August is shaping up to have the potential to be an interesting month for Samsung, with expectations that it will announce any of several highly anticipated Androids. We’ve mentioned before how the company is planning another of its Unpacked events for immediately before this year’s IFA in Berlin gets started at the tail-end of the month. With invitations to the event now going out, can we spot any clues here as to just what Samsung might be planning to unveil?
Earlier, we had heard that the Galaxy Note 2 might be on the agenda for Unpacked, but then news of another Samsung event, this one scheduled for mid-month, arrived alongside the rumor that the Note 2 would make its debut then, instead.
It’s not unusual for companies sending out invites to events like this to drop a few hints about what they could have in the works. While no one’s yet found any special meaning to the “magical moments” text, there’s a good deal of speculation that the wand image there is supposed to represent an S-pen stylus. We’re not sure if that’s reading too much into things, but if that is true, the use of the light bloom emerging from the box to created a faded, tapered-looking end to the wand could be a nice subliminal touch.
The Note 2′s not the only stylus-based Samsung in the pipes, with the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet also just about to arrive. Frankly, both models would make a lot of sense as the star of either one of these events, leaving us at a bit of a loss. From what we’ve seen, at least, the Note 10.1 has seemed farther along, and nearly ready to hit retail, so maybe that will take the mid-August spot, with the Note 2 waiting for the end of the month? Any other theories?
