Samsung China president says Galaxy S III launch may be moved up from May to April


Multiple reports out of Korea today cite Samsung Greater China President Kim Young-Ha as saying that the launch of the company's next Android flagship phone, the Galaxy S III, may be moved up by a month, from May to April. Samsung previously denied a report that the Galaxy S II sucessor would launch in April, but the words of its most senior representative in China now indicate that the plan hasn't been finalized.

Kim Young-Ha had been speaking to the Beijing press about Samsung's broader strategy in China, which he says will become more aggressive and pursue an even greater market share. Accelerating the launch of the Galaxy S III would indeed fit into such a plan. In any case, it's good to finally hear from a named Samsung executive regarding the launch of the GS III, which will surely be happening within the next couple of months.
