Samsung to unpack a new smartphone at IFA, I9250 perhaps

Samsung just published the video teaser for their Berlin Unpacked event that will take place on the eve, before the IFA 2011 kicks off. The video obviously points at the announcement of a new device and from what we can tell it should be the rumored Android-running I9250.

From the way people are holding the device- women are using both their hands, while the guy that's talking on it has placed two of his finger on the back - it becomes obvious that it is somewhat larger than your regular 4-inch phone. Yet it's still small enough to be held next to your ear while talking, so it's obviously not a tablet.

If you have been keeping track of recent rumors you'd know that Samsung supposedly have a device in the works that fits the description quite well. Of course, we are talking about the Samsung I9250, which should sport a 4.65" Super AMOLED of HD resolution (yeap, that's HD as in 1280 x 720 pixels).

This should also be Samsung's first foray in the world of Android Ice Cream sandwich. As far as latest rumors have it, the Samsung I9250 is only expected to hit the shelves in the 48th week of this year, which spans from 28th November to 4th December. Yet, Samsung usually announces its flagships a couple of months before their market availability so it's not inconceivable that we'll get the chance to see the I9250 for the first time at the IFA 2011 that starts on September 2nd.

And, with the successor of the 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab also expected to be announced at the German expo, we are certainly in for a nice time in the first week of September.

i know this is about the i9250 but how big is the screen for the i9220 because multiple sights say different screen sizes, im currently saving for it now, hopefully its better than the i9100 :)
