Samsung Galaxy S IV to after all be at CES, but only for a few executives to see
posted by Victor H. / Jan 04, 2013, 3:29 AM
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.

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.

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.

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!
