[Rumor] Is This The Galaxy S4 Zoom? It Certainly Could Be

SamMobile published an image this afternoon that really kind of explains itself: this is, purportedly, the Galaxy S4 Zoom. The concept is obviously pretty simple - it's a Samsung smartphone with a big-ass camera mounted on the back. Don't get your hopes too far up on the smartphone aspect, though, as even SamMobile is tempering expectations on the specifications. Allegedly, the S4 Zoom will be packing a 4.3" qHD display, dual-core 1.6GHz processor (likely a Qualcomm chip), 8GB of internal storage (with microSD slot, of course), and Android 4.2.2.

Action Launcher Gets Huge Update To Version 1.8 With Larger Configurable Grid Size, Icon Scaling, Shutter Improvements, And More

Tip: The Google Keyboard For Android Supports Text Expansion, Here's How To Use It

I'm a huge fan of text expanders. Seriously, they are necessary to me. As a regular user of both Mac and Windows, I have sought out solutions on both platforms and rely on them daily. That's why I've always felt horrified that there weren't any great options on Android. After all, mobile devices are already input-impaired, it only makes sense that we need quality shortcuts. As it turns out, such a shortcut has been under our noses for quite some time, tucked away where few would look and only available with the stock Android 4.1 (or higher) keyboard.

Kaspersky Researchers Discover Most Advanced Android Malware Yet

A new piece of Android malware has been discovered by security researchers at Kaspersky Labs. That by itself wouldn't be big news, but this Trojan does things no other malicious app has done.
