Rumor Claims Samsung Will Unveil New Mid-Range Smartphone at CES 2013
If you're a fan of Samsungsmartphones, you may be hoping that a new high-end device will debut at CES next month. We aren't sure if a new high-end phone will turn up, we think not. Rumors
are pointing to a new mid-range device to launch at the show.
The mid-range device is said to be called the Galaxy Frame and to carry model number GT-S6810 and use a pearl white finish. If you're hoping for hard specifications, unfortunately the name, model number, and color are all that we know. For, at least all the rumors we have for now.
It would make sense for Samsung to usher in a new mid-range mobile device, with the Galaxy S3 still selling well it doesn't necessarily need to replace its flagship smartphone at this time. Many manufacturers also wait until Mobile World Congress a few weeklater to unveil new high-end devices.
