Samsung sent out a tweet that is both vague and exciting today regarding an upcoming, “revolutionary” device. Said device will be launched in an ad during the Super Bowl this coming Sunday and while we want to say it’s the Galaxy S III, in all likelihood it’s the Galaxy Note.
There have been rumors that the Galaxy S III wouldn’t make its debut at Mobile World Congress this year, which could possibly make one believe that the Super Bowl ad could indeed be for the upcoming flagship handset but let’s consider the facts.
- Both the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II initially launched outside of the US and we don’t see that trend changing any time soon.
- While it’s a nice thought that Samsung would advertise the Galaxy S III for the Super Bowl, the US likely won’t see the handset until at least the 3rd quarter of the year.
The Galaxy Note has been getting quite a bit of attention lately, and while the phone is definitely going to be too big for some people, it’ll likely be a hit with others. It only took two months for the obscenely large device to sell a million units but having that beautiful HD Super AMOLED display in your face could easily sway some naysayers.
It’s funny to think that Dell released the Streak 5 and it seemed to have been a flop, with the biggest complaint being that it was unnecessarily large. Fast forward to today and we have Samsung releasing a similar product with a bigger display and it’s generating a lot of hype. If only, Dell. If only.
Well, it may not be the Galaxy S III but here’s to Samsung and its first Super Bowl ad.
