With many products from various manufacturers already said to be arriving in what’s shaping up to be an explosive next few months, Samsung has voluntarily added itself to the fray by notifying the guys over at TheVerge of a significant Galaxy announcement on August 15th.
Typically, no further details have been disclosed at this point, giving us a free pass to speculate on what it could be. With the Galaxy S III having only been out a few weeks and still finding its feet, we’re inclined to think the Korean company is planning a tablet rather than a smartphone, or at the very least, a new Galaxy Note. It’s not as though the prospect of a new Galaxy smartphone is beyond the realms of possibility, but with the tablet scene garnering much coverage at this point in time, now would be as good a moment as any to drop another option under the noses of consumers.
The Galaxy Note, which is something of a unique product given its "phablet" status, has been a surprising success, offering consumers a happy median, it would seem, between smartphone and tablet. With the Nexus 7 about to hit the market, and many, many murmurs of a so-called iPad Mini, a new Galaxy Note – perhaps the Galaxy Note 10.1 showcased at MWC’12 – would certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons.
The Galaxy Note 2 is also a relative possibility, although that particular device is expected to be announced soon after at Berlin’s IFA conference, as was the case last year with the current Galaxy Note device.
Aside from the Galaxy Note 10.1, we’re pretty stumped for ideas as to what else Samsung might have in store, but as I mentioned earlier, it only adds more spice to the slew of new devices purported and promised between now and the end of the year.
