iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Samsung Galaxy S III Launch At MWC Still Under Review?

Korean phone manufacturer Samsung is apparently considering whether to release the successor to the Galaxy S II at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress event next month.

A report on thenextweb mentions a recording of the earning calls in which the company's SVP of Marketing, Younghee Lee, says that the company is still reviewing when to release the S III.

There have been a number of rumours circulating claiming that Samsung may not launch the S III at MWC, although it is more than likely to happen before summer.

Sources told The Next Web that the company may decide to launch its new flagship smartphone (and possibly other devices) at an event after the Mobile World Congress (and almost certainly after CeBIT as well).

By doing so, Samsung will emulate Apple, Nokia and Blackberry, which all have dedicated events to launch their devices.

Apple in particular has shunned the likes of MWC where the amount of "noise" and the presence of rivals make it difficult to stay in the limelight without distraction.

The device is said to be based on a quad core processor, possibly the Nvidia Tegra 3 and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1280x720 pixel resolution.
