Will there be a Samsung version of K-7?

I was browsing the net for Samsung FF news, when I found a mention of what Samsung exec Young Bae-Kim said last year:

In the interview, Kim made it known that the Korean company would be bringing a new DSLR to market in conjunction with development partner Pentax in 2009. According to the exec, the next Samsung GX model will likely be more compact than its predecessors for starters. Likewise, Kim notes in the conversation that the 2009 will be a "bigger change" from what Samsung is currently offering than the GX20 was from the GX10.
This briefs the interview's contents but the link to the original interview is dead:

New Samsung DSLR in 2009, no full-frame forthcoming

Now doesn't that sound exactly like a Samsung branded K-7? How much later were the Samsung versions of K10D and K20D released after the Pentax version?

There will probably be a Samsung version but most of the Samsung copies are more expensive in the U.S. anyways (not so in E.U)
