The Internationale Funkausstellung (or IFA, if you prefer) is the world’s largest trade show for consumer electronics and appliances of the home variety.
This year’s show takes place from September 2 to 7 in Berlin, and – as a tweet from Vlad Savov points out – Samsung is planning “something big”.
There’s an accompanying teaser video to go with Samsung’s claim, but unfortunately it’s much the same as the videos that preceded the Samsung Galaxy S II. Nothing to see here.
The video shows an array of trendoids sporting what we’re supposed to believe is a top-secret new Samsung smartphone, though in reality it’s probably an original Samsung Galaxy S, obscured with a bright golden glow.
If we take “big” literally, it could be one – or all – of a number of large handsets that recently popped up on a leaked Samsung roadmap. Supposedly Samsung has three sizeable Android smarthphones in the works, at 4.3in, 4.5in and 4.65in.
However, Samsung told us to take the roadmap with a pinch of salt, so… who knows?
We’ll find out for sure when IFA gets underway. Actually, Samsung appears to be doing its usual thing of unveiling goodies a day before the actual show opens i.e. September 1.
