Well, well well - it looks like the
unicorn black Galaxy S III may be real after all, at least according to MobileFun, a popular UK retailer which just put it up for pre-order for five hundred quid.
We first suspected the black version of Samsung's flagship may be coming after seeing several images of a suspiciously dark-looking device pop up on Facebook. Shortly after, Android Police obtained a shot of an internal Carphone Warehouse system clearly showing the black variant in its inventory. Read More
We've received some interesting information from an insider at Carphone Warehouse suggesting that a black version of Samsung's Galaxy S III is in the works, and we're inclined to trust it. Here's our evidence, from the company's internal product database:
If you recall, way back when the Galaxy S III was but a rumor-laden twinkle in our collective eyes, GSMArena received a similar leak from inside Carphone Warehouse confirming the white and blue colors the phone was launched in. Read More
A leaked image of an upcoming device for T-Mobile, dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q (a name that violates no less than three commandments) just surfaced over at TmoNews. As its [awful] name suggests, this appears to be a QWERTY-fied version of the Galaxy S Blaze, though the rumored specs actually point to a bit of an upgrade in the display department, as well:
- 720p display (size not mentioned)
- 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4
- 1GB RAM
- 16GB storage
- HSPA+ 42
- Slide-out QWERTY
- Android 4.0
By comparison, the Blaze 4G packs similar specs (sans keyboard), but with a meager 480x800 display and slower Snapdragon S3 (as opposed to the S4 in the Blaze Q). Read More
There's no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S III is the best phone on all four major carriers right now. If you're considering picking one up on Big Red (despite its locked bootloader), you can now score the 32GB version in white or blue from either Amazon Wireless or Wirefly. Yeah, we know: it's a tough choice. First you have to decide which color to buy, then which vendor to buy it from. Read More

Today, MetroPCS announced yet another addition to its stable of prepaid Android smartphones. One of the pricier off-contract handsets, the device retails for $459. So, what do you get for a significant portion of your rent for the month? Well, for a Metro PCS phone, it's actually a pretty decent spec list:
- 4.3" Super AMOLED display
- 1Ghz processor
- 8MP rear-facing camera w/ flash
- 1.3MP front-facing camera
- 32GB of "external memory"*
*Note: It's a little unclear what they mean by "32GB of external memory." The device's spec page also lists a 16GB memory card, so it may be that the device has an SD card slot that supports up to 32GB, but only includes a 16GB card. Read More

While that may not mean much for the bulk of the crowd in terms of actual usefulness, it's definitely good news for the development community. Read More

As you can see in the photo above, the device model this is being applied to is t he GT-I9300, which is the model for the international Galaxy S III. Read More
Rounding out the list of budget Android handsets for which details emerged overnight, it looks like Samsung will be releasing the Droid Charge look-alike Galaxy S Lightray 4G to MetroPCS in mid-August.
The Galaxy S Lightray is not your average budget device, though – besides a 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus display (carrying an unknown resolution), 8MP rear camera (with flash), 4G LTE connectivity and (maybe) a 1.3GHz single-core processor, this phone appears to be packing a TV antenna for "Mobile TV" (evidently powered by Dyle TV).
