a few months? This sounds like they might be trying to line up the international and U.S. launches. If you remember, last year the Galaxy S II was out for nearly 6 months before it became available in the U.S. It’s also possible they are going to do some more modifications. Remember the Galaxy Tab 10.1? They unveiled it, only to go back to the drawing board after seeing the thinness of the iPad 2. Who knows, after seeing what Motorola was able to do, packing a 33oomAh battery in an 8.9mm body, Samsung might make a few more tweaks before unveiling it. Of course this is all speculation, but one thing’s for sure, it will be worth the wait.
