The rumor mill is starting to provide more reliable information on the coming Galaxy S3 which now appears to be announced on May 22nd in London
The rumor mill around the coming Samsung Galaxy S3 is working overtime right now and everything that is found is passed along to keep us all informed. The latest one is the picture below which was posted by TheIntersect on Reddit yesterday and has created excitement for the coming phone. The date which is showing in the picture is May 22nd with London being the location for showing the weather which if correct gives you a date, a location and a time of 6:00 PM for the announcement. This even has the name of the PR firm in the lower right hand corner of Weber Shandwick who has offices in London.
All of this is quite interesting to see as it looks to be the first real indication that the Galaxy S3 is coming with a specific date. We have seen some fakes in the past where the screens have been changed but have been deemed to be incorrect. If this one is a fake, it is one of the far better ones out there. We know that the bezel is going to be reduced so the screen size could be increased or the size of the phone decreased. More than likely, we will be seeing the screen size increased given that the public wants larger screens.
The design on this one is far different than others we have seen mocked up. The bezel is reduced, but there is a white stripe across the top and bottom making this one stand out very nicely. It looks to be very thin which is what we have been hearing about this coming Galaxy S phone. We know that it will have a quad core processor and 4G LTE, but we do not know what Samsung is going to be doing for the battery and battery life concerns. The LTE battery drain issues are growing and if Samsung can address that with this coming smart phone, they will have an even bigger success than they did with the Galaxy S II.
Past rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S3 going to production appear to now be correct and moving forward. As others have said, this one looks to be real and if it is not, then someone has done an excellent job of fooling everyone. Based on what we are seeing, this one is coming soon. We can expect the Galaxy S3 to be released for sale some time in June.
