Rumors continue to pile up as to when we’ll see the Samsung Galaxy S III launch, but it appears a source that should definitely be in the know is now pegging it for April.

Speaking with Samsung’s marketing and advertising agency Cheil WorldwideZDNet Korea has learned that the agency is preparing for an April debut of the Galaxy S III.  Apparently the big push is going to be in the U.K., one of the launch territories for the follow-up to the ultra-popular Galaxy S II line.  This is partially planned due to the impending Summer 2012 Olympics to be held in and around London, giving them the perfect opportunity to raise awareness for the phone with people from all over the world.

When we learned that the phone would not debut at Mobile World Congress, the only hint we were given to a launch date was there would be a dedicated press event in the first half of the year.  Well, April falls in that time frame, and it also happens to line up with another rumor we heard back in January.  Perhaps April truly will be when this highly anticipated phone will finally see its big debut.

Despite its oddball proportions the Samsung Galaxy Note phoneblet has manged to be quite popular among those with big hands (and pockets). The first million mark was passed in just two months after the launch of the device and now two months later since that event, the Galaxy Note has crossed the 2 million mark.

Of course, these are not the actual sales but merely the number of devices that have been shipped till date but nonetheless it’s quite an achievement for a device in a fairly new category that a lot of people believe shouldn’t exist in the first place. In comparison, however, Samsung managed to ship over 10 million Galaxy S II in the first five months. And let’s not even get into comparison with the iPhone 4S, which Samsung often chooses to mock in its ads, that sold 4 million units in just over the weekend after its launch.

However, Samsung has much higher expectations from the Galaxy Note. Talking to Forbes, it has revealed that it intends to ship another 10 million units before the end 2012
