Samsung Device Creeps Through FCC, Is it the Galaxy 3D?

This weekend a new Samsung device, going by the code name SGH-I777 got FCC approval. The outline of the phone from the FCC filing bears a resemblance to a certain Galaxy S II we're all waiting impatiently on, but the top of the device features a small button or switch which is clearly not present on the Galaxy S II. What could this mysterious button be? A camera button? A self-destruct switch? Or maybe a 3D toggle...

HTC Planning on 6 to 8 New Devices Over the Rest of the Year

HTC has confirmed that they will release between 6 and 8 new phones and tablets before the year is out. Unfortunately, the looming eve of Windows Phone 7.1 (Mango) means that these new devices will not be exclusively Android, but HTC did say that our little green friend will be powering the majority of the devices. Let's take a quick recap of what we know, and what may be in store. First up we have the all but confirmed HTC Puccini, who popped up in some very official looking photos this week. The Puccini is a 10" tablet, HTC's first, running Honeycomb (presumably 3.1 or 3.2). The tablet has been seen hanging around the FCC where it showed off AT&T's LTE bands. We haven't heard anything official on AT&T's LTE network, but if its cleared the FCC, the Puccini can't be too far off. Next up we have the HTC Ruby, another definitely Android device. We don't know too much about this one yet other than that it is destined for T-Mobile. There is a similarity in the camera interface in a leaked photo to that on the MyTouch 4G Slide. Because of this, we are speculating it may be the newest MyTouch phone, but only time will tell. To top it all off we have the HTC Ignite (a recently leaked Windows Phone) and a slew of new codenames HTC just trademarked. So our count so far is 2 Android devices and 1 WP7. That is a majority all right, but only 3 devices. That means HTC's cooking up some fancy new Android toys for us that will be here before Christmas. [via SlashGear]

HTC Trademarks Several New Names, Has the Need for Speed

Here come the leaks boys and girls. HTC has just filed for trademarks on five, count 'em FIVE, new phone names. This is the first we've heard of the Cheetah, Raider, Titan, Skyrocket, or Velo, so we don't have much to go by. With names like that though, I'd bet "fast" may be in HTC's marketing future.

Samsung Galaxy R Pops Up in Video

Samsung's budget version of the Galaxy S II, the Galaxy R, is supposed to be getting official soon. A video showing off the Galaxy R and its Super LCD screen has found its way over to YouTube. The Galaxy R, also known as the Galaxy Z is meant to be a cheaper alternative to the sexier (if not a bit more cost inhibitive) Galaxy S II.

Samsung Flagship Keyboard Phone Going to AT&T

Well what do we have here? Well its not a Galaxy S II, so that's upsetting. It IS a render of a Samsung slider phone supposedly headed for AT&T sometime in the near future. Will this just be another mid-tier phone, or could it be a Galaxy S II variant (a la the Epic 4G)?
