Samsung to announce Google-experience phone on Nov 8th?

4 years ago 33

Samsung Mobile just sent out invites to select members of the press to inform them a new Android device will be unveiled on November 8th in New York city. No details were provided on what type of product will be announced, but based on the timing we would have to think this is their new Google-experience phone running stock Gingerbread (Android 2.3).

Google just placed a giant Gingerbread man in their front lawn to signal they had completed the latest Android update and we are expecting an official announcement at any time. We were told this Samsung phone would only be available for testers this year, but the announcement could mean we see a possible holiday launch.

One of my sources from a U.S. carrier confirmed the existence of the device so this tells me Samsung is already shopping it around to their possible launch partners.

We were scheduled to attend Samsung’s press conference earlier this month at CTIA, but it was cancelled at the last moment because whatever they were showing was not ready. To me it sounds like they were waiting on Gingerbread and now that it is complete we can finally see this new phone.

What device do you think Samsung will show off next month? Other sites have suggested the stock ticker in the image above could indicate the Verizon Continuum which features dual-displays.
