The Samsung Galaxy S III will launch worldwide as soon as April. The titillating news comes from Samsung’s marketing agency Cheil Worldwide – the most concrete evidence of a release date so far.
It means that the time between announcement and release will be excitingly short – similar to Apple's rumoured plans for the iPad 3.
For now we can look forward to some serious specs from the Galaxy S III including a quad-core Exynos processor, a 4.8in full HD edge-to-edge display on a 7mm thin ceramic body, a powerful camera possibly packing 16MP, and of course 4G LTE.
We expect Telstra to be the smartphone's Australian launch partner given its 4G LTE compatibility, though it could be Optus given its 2011 partnership with the Samsung Galaxy S II.
Samsung declined to comment on Australian availability.
