    Galaxy S III launch in China could move up to April says Samsung China President


    The above is a concept render, and may not be indicative of the final product.

    According to several reports out of Korean news agencies, Samsung's President of Operations in China, Kim Young-Ha, has been quoted saying that the Galaxy S III could see its launch date moved up from May to April in China. Even though it may be a bit before Europe and the U.S. see the phone released, this is still good news because it means that they have probably almost finished the device.

    Kim Young-Ha made these statements while speaking to the Beijing press about Samsung's broader strategy in China. He indicated that Samsung's plans will become more aggressive to pursue an even greater market share. It seems that Samsung wants to solidify their already massive lead in the Chinese market over the iPhone and everyone else. This make a lot of sense in China where the smartphone market is still young and growing rapidly.

    Obviously in the over-saturated market of the U.S., this strategy would be a waste as we have seen with Motorola. More than likely, Samsung will wait a while to bring it to the United States. How long do you think it will take to bring the SGS3 to the States?

    I'm betting holiday time. Honestly, we're going to get screwed on the phone not being on Verizon and not coming out any time soon.

    I don't think there has been any confirmed information on which carriers will get this device just yet. I don't think that VZW will pass on this one. The only reason they didn't take the SGS2 was because they got the first dibs on the G-Nex. I am going to stick my neck out on a limb here and prognosticate that Europe will see the SGS3 sometime in the summer, maybe a month or two after China, then the U.S. will get it in the fall, a month or two after that.

    If you're correct, it will come out on Verizon just in time for my upgrade this fall!

    I would hope not, seeing as how AT&T is also going with LTE.

    I believe I heard sprint is also starting to work on 4g lte so a processor that doesn't play well with lte is not a very good idea anymore
