Samsung pours cold water on Galaxy S IV rumor

Samsung pours cold water on Galaxy S IV rumor

Samsung doesn’t plan to announce the Galaxy S IV at Mobile World Congress 2013, at least not officially.  Speaking from a Twitter account yesterday, Samsung’s Samsung Tomorrow  advised that yesterday’s hot rumor was just that, a rumor.

If you’re not keen on your Korean, the statement above can be translated to “Please note that some media reported speculation that the Galaxy S Ⅲ subsequent models will be released “in a simple rumor is not true. Fixed’m not doing anything, why spread these rumors?”

Things seemed pretty strange to us yesterday when we first learned of the rumor, and we didn’t know how much credibility to put into the claim.  Considering the Galaxy S III is selling like crazy right now, Samsung would cannibalize its own sales if word officially got out that something bigger and better was coming soon.  Of course, that’s actually the case as we fully anticipate a Galaxy S IV (or S 4) in 2013.  What’s more, we would be willing to bet that Samsung goes with a standalone event in the same manner as this year’s model.
