Samsung Shares Shadowy Visage Of Galaxy S IV, Confirms 'The Next Big Thing' Is A Phone, Not An Actual Galaxy

It seems like just yesterday we were debating the legitimacy of a somewhat fishy photo leak from a Chinese forum and wondering what the deal was with that Jeremy kid and the glowing box. Oh, wait, that was today.

Well, in a somewhat unexpected turn of events, Samsung Mobile US has just shared what, presumably, is an image of the upcoming Galaxy SIV, shrouded in shadows and backed by bokeh. While getting a glimpse at an unannounced device is always an unexpected treat, this isn't the first time Samsung has let loose with shadowy depictions of hot new gadgets.

CyanogenMod 10.1 Nightlies Now Available For Galaxy R, C Spire Galaxy S III, CM10 For The Optimus L5

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.

CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies have officially landed for the C Spire Galaxy S III and the Samsung Galaxy R, and are available at get.cm for your flashing pleasure.

Samsung's Unicorn Apocalypse Is Real And In The Play Store, Apparently Sucks Pretty Bad

Samsung has been babbling about its Unicorn Apocalypse game for a while now. Turns out that it's not only a real thing, but it's actually in the Play Store. It also appears to be pretty crappy judging by the two-star rating. Ouch.

If you're not familiar with Unicorn Apocalypse, then you must've missed Samsung's campaign with famed director Tim Burton where the company teased it. Watch the videos above to get up to speed.

Samsung Posts Part 2 Of Its 'Jeremy' Galaxy S IV Unpacked Ad, Is Still Seriously Pointless

While Samsung often does do advertising right, I still don't really get what this Richie Rich-esque teaser trailer series for the Galaxy S IV is all about. Part 1 was unveiled last week, and today we've been treated to the second installment of A Boy Named Jeremy and a Cardboard Box That Says 'Unpacked' On It.

I'm guessing Jeremy and his mystical, light-producing parcel will be part of the official Galaxy S IV unveiling in New York later this week, and that there will be antics involved.

Sprint's Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Finally Getting Jelly Bean, Should Be Rolling Out Now

It's been a long time coming, but Sprint's version of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is finally getting updated to Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.1). There are quite a few reasons to pull this update, as it brings several enhancements over Ice Cream Sandwich, including Google Now, Project Butter (for smoothness), enhanced notifications, lockscreen widgets, and much more.

Aside from that, the update also brings a "Wi-Fi Qualcomm driver fix" so the device will automatically connect to the most recent Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as a "device self activation client update." Sounds intense.

Supposed Images Of The Galaxy S IV Show Up On A Chinese Forum, But Something Doesn't Add Up

We're four days ahead of Samsung's Galaxy S IV announcement event in NYC, and some alleged images of the device have made their way onto a Chinese forum. Before we even discuss the potential legitimacy, though, let's not forget that Samsung was able to keep the GSIII under wraps until the very day it was ready to show it off to the world. The company shared how it did that shortly after the GSIII's release, where it detailed the extreme security measures used to ensure the device remained a mystery.
