Whole world is keeping their eye on the Mobile World Congress in Spain where the South Korean electronics giant Samsung is holding a dedicated launch event in March for its flagship S4. Mobile World Congress is perhaps something of a sideshow, but that doesn’t mean the phone giant hasn’t got a raft of things to show off in Barcelona.
Along with the Galaxy S4 another one of the Samsung product they also say the Big Boy is the Galaxy Note 8. It’s the third phone in the Galaxy Note series and has a 8-inch screen which is a huge expansion compared to 5.3 inch screen of note 2, it’s much more tablet than it is phone. The customers obsession with bigger screen has made Samsung to go little over the edge lets see how customers respond to this as it surely won’t be easy to handle and wont slide into your jeans pocket like the previous note(1 and 2) although its Stylus will make note taking on the go a bit easier.
Like Note 2, The Note 8 is also joined by an armada of S3 lookalikes too. Both the Galaxy Fame and Galaxy Young sport the similar white plastic backs and chrome edging. Samsung’s HomeSync boasts full Android and a 1TB hard drive. You can stream all the media you want from Google Play or Netflix or save it locally as well as browse the web or enjoy apps on the big screen.
Samsung also showed off its long awaited Tizen operating system. The new software is aimed towards the lower end of Samsung’s phones, so don’t expect it to turn up on the Galaxy S4. It will hopefully offered a pared down, lighter weight experience on basic hardware, making better use of limited resources than the more bloated Android.
Although it had plenty to show off on its stand, Samsung is saving the big announcement of the S4 for a dedicated unveiling in March. The event takes place in New York on 14 March and we’ll be there in force, eager to see what Samsung’s next flagship super phone will include.
