We heard about a week ago that Samsung decided it was not appropriate timing to announce the Samsung Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress 2012 – an announcement that came as a disappointment to many. The primary motive for doing so was that Samsung wanted the product to be available for launch shortly after an announcement and not suffer long delays in key markets (i.e. Galaxy S II in America).
Today, we learned that Samsung will not even host a press conference during MWC, which certainly comes as a surprise since Samsung usually has emphatic press conferences. However, it does make sense because Samsung does not want to waste everyone’s time announcing products that will not appeal to the majority of consumers. Without having a flagship device of the Galaxy S III’s magnitude, Samsung will not host a press conference, but instead introduce products at the trade show.
Since MWC 2012 will not see the announcement of the Galaxy S III or another flagship worthy device from Samsung, chances are most people will be interested in future Samsung dedicated events, but we will cover any and all products Samsung does announce at MWC 2012.
