Samsung to make "big" announcement September 1

Smartphone and tablet maker Samsung has been busy over the summer launching its Galaxy S II smartphone in Europe and Asia and selling millions of units in the process. The company also launched the 10.1 inch screen version of its Galaxy Tab. That tablet has been the subject of a big patent battle between Samsung and Apple that has resulted in the Galaxy Tab 10.1 being banned from sale in Australia and also banned, and later un-banned, from most of Europe. For its part Apple is aiming to get all of Samsung's smartphones and tablets banned from Europe.

Now Boy Genius Report is claiming that Samsung is prepping for what it is calling a "big" announcement on September 1. Samsung is being pretty cagy on exactly what will be revealed but is teasing us with a couple of YouTube videos that, well, don't really give us any clues. You can check out one of the teaser videos below. The report speculates that the announcement might be a new version of the 7 inch screen Galaxy Tab tablet with an improved touch screen and the 3.0 Honeycomb version of the Android operating system inside. However it also says that it might be the reveal of a brand new smartphone from the company.

A recent leak has supposedly hit the Internet recently that shows off Samsung's product launches for the end of the year which include nine Android based phones along with a Windows Phone 7 based device.
