That’s right! Samsung sent out an exciting save-the-date, ahead of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, coming up in February. They’re planning on making a dramatic announcement, possibly introducing the newest line of Galaxy S products, February 13, at MWC. Displayed on www.samsungunpacked.com, a mysteriously fuzzy doodle carries the words “evolution is fate,” adjoining a pic from last year’s release of the Galaxy S smartphone.
The big February 13 announcement has the blogosphere roaring with rumors and theories as to what we can expect next month. Some point to the word “evolution” as a reference to LTE, or Long Term Evolution, hoping for a LTE 4G-worthy device.
In possibly related news, yesterday a sketch was released of a just-FCC-approved device, largely assumed to be the new Samsung Vibrant 4G. The model number, SGH-T959V, almost identically mimics that of the original Vibrant – SGH-T959. It also runs on AWS frequencies, owned by T-Mobile (the purveyor of Samsung’s Vibrant) furthering confidence that this device has been appropriately identified.
Will these two independent bulletins converge? Samsung’s offering an official teaser on February 1st, but we won’t know anything for sure until MWC. Just keep your fingers crossed!
