What makes this even a bit plausible is a recent trademark awarded to Samsung for a device called the Samsung Hit. The trademark application has the device listed under the smartphone and tablet computer categories. And earlier this year, Samsung received a patent relating to a smartphone docked to a tablet. Sound familiar?
Maybe the different variations of the SM-G900 series prove to be something else, like the Samsung Galaxy S5 in plastic and metallic versions. Or the Samsung Galaxy S5 in international and regional variations. But just perhaps it is the Samsung Hit, which would consist of a smartphone and a tablet with a rear dock. Like the Padfone, the user would slip the handset into the tablet dock to power the slate.
Surely we will know more after CES 2014 next month.
