Samsung’s plans to turn around its recent sales downturn came into sharper focus today, after a pair of leaks surfaced on a fansite.
A leaked press document sourced by Sam Mobile reveals that the phone-maker is set to hold an Unpacked event at the Berlin IFA on September 3rd – a matter of days before the iPhone 6 is reputed to make its debut.
And while there’s no mention of the Note 4 by name in the doc, Samsung has used the IFA tech expo as the launch venue for every iteration of its phablet so far. So it seems pretty unlikely it’s about to break with form now.
That’s an impression compounded by the site subsequently taking its news item down. Presumably after being asked to do so by Samsung, which will naturally want to keep its intentions under wraps.
Conversely, Samsung seems relatively unconcerned by Sam Mobile’s other big scoop: the release of previously unseen pictures of the forthcoming Galaxy Alpha smartphone in a fetching shade of white.
The handset is reputed to feature a metal frame, as Samsung finally bows to consumers’ criticism of its ‘plasticky’ handsets and demands for a more robust, more premium construction.
Other features set to be on board when the Alpha lands later this month include Android 4.4 out of the box, a 4.8-inch screen, 13-megapixel camera and heartrate and fingerprint sensors.
