It’s a bit like the “Barbra Streisand effect” every time Samsung launches a high-end product. The cycle of rumors and leaks follows its usual rhythm for the manufacturer: first the leak from Onleaks, which reveals its design, then rumors about its features, before the huge leak of press photos from EvLeaks or Roland Quandt.

This is a cycle we have known for many years and it holds true every time. This has also given credibility to the leakers or journalists just quoted. Over several iterations, another event was added to this cycle. Samsung’s reaction.

When Samsung asks to delete pictures

It’s Evan Blass, @Evleaks on Twitter (X), what causes it. Samsung again tried to suspend his account by filing a DMCA request with the platform. This type of request allows brands to protect the images they own. It is generally mainly used by the entertainment industry to remove pirated content from movies or TV series.

Result, the accounts of Evleaks and Ice universe, also known for its Samsung leaks, was blocked for a few hours. A maneuver that the first person affected considered ridiculous, since the images of the phones had already been distributed and published in all specialist media like ours.

It must be said that by asking the platforms to remove these images, Samsung is confirming their intellectual property. In other words, Samsung confirms that these images are indeed its own and therefore are indeed images of the future Galaxy S24. Through its approach, which we might consider useless given the viral nature of the sharing, the manufacturer actually helps give credibility to the leaks and underlines the importance of their publication.
