The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the most eagerly anticipated phones of 2012 and yet more news about the phone has arisen, with a new model number appearing on Samsung's UAE Global Download Center page hinting at the phone's imminent arrival.
The website, which allows users to download various manuals, software and drivers for a host of Samsung products, now displays model number GT-I9300 under the smart phones menu.
This follows a trend, with the original Galaxy S bearing model numbers using GT-I90xx and the Galaxy S2 using GT-I91xx.
The Galaxy S3 would be expected to use the GT-I92xx range, but the Galaxy Nexus uses GT-I9250, so it makes sense for the S3 to start with GT-I9300.
Ready for release?
So does this mean that the Galaxy S3 is actually ready for launch, with Samsung prepping its websites before the big day?
Well your guess is as good as ours, but it adds another twist in the ongoing saga of will-it, won't-it be launched at MWC 2012.
The official line from Samsung is it's still reviewing various options regarding when to launch the Galaxy S3, so we are going to have to sit patiently and wait. Darn.
