While we are all expecting the next version of Samsung’s profoundly popular Galaxy S device to be called the Galaxy S III, there’s really only speculation regarding that. We fully expect it to be called that, sure, but let’s just stick with the communication that Samsung has provided, shall we? So, at least for the sake of this particular story, we’ll stick with “the successor to the Galaxy S II.” And, unfortunately, those rumors that that particular handset wouldn’t be showcased at Mobile World Congress this month have now been confirmed by Samsung.
Here’s the official statement by the manufacturer:
“Samsung is looking forward to introducing and demonstrating exciting new mobile products at Mobile World Congress 2012. The successor to the Galaxy S2 smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product. Samsung stays committed to providing the best possible mobile experiences for customers around the world.”
So now if you’re looking forward to the next flagship device by Samsung, Mobile World Congress is just going to be another show for you while you wait for the “next big thing” from Samsung to be announced sometime within the first half of this year. Here’s to hoping we don’t have to wait too long.
