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.
