Out of the blue, Korean based Samsung released a teaser on its website that coming June 20th will be the day when a new Galaxy series phone along with a new ATIV product will be unveiled. The ATIV line of products from Samsung is powered with Windows Phone OS from Microsoft. On the said date, Samsung is going to organize a press event at 7pm in London at Earls Court Exhibition Center to unveil the forthcoming products.
Samsung fans can even watch the event live on Samsungs’s YouTube page. Samsung is doing quite a good business through its wide range of Android powered phones. Now, it aims to conquer the market by concentrating on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 OS.
The Samsung ATIV S was the first Windows Phone 8 running device from the manufacturer. The ATIV S that came out with 4inch Super AMOLED display, 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB RAM, 8MP camera and supported NFC and HSPA+ networks. The successor ATIV smartphone which is going to be unveiled on June 20th is surely going to be a feature rich Windows Phone 8 powered device. Currently, Nokia is the only company that is solely selling Windows Phone OS powered Lumia phones. However, with Samsung joining the competition, we feel the Korean based company is going to give tough competition to the Finnish company.
The image that you see in the post is an invitation the Samsung has sent out for the event that is going to be held on June 20th. The image is definitely a teaser as it is divided into four parts. However, it is not easy to understand what the image is trying to depict. We feel the ATIV line of products will be similar to that of Galaxy line of products. The Galaxy products include smartphones, tablets and cameras that are powered with Android operating system. In the same way, ATIV range of products will also include smartphones, desktops, laptops and tablets powered with Windows OS.
Samsung had initially planned to use Windows 8 for ATIV tablets and Windows Phone 8 for ATIV smartphones. However, in the month of April, Samsung announced that ATIV products will also include desktops and laptops. They have already unveiled ATIV Book 5 and ATIV Book 6.
The Samsung Galaxy 4 mini was recently shown by Samsung which suggests that this phone will also hit the market very soon. Another smartphone waiting in the pipeline is Samsung Galaxy S4 Activ which is going to be dust and water resistant version of Galaxy S4. Samsung Galaxy Zoom, a smartphone will come with high-end photography features are also expected to release soon. This shows that Samsung really knows how to conquer the market and advertise its products.
