Now, what’s interesting is that the phone’s display shows March 22nd – supposedly the announcement date. Here’s where it starts smelling fishy – suddenly the font is too big, and the notifications panel below is also too vague, as if it was all quickly put together in Photoshop. This tips the scales for us – the render probably fake, but we leave it up to you to weigh in on the image.
It’s clear, though, that we all want the Samsung Galaxy S III to come sooner rather than later. Just yesterday, tech insider Eldar Murtazin dropped the rumor bomb by saying Samsung has finalized the product design and is bringing the SGS III with a ceramic finish.
It’s also obvious that Samsung wants to be better prepared for the launch this time. Last year, it launched the SGS II in April internationally, but stateside the handset arrived with a huge delay. Carriers only started getting it in mid-September, so there was not much time it was on sale and it’s still selling great. A look at the calendar of major events for 2012 reminds us that Samsung is one of the big sponsors for the Summer Olympics kicking off in late July. If we were to build our own conspiracy theory about the next Galaxy S, that would be an ideal coincidence for the launch, don’t you agree?
