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.

  • How about the big rebranding? Isn’t it more possible?

  • Why cannt we just wait and let Samsung disclose something really concrete..?? These rumours keep on pouring in again and again and again…!!!!!!

  • As long as they don’t pull an Apple and just give us the S3 with moderately better specs then the S4 should be awesome.

    or maybe they’re releasing a first (flexible) device containing that flexible display they released back in 2011…?

    • ese

      Flexible devices is still a long way. The only thing now that can be made flexible is the screen, not the processor or motherboard. It’s more likely that the screen would be marketed as “unbreakable” since it’s flexible. So no, not a flexible device.

    What an anti-climax.

  • blowntoaster

    Will probably be the unveiling of the rumoured “new branding”…and some new tech.

    How about Note III?

    • Peterson Silva

      I don’t think so, the II is so… Recent O_O

  • RarestName

    Imagine those people who just got the S III.

    • Peterson Silva

      Me! =D And I don’t actually care that much, it still is a great phone ^^

      • RarestName


    • But you know there are morons that buy an iPhone 4s weeks before iPhone 5 launch and then go and buy an iPhone 5 after its released… I imagine a few people doing the same.. lol

    • Ben Edwards

      If they’ve adopted the S3 this late, they aren’t likely to make the switch the 4 immediately…

  • Butts_McButts

    The entire tablet line is due a refresh.

  • hungry4donuts

    wait isn’t that new tizen os for samsung said releasing early 2013.

  • Ben Edwards

    I doubt it’s going to be the Galaxy S IV. More likely new screen technology and possibly processor tech, as well as Samsung’s new brand image.
