Release mired in uncertainty
Samsung continues to send out conflicting signals about when its future flagship phone, the Galaxy S III might be released. Earlier today, Samsung's Senior marketing VP, Younghee Lee, said that the company was "still reviewing" options. At the same time, a probable reference to the phone has since shown up on Samsung's UAE support page as the GT-i9300.
Samsung tends to use a formulaic numbering system that saw Galaxy S use the i90xx range, the Galaxy S II the i91xx range, and the Galaxy Nexus the i9250. The next increment for the S III most logically would be i93xx.
It was expected that Samsung would debut the phone in the US at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in February. However, earlier this week, some uncertainty began to creep in, which was reinforced by Ms. Lee's comments on Friday.
When the phone does finally show up, it's rumored to offer a dual-core 2GHz Exynos 5250 processor, a 720p screen, and run Android 4.0. [via PocketNow]
