Samsung teases "Something New" is coming!

So CES 2013 is the big event where Samsung will bring something new. So what can this be? Samsung has two obvious things that they can claim the "world awaits." Their new flagship smartphone or their new OLED TV. Now the TV has already been unveiled, but the GS4 hasn't. Now I really don't think it would be the GS4 as it would be too early for an announcement. CES is an event for consumer goods, so what do you think it may be? I'm psyched!

DAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYUM!!! If anything could ever be called a teaser, THAT WAS IT!
My gut feeling says it's something new for the TV industry. Maybe a Tizen OLED TV.

Samsung will have a new look and re-branding. The S4 is also rumored to have a metal body. . . just rumors mind you.

The WSJ had mentioned the possibility of Samsung using flexible AMOLEDs for something next year.

The imagination runs wild.

sorry it will have a 5 inch screen.

the good news is that they have fit the larger screen
inside the same form factor as the Galaxy S3.

My Nexus 4 suddenly feels very small.

Not physically, of course...

I believe they will fit a 5 inch screen in the same physical sized phone as the GS3 too. I told myself I would keep my GS3 for at least 2 years, but I am now 100% that won't happen.
With all the new features that Samsung is pumping into the GS3, I'm more excited than ever to see what the GS4 will offer.

Samsung won't unveil the S4 at CES. They will have a stand alone press conference for that.

One advantage for the Nexus 4 is that there's no contract. That's more appealing at the moment unless the GS4 blows it out of the water.
