Samsung teases possible new Galaxy device for CES 2013

Teaser video promises 'something new'

Next month's Consumer Electronics Show may see the introduction of a new entry in Samsung's Galaxy line of Android-powered devices. That seems to be the takeaway from a new teaser video released by Samsung on Sunday, which doesn't reveal much in the way of details, but definitely points to CES 2013 and contains imagery suggestive of a new Galaxy device. The video (shown below) promises viewers that "something new" will be revealed beginning January 8 through January 11 next year, the same dates for which the Consumer Electronics Show is scheduled.

The video is largely dark, but its background appears to show an image of a Galaxy. It also shows dimmed images of Las Vegas, the site of CES. Beyond these two snippets, the teaser appears to give away nothing else.

For the past few months, rumors have circulated that Samsung was preparing to launch the Galaxy S IV early next year. Samsung revealed the Galaxy S III in May of this year, and the device quickly went on to brisk sales, moving 20 million units in 60 days. If Samsung does indeed reveal the Galaxy S IV at CES, that would be only eight months after the S III was revealed, and a rumored March launch date would have the device on shelves only ten months after its predecessor was shown off. An early reveal would presumably hurt sales of the Galaxy S III as buyers wait for the newer device.

Previous Galaxy S IV rumors have the device sporting a 5-inch 1920x1080 Full HD display with a pixel density well in excess of that seen on Apple's iPhone 5. Samsung has consistently denied Galaxy S IV rumors, dismissing them as "media speculation" and "not true."
