Samsung quashes talk of Galaxy S III at March 22 event

Samsung says France event not linked to new phone

Samsung in a response Tuesday quickly dampened rumors that it had already picked a special event date for the postponed Galaxy S III. A French invitation to a March 22 event was just a biannual open house event, Samsung told The Next Web. The Korean company had promised a separate event later than Mobile World Congress in late February, but hadn't said when.

Most anticipate an unveiling and release in the spring, although the rumors surrounding the timing have been vague at most. One claim had it arriving in May, or roughly a year after the Galaxy S II, but now with an announcement closer to the actual ship date. Tips have pointed to everything from a quad-core processor and an 0.28-inch thickness to the 2GHz, dual-core Exynos 5250 and a more evolutionary design.

Samsung is still likely to cater to Europe and Korea first. The timing from a since corroborated rumor was partly to help set expectations for a US release and could see Samsung bring out an American version at the CTIA's spring show, also in May.

    I am sure they have 304 new models to release prio

    It seems that every little change to a Samsung handset...even as little as the colour of the plastic results in a new announcement of another phone with a new name.
