There’s a very exciting race currently going on for the first few phones powered by quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processors to get official launches. Right now, LG’s Optimus G is in pole-position for the number one spot into the limelight, although the number of contenders is growing by the day, with the Xiaomi Mi-Two, Pantech Vega R3 and Oppo Find 5’s wide releases being only a matter of time.
If you’re in the UK and you’re itching to have a new unit in your hand soon, we have good news: the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE has been named as an EE exclusive. No that’s not a typo. Everything Everywhere, the spanking new 4G network in the UK, is upping the ante and delivering a heck of an exclusive offer with the help of Huawei.
UK mobile provider O2 is teaming up with HTC to start selling an unnamed, announced phone that comes without a charger in the box. The device will be released sometime by the end of this year. The idea here is to help save the planet by reducing the number of chargers circulated.
A week ago, Samsung launched its new TV ads that promote the Galaxy S3 at the expense of the iPhone 5. The commercial, which we knew it was in production for a while now, adhered to the same scenario: Samsung poking fun at Apple’s customers that line up in front of stores to get the latest iPhone while reminding everyone that “the next big thing is already here.”
Last week we reported on the rumored LG Venice coming to Boost Mobile. We now have official word that the Venice is in fact launching on October 10th. As previously believed, this is a renamed Optimus L7.
The latest leak doesn’t bring anything new in the specs department, as it only shows a blurred front view of the One X+. But yes, it looks like the phone is still heading to T-Mobile.
This isn’t the first time we’re telling you that Samsung and Google could be working more closely together to fight against existing and future Apple-related legal threats, as we heard that the two giants will work together in this regard a few months ago when the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was banned in the U.S.
One look at this thing and you’ll be singing the praises of ASUS no doubt. However, the Transphone is not meant to be a ripoff of the better-known Padfone, it just happened to be made in the same era as the latter. At least, that’s what ExoTablet, the company behind Transphone wants you to believe. Whether or not they will be successful in selling more units than ASUS is still up for grabs.
Oppo Find 5 confirmed with 1080p display and S4 Pro processor, release date and pricing still unknown
LG’s Optimus G might get the honor of being the first ever Snapdragon S4 Pro-powered phone to enjoy a wide release, but it shouldn’t take long for its awesome spec sheet to be undercut.
Providing some calm for consumers who are still worried about the possibility of losing their data from such seemingly simple hack, Samsung has issued a statement about the one-click reset hack.
