Samsung has officially announced that they will not be announcing their successor to the Galaxy S II — the Galaxy S III — at Mobile World Congress later this month. This cements the rumour that Samsung didn’t like the gap between announcement and consumers getting their hands on the device.
“Samsung is looking forward to introducing and demonstrating exciting new mobile products at Mobile World Congress 2012.
The successor to the Galaxy S II 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.”
As their quote says, they’ll be launching the Galaxy S III before the middle of the year and device availability will be much sooner after the event than with the Galaxy S II which faced delays when it first launched.
Whilst it may be disappointing to hear that Samsung’s latest envelope-pushing device won’t be shown off at MWC, they do promise that there will be technology there that will continue to excite — perhaps an 11.6-inch tablet with high-resolution display?
