Samsung Galaxy S III to be revealed May 3rd?

The long wait for the next entry in Samsung's Galaxy S smartphone lineup is apparently close to being over. Tweakers.net (via TheNextWeb) has posted word that it has received an invite from Samsung to attend a press event in London on May 3rd. The tag line of the invite is simply, "Come and meet the next Galaxy."

While it's possible that Samsung could be promoting the launch of yet another Galaxy Tab product, it's more likely that the event will lift the curtains off the Galaxy S III for the first time in public.

There have been a lot of rumors about what the next smartphone in the Android-based series will have in terms of hardware. Most suggest that it will have Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) out of the box like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Other rumors say it will have a quad-core processor, a large 4.8 inch screen and a 12 megapixel rear camera. Samsung has not commented on these rumors.

The first two Galaxy S phones have been huge sales successes for Samsung. In October, the company claimed that it had sold a combined total of 30 million Galaxy S phones since the original launched in June 2010.

I wonder if it will be called Samsung Galaxy S III.

but i have some naming guesses,

it could be called Samsung Galaxy S Olympic, Samsung Galaxy S III Olympic or just Samsung Galaxy Olympic.

I guess we will have to wait and see, it would be a good guess if i were right lol.

Samsung should focus on WP7 as android is attrocious. Same for HTC, they are going to sink faster than the titanic if they still use Android on their phones.
Wp7, WebOS > iOS, BB > Bada > windows mobile 5.0 > Windows Millenium > Android ( All versions ).
Sorry folks, truth is hard to swallow.

Your delusional.

My trash company is holding a press conference the same day to announce we're getting new trash cans. These press buildups are getting on my nerves anymore. Just tell us what's coming out already and be done with it.

Yay galaxy III!!

Ill probably get one 2nd hand 6 months after release, the great thing about andorid's is their 2nd hand resale price is SO much cheaper than an iPhone. I'd hate to be unable to afford new and want to get one. 5-600 for the 3GS got my SII for 430

4.8-inch display? crap!

put the Toshiba 4-inch, 367ppi, 720p display with ICS and remove the buttons like on Nexus and you will kill the iphone

Get rid of Touchwiz, put in a massive 2100 mAH battery, and I would buy it immediately. Alternative launchers are nice, but I want the stock ICS experience, and Touchwiz is one of the worst stock launcher/interface.

I dislike Motoblur, but that could be from using Touchwiz more often. I played around with ROMs (from stock to AOSP) and launchers a lot. After it all, I'm back on TW. It all comes down to preference, really.

Absolutely, it's all personal preference. I liked Sense 1.x but it got really bloated, so don't like it anymore. I used to do the same with my Droid Incredible - flash ROM's without Sense, and then I would somehow end up on ROM's with Sense. Sense 1.x was really awesome - very minimal, yet so many features, and fast.

I don't know if I want to get this or wait until the next Nexus release... ughh first world problems right?

These are my thoughts exactly. I'm due to upgrade my Nexus One this July and I'm dying to get a new phone. Let's see what my birthday month of May brings, hopefully it's something nice, else I'm waiting til end of year

Can't wait!
Regardless of what the specs end up being, or any other details about it, this is definitely going to be my next phone - my Galaxy S 1 has served me well, and it's time to upgrade, so this will be the perfect choice

You know you will be held to that now, even if it has a 1.8" screen and Symbian?

Seriously though a 4.8" screen seems awfully large, if only because it would start to overlap the Galaxy Note which Samsung is promoting heavily, at least in the UK.

I'm in the exact same situation. By the time it is released, I will still have 2 or 3 months on my contract, but I am going to get one on day one regardless.

Yeah, that's massive! I thought the SGS II was too big (4.3"). My SGS I contract is coming to an end this summer and I was hoping to go for the SGS III, but at 4.8", I may have a reason NOT buy this phone.
