Most of us will be aware now that Samsung has sent out press invites to an event that is set to reveal the company’s next version of their flagship smartphone, but there are now reports that the May event could have some other goodies be revealed as well.
While the main event on May 3rd will be the unveiling of Galaxy S3 to an expectant crowd, Cnet are reporting that sources are claiming that the company will also reveal a new Galaxy Tab 10.1 alongside the Android smartphone. It is being claimed that the device will be a quad core powered device, but not the delayed Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 that is also reportedly getting some quad core love.
It does seem a little strange for the company to be releasing yet another tablet and when contacted Samsung said nothing of any such product. The company would obviously like to keep its cards close to its chest, and maybe they are set to reveal a slightly cheaper alternative.
Meanwhile there are reports that Samsung could be launching a new service at the same event called S-Cloud, which as TechRadar are reporting will rival Apple’s iCloud that allows users to store data remotely but access it from a number of Apple products.
Sources have contacted a Korean website called Maeil Business, and they are claiming that Samsung’s service won’t have the same restrictions and limits that are on Apple’s iCloud offering, which would allow Samsung users to store any content they want. It is also being claimed that Samsung has partnered with Microsoft so the service can be offered globally, and it is being tipped to be available on various Samsung products.
It is also being suggested that users will get more than 5GB of storage but it’s not known if this will be available free, and Samsung are apparently set to offer a variety of HD TV shows and movies along with music through the cloud service. The event in a couple of weeks could be an interesting one and the team on Phones Review will keep you up to date with all the news.
