We know that Samsung has decided to skip a big event at this year’s Mobile World Congress. Instead, they will be showing off new devices at their booth at the trade show next week. Skipping the big spectacle, and with confirmation from Samsung, means that there probably won’t be any indication that the company’s next flagship device, the Galaxy S III –which is still unannounced at this point– will be making an appearance. But, new rumors suggest that if it doesn’t, another high-end smartphone could.
According to a report from The Next Web, Samsung is currently hard at work on a bezel-less device, which is internally codenamed the Galaxy B. As of right now there is not much information to go on, other than it is reported to feature a large AMOLED display, and be lacking any real bezel on the sides or bottom of the device. There will be some bezel at the top, to make sure that there is room for an earpiece and front-facing camera, but that’s it.
As we mentioned above, this isn’t confirmed in the slightest. It’s perfectly possible that this “Galaxy B” is indeed the Galaxy S III, and Samsung is getting ready to launch the device later this year. However, we don’t imagine that Samsung is aiming to launch their flagship device in the third quarter of this year, which seems far away. It’s possible, though, depending on when Samsung finally decides to unveil the handset.
We’ll keep our ears to the ground, and if we hear anything else we’ll pass it along.
