Fun begins post Christmas on January 8, 2013, the day when the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) will kick off in Las Vegas. Myriad of tablets and smartphones are lined up for release on that day. Dr. Gadget has a look.

Samsung Galaxy S4
Will it or won’t? Grapevine is abuzz with rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S4 sporting a 5-inch super screen. The South Korean electronics giant will get a major head start over most of its competitors next year when it launches the next generation Galaxy series smartphone.

Besides the monster screen, it might have a faster processor as compared to the S3 and a better camera. It is expected to remain in news for some time from now on.

ZTE Grand S
ZTE, the Chinese mobile maker, will unleash its flagship mobile at the CES. As per the sparse details available at the moment, the Grand S too will sport a five-inch screen. The phone will have ‘traditional Chinese style’, claims the CES posting; what that means will be revealed at the expo itself.

Asus Windows 8 tablets
Windows 8 seems to be the flavor of tablets this season as many device makers have embraced the latest OS from Microsoft. And yes, Asus is known for going grand at CES expos, so expect something grandiose this time as well.

HTC M7
2013 could be the make-or-break year for HTC and how the HTC M7 fares could set the course for the troubled device maker. This 1080p full HD device may debut at either the CES or Mobile World Congress.

Samsung Galaxy tab update
Will there be an upgrade to Samsung Galaxy tabs at CES 2013? Perhaps yes, because one is due for some time. The likes of Google and Amazon have made a dent into Sammy’s market and it would want to reclaim that from both of them. What we expect – a display that beats Apple’s Retina Display, Android Jelly Bean and slim design.
