Is Samsung delaying the launch of Galaxy S III until after MWC?

25 January, 2012
The company might announce the device later to avoid a huge gap between its global and US availability.

Working in the mobile phone field and enjoying a wide variety of devices; I will make a wild prediction that the Galaxy SIII will be the phone to own this year. The SII made such an impression in our stores that it even drew in Apple afficianados. In Canada and the US, that is a really tough nut to crack.

The longer I work in this industry the more I realize that "better" is dependent on perception and not necessarily spec. The SII was a thing of beauty, with just a few minor tweaks to over all design and port placement, it definitely set itself apart from the iPhone; which unfortunately the original S did not do.

The SIII will be among the top players this year and will likely be the best for viewing experience on the whole. There will definitely be stiff competition from Sony and Apple as well.

I personally own an SII and an iphone 4S and enjoy them for different reasons, but the SII has the flash factor this year. Here is to an exciting 2012, hopefully Samsung keeps up the momentum.

sII got amo LED but the color look green. hope sIII the color look more natural.

  • Samsung stays behind

It is normal to south Korean company to stays behind the US company like Apple. They will loose their important client if they introduce something better on market.They will be always the sparing for apple only teasing but not competing.

Now Samsung must just come up with a free app that can outsmart the Apple Voice function, and makes it available to all other Samsung Android phones - mmmm, I'll be the first to download, lol.

There will be a tough competition between SG3 along with SG2(as SG2 is still popular) and iphone5 along with iphone 4S. Apart from these two amjor players, other emerging players are also there in the battlefield. So now soncumers will go for the one which has more features, good looking, and with more battery lifel.
Motorola came up with 3300mAH battery but have no idea how log it battery lasts once fully charged. I hope Nokia and Samsung will also come up with phones with better battery life.

Yea right.Samsung are scared off from Sony.They didn`t expect that they`ll strike that hard.Xperia S is break the Samsung plans for easy win.Now they`ll never win.Samsung was strong when sonyericsson(Sony) was down becasue of theyr unnatractive and cheap ``innovations``.But now tides are changed,Sony is again in best shape,maybe better than ever.So competition can just take care.I`m not the fanboy at all,but i`m telling the facts right.Don`t argue with me to convince me in opposite.That`ll not work at me.Cheers

AnonD-7496, 27 Jan 2012lol if they made the device first and wanted for competition, wo... moreHmmm....sounds like he's been reading into too much of the mainstream Apple obsessed sensationalist media headlines, people can't decide for themselves what they like. Yes, Samsung have copied slightly with case covers and some icons, but doesn't that make LG a copycat by definition seeing as thier UI is almost identical. Samsung fearing competition??? If anything, Samsung THRIVES competition unlike Apple whom sue and doctor images of the competition to make a device look like thier own, that makes them fear competitiveness, not Samsung. Samsung like Apple, are a large conglomerate company but for what it's worth, the ideas and innovations of the Asian giant are far more exciting long term than Apple, which takes a careful yet dull approach but to aggressively patent minute details that never materialise but do it for the sake of being 'inventive'. Wasn't the swipe down menu in I0S 5 Android's idea, in that case should Google not sue Apple for infringing on thier idea, and Apple has the cheek to accuse the Galaxy Nexus of taking the swipe to unlock feature when it is clear that a) the Galaxy Nexus can be unlocked either way in both directions and has face unlock added too b) many other phones have this feature c) this is more personal than an attack on Samsung, Apple are after ICS and Google for a swipe feature that in no way is reminiscent of the IOS swipe to unlock. Hypocritical hyperbole coming from the communist led egos of Cupertino who no doubt, want every one of us to own an Iphone. It looks like thier good at manipulating a few gullible people.
