With 2012's Mobile World Conference (MWC) just around the corner, the International Business Times UK has trawled the cyber highways to give you the latest dish on Samsung's highly anticipated next series of products.

Despite high interest levels, reports suggest that Samsung's follow up to its popular Galaxy S2 smartphone won't be launching anytime soon.

According to The Verge, unnamed sources have confirmed that the Galaxy S3 will not be among the legion of new handsets announced at February's MWC.

Following the report, speculation moved on to suggest that the company would be unveiling a follow up to its affordable Galaxy S. According to Hardwarezone the new Galaxy S Advance will be a dual-core Android smart phone, featuring the same 4-inch, 480x800-pixel screen as seen on the original S.

Despite the two reports, hopes of an MWC S3 appearance are still alive for some. Prior to the naysayers' reports the presence of an unnamed smartphone in a Samsung Consumer Electronics Show promotional video had ignited S3 hopes.

The video was originally spotted by Italian fandroid site Android HD. Summing up Samsung's 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) offering, the feature showcases what appears to be a new slim handset.

Following the unnamed device's appearance, reports naming it as the Galaxy S3 erupted across numerous tech blogs, each issuing their own theories about its exact tech spec. One prominent theory doing its internet rounds is that the device will pack a super-charged new battery capable of lasting more than a day, even with heavy usage.

The improved battery rumours stemmed from Samsung's VP of product innovation, Kevin Packingham. Speaking to CNET at CES; the VP indicated that Samsung's 2012 smartphone line-up would all last at least one full day when fully charged.

Though unconfirmed, the rumour isn't beyond the realm of possibility. Both Apple's iPhone 4S and Nokia's Lumia 800 suffer from poor battery performance, meaning it is entirely possible Samsung may be planning to entice consumers to its future releases with an improved battery life offering.

As well as a new Galaxy smartphone the final big rumour regarding Samsung's MWC offering suggests the Korean tech giant will unveil a new tablet at 2012's conferance.

According to Android And Me Samsung's new Galaxy Tab will house the updated 2GHz Exynos 5250 processor everyone has been raving about. Additionally the tablet will pack a massive 10-inch-plus, 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution screen and run off Google's latest Ice Cream Sandwich Android version.

Unfortunately for those actually excited at the prospect of a new flagship Galaxy phone and tablet, Samsung are yet to release any official information on either device.
