Dutch website Tweakers has received an invite to a Samsung event on May 3rd. There’s nothing explicitly mentioning the Galaxy S III, but given that the invite says “come and meet the next Galaxy” it surely must be referring to it. A May 3rd announcement would give Samsung enough time to roll out the device for a May 22nd launch — a date that has been hanging around for over a month. The event is taking place in London, and we’ve received no word from Samsung AU yet as to whether or not there will be an Aussie launch event as well.
The Samsung Galaxy S III is expected to have a 4.7-inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED Plus HD display, a Quad-Core Exynos CPU running Android 4.0 with Samsung’s TouchWiz skin. The Galaxy S III will be up against fierce competition in the HTC One X, which is by far the best Android phone I’ve used.
There has been no confirmation as to what the Galaxy S III will look like, but the above render is the closest thing we’ve had to what seems like the real deal.
