Android: A Look Back To 2012, And A Look Forward To 2013

Happy New Year! It's that time again; with the new year comes our new annual prediction post. I tackled this last year, and rather than do a bunch of crazy, pulled-from-thin-air predictions, I ended up with a link-filled research-fest for the year. It worked out pretty well, so that's what's on the docket for today. First though, I'll take a look and see just how many of last year's predictions and rumors came true, and provide some updates for the more important topics.

Huawei Set To Announce A 6.1" 1080p Phone At CES, Because Bigger Is Always Better–Right?

Every time I pick up my Nexus 7, I think to myself "you know, if this were 0.9 inches smaller, I'd definitely use it as a phone." Because there's no possible way I'd look even remotely silly holding something that large up to my head, right?

OK, that may be true about me personally, but it seems someone at Huawei had a similar train of thought, as the company is set to unveil a monstrous 6.1" 1080p phone known as the Ascend Mate at CES.

Motorola And Google Are Working On An 'X Phone' According To WSJ Rumor That Kind Of States The Obvious

Hey, so, this is crazy, but Google bought a smartphone company (Motorola), and now they're working on a smartphone together. Shocker. Snarkiness aside, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that, according to its sources, Motorola and Google are working on making a flagship phone specifically to compete with the iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy line. It is internally known as the 'X Phone,' and will allegedly be released in 2013.

At this point, if Motorola and Google weren't working on a high-end phone for 2013, I'd be worried.

Details Of NVIDIA's Tegra 4 Chip Leak - 28nm, 72 GPU Cores, Support For 2560x1600 Display Resolution

With CES coming up next month, we're starting to see more and more leaks that will likely materialize on the tradeshow floor. It looks like Chinese site Chip Hell has gotten its hands on one of NVIDIA's little secrets: the Tegra 4, which is codenamed Wayne.

The T4 looks to trump its predecessor in every way - much like the T3 did the T2. It uses the same 4-PLUS-1 core configuration as the Tegra 3, but it does so in a 28nm package - making it not only faster, but more energy efficient, as well.

Samsung To Unveil 8-Core ARM Chip In February

Eight cores, in a mobile processor? Balderdash! But according to EETimes, that's just what Samsung's planning on unveiling in February at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (that sounds so exciting).

Now before you get too excited, this isn't - technically speaking - an eight-core processor. It's a dual quad-core, which is to say, a two-processor chip. The design is based on a reference architecture thought up by ARM themselves, dubbed "big.little," and is designed to combine the light-load battery life of a high-efficiency quad-core 28nm ARM A7 chip with a super-hi-po A15 processor for heavy lifting.

[Rumor] Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean Update May Or May Not Arrive To Sprint Tomorrow, October 25th

I've been debating posting this all day for the reasons I'll explain below, but based on the feedback from a number of people who claim to be Sprint insiders, the information leaked earlier today in an XDA post by user supercholo may be legitimate. The leak suggests that the Jelly Bean update for Sprint's Galaxy S III may be arriving starting tomorrow, October 25th. Here is the alleged internal memo stating so:

Whether the memo is 100% legitimate or not, and whether Sprint actually follows up tomorrow remains to be seen - it's not the first time the company played tricks on its employees, and it's not the first time a software update was delayed.
