Samsung denies Galaxy S IV rumors

Samsung dismisses report as 'media speculation'

Samsung has dismissed earlier reports that the company would be releasing the follow up to this year's Galaxy S III early next year. In a post to the company's Twitter feed, the South Korean electronics giant called reports that the Galaxy S IV would be revealed in February "media speculation" and "not true." The supposed Galaxy S IV leak was viewed by some as a means of mitigating the hype surrounding the iPhone 5 following that device's phenomenal performance in pre-order sales over the weekend.

The S IV report came from The Korea Times, which has a mixed record when it comes to predicting Samsung news. Previously, the Times leaked news that Samsung was working on its own Facebook competitor, but the company later came out to firmly deny such reports.

According to the Times, Samsung's Galaxy S IV would ship with a 5-inch display, larger than the one seen on the Galaxy S III and an inch larger than the one seen on the new iPhone. It would also feature LTE compatibility.

The rumors had the S IV shipping in February, only nine months after the company released the S III. The S III has gone on to solid sales itself, moving 20 million units in its first 100 days, with expectations of 30 million by the end of the year.
