Did Samsung Tease the Galaxy S III Smartphone at CES?

Samsung's managed to build a successful line brand its Galaxy line of smartphones and tablets, which is probably why the tech world is so excited to get a glimpse of the Galaxy S3, the next iteration of the company's famous Galaxy S smartphone. Though Samsung did show off a range of products at CES (WiFi-enabled washing machine, anyone?), the Galaxy S3 wasn't there. We assumed that this was because Sammy was planning to save that for Mobile World Congress next month. However, it seems the S3 may have been at CES after all.

The following promotional video shows the highlights of Samsung's CES press conference. Around 06:50, you'll see the press conference's segment on smart cameras and camcorders, including a camera that can be controlled by your smartphone. At 07:13, you'll see a demonstration of this technology from an actor using a phone that is believed by many to be the Galaxy S3. Sure, it could be a rendering, but is this what the Galaxy S3 will look like when it eventually makes its way out into the light of day?

Rumored specs for the Galaxy S3 include 2GB of RAM, a 12MP camera, and a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display, NFC and 4G LTE. Stay tuned, and we'll keep you posted. In the meantime, check out the video below.

    Had Galaxy S2. The fastest and most beautiful phone to me yet. Gave it to my wife, never got back :) Will definitely look into S3 when it comes out. Can't wait for some reviews.

    Hmm.

    Looks like a rendering, especially with the rounded corners of the display.

    Played with a friends Galaxy Note the other day. Lovely thing it was, amazing sized screen, so slim it was crazy, yet totally solid feel. This rendering does look like a cut-down Note.

    We will see...

    Have the S2 with me. The size it's perfect for me, even a 5" screen would still be fine. Have deep pockets, lol.

    Anyway, let's hope the S3 is an upgrade from every angle and not just a step up.

    Oh, and hope they ditch the 3D idea on it!

    Cheers!

    So the battery life will be what - like 6 hours between full charges?

    I really wish the smartphone developers would focus more on the battery life instead of adding things that drain your battery faster.

    Just saying...

    12MP camera... I wish companies would start educate customers that 'too many' PM, espscially in tiny lens smart phones and Pads are not actually that helpful or desirable.

    Have yet to see a cell phone that can take photos that come close to even a low end SLR or even a decent compact.
    There is just no room for the needed optics on these small devices and consumers should learn that before spending $600 on a phone.
