Samsung has sure been busy lately. We just got done telling you about one of the company’s new handsets to arrive at the FCC, just one of several to recently become certified. Then there are the runaway sales figures for the Galaxy S III, and the rumors we’ve been hearing of a Galaxy Note 2 announcement due in late August. Now we’ve got one more bit of Samsung news to look forward do, upon the company announcing plans to reveal a new Galaxy model on August 15.
What might Samsung be working on? Considering the proximity of August 15 to when were expecting the Note 2 to be announced, just before the start of the IFA in Berlin, we have to consider that Samsung may have decided to move-up that unveiling.
It’s been a while since we learned of any progress on new tablets from Samsung, so maybe that’s what it’s planning for August 15. On the other hand, it’s been struggling with lawsuits related to the Galaxy Tab series (not that its smartphones have been immune), so perhaps that’s not the most likely direction to head.
For all we know, this SCH-I415 we just learned of could be the new Galaxy model, but it feels a bit soon for this to be “just” smartphone news. After all, the Galaxy S III is still fresh on everyone’s mind, so why come out with another Android phone; at least the Note 2 would be different enough, what with its S Pen stylus, to warrant some individual attention.
