Samsung Premiere 2013

New Galaxy and Ativ devices promised

The teaser image above has just hit the Samsung Mobile press site, bringing news of new Galaxy (Android) and Ativ (Windows) devices. "Samsung Premiere 2013" will take place on Thursday, June 20 at London's Earls Court Exhibition Center -- that's the same venue that hosted the Galaxy S3 reveal last year. The action's set to begin around 7pm local time, and Samsung will be livestreaming everything on YouTube.

The first of the three teaser images accompanying the news looks an awful lot like the Galaxy S4 Active we've seen leak in recent days. The other two are a bit less conspicuous -- there's what looks like the lid of a laptop, and some kind of glowing ring. It's possible (however unlikely) we could see more Windows Phone hardware from Samsung at the event. Our money's on new Ativ-branded Windows 8 tablets or laptops, though. On the Android side, we might see the extensively-leaked Galaxy S4 Mini debut alongside the Active.

What are you hoping to see from Samsung in London  next month? Hit the comments and let us know!

What about the note 3 that should be coming soon.

Alex Dobie says:

Too early for the Note 3, I think.

briankurtz79 says:

The note doesn't come until the fall. Going to upgrade my s3 to an s4 this week. I would love to wait for the active but it probably won't come to Verizon anyways.

eahinrichsen says:

Which features of the S4 make you want to trade in your S3? Just curious. :-)

OK Samsung! You have my attention! I'll be waiting...

i want a med-high end phone for a man on a budget

John-Smith says:

If it's brand new and from samsung I'm sure it's still going to cost $500+

ill be waiting on the note 3

XChrisX says:

June 20th is my birthday, so a Note3 would be awesome. We'll just have to wait and see.

DJxDARIENx says:

the Note has never been a summer phone its a fall phone so I really doubt Samsung would change that when so many people would be upgrading from the original note around fall and can get the 3rd version. Its Samsung new version if the ATIV S (windows 8 smartphone) its going to be on Sprint asthe carriers first windows 8 device along side HTC.

XChrisX says:

Yeah, I'm sure the Note 3 will come at IFA in the fall, but there's also a Galaxy device being launched, perhaps a new tablet.

I'm thinking this is a 7-8" Windows tablet. Look at the bottom left image; looks like the screen facing up with a kickstand in back. Maybe.

I will be waiting for my new note3. I will rock my galaxy nexus until then.

NoreenD says:

Agreed! I'm doing pretty much the same thing! But I can't help it when I look & drool over another smartphone when it suddenly appears! (Lol)

So, for now, I'll enjoy my Galaxy Nexus.

droidhead_1 says:

I was tempted by the s4 and the One but I know how mad I would be at myself when the note 3 came out. Was also thinking maybe there will be a one XL or something around those line.

DJxDARIENx says:

It won't be a note because that's a fall device. And highly unlikely windows phones? Seems AC forgot that Sprint still has to announce its two windows phones (Samsung and HTC) at the begnnig of summer. The 20th is the summer so of course it would be the Sprint Windows Phone announcement and the release would come shortly after.

This is an event in the UK. It's not terribly likely that Sprint would be announcing new phones in the UK. Possible, but if a Windows Phone was announced it'd be more likely Sprint would do their own thing in the U.S, surely?

Note 3?time?

Gearu says:

-_- Taking way to long to get the Mini out there.

trekmario says:

Maybe a samsung galaxy mega ? Be nice the s4 still can't compare to yhe s3 dual radios can text and talk and surf the web at the same time on 3g.

ChuckG73 says:

Chrome book?

Sh3ngLong says:

Besides the Note 3, I'm also hoping to see a 15" laptop that's under 4 lbs, with a nice 1080p IPS/PLS screen, at least 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD, and a 10+ hour battery life. A dedicated graphic card is not necessary for me. The Haswell GPU will be good enough for my on-the-go needs.

Is the event open to public or is it strictly for press only. I live very close to the exhibition centre and would love to go?

Rama Devan says:

I would like to ask the same question :)
