If you were hoping to hear something exciting from Samsung about the Galaxy S4 during the Mobile World Congress, you are going to be disappointed. The electronics giant is going to shut its mouth and not blurt out any secrets on their upcoming flagship device.
According to a source familiar with the company’s launch plans, the Korean electronics company would be hosting a separate event where the next device of the Galaxy S lineup would premier. The company, however, has decided to keep mum regarding this event.
Samsung’s Galaxy S4 has had its fair share of rumors and then some more, so it would be kind of befitting to have its own event where the device’s features are highlighted. Moreover, a solo event would garner more publicity than a collective one’s.
It was Apple who brought out the trend, and Samsung and Microsoft are seen following it. We saw BlackBerry launch its next-generation smartphone at their own event, and HTC is also set to host their own show before the MWC.
Samsung’s Galaxy S3 had its own event last year in Ma, just a few days before the CTIA Wireless Conference kicked off, which in turn turned out to be a subdued affair. Samsung is the world’s top smartphone manufacturer, thanks to their Galaxy franchise.
But with the launch of the Apple iPhone 5, they slipped down from the top spot in the US. The company hopes to regain the crown with their Galaxy S4.
