Samsung Releases New Ad, Promises ‘Something New’ at CES 2013
Samsung, the world’s largest maker of both cellphones and smartphones by volume, is gearing up for CES 2013, which runs January 8-11 in Las Vegas and has put together a nice teaser suggesting “something new is coming”.
Could it be the release of the Samsung Galaxy S IV?
Reuters speculated the Galaxy S IV may come with “a breakthrough unbreakable screen” which can be folded. Other rumors have pointed to a 13-megapixel camera, a quad-core chip and a five-inch display likely sporting full HD 1,920-by-1,080 pixel resolution at 441 pixels per inch, a big improvement in pixel density from both the Galaxy S III’s 306 ppi and the iPhone 5?s 326 ppi screen. But we think Samsung might want to release the S IV at one of it’s own events.
Although the show isn’t traditionally a mobile exhibition, major mobile brands have been a growing presence over the last few years, so a new smartphone isn’t out of the question. The timing seems better for a tablet, however, since its last major release in the category was August’s Galaxy Note 10.1.
But considering Samsung’s long CES heritage, the new product is more likely to be from the audio-visual side of the business. And, considering that CES 2012’s big product launch was centred around the ES8000 TV and its face recognition, motion control and upgradability, we wouldn’t be surprised if it was a new television. A commercially available Samsung ultra high-definition TV, anyone?
