Samsung’s highly anticipated follow up to the Galaxy S II was all but confirmed for an April launch. The South Korean manufacturer has taken to Twitter to shoot down rumors once more. The company said that previous speculation around the launch date are untrue and “once a specific launch date [is available] we will notify you via Twitter first.” Samsung also reached out to The Verge and informed the website that the device will be revealed in the first half of 2012. “The successor to the GALAXY S II smartphone will be unveiled in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product,” the company said. “We cannot confirm the detailed information at the moment.” BGR reported exclusive details about the Samsung Galaxy III a few weeks ago, including the fact that it will feature a beautiful 4.8-inch 1080p display, ceramic case, and much more.
