Owners of the unlocked GSM Galaxy Nexus should start checking for updates, as Android 4.1.2 is coming to the device via an over the air update today. Seeing that the Nexus 7 received the same update last week, this is hardly a surprise.
Last weekend Android Authority reported on leaked promotional pictures of the Asus PadFone 2 and the PadFone Station. We also showed a brief video that had a closer look at the device. Now we have a two new videos that give a more hands-on look at the PadFone and the docking station.
In only a few months some of you should be able to enjoy the “buttery smooth” experience of the latest Android version on a handheld that’ll only cost around $220. With no contract. The bad news? It might not enjoy a large-scale release, being for now only confirmed as hitting Brazil.
A couple of pictures emerged on Picasa that supposedly show a Sony-made Nexus device. Titled Sony Nexus X, the images show a phone that shares a lot of the design elements of the Xperia T and other recent devices launched by the Japanese giant, but in one of the pictures, you can see that the phone sports Google’s logo.
Samsung has finally brought the greatly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to South East Asia in general and Malaysia in particular. The 5.5-inch smartphone running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be available starting October 19 for RM2299.
Already confirmed as coming soon to AT&T in the US as the Galaxy Rugby Pro, the new 4-incher is now rumored to be released on two major Canadian carriers before Ma Bell. Telus will most likely get the honor of launching the Galaxy Rugby LTE first, sometime “at the end of October”.
The release of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung’s flagship phone hasn’t gone as smoothly as the manufacturer – and owners of the device – expected. After the latest Android OS for the Galaxy S3 was pushed out in Poland about three weeks ago, the update came to a screeching halt – save for the 3G variant of Galaxy S3 that received Jelly Bean in South Korea afterwards.
LG’s first Jelly Bean-running Android device will be the upcoming Nexus 4 – which will run Android 4.2 out of the box, a software version that will still be part of Jelly Bean according to rumors – but what about other LG Android handsets, especially high-end ones?
We keep talking about the upcoming flagship Nexus smartphone, a device that we keep calling LG Nexus 4, without it being officially confirmed. Not even the name of the product is official yet, which is why we’re still naming it the LG Nexus 4, although there are many – maybe too many – leaks detailing the handset.
While we can’t be certain, what may be the LG Optimus L9 release date was revealed by a leaked roadmap of T-Mobile’s hardware release dates.
