Samsung has confirmed that the follow-up device to the very popular Galaxy S II will not be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress. A report in Tech Radar states that “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. Samsung stays committed to providing the best possible mobile experiences for customers around the world.”
Disappointing? Certainly. We all wanted to see that powerhouse device, which is rumoured to come with Android OS 4.0, quad-core processor and a Super AMOLED HD display, but Samsung noted that there’ll be a “separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year”… so something bigger is at play here. In the meantime we’ll have to see what’s planned for MWC and what these “exciting new mobile products” are – probably a new sized Galaxy Tab.
