Vodafone has stepped up to the plate and opened the registration page for the "Next Samsung Galaxy", before the device has even been launched.

A page on the company's website - simply using the "next Galaxy" terminology we've seen elsewhere in the build-up to the new Samsung Galaxy device - invites customers or potential customers to plug in their details, with the promise of receiving all the news as it happens.

This isn't unheard of, but rarely do we see a carrier offering details on a yet-to-be-announced device in this way. That might suggest that the new Samsung Galaxy smartphone will be launching as a Vodafone exclusive, but there's no real evidence for that yet.

We've had 24 hours of Samsung Galaxy S III teasing, first Samsung launching their countdown website on Sunday, which today unveiled a teaser video for their next Galaxy and poked fun at iSheep, something that hasn't been received too well.

Pocket-lint will be at the launch event on 3 May 2012. Until that time, sit back, indulge yourself in the hype and we'll bring you all the news when it actually breaks. Let's hope it's worth the wait.

If you can't wait, why not check out our round-up of all the specs, rumours and leaks for the Samsung Galaxy S III?

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
