The Monday teaser is short on details, though, so its hard to say what the blog post is pointing to. The post just implies that something is being launched between Jan. 8 and 11, which are the dates of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013:
This is a teaser. Get ready for January 8th-11th, 2013 and stay tuned to Samsung Tomorrow to find out more on what this is about.It would seem a little early, as Samsung released the Galaxy S III, its current flagship phone, in May. If it were sticking to an annual schedule, as Apple does with its iconic iPhone, January is way too early for an intro.
The earlier rumor came from the Korea Times. It speculated that Samsung would unveil the Galaxy S IV at Mobile World Congress, which runs at the end of February every year. Either way consumers might see the intro of the next Samsung flagship phone relatively early in the year.
Also, CES is more focused on consumer devices, so Samsung might be launching a TV or Blu-ray player or some other consumer electronics gadgetry instead.
Samsung's "next big thing," the Galaxy S IV, is rumored to sport a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution, giving it a pixel density of 441 pixels-per-inch (PPI). Apple has advertised its Retina display having a density of greater than 300+ PPI, with the iPhone 4 / 4S / 5 having a density of 326.
The Galaxy S IV is also expected to be equipped with a quad-core Exynos processor, 4G LTE (and we assume that means even with LTE, it will ship with a quad-core processor, something that could not be done with the GS3); it could also use a new flexible display technology that gives it an unbreakable screen.
The embedded video teases just as much as the blog post does, meaning not very much at all.
