LG Splendor Will Come To US Cellular On September 12th For $79 After $100 Mail-In Rebate With 2-Year Contract

We've got another budget smartphone on the way for you, folks. US Cellular is now picking up the LG Splendor, a mid-range Android phone with a 4.3" display, 5 megapixel camera, and a 1GHz processor, yet 2GB of RAM, which is rather insane for a phone this far from the mainstream. We're also told the phone will come with a 4GB memory card included. The storage is expandable, but it sounds like there is no significant embedded storage without the included card.

Samsung Releases Kernel Source For Yet-Unannounced Victory 4G On Sprint (SPH-L300)

You may remember Samsung's Galaxy Victory 4G LTE (formerly known as "Gogh") from some training materials we caught sight of just a few days ago. Well, while the device is still unannounced, good old Sammy has decided to drop the Victory's kernel source ahead of time for anxious developers and tweakers to get started on.

Samsung has had a good track record lately of releasing kernel source just after a device is announced, but releasing the code before we're even supposed to know about a device is pretty impressive.

[Update: Pricing And Availability] T-Mobile Makes The Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G Official, Available 'In The Coming Weeks'

  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor
  • 5MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • slide-out QWERTY
  • SAFE (Samsung Approved for Enterprise)
  • Android 4.0

Update: T-Mo just released official pricing and availability.

The Jelly Bean update started rolling out to the Sprint variant of the Galaxy Nexus three short days ago, but if you still haven't gotten it or are rooted and have been waiting to install it manually, you can now grab it directly from Google's servers.

Before flashing this, a couple of things need to be in order:

  • You must be on the latest Sprint OTA (FG01).

The Circle Is Complete: Galaxy Note II For Verizon Pops Up In Screenshot, Model SCH-I605

BriefMobile has received a screenshot this morning that would seem to confirm the existence of a Verizon-flavored Galaxy Note II, rounding out the phone's appearances on each of the US's "big four" carriers.

Last week, we saw the device leaked for T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T. We had figured, at that point, that Verizon wouldn't be getting the device. Particularly because it's selling the LG Intuition, which is the Note II's one and only phablet (shudder) competitor here in the US.

In a tweet earlier this evening, the recently resurrected evleaks Twitter account revealed what may be a variant of ZTE's Intel-powered Grand X IN phone which we saw at IFA 2012 headed for Boost Mobile.

Leaked Screenshots Reveal AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note II (SGH-I317)

Judging from a new leak released to BriefMobile by a "trusted source," it looks like the Galaxy Note II lineup is pretty much complete for US launch.

The source today provided BriefMobile with screenshots taken from an SGH-I317 unit (codenamed toIteatt) running on AT&T's 4G LTE network, and packing all the specs you'd expect from the original phablet's successor – Android 4.1.1. Jelly Bean, a 720x1280 resolution, and a quad-core 4412 Exynos processor.
