And another update regarding the Samsung Galaxy S3 from our number one source Eldar Murtazin. According to Murtazin the Samsung Galaxy S3 has finished the stage of design and testing and has gone into mass production.
His tweet also reveals that operators and retailers are already preordering the Samsung Galaxy S3 at high volume. Which does seem logical after the huge success of the Samsung Galaxy S II and the problems Samsung faced when rolling out the S II in the states.
Eldar Murtazin also states that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will feature a ceramic casing, which we already talked about in previous posts. It will be interesting to see how this play’s out. Some people stated that the Samsug Galaxy S2 felt a bit cheap and easy to break.
With the use of a much stronger and durable material like ceramic this shouldn’t be the case anymore. However, ceramic does weigh more than plastic. Could this mean an increase in weight for the S III? Or has Samsung been able to decrease the weight of other components?
Samsung Galaxy S3 release date
Now we know the Samsung Galaxy s3 has gone into production the first question that comes to mind of course is, what does this say about the release date?
This question is hard to answer. What we do know is that Samsung wants to avoid the problems it faced with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S2 (not enough phones to meet the demand and the possibility of loosing customers that way) and will stock up millions of phones before they will start a global roll-out.
Our best guess is that the smartphone will be available before the Olympic games start at the end of July. As a major sponsor for the Olympics Samsung will use this event to promote the Samsung Galaxy S3 to the billions of viewers.
Murtazin is known for its great connections in the mobile industry, and almost always his news has been proven to be right. Lets hope he is right this time and a release of the S III is getting close!
