While CES, MWC and IFA are the traditional hosts of most major smartphone unveilings nowadays, Samsung and Apple usually choose to stay out of the mass events in order to maximize their shining moments and show off their mojo.
We can’t remember an iPhone (or an iPad, for that matter) which hasn’t been shown off to the world in an exclusive press conference organized by Apple, while Samsung’s “Unpacked” events from last year have introduced the Galaxy S3, Note 2 and Note 10.1.
With that in mind, we were a bit surprised to hear that Samsung’s Galaxy S4 was going to be unveiled at CES or MWC. After all, why would the S4 be more (or less?) special than its predecessor? Well, as it happens it won’t and the new super-phone will miss MWC in February after also being a no-show at CES this month.
That’s as official as it gets, coming straight from JK Shin, head of Samsung Mobile Communications. Unfortunately, Shin hasn’t been kind enough to let us know when we should expect the S4 to actually make its debut, but the latest rumors point at a new Unpacked event happening in March. That would most likely see the new phone released by April, which would be a month sooner than last year’s S3. True or false, what do you think?
