We have some bad news for those waiting patiently for the Samsung Galaxy S III. Samsung has just sent out a tweet denying the recent rumors that the Galaxy S III would be unveiled this month and could show up in stores as early as April. According to Samsung, the launch details of the Galaxy S III have not yet been finalized, but once they are, details will be made available via Twitter.

Samsung also provided an official statement to The Verge which claims the phone will be unveiled in the first half of the year. The launguage Samsung uses is vague, leaving open the possibility that the phone could still be unveiled in March.

The successor to the GALAXY S II smartphone will be unveiled in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product. We cannot confirm the detailed information at the moment.Samsung

Rumors about the delayed Samsung Galaxy S III indicated that Samsung wanted to purposefully push back the launch date to shorten up the time delay between the global and US launch of the device. If that is the case, we could see Samsung push back the launch of the Galaxy S III to June so that the U.S. service providers have enough time to test the handsets on their 3G and 4G networks.

We know that Samsung has something really special planned for the S III, but we’re not sure how much longer the general public will be willing to wait once they see the new HTC One series hit store shelves in early April. How long are you willing to wait for the Samsung Galaxy S III?
