Samsung may launch Galaxy S III in Q2 2012

The strong sales of the Samsung Galaxy S and its successor and the fact that the Galaxy S II outsold the iPhone 4S during Christmas sales in the USA may have stimulated Samsung to release a new Galaxy smartphone next year dubbed the Galaxy S III.

The official announcement is expected to take place during the Mobile World Congress in February 2012.

The expected Samsung Galaxy S III specs include a very powerful 1.80 GHz or even 2.0 GHz quad-core processor, a 12-megapixel camera and possible support for 3D. All these specs throw the iPhone 4S in the dust although the powerful processor and the supposed 3D capabilities may have a negative effect on the battery.

Samsung Galaxy S II

In any case Samsung wants the successor of the Galaxy S II to be a very strong leading product that will take the company further on the smartphone market.

More detailed specs of the upcoming phone are expected when the launch date gets closer next year.
