Will the Samsung Galaxy S3 be hitting our shores in April?

Samsung could start selling its new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S3, in the UK in April according to an article published by ZDNet's Korean news outlet.

The handset was rumoured to be launched in February at Mobile World Congress but instead, it is likely that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will come on the 15th of March after Sammobile received an invite for a press event to be held in Amsterdam.

ZDNet quotes an anonymous source that doesn't want to be named and reported that a marketing team from Samsung Group was sent to the UK in order to prepare for the launch event of the new smartphone.

Samsung could use the forthcoming pre-buzz associated with the London Olympics - which will be held in July - and the fact that it is a worldwide partner of the Olympics games to amplify the launch of the Galaxy S3 when it rolls out.

The general consensus over the phone's hardware is that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will come with a quad core processor (either Nvidia Tegra 3 or the Samsung Exynos 4412), 2GB RAM, a 4.8-inch full HD (that's 1920 by 1080 pixels) capacitive display, a 12 megapixel camera and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
