Samsung teases new TV and more ahead of CES
Samsung has been showing off some of the new products that will be on display at CES 2013 early next month. The new products include new Smart TVs and a new version of the ChatOn app. ChatOn is a cross-platform messaging application that has been turned into a social media network with version 2.0.
ChatOn 2.0 is available in over 200 countries and 60 different languages. Samsung describes the service as a micro social networking platform allowing users to create profiles and post status updates that friends can comment on. The new version of the application is easier-to-use with improved ability to leave comments and add content such as photos or video.
Photos or video can be placed in "the trunk" on ChatOn before being shared on other social networks such as Facebook. The app also has a multi-screen feature allowing chatting with up to five connected devices on a single account. Users can invite friends to conversations using the app from different platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
Another new product Samsung is showing off is the Smart Hub updated home screen. The new Smart Hub allows users to watch live programming and movies while using apps and looking at personal photos. Samsung is also promising that the Smart Hub will offer a “more intuitive experience with various contents, live TV broadcasts, VOD, apps, Internet and such.”
Samsung is also expected to show off a
flexible smartphone screen
at CES 2013.

Not sure what you mean by I agree with you or trailer off. Yes we need better battery life, but it could easily be solved right now, today, by putting a bigger battery in the phone.
Do you really think 11mm thickness is excessive, for a capacity of 5000mAh? That's 2.38x the SGS3. Each mm can add about 850mAh of capacity, starting with the golden standard of 9mm/3300mAh, so take your pick.
As for A15 being more efficient, that's true but irrelevant. There is a TDP limitation for phones, dunno what it is, 1W or something. Expect manufacturers to saturate it.
Increased resolution does increase productivity and I would like to see higher DPI in general, but I think there's a huge opportunity to attack bezel size and battery life first.
