NTT DoCoMo Shows Off The 5-inch, 1080p, Quad-Core Panasonic ELUGA X In Its NEXT 2013 Series

In case there was any doubt that 5 inches is the new standard for Android superphones, Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo has removed all of it with a new hardware series. Right at the top of the list is a new device from Panasonic in their relatively young Eluga family, this one christened the ELUGA X P-O2E. The 5-inch LCD screen is naturally 1080p, and hides a 1.5Ghz quad-core Snapdragon Pro processor, and a 13.2 megapixel camera.

LG Optimus G Pro Announced For Japan: 5-Inch 1080p LCD, 3000mAh Battery, And 1.7GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon S4 Pro

When the specs of the supposed LG Optimus G Pro leaked last week, it seemed almost too good to be true – like one of those fanboy wishlists you see populating forums and sub-Reddits across the web. Now Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo has announced the device as part of its DoCoMo Next 2013 Spring lineup, and the reality matches the leak quite well.

Exclusive: How To Root NTT Docomo's LG Optimus G

The Optimus G on Japan's Docomo network is an interesting device, as it ships with a mandatory access control system that basically prevents remounting system, reading boot, executing tasks with root privileges, and things of that nature. Thus, the root process for this version of the Optimus G was a tricky one.

A backdoor found by Android hacker giantpune will be used, which allows the bootloader to be unlocked, a modified boot.img to be flashed, and some security features to be disabled – ultimately allowing root access to be achieved.

Samsung's Head Of Mobile Reportedly Confirms 8-Inch Galaxy Note Is A Go For MWC

At this point, we can be fairly sure an 8-inch Galaxy Note tablet is a thing that's happening. It has shown up in numerous benchmarks (as the GT-N5100), and supposedly packs a 1280x800 LCD display, which we can all but guarantee will be of the Wacom variety.

Now, Samsung's head of mobile JK Shin has allegedly confirmed the device's existence to Korean news outlet iNews24. The announcement was made at an invitation-only dinner with some of Samsung's newly-promoted high-level officers.

[Deal Alert] Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD $99 For New Accounts From Amazon Wireless

If you're looking for a solid LTE phone on Verizon, you'll be hard-pressed to find one better than the Droid RAZR MAXX HD.

And since this was one of the first phones to come out of the "new" Motorola, it should get better support than, well, all previous Moto phones.

[Deal Alert] Factory Unlocked International Galaxy S III $499 On eBay Daily Deals

Signing a contractual agreement to stick with a carrier for two years so you can get a decent phone without breaking the bank is a downright sham. Thus, many users are bypassing that system altogether by choosing carrier-unlocked phones like the Nexus 4. Of course, the N4 is on hiatus at the moment, so that's kind of out of the question. Don't fret, though – your dreams of a contract-free life aren't lost.
