Samsung announced that the Galaxy S4 has broken previous sales records, selling 10 million units in less than a month of availability. It isn’t actually a surprise, but the Galaxy S4 is selling like hotcakes….
The last two flagship releases from Samsung have been the biggest Android smartphones of the last two years. The Galaxy S2 and S3 both broke the 30 million sales barrier and the S3 isn’t done quite yet. It’s no surprise then, that the Galaxy S4 is generating some buzz well ahead of its release. We’ve already heard the Galaxy S4 will be unveiled at MWC in February for a May release, but now we’re seeing hints that it could be shown at CES in January.
Samsung has released this teaser video which effectively shows you absolutely nothing.
CES is a big show and there are always loads of new devices being shown off from TVs to smartphones to tablets. Samsung generally seems to prefer to showcase its flagship releases in dedicated events, but you never know.
The Galaxy S3 came out last May and with a busy Christmas battle against the iPhone 5 we think it’s unlikely that Samsung wants people thinking about the S4 right now. The company would prefer you to go out and buy the S3.
We’ve already seen plenty of speculation from suggested Galaxy S4 specs to a 13-megapixel camera rumor. Until Samsung confirms the S4 and shows it off we can expect a steady flow from the rumor mill. The excitement about the next Galaxy S just goes to show that Samsung’s brand is flying high. We’ll keep you posted and bring you all the details just as soon as they emerge.
