Samsung Galaxy S III to be unveiled on May 3rd?

Korean giant sends out invitations to London launch event for ‘the next Galaxy’

We’ve been waiting for what seems like an age for Samsung to finally reveal the successor to the Galaxy S II – and now it seems we have a date to look forward to: May 3rd.

According to Engadget, Samsung has started sending out invites to a May 3rd event in London. The invitation doesn’t mention the Samsung Galaxy S III by name – and for all we know it may end up being called something else – but does exhort recipients to “Come and meet the next Galaxy”. We’d wager our house, your house and your uncle’s house that it’s the S II’s follow-up we’ll be seeing them pull the wrappers off. The event will be streamed live on Facebook, according to the invite.

The Galaxy S III (or whatever it’s going to be called) is probably the most highly-anticipated Android phone around at the moment, and the internet has been speculating about its specs, features and design for months. Check out our rumour round-up for some of the possibilities.
