Samsung will be holding a press conference in France on March 22nd, however it will not be unveiling the highly anticipated Galaxy S III smartphone at that event. Since the South Korean company announced the event, numerous outlets reported that the next-generation handset would be the focus. The French event, however, will concentrate on the company’s existing product portfolio, a Samsung representative confirmed to The Next Web.

The Galaxy S III is rumored to be 7 millimeters thick, and will supposedly feature a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front camera, a Super AMOLED Plus display and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
