Samsung Galaxy S3 'landing first half of 2012', Bada tablets ruled out

The fourth iteration of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy phone is scheduled for release during the first half of next year, the phone maker’s mobile head honcho has revealed.

JK Chin, head of Samsung Mobile, has also told the Wall Street Journal that Galaxy 4G (in 10.1 and 8.9 flavours) tablets are in the works, sporting the super fast network connectivity that their moniker implies. In the US at least, anyway – the fact that we’re stuck on 3G means you shouldn’t hold your breath for them on this side of the Pond.

In news that’s unlikely to surprise anyone, Chin also threw his continued support behind Google’s Android platform for future tablets in the fast-expanding Galaxy family and apparently ruled out slates powered by Sammy’s proprietary Bada platform, which has yet to emulate its success in Asia in the European market.

News of his remarks comes as Samsung announced that the S2 has sold one million units in its South Korea alone. That’s not too shabby, considering it’s been out but a month.
