Only a few months after Samsung launched its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung has revealed that it will hold a “Galaxy and Ativ” launch event in the UK on 20 June, where it’s likely to unveil its next generation smartphones and laptops.
The invitation that the firm posted on its website gives little away about what we can expect from the “Samsung Premier 2013” event.
However, Samsung does give some clues by saying that the event will be focused on its Galaxy and Ativ brands, so we can assume we’ll be seeing both Android and Windows Phone devices at the upcoming event.
There’s a chance we could see a new Galaxy Note smartphone and perhaps a refresh of the company’s Galaxy tablet line. Over the past few years, Samsung has been increasingly focused on its Note tablet lineup, but the company could potentially refresh its Galaxy Tab slates with a lower price to compete with other cheap Android tablets.
We are also likely to see the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, which Samsung leaked this weekend by listing the handset on its UK website. This, if speculation is to be believed, will look nearly identical to the Samsung Galaxy S4, except for its smaller 4.3in touchscreen and a downsized 8MP camera.
As for Ativ, Samsung’s brand for all of its Windows devices, we could potentially see Samsung explore new tablet and Ultrabook designs. Its Ativ smart PCs sport removable screens, so they can function as both tablets and notebooks. At this point, I’m excited to see what Samsung comes up with for the Windows 8 Ultrabook ecosystem.
If you’re interested in seeing what Samsung has planned, check back with us on the 20th of June for the details!
