Samsung teases new product for CES, could be Galaxy S IV

Samsung, one of the biggest electronics companies in the world and the makers of the successful Galaxy line, has posted a rather intriguing video today. It seems to be a teaser video for once of their upcoming products that they will unveil at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

A number of other websites suggest this might refer to Samsung’s new Galaxy S IV, their upcoming flagship Android device. The rumors suggest this phone will sport a 5 inch Super AMOLED display with full HD resolution and the impressive 441 pixel density per inch. This would be Samsung’s answer to HTC’s new J Butterfly a similarly specced phone. Samsung’s Galaxy S IV is also supposed to show off a new quad-core Exynos CPU as well as a new flexible display technology that would make the screen unbreakable.

These are some very impressive specs to be sure; however it might still be a while till we see them on the market. It’s only been seven months since the launch of the Galaxy S III so we find it a bit unlikely Samsung would rush a new phone to market, especially when they are dominating the Android space. Plus there’s the fact that this year Samsung chose not to launch their phones at CES but rather hold a separate event a few months later to get to fully control their marketing message. And by all accounts this was a good strategy that worked in their favor so it would be strange for Samsung to revert to their old way of doing things.

Considering all of this, the teaser below might be referring to a completely different product such as a brand new TV or smart camera, instead of the Galaxy S IV.

Yaaay.
Now if Google would make Andrdoid just a little less like a PC, the phones may benefit from ever improving specs.

Hopefully we will see a file browser in the future of android atleast

Go on Google Play store and you can have your pick of as many as you like
I would recommend ES File Explorer personally but some people don't like it.

I know, I use solid explorer beta2 <- Amazing

But a file browser included by default would just be a handy thing to have ^^

A new phone, playing into the ever escalating Android specs race.
Although, the addition of more memory and cores might be just what's needed. Since, a dual core 1.2 ghz cpu and 1gb of ram wasn't enough to keep Android from lagging (GSII).

This is the main reason why I switched. There's something seriously wrong about that when other platforms (iOS/WP) are buttery smooth with 1 cpu core and less ram.

When I use a ipod touch to browse the web with safari it laggs way and way more then my nexus 7 on chrome so all those stories about ios being perfect are just something I I take with a grain of salt iOS is outdated in my opinion missing a lot of features compared to android and being too simple, not everyone wants a OS made for people with a brain as big as apple

Which ipod touch? For a fair comparison, devices should be at the same spec level.

Lagging in browser is understandable, because it's very CPU dependent, but when and android phone lags on OS level, you know there is something wrong with it.

Well first of all it's a phone before anything else. There were probably a dozen times where my Android "phone" lagged while answering the phone app, to the point where it would disconnect or fail to answer. By lagging, I mean the phone was drawing the connected to a call screen so slow that it was drawing 10-15 lines a second. Once the call disconnected it went back to normal where only the other things that were running lagged.

The phone app should have the utmost priority. It's a phone.

So... just another phone? Upping all the specs but not actually offering anything functionally new? Meh, just got a new phone. Gonna have to do more than up some numbers that in the end only make a fraction of a sec of a difference in how fast I can open a fart app. The flexible screen may be cool but amounts to a gimmick for me since dropping a phone and breaking the screen was never an issue since A. I have never dropped my phone and B, even if it broke, insurance exists or C. its not hard to replace screens. Not worth spending hundreds on IMO. I am sure someone else who is due for an upgrade may get some satisfaction from it though.

Stop speculating without even knowing whats in it yet.

How is flexible display not a new feature ?

He never said it wasn't, but that the feature falls into 'gimmick' category in his purchasing descision matrix

It's likely their new 'radical brand makeover', they're willing to kill off the blue logo in favor of something new. The whole new company image is actually scheduled to be announced around the same time in January.
