Samsung today released a video teasing the impending launch of its next Galaxy smartphone.
The video features pictures of galaxies and vague statements, such as: “Truly smart technology becomes a natural part of life” and “With a technology that fits in this easily, you can easily stand out from everyone else.”
That last line is superimposed over a flock of sheep, suggesting that Samsung could have a refresh of its standard form factor on tap with this latest offering. Also rumored is the possibility of a quad-core processor and higher-resolution screen.
Samsung’s mobile handset business has been growing by leaps and bounds. In its Q4 2011 earnings report, the company said it had sold 34 million smartphones in the last quarter of 2011. Equally impressive has been the performance of the Samsung Galaxy Note, which was selling at an average rate of 1 million units per month five months after its release.
As of Q4 2011, Samsung was the second largest seller of mobile devices behind Nokia. Samsung controlled 19.4 percent of the mobile devices market at the end of last year, according to Gartner.
Samsung is set to unveil the next Galaxy smartphone at a May 3 event in London.
