Yesterday, Samsung dropped a teaser video talking about “something new” the company would have to share at January’s upcoming CES expo. While we’re very curious to see what Samsung might be working on for its Galaxy S IV, we didn’t get our hopes up that it might be in the company’s CES plans, especially considering the circumstances under which Samsung debuted the Galaxy S III this past May. Well, it looks like our instinct were right, as CNET is reporting that it’s learned that the next Galaxy S phone is not on Samsung’s agenda for the CES.
CNET doesn’t go into detail as to just how it received this confirmation, but it speaks with the authority that suggests getting word from a trusted source within Samsung itself. The site claims that not only is the Galaxy S IV not going to make an appearance, but Samsung won’t have anything particularly exciting to share about mobile devices in general, focusing on products like those in its TV lineup, instead.
That’s not that hard to believe at all, but it’s still somewhat of a letdown for those of you who had been holding out hope at getting an early look at what’s almost sure to be an Android blockbuster.
