Samsung Galaxy S IV to after all be at CES, but only for a few executives to see
The Samsung Galaxy S IV will not make an official debut at the Consumer Electronics Show that kicks off in just a couple of days in Las Vegas. That’s no surprise as Samsung is widely expected to announce its new Android flagship around April this year, but what could be a slight surprise is that early models of the Galaxy S IV will be at the show, but under tight supervision and behind closed doors for only a few top executives to see, according to South Korean website MT.

Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Jay Lee is allegedly the person who will be at CES and the one to show the upcoming Galaxy S IV to carriers and other high-profile partners.

Moreover, the report goes on to once again say the Samsung Galaxy S IV will indeed have a 5-inch 1080p display and run on Samsung’s Exynos 5440, a quad-core ARM Cortex A15-based chip.

This might sound a bit strange to you, but what the Samsung executive will be showing is likely a non-final prototype of the S IV to partners that will need some information about that device before they decide how much of it they would want, and so on. All of this is ordinary, and is going behind the scenes, without the end-user hearing much. At least we know that Samsung is ready with some kind of a prototype to show off, and that’s already something.

What’s more interesting, is that we even saw a leaked picture of the Galaxy S IV, stripped off the physical buttons. That could be an interesting decision to keep the device at around the same dimensions and relatively comfortable for one-handed use despite the larger screen.

S4 is most anticipated phone right now and it deserves a separate unveiling.

While i agree, i think it's too soon for Samsung to unveil the S IV. Yes, It's a premium phone that needs a sole, separate and a big launch. It would be better if Samsung unveil the phone a few days prior to the launch...i think that would have more surprise value for the fans.

Q2 for S4, Q3 for Note3.
There will be a few months gap between the two.

They can't really go over the top with the internals compared to high end phones being showcased at CES.
1920x1200? OLED? Flexible display? Better camera? S Pen? Android 5.0? Not likely.
I think this year is for Samsung tablets. Note 2 10.1 sounds promising.

Every thing looks great, but needs home button and durable body to make it a perfect device.

well, they need a push from other companies to make S IV really successful, so why not.

i really want the ability of dual processor though, a quad core A15 and a dual core (4+1 was patented by Nvidia) low power A9

I second that, I believe Sammy thinks people are getting bigger and bigger every year, maybe they're making these phones larger because of the hardware they have inside.

I was looking forward this phone, but since it'll be a 5" screen and look almost the same as the GS3 and Note 2, I'd better stay with my GS2 or look for another phone :s

The Galaxy SIV would surely crush the iPhone5 a couple of times!

The Galaxy S4 will be great i am sure. But I will be purchasing the Galaxy Note 3 that's Samsung's main device in the family.
