Samsung I9300 leaked info suggests a mid-may launch

28 March, 2012

Alright folks, bring out your salt shakers for we have yet another Galaxy S III rumor for you. According to a tip received from one of our readers, the Samsung I9300 will be hitting stores in mid-May this year.

Now as most people would assume, the I9300 model name suggests that the phone could be the long overdue Galaxy S III. But turns out that the phone was actually called the Galaxy M in the ordering system. Now this could either be just to throw people off or it might actually just be a new handset called the Galaxy M.

Now if you recall Samsung's recently changed naming scheme, the Galaxy M moniker is for mid-tier handsets. If it is a mid-range device, then the image leak from a few days ago makes sense. That device never looked like a flagship Samsung device to us and more like a mid-range smartphone, befitting of the Galaxy M name.

If the information is correct, we are still a month and a half away from the phone hitting shelves, but that also means that the official announcement will be a lot sooner.

Thanks EgonOne for the tip!
