Samsung trailer tells us to get ready for something new at CES 2013

Samsung trailer tells us to get ready for something new at CES 2013
My, my, my, how time flies. It is hard to believe but CES 2013 is just next month, from January 8th through January 11th. Can you believe that it has been four years since Palm introduced what many felt was the next big handset with the Palm Pre? No one in their right mind would have guessed that by the end of 2009, it was the Motorola DROID and Android that would change the face of the mobile industry.

Samsung has produced a quick trailer, all of 18 seconds, to remind us that "something new" will be revealed at the show. It could be the flexible displays that we've been hearing about, or it might have to do with the Samsung Galaxy S IV. With talk of an April launch for the next in line to wear the Android flagship handset crown, it might not be too early to see the new model introduced at CES. Early talk has the phone wearing a 5 inch Super AMOLED screen, possible unbreakable.

The mind boggles at the possibilities of what we might see next month!

wait a sec if the GS4 might be 5 inch than is there really a point to releasing another note?

the Note II is an half inch larger, it's the same size difference between the SIII and the original Note.

understandable as far as the original but now with BS4 going to 5 inch thats considered phablet, makes no sense for a note. the selling point would be, if you want a pen get note3 if you dont than GS4

well maybe it'll have virtual function keys and it'll share the same footprint as the SIII.

Gosh, by your logic next year this won't be phone arena but phablet arena. Since basically all flagship phones will be 5 inch ones. Get it already that it's not a tablet size. Just look at Sony Odin - it's half a centimeter shorter than the S3!

5 inches isn't considered phablet. Look at the DNA, HTC made sure that everybody understood that it's not a phablet, but a supercharged smartphone.

i think the note3 can go as much as 5.8" screen size...after that then i don't know what they will do with the Note4,hmmf...and tigermcm has a point, if they would retain the 5.5" size of the NOTE3 then it would go down to the phone functionality which would point out the difference between those two phones....

Note has another selling point beside being huge, Spen. but I really dont like galaxy S 4 to be more than 4.8 inch. samsung will lose customers who want smaller phones.

i don't think it's the next Galaxy S device i think it's something...new and remember this is CES, it doesn't necessarily even have to be a mobile device, it could be an Android powered Washing Machine for all we know.

Or a tablet

Posts: 5713; Member since: Oct 23, 2011

hm, interesting theory. i think it'd be $300 though.

5" phone is not a phone for an average joe! but if they maintain 4.5-4.8" flagship but with sizzling hot new technology or new add ons..then it will be powerful!

If it hadn't come from the Samsung YouTube account there'd be no way of identifying the company. I may eat these words, but I'm thinking it's not about any specific new phone. Instead, it'll be about TVs, or another device. Maybe the smartphones are a part of what's new, but it won't be the focus, mostly because the CES has evolved into a showcase for everything but mobile phones. Manufacturers tend to launch at MWC, unless it's Apple or Samsung (this past year, at least). That's my guess, anyway.

The editors need to remove those "google goggles. It's a friggin Ativ tablet running Windows 8 Pro.

i don't think they'd tease something like that as "something new", i don't even think they'd tease that at all.

A Samsung Ativ "Transformer" Tab with S-Pen would be something "new".

you mean the Series 5 and 7 Laptops? xDhttp://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2012/08/samsung-windows-8-hybrids/ a "Samsung Ativ "Transformer" Tab with S-Pen" would be a Samsung Ativ with new accessories, not something new.

Probably at ces, they'll just introduce their new logo along with the flexible amoled screen. It's too early for them to release the next flagship

What ever sammy does please and I beg you put a btter radio in your phones. I dont care if you go to Motorola and use there radios just give us something that works out in the fringe areas like Moto and HTC does.
