Sources from South African carrier Cell C claim that the device won’t see the light of day until summer.
Mybroadband.co.za cites insi9ders alleging that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be released in July.
Initial reports claimed that the handset was to be launched at Mobile World Congress (MWC) that is held this weekend.
However, the company announced that the release date was scheduled for the second quarter of this year so that the smartphone would benefit from a simultaneous global release, similar to the Galaxy S and Galaxy S2.
The fact that Samsung postpones the release date to July has made many assume that it has to do with its legal battle with Apple.
