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!

We're live from Samsung Premiere 2013 in London!


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.

Honestly Alex. I think you've been spending too much time with Phil and Jerry. 'centre' not 'center' :-)

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?

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....

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

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

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 :( .

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. :)

But Samsung will never stop, lets waiting and see, maybe thwy might announce facebook and Twitter app for Samsung.

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!!!

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.
