Samsung Announces A Variety Of Mobile Devices At IFABy: Zach Walton - August 30, 2012
Samsung had a huge showing yesterday at IFA. The company showed off a number of new products that take advantage of all the major new developments in mobile and desktop computing. Due to time differences, you may have missed Samsung’s big unveiling in Berlin. Worry not, it’s now available via streaming from Samsung’s Facebook page.
The event was dubbed “Mobile Unpacked 2012″ and it focused on all the major hardware releases that Samsung has planned for the rest of the year. The big news was the official announcement of the Galaxy Note II smartphone. The specs were leaked ahead of the show, but it doesn’t make it any less impressive. The phone features a massive 5.5-inch screen and it comes equipped with Jelly Bean.
Samsung also announced another impressive Android product at the show, but it’s not a phone. The company will be releasing the Galaxy Camera this fall. It’s a 16MP point-and-shoot camera with a 4.8-inch display that’s powered by Android 4.1.
The company also announced a number of Windows 8 devices including phones and tablets at the event. The company dubs their new Windows 8 line “ATIV” and they’re all fairly impressive. The first two devices are the ATIV Smart PC and Smart PC Pro. They will be similar to Microsoft’s own Surface tablet in that they combine the portability of tablets with the power of an Ultrabook.
The company announced the ATIV Tab, a new tablet that’s similar to the company’s Galaxy Tab. It features a 10.1-inch screen. The ATIV S smartphone is similar to the company’s popular Galaxy S III, but will launch with Windows Phone 8. It features a 4.8 screen, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and HSPA+ capabilities.
All these announcements and more can be seen below in Samsung’s official show at IFA. These devices won’t be in store for a while longer, but you can get your first look at Samsung’s new line of devices below.
