An unnamed Samsung exec hinted to the Korea Times that its upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S III, will include a next-gen quad-core Exynos chip that will incorporate LTE and WCDMA radios. Of course, such a revelation shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise since both its predecessors were built around home grown silicon… at least originally. According to the source, Sammy is trying to become more self reliant and distance itself from Qualcomm which has provided single-chip solutions for a number of the manufacturer’s high-end handsets. The new AP appears to be the 32nm slab of [...]
Korea’s ETNews is betting its reputation upon this raft of rumored details concerning Samsung’s Galaxy SIII. Since the only thing we know for certain is that it’ll be announced “After MWC,” lets take all of these tidbits with a strong pot of “We’ll believe it when we see it,” okay? According to the report, the handset’s going to be 7mm thick, helped by the company shrinking down its PCB, connector and chip sizes by between 10 and 20 percent. The only thing that hasn’t lost any weight is the camera, which may sit on a “protrusion” [...]
We’re still awaiting the release of the Samsung Galaxy S II on T-Mobile this week, and yet it’s already starting to look like yesterday’s half-eaten breakfast. That’s because some fuzzy details are now leaking out about its inevitable successor, the mystical Galaxy S III. The leaked presentation slide above, uncovered by Phandroid, shows a phone that’s packing a 1.8GHz dual-core Exynos 4212 CPU with 2GB of RAM and a 12 megapixel rear-facing camera. Oh, and a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display isn’t too shabby either. If this ends up being true, we’re [...]
Samsung Galaxy S2 Mini is for real. Samsung seems to like mini version of their every high-end phone. Galaxy S2 Mini seems to be a smaller version of the mighty Galaxy S2, which was announced at MWC’11.
Galaxy S2 Mini will have a 3.7″ display screen, 1.4GHz processor, 5 megapixels camera with flash and Android 2.3.
This phone is expected to launch in April to Three (UK carrier).
Sonim, purveyors of insanely overbuilt handsets that are virtually guaranteed to survive far longer than you, is back at it again at MWC this year with the XP3300 Force. Though it looks a lot like the models that have come before it, the Force has a unique claim: it alleges to offer the longest talk time of any cellphone in the world at 20 to 24 hours, which can be traded in for 20 to 24 hours of continuous GPS tracking, along with 800 hours of standby. Sonim hangs on to its ruggedness chops by casting the Force in a fiberglass shell with 1.5 millimeters of Gorilla Glass over the display, [...]

GLBenchmark 2.0 has finally been released to the public today nearly 2 years after being unveiled during MWC 2008. The opportunity was too good so I decided to run it on the HTC Desire HD and Samsung Galaxy S to compare the Qualcomm’s Adreno 205 vs the Power SGX540. I did a chart (posted below after the break) so you can compare the full detailed results of both handsets and not only the overall score. This is really important because only looking at the overall results is actually a bit misleading in this case. As you probably already know the PowerVR SGX540 is currently the fastest mobile [...]
It’s nothing that runs counter to the ongoing whispers we’ve heard so far, but according to Bloomberg and its pair of sources, Sony Computer Entertainment’s Tokyo event on January 27th is indeed the platform from which it’ll unveil the next PSP, and next month at Mobile World Congress will be where we finally meet — officially, that is — the PlayStation Phone. Next week’s press conference will also reportedly “outline a strategy to use its networked entertainment services to share games, movies and music among handheld products, TVs and other [...]
MWC is a few weeks away – it starts on February 15 – and we’re expecting to see a new version of Windows Mobile, version 7, to be launched with hardware soon to follow. We’ve heard some rumors about potential improvements over the current 6.x codebase, but a developer has told us that this new version is so distant from the old WinMo that it is almost unrecognizable. The worst part? It is completely non-backwards compatible, meaning all WinMo apps are about go extinct.
