Samsung Squashes Galaxy S4 Rumors To Keep S3 Sales Hot

By  | 

If you want to get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy S4 which yesterday was reported to be coming out in March, you may have to wait a while longer. CNET reports that Samsung have said that they are not launching the Samsung Galaxy S4 in March. They posted on Twitter that the rumours about the release of a follow up device to the S3 so quickly were not true.

Samsung Galaxy S3 not headed for early retirement, S4 coming much later

Only yesterday it was reported that an official from Samsung who had not been named said that Samsung were getting ready to launch the Galaxy S4 in February in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress. They also said that it would be in stores around a month later.

Samsung of course could be just trying to dull down the rumor so as not to spoil the sales streak of the Samsung Galaxy S3, the hottest selling smartphone this year so far. However would they release the follow up to the successful S3 so soon just to stay ahead of the curve?

The Samsung Galaxy S3 only came out in May 2012 and Samsung have said that they would be releasing a 64GB version of the handset before the year is out. Samsung have sold more than 20 million units of the Galaxy S3 to date. They are expecting around 30 million sales by the end of the year. It makes sense that Samsung would want to get as much out of the handset as they can before releasing a newer model.
