Samsung's Galaxy S IV contains several RF Micro (RFMD +5.2%) components, RF Micro effectively brags in an PR that's lifting shares. Though RF Micro doesn't mention the S IV by name, the fact the PR (which follows yesterday's S IV launch) states the chips - a 3G/4G power amplifier, multiple standalone 4G amplifiers, and an antenna control chip - will go into a "recently-announced fourth-generation flagship smartphone platform" from a leading manufacturer leaves little doubt as to what's being discussed. Skyworks (SWKS -1.5%), an important S III supplier (and perhaps an S IV supplier as well), is lower.
