No one can really question the success of the Galaxy series of smartphones from Samsung. Numbers represent an ever-growing tendency from the initial Galaxy S to the Galaxy S II (and Galaxy Note). The South Korean company is determined to capitalize on that buzz as it expects record sales for its current flagship, the Galaxy S III.
JK Shin, head of telecommunications at Samsung, expects more than ten million Galaxy S III units sold in July, Reuters reports. While it isn’t clear what the wording “cumulative [...]
After publishing the source yesterday for the AT&T and T-Mobile variants of the Galaxy S III, Samsung is now also pushing out the kernel for the Sprint flavor of the phone. It is available in the Samsung Open Source Release Center at the source link below for everyone to grab and dismantle.
With three out of four already published, we are waiting for the Verizon Galaxy S III source to be published too. And, while we wait for the phones, we can sit back and let the developers do their thing with all the bits and pieces for us to flash, test and feed our [...]
Opposed to the International Samsung Galaxy S III which packs a quad-core Exynos SoC, the American variants — including the AT&T and T-Mobile versions we’re referring to here — pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core SoC but an additional gigabyte of RAM. You could see an initial face-off between them just a couple of hours ago and, at a first glance, there is no real difference between the phones.
Samsung has made the source codes for the AT&T and T-Mobile variants public. This means that, from this point on, we can count down the days until super fast [...]
You might know Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. as Foxconn, the company that produces Apple’s iPhones, iPads and some other great products like Microsoft’s Xbox or Sony’s PlayStation. In a recent annual shareholder’s meeting, Chairman Terry Gou told China Times, without bothering to dress it up a bit, that consumers would better “wait for the launch of the iPhone 5” because “the new model will put Samsung’s Galaxy III to shame”.
Tough words in a world of tough competition. We’ve heard several rumors about the hardware on [...]
We knew that the Samsung Galaxy S III is the hottest device at the moment (now in the U.S. too) but we didn’t think of it literally, like this unique specimen for instance, pictured above. It is apparently the International version of the Galaxy S III and it reportedly ended up in this stage while in an in-car holster.
It got sent back to the manufacturer for investigations and Samsung said: “Samsung is aware of this issue and will begin investigating as soon as we receive the specific product in question. Once the investigation is complete, we will be able to [...]
We’ve heard about the Oppo Finder and how it dethroned the Huawei Ascend P1 S in terms of thickness at the end of last month and now the 6.65mm thin smartphone is available for pre-order at a rather attractive price. If you’re in the market for the thinnest, the Oppo Finder is your best bet at the moment, until someone else shaves off a couple of microns. This begs the question, again and again, of when is a smartphone too thin?
Following the source link below you can secure a unit for ¥2498 which translates to $393. For the money you get — once it starts [...]
