Samsung event

Live coverage of new Windows and Android announcements from Samsung

We're live from London's Earls Court exhibition center later today for Samsung Premiere 2013 -- the Korean manufacturer's big event where it's promising to show off new Galaxy (Android) and Windows (Ativ) devices. So we can certainly expect to see more of the Galaxy S4 Mini, Active and Zoom, as well as unannounced stuff like the Galaxy NX Android-powered mirrorless camera. On the Windows side, there's the possibility of more tablets and ultrabooks, and maybe some new Windows Phone devices too.

We'll be on the ground from 6pm local time, and the show kicks off at 7pm BST (2pm EDT, 11am PDT), so remember to bookmark this page for live coverage. You'll find our liveblog after the break!

I can't wait to hear about the Galaxy NX. What I really want is HTC to team up with Canon to do something similar.

I do believe the Galaxy Note 3 will be announced at this event.
Or at the very least, a hint about its specs.

Let's make a friendly wager:

If I'm right, I'll get a free Galaxy Note 3... and if you're
right, you give me a free Galaxy Note 3?

NoreenD says:

Nice try! (I share your enthusiasm!) I doubt that they'll mention the Note 3, but one can hope...

Anyway, let's see what Samsung wants to offer. (Hope it's good.)

how come AndroidCentral isn't carrying this even via live video like the "other" websites?

by the way....

does Samsung give out freebies at these events?

free phones, tablets, keychains, etc....

Ronzdaname says:

I would really like to see if they do mention the Galaxy Note 3. I have an upgrade coming and want to know how long I will have to wait for its release, or should I just get the Note 2

NoNexus says:

September - October is when it will be announced.

There is your wait time. I would do it instead of the note 2. Patience is a virtue

herlindosan says:

I want to know if any new features will be on the NX that are not on the S4? I love when Samsung host Premiere's

HeyImAlexD says:

I know this is a stretch, but I'm really hoping for an Android 4.2 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 update. I really want the dang lockscreen Google Now :( .

plunder says:

I wonder what kind of theatrical dance Samsung have for us today.

TheDu9du says:

I'm hoping they introduce a new tune to their commercials. it gets annoying.

TheDu9du says:

i'm here where is the show?

TheDu9du says:

i see it now

hfm says:

I hope they come out with an Ativ to compete with the Razer Blade 14... Maybe also a Samsung Gamer 7 refresh..

Yeah I know this has nothing to do with Android but if they aren't making a Nexus i don't care what they have to show. :)

hfm says:

Oh.. Ativ tablets.. *snore*

tshepomk says:

hfm says:

Holy.. what the... WHAT IS UP WITH THOSE GLASSES...

I don't know, but I am wondering where I can get some in black.

NerdyDarren says:

We're in for the most awkward tech show. Hipster host and thank you clap.

This presentation has been less painful than the previous. The short video introducing the s4, mini, active, and zoom was very impressive.

wow.... are those people drugged or sleeping?

It's so quiet there....

Tough crowd?

They should have gotten Pollyanna Woodward instead!!!

bergeronjc says:

What about the Note 3? Does that get it's own special thing later this year?

yes... it's coming on August 15

They need to steal their release timelines from Apple and when they announce laptops release them within a week of these Samsung events. I don't want to have to wait 3 months to look at getting one of the new ATIV books.
