    Just saw this on Techradar and Engadget too.

    If indeed the launch event is for the new SGS3, I wonder how long it will be until it is available to purchase by mere mortals such as me...

    Can we get the title changed to something a little more useful?

    Now all I need is the OFFICIAL specs of the Ascend Quad D XL to be announced, and I can make my choice.

    1X
    SGS3
    Ascend.

    Its an annual thing for me when I run back to Androidforums. When the Galaxy series tries to top itself , and the Nexus line. This is going be fun. I need to update my info by the way ;)

    The only thing that worries me is this could be any phone....the "next galaxy"

    could just be the next in the Galaxy line, not the S3

    They wouldn't send out press invitation like this for just another mediocre phone release. I'm pretty sure this is about GSIII.

    Yeah, regardless of what they decide to name it, this is going to be the phone we expected to be called the SGS3. There'd be no reason for the secrecy and the extravagant launch date if otherwise.

    Who cares if they decide to tweak the name a bit as long as its still the same phone? And frankly, just because it says "The Next Galaxy" doesn't 100% mean the name will be changed at all.

    Just my thoughts

    Just can't wait for my first Android phone. Have been glued to this SG3 article for quite awhile. Also nearly bought the Galaxy Note but told myself to just HANG ON.

    Hopefully the phone will come earlier but I was starting to suspect a September 3 launch.... S3, it's a little over 3 months away, I'm expecting August, but 3 days into September isn't so bad is it? just to make the naming connection.

    I wanted to guess the announcement date being on the 3rd based on that guy's twitter about going to London on the 2nd, but due to the large amount of wolf crying that's been going on with S3 speculation I just figured it was another guy trying to be smug and cause a stir and get some attention, unfortunately (and fortunately!), it really was the wolf this time.

    I actually read an article that Samsung learned their lesson last time around, and this time us regular folks in the US might not be too far down the road.

    Also, quick question. How far is the release date after an announcement like this usually?

    That all depends on Samsung & the carriers.

    I'm excited about the hd samoled, but want to see if they finally put good radios in the phone yet. aside from that I have no reason to upgrade. Cant imagine a phone muh faster than the S2.
