Report: Sony, Samsung, LG, HTC, Microsoft smartphone release dates leaked

Leaks usually refer to one – maybe two – handsets, but this time we’ve hit the motherlode.

A leaked PowerPoint presentation slide appears to reveal the launch windows for a range of smartphones from different companies.

It’s alleged that the slide comes courtesy of a recent T-Mobile Poland presentation, as reported by XperiaBlog.

While most of the handsets listed on the slide have already launched, a number are devices yet to be formally unveiled.

Here’s the full list:

First Quarter – 2016

  • Samsung Galaxy XXX

  • Samsung Galaxy XXX
  • Samsung Galaxy XXX

It seems likely that some of these launches will be the following handsets:

We’d also expect to see spin-offs like the Galaxy S7 Edge, Plus, and Edge Plus, as well as a number of mid- and low-end devices.

It wouldn’t be a surprise to see these apparent launch dates come to fruition; the first half of every year almost always plays host to a wide-range of flagship smartphones.

Of course, we can’t verify this image, so take this news with a degree of scepticism.
