You were probably looking at one of their older models (GX-1S, GX-1L, GX-10, GX-20). Of course, you never know, they could have been new models being field tested that haven't been announced yet.

Interesting. I missed the "on display" part. Yea, could be. I haven't noticed any official announcements noting that Samsung and Pentax do not plan on continuing to jointly develop dSLR models. So, they may have been rebadged Pentax models like the K-x.

Samsung is one of the exhibitors at next month's PMA show. So, if they do have new dSLR models, they'll probably announce them there (if not sooner):
