Samsung to gatecrash HTC One, by revealing its next hero phone at the Opera House the very same day ‘One’ goes on sale.
“We’d like to invite you to celebrate the launch of the Galaxy S 4 at an exclusive evening event at the iconic Sydney Opera House,” on April 23, a Samsung invite to media sent today read.
And if the S4 is anything like the S III launch in May last year, which went on sale the same day of launch Samsung could possibly be planning to totally gatecrash its Android rival, HTC One, hailed as one of the best smartphones ever, which is to go on sale the same day as S4 launch, on April 23 (pre-sale kicks off today).
The HTC One release date was announced just yesterday.
Although the S4 launch is taking place at 6pm all eyes will be on Samsung’s hero phone, and may take some of the spotlight away from HTC, who are fighting hard to stay in the smartphone race.
