Samsung Sets August 29 for an Unpacked Event That Promises Something “Magical”

Mark your calendars people because Samsung has started sending out invites for an Unpacked event set to happen on August 29 at IFA, the world’s leading consumer electronics and home appliances trade show in Berlin, Germany. The event is scheduled to start at 1900hrs Berlin time which is 0100hrs Malaysia time. Typical to Samsung Unpacked events, we’re expecting a live feed that accessible to the public.

The invite doesn’t say much aside from the date, time and venue of the event, but there is a rather obvious clue that suggest we should expect a device that comes with a stylus (the magic wand sure looks like a stylus) and the device that is in everyone’s mind right now is the Galaxy Note II.

Of course we could be all wrong and Samsung could just be messing with us but then again why would they do that? There is a possibility of Samsung launching another tablet but then again don’t they have enough already? What about the Galaxy Note 10.1? It might make an appearance at the event but it won’t be the star attraction because there’s very little about the Note 10.1 that we don’t already know about and very little else that Samsung has not revealed. Then, there’s the slight chance of it being a totally new smartphone altogether but you’ll agree that Samsung already has too much of that as well.

So will we see that Galaxy Note II this month? We can’t say for certain but it sure does look like it.
