samsung Galaxy-Note-2-mock-up

Mockup by GSMArena The Galaxy Note 2 is the next big thing coming from Samsung, quite literally. The device is set to boast a whopping 5.5-inch screen, but its actual size will not increase, thanks to a thinner bezel. Moreover, we suspect that the Note 2 will come rather soon. As we’ve told you in our Galaxy Note 2 rumor roundup, Samsung has scheduled an Unpacked event on August 30, which seems like the best occasion to launch the magnificent successor of the Note. Now, PhoneArena has spotted an interesting entry in GLBenchmark. A device that identified itself as Samsung…

samsung jasper leak

First leaked in a Bluetooth SIG filing in April and then again in an FCC appearance in June, the Samsung Jasper (SCH-I200) is clearly getting close to a release on Verizon’s LTE network. An image leaked on Twitter by @evleaks gives up some clues about this new mid-ranger from Samsung. Besides the conspicuous Verizon branding, we can see that the Jasper forgoes the traditional search soft button, for an ICS-inspired “three-dot” menu key. Speaking of which, the SCH-I200 will clearly come with Ice Cream Sandwich on board, treated with Samsung’s customary TouchWiz overlay. The leak also gives away some of…

Samsung Galaxy note

Samsung has announced that it would be pushing back the Android 4.0 update for the Galaxy Note to the second quarter of this year, offering instead a “Premium Suite” of S-note apps that extend the functionality of the S-pen. The official update may be just around the corner (we are now in Q2, after all), but if you can’t wait to get your first bite of ice-cream sandwich goodness on the Galaxy Note, you won’t have wait to any longer, provided you are willing to engage in some good ole ROM flashing. Courtesy of Rootzwiki, we now have a leak…

samsung-galaxy-S2-skyrocket

RootzWiki Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket owners have probably been sitting on the edge of their seats for the last couple of days, with the announcement from AT&T that the Skyrocket is one of the 10 devices in the carrier’s lineup that will get ICS over the coming months. But wait no longer you must, since the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM has made its way to RootzWiki. It appears that the leaked ICS ROM is the real deal. Those who have updated their Skyrocket using the leaked ROM seem to believe that it’s the official 4.03 firmware for…

Droid RAZR

Do you remember this bad boy? In late 2004, Motorola dropped this clamshell, flip-phone, into the phone market. Immediately this device became wildly popular and the Motorola RAZR was quick to become the “best-selling clamshell phone in the world”. Bearing the same popularity in mind, Motorola is preparing to release a smartphone under a similar name. Rumors suggest that the Motorola Spyder, Droid RAZR, will be “iconic” like it’s predecessor. Motorola has managed to pack a 4.3 inch 960 x 540 pixel Super AMOLED display, 4G LTE, a dual core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, and an 8…

att-leaked-roadmap-for-q4

At least six new Android 2.3 Gingerbread devices are falling upon AT&T this fall (or late summer), according to an alleged AT&T roadmap detailing the devices’ internal codenames, operating systems, display resolution, RAM, camera resolution, battery capacity, HSDPA category, and release period. The screenshot of the alleged roadmap was leaked to Pocketnow and shows that two devices each come from Samsung and Pantech, and one each from Motorola and Huawei. The two upcoming Samsung devices are something we have become familiar with lately. One is the Samsung Singa (SGH-I777), whose handset number suggests that it’s the AT&T variant of the…

Android-ice-cream-sandwich

Some screenshots of what seems to be Ice Cream Sandwich, Google’s yet to be released Android version made it online this week at Android Police and RootzWiki. Both sites however confirmed that their photos are really of the highly-anticipated OS and that they come from a credible source. So what details about ICS are revealed with the leaked photos? The most obvious change is the blue user interface, plus the notifications bar was really altered for ICS. Google also has yet to release what Android version number ICS will carry, but the build number on the About menu says IRK36B….

We’re all familiar with roadmaps, at least in the tech sense. They’re the documents that companies use to indicate what they’ll be doing for the entire year. So it’s quite a treat for enthusiasts if one of them leaks. Like just what happened with LG’s. The entire 2011 smartphone roadmap is definitely an interesting document and should get any fan excited. With seven phones lined up for release, it should get anyone with interest in Android phones excited. First up is the LG K – which seems to be up there with the Nexus 3 in terms of how high-end…
