We expected Samsung to beat the crowd in introducing its 2016 “spring” flagship. All we were doing was debating how early. We heard musings of the chaebol trying to find space in Las Vegas in time for CES next month. But we’ve kept listening to Korean sources that have said that Samsung will reserve itself for February.
Well, one of the shoes dropped today as Samsung gave out invitations to its Tuesday press conference at CES. We don’t know what’s on the playbill for the event, but given the Consumer Electronics Show’s wide showcase of products and that Samsung makes TVs and refrigerators, too, we have reason to still be doubtful of a Galaxy S7 launch at the presser.
Besides, it’d ruin the whole Samsung Unpacked hooplah it’s built up for a while now.
