Alleged Samsung Galaxy S III Shows Up On Video Packing A 1.4GHz Quad-Core Processor And 720p Display

Anyone who reads Android Police knows that we generally spend a lot more time debunking rumors and leaks than we do actually reporting them as valid news. With that said, this could be the best look we've seen at the upcoming Galaxy S III yet (if Samsung chooses to stick with that name, of course). While this is most definitely a real device, it's possible that it could be something different than the GSIII altogether, though I honestly doubt that Sammy would pack this kind of hardware into anything other than its highest-end flagship:

  • 4.6-inch 1280x720 Super AMOLED display
  • 1.4GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 16GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • NFC
  • 2,050mAh battery
  • Android 4.0

Okay, okay.

CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies Now Available For The OG Seven-Inch GSM/CDMA Galaxy Tabs

You can always count on the Android ROM development community to extend a device's relevance in the tech world. Take the OG Galaxy Tab for example - this little guy was the first Android tablet to hit the scene (running a phone-specific version of the OS, no less). It has been around for about a year and a half now, and there's no hope that it will ever officially be updated to anything past Gingerbread.

Samsung Files Trademarks For Galaxy Metrix, Velvet, and Legend; Motorola For Electrify Icon

Looks like Samsung and Motorola have been hanging out at the local trademark office again, as both companies have registered names of some upcoming devices.

Samsung registered three new names (because we know how much they love to release at least one new Galaxy device every month week): the Galaxy Metrix, Velvet, and Legend (cough HTC cough). Aside from that, we only know that all three names were registered as "goods and services: mobile telephones, smartphones." Surprise, surprise.

[Updated: Confirmed] Samsung (Probably) Sent Out Invites To A Galaxy S III Launch Event, Slated For May 3rd In London

While we're still keeping a raised eyebrow on this one, it looks like Samsung has sent out invitations to an event where they'll launch the Galaxy S III. Mark your calendars for May 3rd, and set your time zones for London time. Beyond those two tidbits of information, we have very little else to go on. Just take a look at the invite, sent to Tweakers.net, for yourself:

Unfortunately, we simply have to rely on Tweakers (a very large and established European gadget site) for the date, as it's not a part of the image the site has shared with us.

Samsung Announces Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 For $250 On April 22, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 For $400 On May 13

Samsung first unveiled its newest duo of Galaxy Tabs back in February at Mobile World Congress, but left one key element out: pricing and availability. That final veil of mystery has now been removed, as the pair are now officially official.

SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS AMERICA, INC. GALAXY TAB 2 7.0 

The Tab 2 7.0 is the replacement for the Tab 7 Plus, but doesn't offer a whole lot in way of upgrade:

  • 7-inch 1024x600 TFT display
  • 1GHz dual-core TI processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • 3.2MP rear shooter, VGA front camera
  • Android 4.0 with Touchwiz UX

What the Tab 2 7.0 does do, however, is hit a pretty nice price point: $250.

Download And Install The Official Android 4.0.4 (IMM76D) OTA For Sprint Nexus S 4G - No Wipe Required

Five days ago, Sprint announced that the Ice Cream Sandwich OTA was finally ready for the Nexus S 4G, but many of you still haven't received the update prompt. Yesterday, Google released the full OS image for the NS4G, but installing it does a full wipe, which may not be ideal for those just itching to upgrade.

Fortunately, the OTA link on Google's servers was finally found today by a number of AC forum members, which means you no longer have to wait for Sprint/Google and instead update your Nexus on your own.

Gingerbread (Build UCLB3) For The Samsung Infuse 4G Available Again, Might Actually Work Correctly This Time

A little over two months ago, AT&T released Gingerbread for the Samsung Infuse 4G. Turns out that it had some "issues," so the update was yanked, leaving many users with half-functional devices and others update-less.

After taking the update back to the lab and Frankensteining on it for a while, Samsung has now made available the new build (UCLB3 for those who are into knowing that sort of thing) for Infuse 4G owners.

Samsung Files Trademarks For 3 New Galaxy Smartphones: Sire, Lift, And Perx

The folks over at Fusible have discovered that Samsung has filed a trademark with the US PTO for three new names: Galaxy Sire, Galaxy Perx, and Galaxy Lift. While we don't have any details yet, we do know that we're looking at phones and not tablets - the trademarks were filed under the "Mobile phones; Smartphones" category.

Given the names, I'd guess we're looking at carrier-branded versions of the same device.

Samsung Producing MicroSD Cards That Are Four Times Faster Than The Current Generation

How many times have you thought to yourself 'you know, I have this super-fast device on a super-fast LTE connection, but my SD card is just too slow'? Even if you've never actually had that thought cross your mind, Samsung has an answer to this quandary: microSD cards that are four times faster than the current high-end cards.

These 16GB cards will offer a maximum sequential read speed of 80MB/s, which is quite a jump compared to the current high-end cards that are only capable of 21MB/s read speeds.

Back in February, U.S. Cellular announced its LTE network, along with the Samsung Galaxy S Aviator as its first LTE smartphone. The Aviator is officially available today for $199.99 after $100 mail-in-rebate and the signing of a two-year agreement.
