It's nothing new for images or specs of a device to leak prior to its announcement, but this time it does dash the hopes of some Android fans to bits. The Samsung SPH-L300 for Sprint was first leaked in a user profile that lacked any real information. It was put forth that this could be the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S III already in testing, but if this new leak is to be believed, this is a completely different and thoroughly mid-range device.
Keeping in mind that none of this is confirmed, the SPH-L300 has NFC, an unusual wrap-around metal (or fake metal) bezel design, and it's about 12mm thick.

We finally have a bit more info about the mysterious HTC Vigor - a device that we previously only knew about thanks to a leaked image taken by its 6MP camera. Now, though, this device is coming into the light a bit more, thanks to A NenaMark benchmark ran by an "anonymous" submitter. We now have a better idea of what this handset may be packing under the hood, and it sounds quite pleasing:
- 1280x720 display (!)
- Qualcomm Adreno GPU
- 1.5GHz processor (it's not clear whether it's dual-core or not, but we're hoping that it is)
- Android 2.3.4
- It appears to be running on Verizon's network
While this handset may sound pretty great, make a mental note that these types of benchmarks are fairly easy to spoof, so take it all with a grain of salt until we get more proof it its reality.

While the official Gingerbread OTA for the Incredible 2 started rolling out a couple of days ago, there are some users running a previously leaked version of 2.3 that are left out in the cold with no way of updating - until now, that is. Thanks to an anonymous tipster calling himself Pig Benis, we've gotten a hold of the official RUU from Verizon with the build number 2.18.605.4 (the same as the OTA) for your flashing pleasure.
This will get you up to date with the latest as of July 13th stock build from HTC, so if you're tinkering with your device and something goes horribly awry, you can use this to save the day.

Today, the crew over at TMoNews scored some shots and a few details of a new Samsung device, unofficially dubbed the "Exhibit 4G". As to not waste any time, let's get straight into the specs (keep in mind this is all unconfirmed):
- 3.7-inch AMOLED display
- 1.4GHz ARM11 processor
- 5MP Camera with 720p video capture
- VGA front camera
- Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread)
That's pretty much all of the details that we have for now, but here are a few shots of the device:
Like I said, this is about as unconfirmed as it gets, so take it for what it's worth.
