Samsung Galaxy S III set to launch in April, announcement coming this month

The wait is on.

The Samsung Galaxy S II was arguably the best smartphone of 2011, with its super sized display, beefed up specs, and various model builds including the Galaxy Nexus for Verizon Wireless. While the S II was announced at Mobile World Congress in February 2011 only to launch a few months later, Samsung decided to hold off on announcing the follow-up Galaxy S III until closer to the device’s launch.

A report from¬†ZDNet Korea¬†indicates that the wait may soon be over. According to the report, Samsung will be showing off the Galaxy S III sometime this month, with the device set to go on sale in April. If previous rumors hold up, we should see the S III launched simultaneously in 50 major networks, perhaps including the United States. As you might recall, the Galaxy S II launched in the U.S. several months after it launched around the world, so hopefully we’ll be able to get our hands on the S III at the same time as our neighbors across the pond this time around.

The rumored Galaxy S III specs include:

  • 4.8″ Super AMOLED HD Plus display – perhaps up to 1080p
  • Quad-Core Exynos 4412 processor with ARM Mali-400 GPU
  • 8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front-facing camera
  • 4G LTE support
  • Ceramic casing
  • Android 4.0

Obviously, this device is at the top of our must-have list, and will likely become the best smartphone of 2012. We’ll bring you more details as they’re announced by Samsung. Stay tuned!
