Samsung: Galaxy S II, Galaxy Note, Galaxy R, Tab 7.0 Plus, 7.7, 8.9, 10.1 All To Get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

Samsung has finally made an official statement regarding its plans to upgrade current handsets to Ice Cream Sandwich (Android version 4.0), and the short list is indeed quite short:

  • Galaxy S II (including AT&T LTE version)
  • Galaxy Note
  • Galaxy R
  • Tab 7.0 Plus
  • Tab 7.7
  • Tab 8.9
  • Tab 10.1

Updates will start with the Galaxy S II and Note in Q1 2012, but that time frame likely applies to world versions of the phone, so those with American carrier-branded versions of the GSII will probably be waiting a little longer. The rest of the devices listed will "soon follow."

There are no mentions of any other possible candidates, so if your phone isn't listed, you can rest pretty well assured it won't be getting an upgrade to Android 4.0 from Samsung.

T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II Initial Impressions

The FedEx man brought me a lovely little gift yesterday: The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II. This is the last stateside arrival of the Galaxy S II family. The review will take a bit to get out the door, so until then I figured I'd whet your appetite with some initial impressions.

First of all, this thing is big. Really big. I have to say though, I love the design of it. It feels sturdy and very well made. Like Samsung really knows what they're doing. The plastic back has a wonderful texture to it that almost makes it feel like leather.

Sony's Tablet P And Tablet S Officially Unveiled

Sony has finally lifted the curtain on its upcoming Tablet S and Tablet P, formerly known as the S1 and S2, at today's IFA event. While there is little left to known about this dynamic duo, it's nice to finally get an official look at each of them.

Previously known as the S1, Tablet S is a 9.4-inch Honeycomb 3.1 tablet that comes in the normal 16GB and 32GB variants, along with the dual-core Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz under the hood. Around the outside of this wedge-shaped handheld you'll find a full size SD card reader, and five megapixel rear shooter.

Galaxy SII Variants For Sprint, AT&T, And T-Mobile Officially Announced - Coming Mid-September

The official Galaxy S II press conference has only just begun (it's streaming live now), but all 3 carriers we've been expecting to see the S II on - Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile - have already sent out their press releases.

The Galaxy SII is already available in Europe and Korea, debuting as Samsung's fastest selling smartphone to date. The 3 variants in the U.S. will share many of the same specs, but some aspects, such as the screen sizes, battery capacities, and mobile radios, will be different.

Here are some of the common specs:

  • Blazing fast 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor
  • Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 8MP camera capable of 1080p video - the S II takes some of the best video we've seen on any phone
  • 2MP front-facing camera
  • 16GB built-in storage
  • microSD card slot with support for 32GB
  • HDMI out at 1080p
  • Android 2.3 (most likely 2.3.4)
  • 4G of some kind (HSPA+ on T-Mobile and AT&T, WiMax on Sprint)
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • On-device encryption of user data
  • Voice Talk voice commands (this is not the same as Google Voice Search)
  • Screen Capture built right in (press the Power+Home keys simultaneously)

One specific spec worth highlighting is Samsung's Exynos processor, which should be quite a bit faster than the Tegra 2 that most dual-core phones have been using so far (with the exception of the TI OMAP on a few models).

Samsung Officially Announces The Tab 8.9 LTE And The Upgraded 1.5GHz 4.5" Galaxy S II LTE. Could The US S II Variants Have These Upgrades At Launch?

Whoosh - looks like we can take the report of upgrades to the already impressive Galaxy S II and the upcoming Tab 8.9 from the rumor bucket and place it carefully on top of the confirmed stack. In fact, the rumor was not only spot-on regarding everything Samsung just officially announced, it even had more information that Samsung didn't cover, which means some details will keep the rumor tag until we find out more.

Galaxy S II LTE

First up, the Galaxy S II LTE (hilariously misspelled as LITE in the official blog post in one place - it's anything but lite) is not only gaining an LTE radio, it's indeed getting bumped from 1.2GHz to 1.5GHz - still dual-core, of course.

AT&T, T-Mobile, And Sprint Galaxy S II Models Outed In Leaked Image?

Update: On further reflection, we're going to tentatively call this image a "rumor" for now, as we have no way to confirm its authenticity, but we have no reason to think these images are fake, either.

Finally, visual proof that unicorns do exist! Someone, somewhere, has leaked a shot of the upcoming Galaxy S II US market handsets headed for three of America's big four carriers (ATT, T-Mo, Sprint). Without further ado, here they are:

Where the image is from, we're not sure (pocketnow provided no details), but it could very well be a slide from Samsung's upcoming press conference to announce the arrival of the first US-friendly Galaxy S II phones.

Sony S1 And S2's New Custom UI Exposed In Leaked Screenshots

The Sony S1 and S2 tablets haven't exactly been the best kept secret in Sony's playbook, but we still haven't managed to catch a glimpse of that "heavily modified" version of Honeycomb, either -- until now. Thanks to some screenshots grabbed by CarryPad, we now have a better idea of what this duo of tablets will bring to the table. So lets have a look, shall we?

A quick look at the homescreen and settings menu. As you can see, the pair are already running Android 3.2, so they'll be up-to-date on launch day. The main Honeycomb launcher looks slightly modified, with quick access to favorites, and some possibly network connections via the WiFi icon up top.

[Video] Sony S1 and S2 Get A Quick Hands On

While Sony broke the news of its upcoming S1 and S2 tablets back in April, there has been little info surrounding the pair since then - until today, that is. German blog Golem got some hands on action with the duo, and even took the time to grab a really quick video of the S2. Before I go any further, have a look:

As anticlimactic as that is, it does give a better idea of the form factor of this dual-screened oddity. Golem compared the feel to a Nintendo DS, and noted that it includes an obvious Playstation logo, suggesting that this device is designed for mobile gaming.

  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • Front and rear cameras

And the S2:

  • Front and rear cameras
  • Wi-Fi and 3G/4G connectivity
