Samsung's latest phone is a "Quantum" leap forward

Galaxy A82 breaks cover again in new photos and video

Samsung's mid-range Galaxy A series is deep and wide, much more so than the mainline S series. The latest A phone to break cover is the A82, also referred to as the "Quantum2" in its leaked materials. It's a sequel to the Galaxy A Quantum announced last summer, which was a variant of the excellent Galaxy A71. The leaked specifications describe, as implied by its model number, a phone on the high end of the mid-range.

Samsung announces its own RCS service, will be intercompatible with other RCS clouds

RCS is designed as the (eventual) successor to SMS and MMS, but it's a bit of a mess right now. Several carriers have their own implementations of the standard, often incompatible with each other. Google's Jibe RCS Cloud is quickly gaining ground, but there's still only one US carrier supporting it - Sprint. Now Samsung has announced its own RCS cloud.

Samsung Announces The Snapdragon 800-Powered Galaxy S4 LTE-A For SK Telecom's LTE Advanced Network

Samsung Announces The Snapdragon 800-Powered Galaxy S4 LTE-A For SK Telecom's LTE Advanced Network

A little over a week ago, rumors of yet another Galaxy S4 variant hit the web, but this time it was packing support for LTE Advanced, the successor to the LTE we all know and love. That device is now official on Korea's SK Telecom, and it not only has support for the fastest mobile network on the planet, but also Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 800 chip. Early benchmarks of the device are in, and it crushes everything we've seen thus far – up to and including the "original" Galaxy S4. Take a look:

Past the Snapdragon 800, other specs of the S4 LTE-A seem to be largely the same – 5-inch Super AMOLED display, 13MP camera, and the like.

HTC Holiday Announced In Korea As The Raider 4G, No Word Of A US Release... Yet

Despite the fact that we've already seen the phone previously known as the HTC Holiday running on AT&T's LTE network, the first carrier to get this monster device will in fact be South Korea's SK Telecom. The phone will be released under the moniker Raider 4G, and packs some pretty serious hardware under the hood:

  • 4.5-inch qHD display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • 16GB internal storage
  • LTE
  • Android 2.3.4 with Sense 3.0

There's no word when this phone will be available outside of South Korea, but considering AT&T just started lighting up its LTE network and doesn't yet have a smartphone available that supports it, we expect a US announcement fairly soon.
