Yes, This Is Another "Leaked" Galaxy S III Photo, And We've Seen It Before

I want to start this post by saying, in no uncertain terms, I am just as sick and tired of the Galaxy S III rumors as everyone else - it really is getting out of hand. So, you can rest assured that I wouldn't be bringing this newest "leak" to your attention if I didn't think it had some merit. Here are the photos:

Now, we're pretty sure that the Galaxy S III is going to be model i9300.

Samsung Canada Announces ICS Upgrades For Various Galaxy S II, Tab, and Note Models; The Only Thing Standing In The Way Now Is Your Carrier

Samsung Canada has finished porting Ice Cream Sandwich to a whole bunch of devices, which in Samsung press release parlance means they are "eligible" for an upgrade. Does that mean you can hit that "update" button today and start downloading ICS? Well, that's complicated.

First though, the list of devices:

  • GALAXY S II
  • GALAXY S II LTE
  • GALAXY S II LTE HD
  • GALAXY S II X
  • GALAXY Note
  • GALAXY Tab 7.0
  • GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus
  • GALAXY Tab 8.9
  • GALAXY Tab 10.1

Now, for the caveats: Sammy says "The upgrade will be available today on select devices in Canada and will continue rolling out to devices and carriers throughout the quarter." and "The availability of the software upgrade and specific models upgradable to Android 4.0 will vary by market and wireless carriers' requirements.

Galaxy Player 3.6 Review: Well, It Runs Android, So I Guess There's That

The iPod may be dead, baby, dead, but that hasn't stopped Samsung from trying to enter the PMP market. The company's latest iterations of its Player line, the Galaxy Player 3.6 and 4.2, has landed and, not to put anything indelicately, but we're left to wonder why Samsung chose to enter this market, or what the company hopes to accomplish. After using the device for a few days, we're sure it's not going to shake up the media player market.

Samsung Announces 1.4GHz Exynos 4 Quad: A Quad-Core Processor Destined To Power The "Next Galaxy Smartphone"

Completely out of the blue Samsung has officially outed its next generation system-on-a-chip (SoC). The Exynos 4 Quad is very much what it sounds like: an updated version of the previous dual-core Exynos chip with four cores instead of two. Each core will be clocked to 1.4GHz, much like the last generation, and it is still going to be based on ARM's Cortex-A9 architecture.

Exy 4

I expected that Samsung would be moving to Cortex-A15 to more adequately compete with Snapdragon S4 and its Krait cores.

[Deal Alert] Expansys USA Drops Unlocked Galaxy Nexus To $399.99, Beats Google By Almost $50 With Free Shipping And Lack Of Tax

Just yesterday, Google started selling the Galaxy Nexus on its Play store. The news caught many off guard - not only had Google not done anything of the sort for quite some time, but the price ($399) was surprisingly low for an unlocked, contract-free device. Unfortunately, however, there was a catch: namely, the gadget was still subject to all the usual taxes and shipping fees (at least in all the states we tested - CA, TX, KY, MN, and likely many others), bringing the total cost up by almost $50.

Samsung Galaxy S III Makes A Cameo In Kies, Confirms GSIII Name And GT-I9300 Model Number

Well, what do you know - another Galaxy S III leak! Only this time, it's directly from the source. You see, the Galaxy S III has made an appearing in Samsung's own program used to manage its mobile devices, called Kies.

GS3-3 GS3-4

This basically verifies two bits of information: the device name and model number. There have been rumors that Samsung may call it something different and make it more of an incremental upgrade to the S II, but unless there's a change of heart between now and the release, it looks like it's officially going to be called the GSIII.

Galaxy Note For T-Mobile Spotted In The Wild, Probably Not Difficult Since It's Visible From Space

OK, as much as I like to make fun of the Note, it's actually a pretty awesome phone that a lot of people want, and so news that it's coming to T-Mobile is nothing to scoff at. Photos published by TmoNews all but confirm the gargantuan Galaxy is headed to America's pinkest (and leatheriest) carrier, giving credence to a UA string and some FCC filings unearthed last week.

[Lightning Review] Samsung EHS-71 Earbuds: Great Materials Do Not Equal Great Sound

There comes a time in every multinational electronics conglomerate's life when it tries to get into personal audio. Samsung isn't a particular stranger to the home theater side of sound, and some of its soundbar products actually review pretty decently. But a high-end headphone manufacturer, Samsung ain't. Search "samsung headphones" on Amazon, and you'll struggle to find anything costing more than $20.

The EHS71 is Samsung's first attempt to break into the premium earbud market.
