Samsung might be keeping a relatively low profile at this year’s Mobile World Congress, but it’s shaken things up with a seriously cheekily timed announcement.
Not to be outdone by potentially limelight-hogging rivals like Huawei, Samsung has fired out email invites for a New York-based Unpacked event on March 14. And we all know what that means, right?
Around a week ago, we were told that the Samsung Galaxy S IV launch would “definitely” go down on March 14, and that claim seems to have been bang on the proverbial money.
Indeed, one particular Unpacked poster rocks the tagline “READY 4 THE SHOW”. Get it? Samsung Galaxy S IV?
Rumoured Samsung Galaxy S IV specs include an octo-core Exynos 5 Octa processor, 4.99in display and Jelly Bean (Android 4.2), and – as I was saying at the weekend – something called Samsung Orb, which is, er, pretty much the same as Photo Sphere.
Getting back to Samsung’s apparent cheekiness, we’re learning – via Engadget – that Team South Korea is in fact handing out paper invites over in Barcelona.
It’s another slap in the face for the organisers of Mobile World Congress, with HTC having opted to launch its flagship HTC One at a separate event just six days before the Barcelona conference.
