We talked quite a lot about the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G before its launch on September 19, but ever since then we didn’t hear much about the 4-inch slider. Despite equipping it with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Krait CPU, Sammy didn’t manage to draw many tech users towards the mid-ranger, with the $150 on-contract price tag being slightly prohibitive.
It’s been a long and agonizing wait for Galaxy S Blaze 4G owners, but it now seems that the 4-inch mid-ranger is finally ready to get that much awaited software bump.

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.
A mysterious Samsung tablet, the SGH-T779, recently made a stop at FCC. What tablet could it be and where exactly is it heading for? After some digging, said device may turn out to be the 4G variant of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
