February 20, 2014 12:31 am

Samsung Electronics Co is set to release a new device with a larger 5.2-inch screen and sharper display than the current Galaxy S4, Bloomberg has reported, citing a person with direct knowledge of the matter. The new phone, with an improved battery and camera, will be released about the same time as an upgraded Galaxy Gear smartwatch, the person said. Samsung may start selling the new phone for less than previous models in the S series after encouragement by at least one wireless carrier, said a second person familiar with the matter.
