Samsung’s countdown for the so-called ‘Next Galaxy’ has finally come to an end and the mystery reveal turned out to be a teaser video that takes yet another swipe at Apple aficionados.
The clip shows the camera rapidly zooming out from our fair planet into the vastness of the Milky Way Galaxy, accompanied by a series of chest-thumping marketing slogans and a rousing soundtrack that build up to a climax that few of us could have predicted.
Instead of revealing anything about the handset, the video suddenly switches to footage of a bunch of sheep – yes, actual sheep – and the message: “With technology that fits in this easily, you can now stand out from…”, which in our view is clearly a dig at dedicated iFans who’ve queued up without fail for each new iPhone launch to date.
It then ends with the date for the Samsung Unpacked event, due to take place in London on May 3rd and now a dead cert to be the venue where the handset will be finally unveiled.
Keep ‘em peeled for more Galaxy S3 news and announcements in the days to come.
