London: After plenty of speculation Samsung has confirmed that it will unveil the next version of the Galaxy Note ‘phablet’ on August 29 at the media event arranged for German consumer electronics show IFA.
“We plan to unveil the next Galaxy Note at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on August 29,” a company spokesperson told Reuters.
While the comment doesn’t win any records for insight, it does confirm rumours that began when the firm distributed invitations to an event scheduled to take place at IFA, which has traditionally been a launchpad for a number of tech industry players.
Among the action last year, the show saw HTC unveil its Windows Phone-based Titan and Radar. Samsung itself unveiled three new phones at IFA 2011, including its first Galaxy Note – which passed 7 million sales this June.
