New rumors about Samsung's long awaited next Galaxy S smartphone have popped up on the Internet. The Korean-language web site ETNews.com reports that when Samsung does launch the Galaxy S III smartphone, the product will be only 7 mm in thickness. That's about as thin as Motorola's recent Android smartphone the Droid RAZR.
If true, this might signal the start of a new trend in having smartphones with thin displays and cases. The same story also claims that Samsung is aiming to launch the Galaxy S III sometime in May.
The Galaxy S III was previously rumored to get an introduction later this month at the World Mobile Congress event in Barcelona, Spain. However, the company later confirmed that it would announce the successor to the best selling Galaxy S and Galaxy S II at a separate press event later on in 2012. So far the Galaxy S series of smartphones has resulted in over 40 million worldwide units being sold and has helped Samsung become a huge company in the smartphone marketplace.
A few days ago, some images leaked out that showed a Samsung developed smartphone with some kind of curved and thin display, with some speculating that this was a prototype for the Galaxy S III.
