Samsung-Galaxy-S-Lightray-4G-headed-to-MetroPCS-reminds-us-of-the-Droid-Charge

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).

Sprint customers using Samsung's Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy SIII should expect an OTA update to roll in any time now, bringing some enhancements and fixes that – while not entirely exciting – are worth picking up.

The Galaxy SIII update brings the device's software up to L710VPLG8, and includes a handful of improvements, including enhancements to Samsung's Smart Stay feature, voice recognition, and the addition of All-Share Cast support.

The Galaxy Nexus, meanwhile, will be bumped up to IMM76K.L700FG01.

Well, this is awkward. While it was recently reported that Samsung removed the universal search feature from its international Galaxy S III devices, it turns out Samsung didn't mean to. Oops. According to the Korean manufacturer, the company only intended to remove the feature from certain US variants of the handset. Samsung told TechRadar, a UK-based tech publication, that the feature would be returning to the UK variant of the Galaxy S III.

GALAXY-Tab-7.7-Product-Image-1

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 has been banned in Germany for a while. Now, though, the 7.7" tablet is officially banned throughout the whole of the EU. Previously Apple was able to enforce a ban on the smaller of the Tabs because it has proven in German courts that it owns the design IP for black rectangles in reference to the Galaxy Tab 10.1. In Germany, Apple can enforce this injunction against the Tab 7.7 due to a principle known as "kerngleicher Verstoß", or "violation sharing the same core".

The waiting game for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has been going on for several months now, but signs that the release is quickly approaching just keep pouring in. The latest of the bunch is probably the best yet, as it leaves basically nothing uncovered.

Korean blog The Brave Post got its hands on what appears to be a retail version of the device, unboxed it, and took a slew of pictures along the way.

GALAXY_Note_10.1_Product_Image_(2)

When the Galaxy Note came out, the cynics and skeptics (myself included) scoffed. "Too big for a phone, too small for a tablet" we said. Well, as it turns out, quite a few people bought it. However, as much as some people may have liked the Note, it's hard to disagree that the stylus would feel more at home on a full-size tablet. Which is exactly what the Galaxy Note 10.1, shown in this shiny new ad, aimed to accomplish.

Earlier this week, Korean publication Digital Daily spread a few rumors of an upcoming Samsung event said to be happening in August where the company may unveil the Galaxy Note 2.

Guess what? We just got a save the date for a Samsung event on August 15th where Samsung will be "unveiling of the newest GALAXY device." It could be the Galaxy Note 2 - or perhaps the U.S. announcement of the Galaxy Note 10.1.

Normally, we don't get very excited about leaked images of mid-range devices. This one is no exception.

Still, it is a first look at a new device, so that counts for something.

What you're looking at there is a Samsung device codenamed Jasper. It's a mid-ranger with specs to match:

  • 1.5GHz Dual-core Snapdragon MSM8960
  • 800x400 display (ewww)
  • LTE
  • ICS

It's hard to say how large the display is judging by the image, but we'd guess it's probably around four inches.

Well, that certainly didn't go the way Apple would've liked. A UK judge presiding over one of many lawsuits involving Apple products—specifically concerning the Galaxy Tab line's alleged infringement of the iPad's design—has ordered Apple to publicly post on the UK version of its website that Samsung did not copy the iPad. Said the internet, "Oh, snap!"

The UK judge presiding over the case was the same one who made headlines recently for saying the Galaxy Tab lineup was "not as cool" as the iPad, and thus unlikely to be confused for Apple's slates.

While Verizon tries to figure out how to get people to want the Optimus Vu, T-Mobile has just announced that everyone's favorite phablet – the Samsung Galaxy Note – will be available on the magenta network "in the coming weeks." This isn't exactly a concrete timeframe, nor does it align with previous rumors of a July 11th release. It will also be interesting to see whether Sammy does indeed announce a Galaxy Note 2 in Berlin in accordance with recent rumblings.
