The Samsung Galaxy S4, rumored to be heading to shelves next year to replace the Samsung Galaxy S3, won’t be making its debut at CES 2013 in Las Vegas in January. Instead, it appears that Samsung will focus on its other product lines including televisions.
A report from CNET claims that Samsung won’t be showing off the Samsung Galaxy S4 at CES 2013, something that should not come as a surprise given previous Galaxy S4 rumored launch dates and the fact that the Galaxy S3 is still selling well.
Evidently, Samsung will use CES 2013 to show off several new electronics not called the Samsung Galaxy S4 including new televisions. The company also was rumored to be showing off its new 1080p AMOLED display which very likely will be the display technology found on the Galaxy S4. However, it appears that the company’s announcements do not include any mobile news so it could be that the company remains silent on the matter come January.
Samsung recently debuted a video in the form of a teaser video for CES that seemed to point to something happening at the trade show but it appears that it has absolutely nothing to do with the Galaxy S4.
So far, the Galaxy S4 has seen two rumored launch months. The first, February, the month that Mobile World Congress is set to take place in Barcelona, Spain. Samsung used the conference as a launching pad for the Samsung Galaxy S2 and it could be that it uses it this year for the Galaxy S4. The other rumored launch month is April, one month before the May launch month that Samsung used for this year’s Galaxy S3.
Neither launch window has been confirmed by Samsung which means that a Galaxy S4 launch date remains up in the air. There are rumors about a Galaxy S4 release date as soon as April so at this point, both February and April make sense as far as an announcement is concerned.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is rumored to be replacing the Galaxy S3 with some powerful new features including a full HD 1080p display that may be 4.99-inches as well as unbreakable, a quad-core processor, 13MP camera and Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, Google’s rumored name for its latest piece of Android software.
