Despite the delay rumors Samsung went ahead and made the Galaxy S III official today for 28 countries — and despite today’s launch the phone is not quite available yet for many who are waiting for it. However, there was no word of a U.S. launch just yet and we hoped that Samsung has learned from its past mistakes with the Galaxy S II.
It appears that the South Korean company did indeed learn, at least according to TJ Kang, SVP Media Services for Samsung, who said that “unlike previous product launches, the time lag will be much more compressed for the Galaxy S III”. “So I think it will be available more or less globally within a month of the European release”, he added, which means that those in the States waiting for the phone might be seeing the Samsung flagship as soon as the end of June, beginning of July.
Other rumors have slated the U.S. Galaxy S III launch for June (and some event went specific with a June 20 date) so TJ Kang’s input on the matter seems to further hint that we don’t have to wait that long. The only question remaining is how much will the carriers tweak/customize the phone?
