Thanks to a lack of innovation, multiple models of seemingly the same phone, and some questionable marketing decisions, LG's Android star has lost some of its shine in the last couple of years. The G7 wasn't a bad phone, per se, but it did little to distinguish itself in a crowded notch-heavy field. LG is hoping that two new G series variants will fare better. Read More
It was only a matter of time. Samsung just sent out invitations to the their latest Unpacked press event, this time labeled "Episode 2." It's scheduled for 1PM EST on September 4th, just under one month from today, before the annual IFA show in Berlin. Android newshounds will recall that the original Galaxy Note got its debut at the same venue back in 2011.
There's little doubt that new Note hardware will be the focus of this event: stylized text reading "NOTE THE DATE" is emblazoned on the invite. The Galaxy Note III is the obvious choice for a reveal, but as they say, it's not over until the fat lady sings. Read More
Mystery. Magic. Oversized phones and cameras running Android.

Watch it, love it, and think about how dang cool that camera really is. Read More

At the time it was said that Samsung would be announcing the Galaxy Note 2, which seems to be highly likely considering the event invite:
It doesn't really get any more obvious than that, so we'd be willing to put some money on the table that the next iteration of the Note will definitely be the highlight of the event. Digital Daily didn't stop with event details back in July, either; it also gave some pretty believable specifications about the device, noting that it could have a 5.5" display with a smaller bezel, which should keep the overall device size comparable to the Note 1.
