Samsung Galaxy S 4 rumors officially denied

Samsung Galaxy S 4 rumors officially denied
Well, what do you know, the rumors about a Samsung Galaxy S 4 smartphone coming in early 2013 have been put to rest. This morning, the Korean company took to Twitter and stated (in Korean) that the speculation being spread by the media is not true. What started the rumors was a post in the Korean Times, claiming that the Galaxy S III successor was to be announced at MWC2013 in Barcelona and launched internationally in March at the latest, with an even bigger display and a quad-core Exynos processor.

With the success of the Galaxy S lineup, there is little doubt that Samsung will one day release a follow-up to its current top-of-the-line smartphone, yet a March release seemed rather unlikely, which is why we didn't buy the rumor in the first place. After all, the Galaxy S III was announced in May of 2012 and released shortly after, so a March 2013 release for its successor would have been a bit early.

So there you have it, Samsung Galaxy S III owners: you can now rest assured that your shiny smartphone will not be replaced with a newer model only 10 months after launch. And those who were hoping to see the fourth Galaxy S smartphone earlier than expected, better brace yourselves for a lengthier wait.

The Korean language script looks cool .. But just couldn't understand anything .. Regarding the message it is just stating the obvious ..

Don't fall into the trap I'm in. You see a upcoming phone and decide to get it but as it's about to be released another phone is announced so you wait for that. It's a never ending cycle and you'll never buy a phone.

I am not buying this refute. It would be in Samsung's best interest to release it earlier. May release leaves too little space for ruling the market if Apple sticks to late december for iPhone releases. With march release for the galaxy, both phones would have about six months left for one before the other.

The article tells you what they are basically saying on Twitter. That's all you need to know. Also, why would Apple post in Korean on Twitter? They are an American company.
