Samsung says no to MWC Galaxy S III launch

No Barcelona debut for next-gen blower

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Samsung is emailing World+Dog to say that it won't be announcing the Galaxy S III at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) industry shindig later this month.

Instead, "the successor to the Galaxy S II smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product", the flack-penned missive reveals.

The S III popped up on the rumour mill late last month, pegged for an April release. It's said to sport a quad-core processor and a 12Mp camera, and to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The release date implied a launch at MWC, though later whispers suggest that was not the case. That has now been confirmed by Samsung. ®
