Over on tech site UberGizmo, they are reporting that Korea will be the first to carry the Samsung Evolution Kit, for a limited-time introductory price of 300,000 won. This isn’t unheard of, especially considering that South Korea is the native country of the large electronics manufacturing company. Coupons will be made available to Korean residents to redeem the promotional pricing.
No other new details were made immediately available regarding the functionality outside of what we already know regarding the upgrade kit. What we do have is a much better quality promotional image of the Evolution Kit, but not much new information is available. The US release of the Evolution Kit is still on track for May at a $299 MSRP.
May is shaping up to be a popular month for the colossal South Korean manufacturer which just posted net profits of $7.7bn dollars in the first quarter of 2013 on over $45bn in revenue. Samsung is currently on track to release their new flagship Android-powered Galaxy S4 smartphone beginning in just a few weeks. Galaxy S4 cases are already available for purchase from several vendors in anticipation of the international roll-out of the device, which will begin on April 26th, 2013.
Samsung will also be holding their Official 1Q FY2013 Earnings Conference Call on April 26th.
