Earlier today we showed you leaked “evidence” that revealed Samsung may be working on a Galaxy Nexus successor – the quotation marks around the word evidence don’t imply the fact that the leaked document we saw is fake, just that we aren’t able to confirm those details at this time – and we now get to look at a similar rumor that mentions the handset. But this time around its Japanese carrier DoCoMo that has let it slip that it will be carrying multiple Nexus-branded devices this fall, which sounds awfully familiar – earlier this year we did hear that…

Sony-Xperia-GX

We’ve been hearing quite a lot about the Xperia GX ever since May, but for some reason Sony has delayed the new phone’s launch a couple of times already. The high-end Japan-bound flagship smartphone is, however, finally supposed to start shipping today, although NTT DoCoMo is still listing it as “not available”. If you’re a resident of the “Land of the Rising Sun” and you’re on the hunt for a spanking new phone with a lot of oomph and a cool design, you should keep a close eye on NTT DoCoMo’s website, because we’re betting that by the end of…

Most of today’s smartphone manufacturers think of only a couple of things when prepping a display.

Before we could even catch our breaths after the Galaxy S3’s pricing and availability announcement in Taiwan, Samsung has already announced the new flagship’s release on the most important mobile carrier in Japan, NTT Docomo. While it has failed to reveal the exact date when the S3 will hit NTT Docomo’s shelves and the device’s pricing in Japan, Samsung has mentioned a couple of very interesting technical details about the new phone. First of all, the Japanese version of the S3, codenamed SC-06D, will be powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 S4 processor. The “Krait” chipset will replace…

DoCoMo (Japan’s leading mobile phone service provider) will be asking Google Inc. for help in modifying its Android OS. Nikkei.com has earlier reported the reason behind this request is so DoCoMo smartphones running on Android OS will generate less data traffic. This request came after DoCoMo identified a free-of-charge voice communication Android app that intervened with the service of the provider last Wednesday. In addition to this, there are some Android apps that send out some control signals every three to five minutes despite not being used. As a result, the network encountered much of a strain by these apps….
