    News of future Samsung Galaxy devices has been a little slow lately. Of course, that is not surprising considering that Samsung likely wants to milk the SGS3 cash cow for as long as possible. That doesn't mean that they aren't working on its successor though, and in fact this evening we have a break in the dry spell of news for that exact subject. Supposedly "rumint" indicates that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will debut in CES in January of next year.

    Additional info accompanies this rumor in the form a specific spec for this next Sammy superphone. The scuttlebutt is that the SGS4 will arrive with a 5 inch 1920×1080 HD Super AMOLED display to compete with all of the other phablet sized devices hitting the market. More than likely this rumor is off just a little bit. Usually Samsung announces these things at Mobile World Congress which happens in February instead. Of course, both of these suppositions could be inaccurate as well. Lately Sammy has been prone to holding their own press events in New York, so they could follow that same pattern again. Either way, we will let you know as soon as any more details emerge.

    Thanks for the tip, Astrix!

    I'm sorry, but the SGS4 doesn't need to compete with the phablets, thats what the Galaxy Note is. I mean, the Note is the first born of phablets. I think Samsung has two great sizes and doesn't/shouldn't take the SGS4 to 5 inches.

    5" 1080p screen. cool as long as your trimming bezels and not making another Note 2.
    Add some Motorola quality radios, slim down the Touchwiz a bit, and add a 3300mah+ battery (it does not have to be cracker thin, it needs to last forever on a charge) and you have me waiting.
    Give us all we want and you will have us all as customers Sammy. Dont fall short like HTC and Moto just did. Please make this the phone to have.

    I can't see this happening unless Sammy is going to discontinue the Note and Frankesteinombine (I love making new words :biggrin:) the Galaxy S and Note into one machine which would, in my opinion, be a mistake. Keep the Note Phabletastic and keep the Galaxy S smaller but still large and continue to dominate.

    I'm sure whatever they have in store for CES will be good. It's a bonus that I'll actually be there this year. :) Can't wait!!!dancedroid

    Having a 5" GS4 and 5.5 N2/3 doesn't make much sense, and I can't see them increasing the Note much larger than it is already. There is a lot of bezel though, especially at the top and bottom that can be trimmed down.

    Off topic, but does anyone know if they have something similar to CES in New York?
