Samsung’s new Galaxy S3 (SIII) is to be unveiled in London because it is to be the official phone of the Olympics, according to reports.
Although Samsung has refused to officially confirm whether the announcement relates to a much anticipated forthcoming phone or to a range of new devices, the launch at London’s Earl’s Court will, nonetheless, be the closest Google’s Android operating system comes to an event on the scale of an Apple launch.
The expectation is that the evening event on 3 May will at least include the successor to the popular SII phone, although the name has not been confirmed, but that it could also include a range of other products that build on the success of popular Samsung devices such as the Galaxy Note small tablet.
Unconfirmed rumours include a slight increase to the screen size of the product, enlarging the SII’s 4.3” screen to 4.6” and using HD in 1080p. Such an increase could be due to an “edgeless” design, rather than to an enlarged overall device. An improved camera, possibly up to 16megapixels, is also a possibility, and wireless charging has also been mentioned as a possibility.
The invitation for the event reads simply “Come and meet the next Galaxy”, and gives details of the location of the next “Samsung Unpacked” event.
