Samsung is preparing to unveil new Galaxy and Ativ devices during the Samsung Premiere 2013 event. The information comes from their official announcement at Samsung Mobile Press, where some details about Premiere 2013 are also revealed.
The event will take place on Thursday, June 20th at Earls Court in London. 18:00 is when the company will open the doors, but the event itself is slated to begin at 19:00. Meanwhile, Samsung and tech fans in general may catch the livestreaming feed of the unveiling at Samsung’s official Youtube page at www.youtube.com/SamsungMobile.
No other details were disclosed by the announcement, but sections of images of three devices were previewed in the teaser poster. Those familiar with Samsung products will know that Galaxy is Samsung’s brand name for its Android-based smartphones and tablets while Ativ pertains to its Windows-based devices.
It is possible that Samsung’s unveiling would include the Galaxy S4 Mini. The smaller version of Samsung’s Android flagship smartphone for this year has been much rumored, and has been expected to be released sometime in July. A few days ago, the Galaxy S4 Mini was even spotted in an alleged leak on Samsung’s apps page in the United Kingdom. Its appearance on said page fuelled the speculation that the South Korean electronics giant is preparing for a European launch of the device.
Meanwhile, Samsung’s Ativ device may be a follow-up to last year’s Ativ S smartphone, which was based on Windows Phone. The Ativ S, it would be remembered did not meet the success it set out to gain. Currently, Nokia is still recognized as the more popular phone company that makes phones based on Windows Phone OS.
It bears mentioning that Samsung Premiere 2013 is scheduled a week after the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, which will be held on June 10 to 14 in San Francisco, California. The Samsung event likewise precedes Microsoft BUILD Conference, which takes place on June 26 to June 28 at The Moscone Center.
