HTC One (M9) will be announced two hours before Samsung Galaxy S6 and S Edge

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.
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?

This is a disadvantage for htc, their m9 will be overshadowed by the announcement of the s6 since samsung is more popular and has more fans. If i were htc i'd move the announcement to another day

I agree. Htc will have 2 hours of attention until the Samsung show starts. So HTC now has Jeff Gordon? Didn't they have Robert Downey Jr? So the real question will be what is inside the Galaxy S6? A Snapdragon or Exynos?

Every phone gets overshadowed by either Samsung's flagships or the iPhone. That's a fact.

Well at least for me, I don't care for Samsung and the Touchwiz, so they can announce it whenever, I'm going to get the HTC. Dual front-firing Stereo Speakers, design, I personally loved the camera of the One M7, micro SD card, and I'm good.

It won't. S6 will just wreck boring m9 to the ground.

It's obvious that HTC wants to get a share of the spotlight from Samsung. More news for us!

I don't know why I'm not excited about htc event. Perhaps because it would be the same m eight like last year with giant bezels and gimmicky 4 ultrafail camera...

Samsung did this on purpose, did they really had to make their keynote on the same day as HTC? As far as i recall HTC announced their keynote first. Obviously Samsung is trying everything it can do destroy their competition.

Who cares? With all the rumors and leaks the surprise is going to be long gone before any of the announcements... It comes down to a matter of loyalty to your brand which will give the edge to any of them..

you will either be a sheep or a goat come march 1st... some will look at software innovation from htc and others may confuse innovation with design by samsung. either way they will appeal to whoever tunes in.

I have a feeling HTC is going to go bankrupt soon, and eventually either Apple or Samsung are going acquire it, strip it of all its high rank employees and patents and spit it out like Google did with Motorola and sell it to some other manufacturer.
