IFA 2013, one of the year’s last consumer electronics events is coming in less than three weeks, and already rumours are rife that Samsung and Sony will debut their latest flagship smartphones at the event. The Galaxy Note III and the Sony cameraphone codenamed Honami have been extensively leaked in recent weeks, with Samsung also dropping its “Note” moniker in its press invites.
Sony’s press invites for its IFA 2013 event does not drop any hints as to what the Honami device will eventually be called, but there was one interesting bit: Sony’s press event will be held at 5pm local time – two hours before Samsung are to hold their Unpacked Episode 2 event.
The move is clearly Sony’s attempt to divert attention away from Samsung’s major IFA announcement, as the company debuts its new camera phone touted to feature a 20.7MP G Lens camera. It must be noted also that both events are actually scheduled a day before IFA actually starts. Sony has also traditionally been an active participany at IFA, and may possibly also announce the G Lens attachment. It is unlikely, however, that the Sony products would drown out interest in the Galaxy Note III.
