Since its announcement, the iPhone 5 has been going over like gangbusters, but samsung’s counterpunch might not be far behind. According to a report by the Korea Times, Samsung’s new Galaxy S IV flagship will be coming out in March 2013, possibly with an even bigger screen.
According to an anonymous executive, the Galaxy S IV is due to be announced at Mobile World Congress in Spain, where the Galaxy S III was announced the year before. The Galaxy S IV might get a boost in size, gaining .2 inches on the Galaxy S III to wind up at 5 inches on the dot; that’s creeping up to Galaxy Note (5.3 inches) territory. This seems to be the logical next iteration on the formula that’s been treating them pretty well, so these rumours basically line up with reasonable assumptions. We’ll just have to wait to see whether they’ve got any surprises in store. [Korea Times via Engadget]
