Samsung still reviewing several options when to launch their flagship Galaxy S III

The wait is on.

The Samsung Galaxy S III truly is the next big thing in Android land right now, even though the device has not been officially announced. Many of us expected Samsung to unpack their next flagship phone during Mobile World Congress in late February, but the latest rumors suggest it will not make an appearance at that show.

This week during Samsung’s earnings call, a company executive named Mrs. Younghee Lee actually acknowledged the existence of the Galaxy S III. In response to an analyst question about the Galaxy S III launch date, Mrs. Lee responded, “We are still reviewing several options when to launch. We will let you know when it’s decided.”

Also discovered this morning on a Samsung support site was an upcoming model number GT-I9300. This is one of the highest model numbers we have seen yet (Galaxy Nexus was i9250), which leads some to believe this could be the model number of the Galaxy S III.

While most companies have already announced their MWC press events, Samsung has yet to send out an invitation to theirs. With every passing day, it looks more likely that Samsung will not be announcing their Galaxy S III next month.

Other recent rumors suggest there are multiple versions of the Galaxy S III in testing, so Samsung could still be debating which model to go with. It is widely believed that Samsung will use their own quad-core 1.5 GHz Exynos 4412 processor, but there’s also a small chance they could go with the next-generation dual-core 2.0 GHz Exynos 5250.

We already saw the Exynos 5250 in action at CES and Samsung revealed during their earnings call that mass production would begin in Q2. The chip is likely to appear in a tablet first, but it should also power smartphones later this year.

Personally, I’m rooting for Samsung to push back the release date of the Galaxy S III and go with the Exynos 5250. The chances of this are slim based on the availability of the chip, but Samsung could boast the first smartphone based on ARM’s Cortex-A15 CPU core.

Mobile World Congress is exactly one month away and I’ll be making the long trip to check it out, so hopefully we can uncover the true story soon.

    Take your time Sammy and release the beast when ready

    • http://androidandme.com Taylor Wimberly

      Yeah I agree. I don’t see the need to push out a new flagship every year unless there is some major new technology to take advantage of. We already have quad-core Cortex-A9 chips out like Tegra 3. I want to see Sammy push the limits and be first to Cortex-A15.

      • hector manzanarez

        Why isn’t the quad core better? What are the benefits of A15

        • kazahani

          Smaller architecture, more power efficient, higher clock speeds, etc…

        • metafor

          The same reason a dual Core i5/i3 is better than quad Pentium 3.

      • BiGMERF

        i def can see an early sgs3 release using the dual core and then a mid/late year (iphone 5 competitor) re-release with the quad core.. Manufacturers seem to be getting used to the idea of releasing a device and then re-releasing it a few months later with some upgrades.

    • stenzor

      Yes please, let me enjoy my time with the Galaxy Nexus first

  • Nicholas

    They should release it in early spring. I purchased the Captivate Galaxy S I on its initial release date. My upgrade is in March. Samsung will get all the Galaxy S I on this renewal cycle.

    • kazahani

      I was thinking the same thing. This would be thier only justification for not going with Exynos 5250

  • Trinhbo

    They should wait until it has been thoroughly tested before having a global launch. It’s frustrating when they release it overseas in Europe and in Asia and then the US customers are left wanting for another 6 months.

    • paul

      If is frustrated when they do that. Motorola do that aswell but the other way round, release in America then 3 to 6 months later release to uk , Europe

  • josegb2011

    tame the beast until is ready to bring chaos tothis world.

    • kazahani

      Wow, that’s the third reference to caging or taming or releasing “the beast” in this thread. I believe it’s run it’s course now.

  • Nate B.

    When I think about it, the only phones that matter when it comes to Android to me are the Galaxy S series phones and the Nexus. I guess HTC has a chance to step back in the limelight with a better and less bloated cluttered Sense with 4.0.

    Sammy makes beautiful devices and quality performance. They bring that to the Nexus phones as well. The only thing I don’t like when the Nexus comes out, they make it based off the Galaxy flagship. Break the boundaries again, and not just make a stock Galaxy phone and call it a Nexus. I understand in some cases the hardware or technology isn’t ready just yet, but in some cases I’m sure they are.

    Anyways, I do hope they decide to have a much more reasonable launch global wise. If that’s the case, then they need to take that in consideration for the next Nexus as well. I mean we all will be on LTE by then.

  • Derek

    I would think two A-15 cores running at 2.0GHz would be better than 4 A9 cores running at 1.5GHz, especially on battery life.

    • kazahani

      Yes, overall it would be better.

      Think of the cores as motorcycles. If you have 4 motorcycles that can go 150 mph (quad core 1.5 GHz), then you have the ability to do more things at once than if you had 2 motorcycles that can go 200mph (dual core 2.0 GHZ). However, if you need something simple done very quickly, then the 200 mph motorcycles are going to be faster.

  • Galaxy Nexus

    Samsung really do not have to rush Galaxy SIII

    They already have Galaxy Nexus happening almost all over the world. Not to mention they have Galaxy SII HD series as well.

    I wouldn’t mind about the little different software tweaks. What I really want is that Samsung bring exact same hardware for all Galaxy SIII across the world at least. It will be better for them and better for Android Community.

  • h0ruza

    It will be interesting to see when they do release it as last year the GSII was selling like hot cakes on its release so I would have thought Samsung would want a repeat of the same.

    Then again they want it to be enough of an upgrade to hold off the iPhone 5 when it comes out but if they leave it too long people may hold off for the iPhone 5 because the release date are closer than last year.

    I wonder how they will play it?

  • Leo Young

    Interesting choice. They have an established pattern of releasing a new flagship product every year at MWC – when you are the leader, everyone’s eyes are on you. it does not take much to lose the crown. Right Blackberry?

    However, the question of a dual-core A15 vs. a quad-core A9 is an interesting one. It seems from the literature, that the dual-core A15 will be faster and use less power than the quad-core A9. It seems that many manufacturers, including Apple, will go with a quad-core design this year. Sammy could run with the pack, or leapfrog over them again, AFTER everyone else has shown their hands. The thing that would cause the delay is ramping up production of the new processor. If the speed up and decreased power drain is as drastic as it seems that it might be, then the wait will be well worth it.

  • http://www.infotainmentempire.com pekosROB

    As others have said, yes, they don’t need to rush the SIII. Make it as good a phone as you can, Samsung. You just released the Galaxy Nexus less than 2 months ago! Don’t cannibalize your own sales! Do a fall/winter release for this device, so I can upgrade come January 2013!!! :-D

    • Orion78

      Fall/winter release? Ummm how about no. I can see this releasing at summertime though.

      • paul

        Yes the autumn is to late, late spring or early summer please.

      • http://www.infotainmentempire.com pekosROB

        The only reason I said fall/winter release is so I can upgrade with it. Sheesh, do people not read comments in their entirety? Guess not.

  • cb2000a

    Release it before the iphone 5 and then sue Apple for copying your design….okay in all seriousness I don’t see this in the U.S. till summer at the earliest.

  • Billy

    Yummy … Craigslist meet my Galaxy Nexus.

  • Richard Yarrell

    Man this is going to be a great summer just sitting back and watching the battle. I know today that me and my Galaxy Nexus is sitting very SECURE on top of the heap. I hope samsung just cools it’s heals and produces three meaning one verison of the G3 by June then another verison by December. The upcoming new Galaxy Nexus for 2012 should be based on all of the above specs but totally stock so in my book the next Galaxy Nexus coming at the end of this year will be the TOP DEVICE to have. Either NOBODY should DISCOUNT HTC they will be back HARD and HEAVY this year..As far as android is concerned it’s all about HTC and SAMSUNG plain and simple.

    • Orion78

      So this is the game you’re going to start playing now? You and your phone on top of the heap? Lmao get over yourself. Everytime there’s a new flagship phone coming out, you have to mention your Nexus as if to make you feel better. Sorry to break it to you. Once the GS3 comes out, it will leave your precious phone in the dust. Next Nexus ain’t coming out till end of the year…..slow down buddy. Moral of the story, GS3 will be THE phone to have in 2012.

      • squiddy20

        “So this is the game you’re going to start playing now?” …he never stopped. As he’ll probably tell you, his first Android phone was the Evo 4G, and from the time he first got it “on release date” till the time he got the Evo 3D, he said the same stupid crap. Then when he got the Evo 3D, he said how “legendary” it was and how it would be “Sprint’s flagship device well into 2012″ like the stupid broken record he is. Then he ditched Sprint for Verizon, basically said the LG Revolution was “ok”, bragged about owning the Galaxy S2 Skyrocket (AT&T) for only 3 whole weeks, and then finally settled on the Galaxy Nexus. This is nothing new and absolutely immature for a “man” of 45 years or more. Of course, he was living on the streets of NYC, so I’m sure something got messed up in that pathetic little brain of his boweryapplications.org/Images/…/Red%20Door%20Jun2007.pdf

    • squiddy20

      *sigh* As usual, you only deceive yourself Dicky. The Nexus S on T-Mobile was only “on top of the heap” for 4 or so months before other, more powerful (and more marketed) phones were released. The Nexus S 4G (Sprint’s version) was only “on top of the heap” for about the same amount of time. The same will undoubtedly be true of the Galaxy Nexus with Verizon. Huge hoopla for another few months and as soon as Verizon’s released another high end phone, most of the talk will be about “the next big thing”. The world goes on. The Nexus One is the only one so far to have been marketed as extensively of the 3 Nexus phones (counting the NS4G on it’s own). Even today, more than 2 years later, there are still developers actively tinkering with it. Good job at trying to boost your confidence in a product that will NOT be “sitting very secure on top of the heap” in the coming months.
      “The upcoming new Galaxy Nexus for 2012″ Everything about that statement is totally wrong. I can guaruntee you, with 100% certainty, that the next Nexus phone will not be named “Galaxy Nexus” or not even Galaxy Nexus 2″. Heres why: First Nexus phone? Nexus One. Second Nexus phone? Nexus S. (Technically) Third Nexus phone? Nexus S 4G. 4th Nexus phone: Galaxy Nexus. The only thing common to all 4 is the word “Nexus”.
      “…but totally stock” Ummmm… DUH???? When has a Nexus phone NOT been “totally stock”? What a moron.
      “As far as android is concerned it’s all about HTC and SAMSUNG plain and simple” Yet again, everything about that statement is horribly wrong. Android is NOT “all about HTC and Samsung”. Android is ALL the manufacturers that put time and money into making phone running the OS, from the big names like Samsung, Motorola, HTC, and LG to the little-known-about ones like Huawei (remember them? http://androidandme.com/2012/01/devices/hands-on-with-the-huawei-ascend-p1-lte-2/comment-page-1/#comment-249750 ), ZTE, Meizu, and Lenovo to name a few. Android is about community, development, and growth, something you desperately need to work on since you sound like a whining 8 year old girl. Grow up for once in your miserable little life. Realize that the world is bigger than you and that no one cares about you or your opinions, especially when they’re as deluded and childish as they are. It’s sad you feel the need to make these childish statements about how “x device will be king for a year, and I’ve got it”. Seriously, I’m 20 and I haven’t done that for at least 8 years. And you seriously expect me to treat you with respect when you’re easily double my age but pull the same crap as a snotty 8 year old brat? Haha what a joke. Grow the fuck up or shut up.

      • Orion78

        What was comical about his statement is that he mention… HE and his phone will be on top of the heap. He as himself. As if he’s saying they’re both dominating the world. Lmao who is this dude?

        • squiddy20

          To phrase it in words he uses, he’s a “useless”, “trolling” nobody who will insult you by calling you a “bum” and/or “broke” among other juvenile things, when not even 5 years ago, he himself was homeless on the streets of NYC. Then he got a tiny bit of education on how to work a computer through the Bowery Mission and suddenly he’s Mr. Knowitall. He seriously told me several times that rooting was for “2plus year old devices” but I only think he said that because he has no real computer with which to root his phones (as he constantly insults me about my “5 year old laptop” when I definitely have a 2.5 year old MacBook Pro) and because the whole process is way over his extremely limited tech skills/knowhow. He also argued for weeks with many other people on Phandroid (before getting booted off 4 times) about how the processor in the HTC Sensation was inferior to the same exact one found in his “legendary” Evo 3D, even after numerous sources being shoved in his ignorant little face. He’s also told me on multiple occasions that because I only own a “useless” Samsung Moment, that “these” forums do not apply to me and that I should leave. Oh! And if you really piss him off, he’ll insult you about how you live in your mother’s (or grandmother’s) deep dark basement because you’re “too poor” to have a place of your own. When he comes up with childish insults like these, I really think he’s just projecting his miserable little problems onto other people to make his shitty life seem better. It’s quite comical reading all of the crap he seems to make up. Search google for “Richard Yarrell”, “yarrellray”, or “rockingmyevo3d”. They are all his various screen names. In fact, you may want to start at his “review” of the Evo 3D: http://androidandme.com/2011/07/reviews/richard-yarrell-reviews-the-evo-3d/ It’s utterly hilarious!

        This was posted on on Phandroid before they banned you (look at the timestamps on these last two posts):
        There’s no doubt this is an exceptional device. I owed thunderbolt owners an apology cause I downed this device in many posts on various sites as well as here. The other day at best buy i had a chance to hold a thunderbolt and play around with one for 30mins and i was truly amazed. This device was STUPID FAST and very snappy and i was truly amazed at the time and effort htc put into this device. The sense ui was snappy the dnla feature was refreshing to see and all the personalized features for lock screens and various scenes were much new. I had the chance to compare it to an htc inspire 4g and it was amazing how close these devices both resembled eachother and the Desire Z. The only thing missing from the Thunderbolt that the Inspire 4g had was htc likes and htcsense.com and I can’t figure out why that was missing. I was very impressed with the thunderbolt and i can say that yes it is better than the granddaddy of 4g my beloved Htc Evo 4g 11months worth of better. Customers on Verizon should be proud they have a great device to support android. My fellow Evo owners on sprint we had our day June 2010 to March 2011 being on top now that belongs to the Thunderbolt on Verizon. Our new member to the Evo family on sprint will be born soon then we will see who’s best again. Hats off to the thunderbolt.

        http://phandroid.com/2011/04/08/htc-thunderbolt-on-verizon-review-video/

        Then you went on to call it “Thunderdud” and Verizon “The Devil” and claimed that they were both “useless”.
        Try this out sometime: get hold of a Thunderbolt and a GNex, set them both on 3G and see which one does voice and data. As for these claims of 3 hour battery life, it is readily apparent that you’ve never actually used one, you just seen someone post that, and you parroted it (like everything you post). I had a GNex, I took it back. The only thing it had “going for it” (not really) was Android 4.0, which is rapidly becoming the Windows Vista of Android, unfortunately. I’d try to explain why this is the case, but you don’t know the difference between the words “rather” and “whether”, so it would be far more constructive for me to try to teach a boog like yourself proper English – which is impossible.

          To phrase it in words he uses, he’s a “useless”, “trolling” nobody who will insult you by calling you a “bum” and/or “broke” among other juvenile things, when not even 5 years ago, he himself was homeless on the streets of NYC. Then he got a tiny bit of education on how to work a computer through the Bowery Mission and suddenly he’s Mr. Knowitall. He seriously told me several times that rooting was for “2plus year old devices” but I only think he said that because he has no real computer with which to root his phones (as he constantly insults me about my “5 year old laptop” when I definitely have a 2.5 year old MacBook Pro) and because the whole process is way over his extremely limited tech skills/knowhow. He also argued for weeks with many other people on Phandroid (before getting booted off 4 times) about how the processor in the HTC Sensation was inferior to the same exact one found in his “legendary” Evo 3D, even after numerous sources being shoved in his ignorant little face. He’s also told me on multiple occasions that because I only own a “useless” Samsung Moment, that “these” forums do not apply to me and that I should leave. Oh! And if you really piss him off, he’ll insult you about how you live in your mother’s (or grandmother’s) deep dark basement because you’re “too poor” to have a place of your own. When he comes up with childish insults like these, I really think he’s just projecting his miserable little problems onto other people to make his shitty life seem better. It’s quite comical reading all of the crap he seems to make up. Search google for “Richard Yarrell”, “yarrellray”, or “rockingmyevo3d”. They are all his various screen names. In fact, you may want to start at his “review” of the Evo 3D: http://androidandme.com/2011/07/reviews/richard-yarrell-reviews-the-evo-3d/ It’s utterly hilarious!

      “Yes you are right apple is definitely useless. And true we won’t discuss carrier update problems ie no galaxy s2 because of non compatibility with exynos processors nor will we discuss legendary LTE battery drain ie Thunderbolt 3HRS tops with LTE turned on. Nor will we discuss blundered updates to gingerbread 2.3.3 on the thunderbolt or various other devices. And yes to your Droid Bionic the device that took 9months to come market at best it’s a joke. Motorola Photon 4G vs Droid Bionic who you think wins definitely ain’t no bionic that’s for sure. Trust me there are many android devices thank god for that but every android are not built the same nor are carriers the same. The EVO BRAND Is android a brand that has ushered in today’s 4g technology no brand is better. That is why evo always gets updates and htc is the best android manufacturer around. Without htc there is no android”

        This was posted on on Phandroid before they banned you (look at the timestamps on these last two posts):
        There’s no doubt this is an exceptional device. I owed thunderbolt owners an apology cause I downed this device in many posts on various sites as well as here. The other day at best buy i had a chance to hold a thunderbolt and play around with one for 30mins and i was truly amazed. This device was STUPID FAST and very snappy and i was truly amazed at the time and effort htc put into this device. The sense ui was snappy the dnla feature was refreshing to see and all the personalized features for lock screens and various scenes were much new. I had the chance to compare it to an htc inspire 4g and it was amazing how close these devices both resembled eachother and the Desire Z. The only thing missing from the Thunderbolt that the Inspire 4g had was htc likes and htcsense.com and I can’t figure out why that was missing. I was very impressed with the thunderbolt and i can say that yes it is better than the granddaddy of 4g my beloved Htc Evo 4g 11months worth of better. Customers on Verizon should be proud they have a great device to support android. My fellow Evo owners on sprint we had our day June 2010 to March 2011 being on top now that belongs to the Thunderbolt on Verizon. Our new member to the Evo family on sprint will be born soon then we will see who’s best again. Hats off to the thunderbolt.

        Then you went on to call it “Thunderdud” and Verizon “The Devil” and claimed that they were both “useless”.
        Try this out sometime: get hold of a Thunderbolt and a GNex, set them both on 3G and see which one does voice and data. As for these claims of 3 hour battery life, it is readily apparent that you’ve never actually used one, you just seen someone post that, and you parroted it (like everything you post). I had a GNex, I took it back. The only thing it had “going for it” (not really) was Android 4.0, which is rapidly becoming the Windows Vista of Android, unfortunately. I’d try to explain why this is the case, but you don’t know the difference between the words “rather” and “whether”, so it would be far more constructive for me to try to teach a boog like yourself proper English – which is impossible.

  14. I think it’s a wise choice by Samsung. Gotta put your best foot first and that Exynos 5250 would be it.

  15. Can’t wait but I would like a really nice stock android phone. The galaxy nexus is awesome but could be better

  16. Man this phone looks awesome. Samsung is making some sweet looking phones. Cant wait for lte phones from samsung from sprint.
