Well, now that the iPhone 5, iPad mini and Nexus 4 (among countless others) are finally here, the rumour mill needs something else to focus on – something new and exciting.
Enter: the Samsung Galaxy S IV, the inevitable and possibly-but-probably-not-imminent successor to the massively popular Samsung Galaxy S III.
To be fair, this isn’t actually the first time we’ve written about the Artist Presumed to Be Called the Samsung Galaxy S IV.
Back in mid-September, the Samsung Galaxy S IV was tipped to launch at Mobile World Congress 2013. An unnamed official reportedly yelled: “Samsung is ready to unveil the next Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S4, at early next year’s mobile world congress (MWC) in the Spanish city of Barcelona.”
However, Samsung quickly moved to dispel the rumours, saying (loosely translated from Korean): “Please note that the speculation reported by some media regarding the Galaxy S III's successor is purely rumour, and simply not true. We have not announced anything, so why spread these rumours?”
Now Korea’s DDaily reports that Samsung is testing something called “Adonis”, a quad-core ARM 15 CPU based on 28nm manufacturing tech. It makes sense to assume it’ll debut in a suitably meaty flagship device, so why not the Samsung Galaxy S IV?
Doesn’t seem too far-fetched, though we don’t expect the Samsung Galaxy S IV to become a reality till April or May 2013 – six or more months from now. As such, holding of breath is not recommended.
