If rumors are to be believed, Samsung’s next smartphone, the eagerly anticipated Galaxy S3, could arrive as soon as this weekend, probably on March 30.

UK-based retailer ‘Phones 4 U’ has only recently changed the appearance of its Oxford Street branch and has covered the store’s windows with the Samsung logo and an almost certain announcement saying “Coming 30.03.2012.”

If we can recall correctly, “Phones 4 U” was also the exclusive UK retailer for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and now it may have yet again picked up its second big Samsung product in less than a year.

The Galaxy S3, thus far, has been making rounds on the Internet with a host of rumored specifications while no real information about the device’s release date was available. The company itself has not released a clear statement as to when the smartphone will hit the store shelves, and now “Phone 4 U” is also being secretive about the launch. Some sources have mentioned that the Samsung-made smartphone will not arrive as late as April or May.

However, there are a few Samsung products in line that could also adopt such a marketing strategy, such as the Galaxy Beam, Galaxy Note 10.1, and the Galaxy Pocket. But again, no tentative release dates have been announced for any of them.

The rumored date could also be for another variant of the Galaxy Tab series, with the expected arrival of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 or even the Galaxy Tab 11.6. It is expected that no mid-range product would demand a promotion of such a large scale.

However, everything will be made clear once the weekend arrives.
