For Android users, the Samsung Galaxy S III is undoubtedly the most anticipated handset of 2012 so far. We’ve been talking about it for months, but the device is yet to show its face. According to Samsung China’s president, however, its launch date has been moved forward and we don’t have much longer to wait.
A number of Korean news outlets — via The Verge — are reporting today that Samsung China president Kim Young-Ha has confirmed to the Beijing press that the company’s next flagship Android handset will launch in April instead of May.
While Samsung has previously denied an April launch, it would appear that its plans for the Galaxy S III have now changed. The reason for this is unclear, but according to The Next Web, it is believed that the company is looking to quickly finalize plans for what could be the official smartphone of the 2012 Olympic Games, which kicks off in July.
Earlier this week, an unnamed Samsung executive reportedly confirmed that the device will feature a quad-core Samsung Exynos processor, which supports 4G LTE connections, unlike NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 chip.
