Samsung: Leaked roadmap was false, no I9250
No Samsung Superphone on the horizon after all.
Well, that's disappointing. After all the excitement of the alleged Samsung handset roadmap that leaked earlier this week promising nine new handsets and two new tablets, Samsung have come out and said it's all a load of cobblers.
"Some media have been reporting that Samsung is preparing to launch nine new smartphones and two new tablet devices," said Sammy in a press release. "While Samsung is continuously working on new devices for our customers, the details being cited are not accurate in this case."
Not that this completely rules out everything we heard about the roadmap - it's possible that when Samsung says "details cited" they're referring to insubstantial things like model numbers and release dates. But the Eeyore in us doubts Samsung would come out with a press release just to disavow some dodgy model numbers.
That means saying goodbye to the GT-I9250, the dual-core, 1.4GHz smartphone with its 4.65-inch display and its Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system; and goodbye as well to the GT-I9220, the handset-cum-tablet follow-up to the Galaxy Tab. We hardly knew ye.
