Though many assumed that the Samsung Galaxy S III would be unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we can hang up any hopes of that happening. The event seemed like the logical place to host a coming out party for the successor to the Galaxy S II, the flagship handset revealed at the global trade show a little over a year ago, but uncertainty arose after Samsung executives suggested they were still reviewing the possibility. Samsung has confirmed in a statement released to TechRadar that we will have to wait for a separate event to get our first official glimpse at the GS3. Yes, the phone is just too big of a deal to have to share floor space with Samsung’s other new devices. That or the latest Galaxy S device isn’t quite ready to greet the public. Here is the full note from Samsung:

“Samsung is looking forward to introducing and demonstrating exciting new mobile products at Mobile World Congress 2012. The successor to the Galaxy S2 smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product.”
