Galaxy S III launch could be bumped up to April, says Samsung China president


Though the folks at Samsung have previously denied rumors of an April launch for the Galaxy S III, one executive still sees it as a possibility. Kim Young-Ha, president of Samsung Greater China, says there is a possibility that the company’s next Android flagship could see its release moved up from May. Plans for the phone’s public availability have not been finalized.

Young-Ha’s comments were among the talking points presented to press in Beijing about Samsung’s desire to be more aggressive in the Chinese market and grow its share there. Whether or not an April release comes to fruition, we now have a Samsung executive on record stating that the phone will launch by May, a fact most assumed to be the case.
