We've been hearing about the Galaxy S III for months. When the phone didn't make an appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, we assumed it would show up at Mobile World Congress at the end of February. Though it was certainly starting to look like Samsung might unveil the SIII at MWC, the company eventually confirmed that it would not be bringing the phone to MWC in Barcelona. Samsung said it didn't want there to be a lengthy gap between the unveiling and actual launch. As such, it chose to postpone the announcement of the Galaxy S III until closer to the phone's release.
Since then there's been tons of speculation as to when the phone will launch, what kind of specs it will sport, and what it will look like. Today Samsung finally put us out of our misery with invites to a press event scheduled for May 3. Though Samsung's invites didn't specifically say the event was for the Galaxy S III, the tagline reads 'Come and meet the next Galaxy,' and unless we're going to see an all new Galaxy tablet, we think it's safe to assume that May 3 is for the Galaxy S III.
The event itself is taking place at Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012, which will take place in London. Stay tuned and we'll bring you all the latest S III news on the day!
