Our best hopes will be for the 7" note.... I hope I can see trust happening, and at a good price 250+ too!

GALAXY NOTE 7: iPad mini competitor. Mark my words!

Actually Samsung introduced the 7" tablet concept, but yeah that works hopefully 100 cheaper than the iPad

I'm really disapointed.... only thing we know now is the galaxy s4 processor, obviously the exynos 5.

Really when it comes to displays , Samsung is pushing the frontiers of innovation . People say that they earn a lot of revenue from plasticy phones but a lot of that profit goes into R& D .

i disagree that they are the frontiers if innovation. oleds have been around for a while. flexible oleds were shown by other companies like sony years ago. they are also not the first company to release an oled screen to the public, as sony also released one years ago. i see no innovation from sammy as of right now. and please no one say that the exynos 5 Octa is innovation because it isn't. its an evolution.
i see nothing to drool about when i see their phones. cheap feeling build quality. over saturated screen. boring looking UI.
the one thing i do think they are good about is their marketing
