Already 10m Samsung Galaxy S3 Preordered?

An intriguing tweet released by Eldar Murtazin, the editor of Russian mobile website,, and one of the more respected pundits out there, mentioned that channel partners had already managed to ship/sell more than 10 million Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone even though the phone has yet to be launched.

Given that the iPhone 4S sold four million units in the first weekend, including the preorders, 10 million is a mighty impressive figure if true.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 was expected to launch at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February (which didn't happen), then at an event in Amsterdam (which also didn't happen), then in London on the 30th (which turned out to be untrue) and now the next release date is set for May.

The handset - which will replace the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Galaxy Note as the company's flagship product - is expected to run on a quad core processor, possibly from Samsung itself or from Nvidia, up to 2GB RAM, a 4.8-inch full HD (that's 1920 by 1080 pixels), NFC capabilities, a ceramic package, wireless charging and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
