We’ll be covering the Samsung Unpacked 2012 event here this evening in London where Samsung will finally unveil the next Galaxy S3 smartphone. Bookmark this page and share it with friends as we try to bring you live coverage tonight at 7pm (London) or 2am in Manila (May 4).
Note: We tried to coax our local rep for early details but they would not give us anything. They haven’t even seen the device too but already have some idea what “it can do”. Even the global press release is said to be encrypted until the official go signal has been given.
Remember the time: 7pm London (May 3), 2am Manila (May 4).
We’re now at Earl’s Court.
They won’t let us in until exactly 6pm.
