The long may soon be over as tech giant Samsung hinted that Samsung Galaxy S4 will be released early next year.

Samsung has released a teaser video hinting at the company's plans for the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 in January. The company promises 'something new' for fans of its products.

The said video is short on details and heavy on marketing, but it seems likely that the company is planning to use the event to unveil a next-generation Android device. It is also possible that Samsung will dazzle consumers worldwide with a new line of products.

Although the Samsung Galaxy S3 was released just over half a year ago, it faces some stiff competition in the Android smartphone market. Google has launched its own Nexus 4, which sports almost the specification of the Galaxy S3 but with a significantly cheaper tag price.

It is initially speculated that Korea's tech giant will lift the lid off the new smartphone mid next year, most probably around April or May. This is just right to maximize the profits for Samsung Galaxy S3.

It was previously reported that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will sport a 5-inch full HD display with full 1080p and a whopping 440 pixels per inch. The device will be powered by two quad core chips.

The Galaxy S4 might also sport a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, which will intimate other smartphones with 8MP back shooters.

The handset should come with a minimum of 2GB RAM, although there are reports that Samsung is testing an unidentified smartphone with 3GB RAM.

Samsung also began mass producing 128GB memory chips for smartphones and tablets earlier this year, and we could see storage capacities that high as early as next year. With this, the Samsung will continue its reign in producing devices with large storage capacity.

However, Samsung kept mum on the rumors surrounding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4. There is no official comment from the South Korea's tech giant.
