Will The Galaxy S III Be The Official Smartphone Of The 2012 Olympics?

As we prepare ourselves for the inevitable crush of news (and rumors) leading up to the Galaxy S III launch event, a new story claims the GSIII will be the official phone of the London 2012 Summer Olympics. BGR reports that an inside source has advised them to expect a “huge” international roll-out for the GSIII as the device debuts as the official smartphone of the 2012 Summer Olympics. The Olympic rumor would explain¬†why Samsung is choosing to hold the event in London, rather than New York, Seoul, Dubai or alternative locations.

The source also indicates a 16GB and 32GB model, 1080p HD display, quad-core Exynos processor and 4G LTE. We assume (safely so) that HSPA+¬† models will also be available, hopefully with the quad-core processor intact. The Galaxy S III is said to come in two color options, one in blue and black, and a second in white. Also rumored is a physical home button in the middle of the device under the display, although the GSIII won’t make use of the on-screen navigation buttons Google introduced in Android 4.0.

Take this news for what it’s worth. There is still plenty of time for more rumors to materialize.
