We already know that both Samsung and HTC
will host press conferences at MWC 2015 on March 1. But which of the two manufacturers will steal the show? Well, it's too early to properly answer this question, but at least we know which of the two will announce its new handsets first. It's not Samsung.
While Samsung's event will start at 18:30 CET, HTC's press conference begins two and a half hours earlier, at 16:00 CET. This was confirmed on Twitter by Jeff Gordon, HTC's Senior Global Online Communications Manager.
As reported countless of times before, HTC is expected to announce the One (M9)
and One (M9) Plus
at MWC 2015, while Samsung should unveil the Galaxy S6
and Galaxy S Edge
, having brand new flagship devices presented a bit earlier than the competition's flagships might not mean much. But HTC probably hopes that customers will be blown away by its handsets once they're officially unveiled, and won't care that much about what Samsung has to show. Plus, who knows, perhaps HTC will start selling the One (M9) and One (M9) Plus immediately after announcing them - just like it did last year with the One (M8).
What do you think, does HTC have an advantage in the fact that it gets to announce its new smartphones earlier than Samsung? Or it won't matter in the end?
