    Just hours ahead of Samsung's official unveiling of the Galaxy S IV there's an avalanche of leaks being unleashed upon us, all demonstrated on the Chinese GT-I9502 -- which according to some reports will not be the real deal. But let's cut to the chase: the lock screen on the S III and Note II (and pretty much all other Galaxy phones) had a nature theme to it (inherited from TouchWiz Nature UX) and they mimicked water droplets. This year it looks like Samsung stuck with the nature theme but the lock screen appears to be a rainbow. Much more interesting than that is the floating touch, ...

    Not only did LG announce an eye-tracking / eye recognition feature to land on the Optimus G Pro before Samsung could make its official announcement of the S IV, rumored to have such capabilities, but it is now bringing the battle right to Samsung's heart with its latest move. Trolling? Maybe! Not more than Samsung's Apple-related commercials (and others) for that matter. Marketing? For sure! Times Square is where a huge gathering is expected today for the Galaxy S IV unveiling -- and where our own Adam Lein will be, joining us live from the crowd for our hangout -- and it's filled with ...

    Update: According to recent reports based on more "sources", this is just one of the prototypes which are out there, and not the real deal. More "R" category, but exciting, nonetheless. We've seen images and even videos claiming to depict the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S IV (granted, the Chinese dual-SIM version) and the specs have be subject to speculation for quite some time now. However, today we have some new, alleged, pictures, representing a purported representation of the upcoming Android flagship. Will it be the real deal? Make sure to follow our exhaustive coverage of the launch ...

    Probably the most important Android phone release of the year is nearly upon us. Samsung is going to unveil the highly anticipated follow up to last year's successful Galaxy S III, the Galaxy S IV. It will happen today in New York and we'll be here, there, and all over, to tell you everything about it. We've done it with the occasion of HTC's One launch and we're doing it again. We're sitting down in a public, live but closed hangout -- meaning you can watch us in real time but you can't talk to us -- to tell you all about the Galaxy S IV, as it happens, and bring you our unique ...

    Despite a handful of high-end flagship smartphones currently on the market and just over the horizon, all eyes are on two companies this week. HTC and Samsung. The rivalry between these two monster Android manufacturers is unparalleled. HTC was once a well-known, thriving brand in Androidland. And while the name has hardly lost any importance, the company's finances and standings in market share have slipped over the last two years, largely thanks to the booming success of Samsung and its popular Galaxy brands. In February last year, while Samsung was polishing off the final refinements ...

    Tomorrow's the big day. March 14. Now sure, if you're a math fan you're already excited about the opportunity to celebrate your favorite irrational constant, but this year in particular, the rest of us have reason to look forward to the fourteenth as well, with Samsung running its big Unpacked event. Short of out and saying it, the company's done pretty much everything it can to confirm that this will be the grand unveiling of the Galaxy S IV, the company's 2013 Android flagship. That's going to be great to hear, and we're itching for the opportunity to confirm the oh, so many details ...

    Sometimes ya ain't got time for dilly-dallyin', spit-swappin', or tall-tale-tellin'. Sometimes even dropping in a few time codes is too much to ask. Because sometimes the meat just needs to get out to the masses. This is one of those special times, and the meat we're putting on the market is our jawing. Our opinions. Our stories. And the subject this week is the two biggest Android smartphone launches of the year, coming from the two biggest sworn enemies of the entire Android landscape. That's right: this is the episode where we talk HTC One vs Galaxy S IV. We've had the One for just a ...

    Tomorrow is the big day for all Android fans around the world as Samsung, whether you're a fan of the brand or not, is announcing this year's flagship phone, the Galaxy S IV. There were countless rumors and leaks in the past few weeks but we're sure the South Korean company has a couple of aces left up its sleeve. The latest rumor tries to confirm previous hear-say about the processor which will power the Galaxy S IV. Despite Samsung went with a standardized choice last year, with the Note II (same CPU across regions), this latest rumor seems to revisit the information according to which ...

    The Galaxy S IV is nearly upon us, and in under three days we'll finally learn just what Samsung's managed to cook up for its 2013 Android heavyweight. As you're no doubt aware, dozens upon dozens of rumors have attempted to divine the GS4's feature set over the past – well, pretty much since the GS3 first arrived. One of those that has managed to come up a few times recently is the idea that the GS4 could support floating touch interactions: using a touchscreen that's sensitive enough to detect the presence of a finger as it hovers above the screen, before making actual contact. Of all ...

    NFC is about standard on all high-end Android smartphones nowadays and the Samsung Galaxy S III has it, and so does the Note II. However, Samsung implemented the functionality differently on the S III than on the Note II. While the Galaxy S III has the antenna inside the battery itself the Note II has it on the battery cover touching the phone via two contacts. The Samsung Galaxy S IV appears to follow the Galaxy S III route, if the battery on the leaked Chinese version is any indication. We've just learned that said battery is rated at 2,600mAh and the Near Field Communication call-out on ...

    What does this mean? The international or global variant might or might not feature the same battery as the one powering the device we've recently seen leaked in pictures and a video. However, if it will, it will be powered by a 2,600mAh battery. According to the image above, the battery inside the GT-I9502 is one of 9.88Wh (watt-hour). Thanks to a neat formula (mAh = Wh x 1000 / V or milliamp-hour = watt-hour x 1000 / V) we find out that the battery is rated at 2,600mAh (9.88 x 1000 / 3.8). This is a step-up from the 2,100mAh battery on the Galaxy S III but let's not forget that about ...

    Yesterday an alleged Samsung Galaxy S IV leak was making the rounds in the internet and the device was a dual-SIM phone destined for the Chinese market, dubbed the GT-I9502. Now that same device has popped up in a YouTube video just as Samsung started to officially tease the phone with its own render. Yesterday's device is being handled in today's video, with clear naming: Galaxy S IV, probably a Duos phone, headed to China Unicom, according to the title of the video. We can see the dual-SIM construction once the battery cover is removed as well as the battery (but no rating can be read ...

    This maybe part of the planned marketing hype for the March 14 special New York Unpacked event or it might just be some damage control after seeing the Samsung Galaxy S IV leaks yesterday. Either way, today's image, an official one at that, nicely complements the leaked images we've seen the other day. The official Samsung Twitter account has posted the above image and there's no doubt we're looking at the Galaxy S IV. It is also matching the device we're recently seen, however, Samsung's image, on purpose or not, doesn't seem to show off the texture we've already seen (regardless of how ...
