Rumors surfaced on Monday suggesting that Samsung will unveil the highly anticipated Galaxy S III during a press event in Amsterdam on March 15th, but we doubt the company will make the announcement at that time. First, Samsung would do better to announce the phone on a global stage during Mobile World Congress, but the company has already said that it will not be holding a press conference during that trade show. Second, we suspect Samsung’s Amsterdam event is more of a product showcase that will display many of the company’s new electronics, including televisions and other consumer devices, instead of a mobile event. Samsung is holding a similar event in New York City in early March and already confirmed it will not announce the Galaxy S III during a similar March event in France.
Rumored specs for the Galaxy S III include an 8-megapixel camera, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a Super AMOLED screen, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 7mm thick form factor.
When will Samsung announce the Galaxy S III? We suspect the company will make an official announcement in the coming months, perhaps even in May during CTIA in New Orleans. Mobile companies are always chock full of surprises though, so you never know.
