No Australian Galaxy S III Launch Plans Yet

Samsung’s Galaxy S II is the most popular Android phone in Australia, so it’s not surprising that interest in its successor is high. Disappointingly, however, Samsung hasn’t got any official launch plans for the Galaxy S III in Australia yet.

As Alex over at Gizmodo reports (fresh from live-blogging today’s London launch event), Samsung has not set a launch date in Australia for the phone. The 3G version will launch on May 29 in Europe, and it seems safe to assume that grey importers such as Expansys and Kogan will be selling it to Australians soon after that. But for an “official” local version (or one supporting Australia’s 4G spectrum), it looks like we’re going to have to wait a while.
