Galaxy S4 official announcement MIA at CES 2013, just as expected

by: Chris SmithJanuary 7, 2013


The Samsung CES 2013 was very boring for anyone looking forward to new Android devices from the world’s top Android maker. While some distant rumors did say that one particular device could be unveiled at the Las Vegas trade show, the Galaxy S4 was not officially unveiled at this first major event of the year, as expected.

Rumor has it that Samsung will show the device at CES, but only privately, most likely to partners, not that we can confirm that particular report either.

What’s clear is that Samsung isn’t interested in having the Galaxy S4 share the show with all its other smart devices that were unveiled today, including a new range of intelligent TVs, new Windows laptops, smart cameras and too-smart-if-you-ask-me home appliances.

For that matter, no new Android devices were unveiled today, with the company only mentioning on stage some of its existing Android gadgets including the Galaxy S3 and the 4G LTE Galaxy Note 10.1.

Obviously, now we’re going to wonder whether the Galaxy S4 is coming next month at MWC 2013 – and yes, there are some rumors claiming that’s where Samsung will unveil the handset – although the most plausible scenario for the announcement of Samsung’s next top smartphone is that it’ll be scheduled for a later non-trade-show-related event that will best fit Samsung’s plans for the handset.

    That’s very good to hear, I am sure that’s another thing to look forward to.

    Great news since if it were to be released by now that means it would’ve been more of a S3 S vs an actual S4.

  • I think Samsung are missing a trick here, I bought the SGS2 about 4 days after release, because I was so eager to get one due to the ridiculous spec compared to anything else at the time. Now, my contract is edging ever close to being eligible for an upgrade, and I’m not going to be able to wait to see what the S4 may or may not do when it finally materializes, and I’m going to end up with a Sony Xperia Z…

    Obviously, now we’re going to wonder whether the Galaxy S4 is coming next month at MWC 2012<–Now 2012?

    CES is failure in case of Smartphone industry,
    for US,its apple show that matters and for rest of world,its MWC,
    CES is of no hope specially for Samsung fans,
    for Samsung,it’s international market more important than US,thats why samsung Galaxies and note reaches there after a months time.

  • It’s hard to keep up with these smartphones lately, personally I think it’ll be awesome if Samsung releases the S IV next year! Just saying…
