Rumours suggest Samsung's fabled follow up to the perennially popular Galaxy S2 is set to make its debut at 2012's Mobile World Conference (MWC).

As well as prophesying the, currently fictional, device's MWC appearance, Korean site ETNews also alleged to have knowledge of the Galaxy S3's tech spec. Specifically ETNews reported that the S3 would be powered by an impressive quad-core Exynos chipset - meaning the device would be blazingly fast.

Additionally, not letting a lack of official word from Samsung get in the way, ETNews went on to report that the device would house a Super AMOLED Plus 720p display, LTE connectivity, 2GB of RAM and - as if this wasn't enough - run off Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

News of Samsung's next iPhone-killer originally broke in October, just before the company unveiled the Galaxy Nexus smartphone.

The speculation stemmed from a "leaked" internal Samsung presentation slide published on Android site Phandroid. According to the site the slide confirmed that the S3 would pack an impressive 4.6 inch screen and speedy 1.8 GHz quad-core processor. Also, like ETNews, the slide similarly alleged that the Galaxy S3 would house a powerful 12-megapixel camera and boast 2GB of RAM.

Unfortunately, despite Android fans' high-hopes, Samsung is yet to confirm the Galaxy S3's existence, let alone release date and tech spec -- making the reports questionable at best. At the time of writing Samsung had not responded to the International Business Times UK's requests for comment.
