Samsung''''s Galaxy SIII will be unveiled as the official phone of the London Olympics, according to online reports.

The reports also suggest that the device, to be launched at London''''s Earl''''s Court on May 3, will also include several colours and a ceramic body, The Telegraph reports.

However, Samsung has officially refused to confirm whether the announcement is related to a much-anticipated forthcoming phone or to a range of new devices.

Samsung has already confirmed that it will make an Olympics-themed phone.

Any phone related to the Olympics would be expected to include the facility for contactless payment as Visa, global sponsor and partner of the Paralympic Games, also sponsor the Games with Samsung.

The two companies announced a partnership in April last year.

Rumours suggest that there could be a slight increase to the size of the screen size, enlarging Galaxy''''s SII 4.3" screen to 4.6" and using HD in 1080p.

The device could have an improved camera, possibly up to 16 megapixels, and wireless charging has also been mentioned as a possibility.

The invitation for the event reads simply "Come and meet the next Galaxy", and gives details of the location of the next "Samsung Unpacked" event.

A number of leaked images of Samsung Galaxy SIII phone have emerged online, but none of the images have been confirmed as genuine.

Samsung''''s Galaxy SII has been the most popular Android phone, and a lot is being expected from its successor Galaxy SIII at the event.
