Samsung invite points to Galaxy S III intro in London, May 3

Samsung has issued invitations to what it calls Samsung Mobile Unpacked, in London, on May 3rd. It's expected that this press event will be the unveiling of the company's next generation flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy S III.

The invitation says "Come and Meet the Next Galaxy." We assume that means Galaxy S III, not another Galaxy Tab.

Samsung made the conscious decision to skip any introduction of the Galaxy S III at the 2012 Mobile World Congress in late February, instead saying it would launch the device at a dedicated event in the first half of this year.

That said, there have been leaks about the phone, although whether or not they actually pan out remains to be seen. The Samsung Galaxy S III is expected to sport a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display, the same size as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, as well as the company’s own quad-core Exynos processor running at 1.5GHz.

The device will also carry Ice Cream Sandwich.  Earlier rumors also said that the device might have as much as 2GB of RAM.

Aside from those leaks, Samsung also recently quashed rumors that it was going to add a 3D display to its upcoming handsets, saying it had no "immediate" plans to do so, which keeps open the possibility that it might do so in the future.
